Urinalysis with Molecularly Imprinted Poly(ethylene-co-vinyl alcohol) Potentiostat Sensors
Bin-Da Liu

Among many important biomarkers excreted in urine are albumin, uric acid, glucose, urea, creatine and creatinine. In the growing elderly population, these biomarkers may be useful correlates with kidney dysfunction, infection and related problems such as glomerular, proximal, and distal convoluted tubule functions, diabetes, hypertension and proteinuria. This study employed solvent evaporation …

Decision-making analysis for excavation construction methods of building foundations
Nang-Fei Pan

Excavation constructions of building foundations often cause accidents that bring about substantial fatalities or injuries of workers, competition delay and cost overrun, thus safety is a primary consideration in selecting an appropriate construction alternative among the foundation excavation methods. Although safety is the most important criteria, other important decision criteria such as cost …

New Cross-Coupled Filter Design Using Improved Hairpin Resonators
CHIH-MING TSAI

Microwave (3GHz~30GHz) filters are mainly for wireless communications and radar applications. They are responsible for signal selection and noise rejection. Therefore they determine the sensitivity and dynamic range of a system. There are two major contributions in this paper. First, we corrected the well-know, but not totally right, step-impedance resonator equation from Sagawa. Then, …

IL-20 is regulated by hypoxia-inducible factor and up-regulated after experimental ischemic stroke
Ming-Shi Chang

IL-20, an IL-10 family member, is involved in various inflammatory diseases, such as psoriasis, rheumatoid arthritis, and atherosclerosis. Our previous study showed that IL-20 acts as a pro-atherogenic factor in atherosclerosis. In this study, we investigated whether hypoxia in vitro and an in vivo model of ischemic stroke would upregulate IL-20 expression. In vitro, …
