Inhibition of glioma growth by minocycline is mediated through endoplasmic reticulum stress-induced apoptosis and autophagic cell death
Po-Wu Gean

Malignant gliomas are among the devastating cancers. Despite advances in the diagnosis and treatment, the prognosis of patients with malignant gliomas remains very poor. Therefore, exploration of a new approach is timely needed.

Minocycline, a second-generation tetracycline, has marked neuroprotective properties in various models of neurological diseases. In the previous study, we had …

The activation of CEBPD in M2 macrophages contributes to the progression of tumorigenesis
Ju-Ming Wang

Recent studies showed that chronic inflammation increases the risk of normal cells to become tumorigenic and enhances cancer cell metastasis and invasion. Tumor-associated macrophages (TAM) are the most abundant immune cells within the tumor stroma and are required for a number of functions important for tumor progression, such as promoting tumor cell proliferation, angiogenesis, incessant matrix …

Electrically conductive ultrananocrystalline diamond films for biocompatible all-carbon heaters and corrosion resistant long-life lithium ion battery
Yon-hua Tzeng

Grain boundary engineering of chemically vapor deposited nitrogen-incorporated ultrananocrystalline diamond (NUNCD) provides both excellent properties of a diamond coating and optimized electrical resistivity by design for novel applications. Nitrogen induced graphitic carbon formed in grain boundaries of a matrix of UNCD grains of 2-10 nm in sizes promotes the electrical conductivity and …

Reflection of Typhoon Morakot – The Challenge of Compound Disaster Simulation
Chjeng-Lun SHIEH

Climate change has altered how disasters occur. In Taiwan, because of increasing intensity and frequency of extreme rainfall events. The compound disasters can combine small-scale floods, debris flows, shallow landslides, deep-seated landslides, and landslide lakes into a large-scale single disaster event. This commonly occurs when the accumulative rainfall (R) is smaller than 1000 mm with …
