Clinical Urology: Case ReportAngiocentric Lymphoma of the Kidney in the Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome

ABSTRACTAngiocentric lymphoma, which is the malignant counterpart of angiocentric immunoproliferative lesions, comprises a rare group of nonHodgkin's lymphomas of T-cell origin. It is characterized by marked invasion and destruction of small vessels by lymphomatoid cells, predominantly in the lungs. The prognosis is poor and many patients die within several months. To our knowledge primary involvement of the genitourinary tract has not been previously reported. We report a case of a solitary primary angiocentric lymphoma of the kidney in a patient with the acquired immunodeficiency syndrome. Therapy consisted of nephrectomy without adjuvant treatment. Histological characteristics as well as diagnostic and therapeutic options are discussed.

Improvement of the phase transition homogeneity of superheated superconducting tin granules

AbstractA considerably improved phase transition homogeneity was observed with superheated superconducting Sn spheres as a result of laser melting and fast cooling. These spheres exhibited a very homogeneous phase transition behaviour independent of the orientation of the spheres with respect to the direction of the external magnetic field. Compared to previously untreated Sn spheres the spread of the phase transition boundaries was reduced by almost an order of magnitude. In addition, we studied mass production of Sn structures using vacuum evaporation and deposition. First encouraging results are reported.

Cost model for commercial plasma source ion implantation

AbstractA spreadsheet based cost model was used to explore the installation and operating costs for a PSII system based on various operating conditions and equipment configurations. It was found that plasma density and implantation voltage were operating specifications which can significantly affect capital costs. The plasma density is an important factor since operating at lower plasma density levels requires larger vacuum chambers and pump systems which significantly increase capital costs. Comparisons of the cost efficiency of operating at relatively high versus low implantation voltages were made. Results indicated that high dosage levels favor a higher implant voltage whereas high plasma densities favor a lower voltage, with the plasma density being the dominant factor. When capital expenses are amortized, the cost of operation comprises the majority of total annual costs, with personnel expenses being the most significant of these. Therefore, any cost comparisons with other technologies should emphasize the number and expertise (salary) of personnel.

The ORPHEUS dark matter experiment

AbstractThe ORPHEUS dark matter experiment iis being built and most of it is already installed at our underground facility in Bern (70 m.w.e). The detector relies in an initial phase on 0.45 kg (1.6 kg maximum capacity) superheated superconducting tin granules (SSG) to measure recoils from weakly interacting massive particles (WIMPs). The actual status of the installation as well as parallel ongoing studies are presented.

First runs with the ORPHEUS dark matter detector

AbstractThe ORPHEUS dark matter experiment is completed at our shallow depth laboratory in Bern (70 m.w.e.). The detector relies on measuring the magnetic flux variation produced by weakly interacting massive particles (WIMPs) as they heat 30 μm diameter superheated superconducting tin granules (SSG) and induce superconducting-to-normal phase transitions. In an initial phase, 0.45 kg of tin granules in a segmented detector volume have been used. Preliminary results of the experiment will be reported.

Circulating adipocyte fatty acid binding protein is increased in chronic and acute renal dysfunction

Highlights•The adipokine AFABP significantly increases with increasing eGFR category.•Renal dysfunction is a strong positive predictor of AFABP in chronic kidney disease.•AFABP is increased after unilateral nephrectomy as compared to pre-surgical values.•AFABP is increased in rats after nephrectomy as compared to sham-operated rats.•Measures of renal function are major determinants of AFABP serum levels.

Hierarchically structured carbon/carbon nanocomposites with adjustable porosity fabricated by twin polymerization

Highlights•Synthesis of hierarchically structured porous carbon materials by surface twin polymerization.•Mesoporous carbon materials with a microporous shell were prepared by twin polymerization on carbon black particles.•The shell thickness is adjustable by the amount of twin monomer used for polymerization.•Consecutive polymerization of two different twin monomers on Stöber particles leads to double-shelled carbon hollow spheres.•The hierarchically structured porosity was investigated by nitrogen sorption measurement and mercury porosimetry.
