2015 Advanced Materials  
spin coating of polymer solution requires direct contact with the organic material which can be damaged by solvents and the polymer layer has very poor gas diffusion barrier properties. [ 6, 10 ] ALD has demerits including high cost, long-processing time, low throughput, and vulnerability to external infl uences so that it is incompatible with low-cost, high-speed, and highthroughput R2R processes. Face seal encapsulation may not be suitable for R2R process [ 9 ] because face seal encapsulation

However, fl exible encapsulation method for use in the R2R processing has not been reported. Remedying this lack is a challenge in fl exible encapsulation research. Ideally, fl exible encapsulation methods must: i) use a simple process and structure, ii) be getter-free, iii) have effectiveness comparable to that of glass encapsulation, and iv) be easily used in R2R processes to allow mass production. We developed a novel fl exible encapsulation method to enable R2R lamination: Flex Lami-capsulation ( Figure 1 ) in which OEDs are encapsulated in a laminar structure that consists of a thin metal foil and a rubbery polymer layer (e.g., poly(dimethylsiloxane) (PDMS)). In this work, we used 0.6 mm thick stainless steel (STS) and 40 µm thick Fe-Ni alloy metal foil. STS and thin metal foil are unbreakable, fl exible, and lightweight, have high mechanical strength, thermal stability, and form an effective barrier against penetrating oxygen and moisture. [ 11 ] Our idea to use STS and thin metal foil is to exploit these advantages when STS and metal foil coated with a rubbery polymer layer are used as an encapsulant by a simple lamination process. [ 12 ] Flex Lami-capsulation has the target characteristics for ideal fl exible encapsulation such as simplicity, speed, low price, scalability, and suitability for encapsulating fl exible OEDs. Also, it can be easily applied in R2R processes. The Flex Lami-capsulation process includes treatment (Experimental Section) with a self-assembled monolayer (SAM) to increase adhesion between STS and PDMS. Then, a 25 µm thick PDMS layer was formed onto the SAM-treated STS foil by spin coating and thermal crosslinking. Adhesion between STS and PDMS yields long-term stability in device applications. Flex Lami-capsulation is compatible with R2R processes because the resulting structure is fl exible and can be laminated simply without any physical damage to underlying OLED stacks. In the structure of Flex Lami-capsulation, PDMS has three important roles i) The PDMS layer is an insulator, so the electrical conductivity of STS does not affect individual device function. ii) PDMS makes intimate contact with OLED stack, so no free space occurs between STS and OLED stacks; this process needs no getter because residual gas is almost completely excluded from the internal space. iii) PDMS forms a buffer layer to protect the device from outside infl uences. Moreover, to avoid degradation by water and oxygen contained in free volume Electronic devices based on organic materials can be large patterned, formable, and designable, and therefore have great potential for use in large-area fl exible electronics, displays, and solid-state lighting. [ 1 ] Consequently, organic electronic devices (OEDs) are being investigated for use as next-generation electronics and displays. [ 2 ] However, conventional OEDs are generally nonfl exible because they are fabricated on a rigid substrate and are encapsulated by hollow glass, thus they are not suitable for use in fl exible displays and lightings. To actualize fl exible OEDs, fl exible encapsulation processes as well as fl exible electrodes and impermeable substrates should be developed simultaneously. Another requirement is to reduce the cost for manufacturing fl exible OEDs. Therefore, a roll-to-roll (R2R) process can be used to fabricate them with reduced manufacturing cost and time because of its high throughput and largearea production capability for mass production. [ 3 ] OEDs are easily degraded by external or internal infl uences [ 4 ] such as oxygen and moisture so that R2R OED production must include an R2R-compatible fl exible encapsulation process, which is of prime importance for real commercialization of fl exible OEDs at a low price to increase their durability. [ 5 ] Several different materials and processes have been used to encapsulate OEDs. Currently, most OEDs are encapsulated in rigid glass due to its impermeability and the reliability of the process but it cannot be used for fl exible devices. Although glass encapsulation is most effective to achieve long-term durability of OEDs, it requires a large amount of getters to absorb moisture; getters are bulky and trap residual gases within the hollow space between the encapsulation glass lid, and the device and encapsulation should be performed in inert atmosphere such as nitrogen or argon. However, containing residual moisture or gases in the hollow space in glass lid encapsulants is inevitable because even the so-called inert atmospheric condition in N 2 -fi lled glove boxes is hard to provide perfect inert condition without any reactant (i.e., O 2 , H 2 O, and other gases). [ 5 ] Other methods that use spin coating of polymers, [ 6 ] atomic layer deposition (ALD) [ 7 ] of multiple layers of organic and inorganic thin fi lms [ 8 ] or face seal encapsulation [ 9 ] have been studied to develop fl exible encapsulation. However, Adv. Mater. 2015,

2021 Fire Science and Engineering  
Recently, car fires have been occurring on city roads (47.3%) and expressways (17.2%). Depending on the traffic conditions on the road, the growth of these fires can be delayed until firemen or a pump car arrives at the scene. In this study, application and utilization methods were derived based on car fire extinguishing experiments. To this end, a suffocation effect was induced using a car fire blanket and without using water in the event of a car fire. A car was ignited, and the car fire

We obtained metastasized melanoma tissue from a primary acral lentiginous melanoma (ALM) patient and established a melanoma cell line named primary culture of melanoma cell derived from lymph node (PML)-1. PML-1 cells had a light brown color and decreased the expression of melanogenesis markers, including tyrosinase (TYR), microphthalmia-associated transcription factor, and tyrosinase-related protein-1.

Among the candidate genes identified, we chose NAD(P)H:quinone oxidoreductase-1 (NQO1) for further study. Reverse transcription-PCR and western blot analyses showed that NQO1 was markedly decreased in PML-1 cells and in several amelanotic melanoma cell lines. To investigate whether NQO1 affects the melanogenesis, we treated the cultured normal human melanocytes (NHMC) and zebrafish with NQO1 inhibitors, ES936 and dicoumarol. Interestingly, melanogenesis was significantly decreased by the addition of NQO1 inhibitors in both NHMC and zebrafish models. In contrast, overexpression of NQO1 using a recombinant adenovirus clearly induced melanogenesis, concomitantly with an increase of TYR protein level. These results suggest that NQO1 is a positive regulator of the pigmentation process.

2008 Journal of Korean Endocrine Society  
Primary aldosteronism is a syndrome characterized by hypokalemic alkalosis and hypertension. Aldosteroneproducing adenomas and bilateral adrenal hyperplasia are common causes of this syndrome. An aldosteroneproducing adrenocortical carcinoma is a very rare cause of primary aldosteronism. Recently we experienced a case of an aldosterone-producing adrenocortical carcinoma. A 41-year-old female was admitted for evaluation of a retroperitoneal mass. Because of hypokalemia and a history of

We performed adrenal vein sampling for differential diagnosis of an aldosterone-producing tumor from a retroperitoneal mass. The adrenal vein sampling showed that the primary aldosteronism was due to an aldosterone-producing tumor from the left adrenal gland. Surgical findings indicated that the retroperitoneal mass originated from the left adrenal gland and the pathological diagnosis for the mass was an adrenocortical carcinoma. In conclusion, the results from the adrenal vein sampling, as well as the surgical and pathological findings demonstrate that this case was an aldosterone-producing adrenocortical carcinoma.

Results: The median follow-up period was 40 months (range, 0-70 months) vs. 42 months (range, 0-74 months) in RARC and ORC, respectively. Baseline characteristics of both groups were balanced. Blood loss (median, [range]; 300 mL [125-925 mL] vs. 598 mL [150-2,000 mL], p=0.001) and perioperative transfusion rates (23.8% vs. 45.7%, p=0.020) were significantly lower in the RARC group than in the ORC group. The overall complication rates were greater in the ORC group, but this was not statistically significant (65.7% vs. 64.3%, p=0.878). However, there were significantly higher major complication rates in the ORC group (45.7% vs. 26.2%, p=0.040). No significant differences were found with regards to MFS, CSS, and OS. Conclusions: While histopathological findings, overall complications, and survival rates do not reveal definite differences, RARC has more advantages compared to ORC in terms of estimated blood loss, perioperative transfusion rates and fewer perioperative major complications. We propose that RARC is a safer treatment modality with equivalent oncological outcomes compared to ORC.

Changes in the number of B-16 melanoma cells, as well as changes in morphology, melanin content, and tyrosinase activity, were measured and then compared with the normal control and the 10 −3 M arbutin groups. Also, the effect of phytoclear-EL1 on UVB-induced hyperpigmented lesions was examined through subjective and objective measurements. Results: In the in vitro study (p<0.05), the number, melanin content, and tyrosinase activity of cultured B-16 melanoma cells were decreased in the 5μg/ml phytoclear-EL1 group compared to the control group. On objective assessment with a chromameter, the 0.2% phytoclear-EL1 group had a larger difference in the mean L values before and 7 weeks after applying phytoclear-EL1 as compared to the other groups. On subjective assessment by both the researchers and subjects 7 weeks after applying experimental materials, the 0.2% phytoclear-EL1 group and positive control (3% arbutin) had higher scores than the placebo groups. These results demonstrated that phytoclear-EL1 in vivo and in vitro had an inhibitory effect on melano-genesis. Conclusion: Phytoclear-EL1 may be a candidate extract in the control of hyperpigmentary disorders. (Ann Dermatol 21(4) 369∼375, 2009) -
