Lithium Treatment Over the Lifespan in Bipolar Disorders

Constantin Volkmann, Tom Bschor, Stephan Köhler
2020 Frontiers in Psychiatry  
Lithium has been the treatment of choice for patients with bipolar disorder (BD) for nearly 70 years. It is recommended by all relevant guidelines as a first-line treatment for maintenance therapy. In this review, we outline the current state of evidence for lithium in the treatment of BD over the lifespan. First, we summarize the evidence on efficacy in general, from relapse prevention to acute anti-manic treatment and its role in treating mood episodes with mixed features and bipolar

As patients are often treated for many years and different aspects have to be considered in different phases of life, we discuss the particularities of lithium in the treatment of paediatric BD, in older aged individuals and in pregnant women. Lastly, we discuss the evidence on lithium's proposed suicide-preventive effects, the dangers of rapid discontinuation and lithium's adverse effects, particularly with regard to long-term treatment.

On Subfamilies of AT-Free Graphs [chapter]

Ekkehard Köhler, Derek G. Corneil, Stephan Olariu, Lorna Stewart
2001 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We introduce two subfamilies of AT-free graphs, namely, path orderable graphs and strong asteroid free graphs. Path orderable graphs are defined by a linear ordering of the vertices that is a natural generalization of the ordering that characterizes cocomparability graphs. On the other hand, motivation for the definition of strong asteroid free graphs comes from the fundamental work of Gallai on comparability graphs. We show that cocomparability graphs ⊂ path orderable graphs ⊂ strong asteroid

Falk Peter, Stephan Winnerl, Harald Schneider, Manfred Helm, Klaus Köhler
2008 Applied Physics Letters  
A large-area interdigitated terahertz emitter based on molecular-beam epitaxy grown GaInAsN with an additional AlGaAs heterostructure is investigated as a terahertz source for excitation wavelengths between 1.1 and 1.5 m. The optical and electrical properties of the emitter material exhibit absorption up to a wavelength of 1.5 m and have a resistivity of 550 k⍀ cm. Terahertz waves were detected by electro-optical sampling with a bandwidth exceeding 2 THz. Best performance is found for

Ecthyma Gangrenosum: Escherichia coli or Pseudomonas aeruginosa?

Mohamed Abbas, Stéphane Emonet, Thilo Köhler, Gesuele Renzi, Christian van Delden, Jacques Schrenzel, Bernard Hirschel
2017 Frontiers in Microbiology  
Ecthyma gangrenosum (EG) are necrotic lesions that develop in the context of Pseudomonas aeruginosa bacteremia. Isolated reports describe EG in the setting of non-Pseudomonal infections. In a patient with EG, initial blood cultures showed Escherichia coli, and almost occulted P. aeruginosa bacteremia. Based on the clinical picture we suspected preponderant P. aeruginosa bacteremia, outgrown by concomitant low-grade E. coli bacteremia in the blood culture vials. Methods: We performed
more » ... polymerase chain reaction (PCR) assays with specific primers for P. aeruginosa and E. coli on blood collected at the same time for blood cultures. We also performed quantitative cultures of the strains isolated from the patient's blood. Results: Quantitative PCR showed that there were 1.5 × 10 E 7 copies/milliliter (ml) of P. aeruginosa DNA, whereas the quantity of E. coli DNA was below the detection limit of 2 × 10 E 4 copies/ml. We estimated that there was at least 1000 times more P. aeruginosa than E. coli. Quantitative cultures showed that E. coli grew faster than P. aeruginosa. Conclusion: Our patient with EG had preponderant P. aeruginosa bacteremia, that was almost occulted by concomitant low-grade E. coli bacteremia. Quantitative PCR was complementary to blood cultures in the final microbiological diagnosis, and proved beneficial in establishing the etiology of EG. This may question the existence of non-Pseudomonal EG, and also shows that blood culture results do not always reflect an "exact picture" of what happens in the patient's blood at the time of sampling. This case illustrates the importance of communication between the clinician and the microbiology laboratory to ensure best possible results.

Optimizing Hollow Fibre Nanofiltration for Organic Matter Rich Lake Water

Alexander Keucken, Yuan Wang, Keng Tng, Greg Leslie, Tom Spanjer, Stephan Köhler
2016 Water  
Over the years, various technologies have been utilized for Natural Organic Matter (NOM) removal with varying degrees of success. Conventional treatment methods comprising of coagulation, flocculation, sedimentation, or filtration are widely used to remove NOM. An alternative to these conventional methods is to use spiral wound membranes. These membranes tend to remove too much hardness whilst being ineffective in disinfection. They also have a low tolerance to chlorine and thus, have limited

In this study, we investigated how an alternative and new innovative filtration concept, based on capillary NF membranes from modified polyethersulfone (PES), may be used to treat soft but humus-rich surface waters. Comprehensive performance tests, with a fully automated membrane pilot equipped with a full-scale sized test module (40 m 2 membrane surface), were conducted at WTP Görvälnverket, which is operated by the water utility Norrvatten, providing drinking water from Mälaren (SUVA = 2.7-3.3, TOC = 7.0-10.0 mg·L −1 ) for about 500,000 people in the northern part of the Swedish capital of Stockholm. The removal of both UV and DOC was modeled using a solution diffusion approach. The optimized parameters allow deducing optimal operation conditions with respect to energy, water consumption, and permeate water quality. Optimal cross flow velocity was determined to be 0.75 m·s −1 at 80% recovery and a flux of 12-18 L·m −2 ·h −1 . Under these conditions, 80% of the UV, 75% of the Humic Substances (MW = 600) and 70% of TOC were removed (from 8 to below 2 mg·L −1 ). A higher cross flow velocity led to marginal improvement (+2%) while both higher and lower membrane fluxes degraded permeate water quality. Apparent optimized diffusion coefficients for UV and TOC were around 1.2-2.4 × 10 −10 ·m 2 ·s −1 and were similar to values found in the literature. Due to their higher diffusion coefficients and higher permeability coefficient, only 40% of the low molecular weight acids (MW = 300-400) were retained. Approximately 30%-40% of the low molecular weight acids in the permeate can be further removed using GAC post NF. The resulting energy consumption of a hypothetical four-stage design, at average operating temperature of 5.73 • C, was calculated to be around 0.6 kWh·m −3 produced water. 430 2 of 25 and aquatic plants. The interrelation between NOM and climate change and notably the rising concentrations of NOM has attracted a lot of attention recently [1] [2][3][4][5][6][7][8][9]. Several potential factors, including an increase in air and surface water temperature, rainfall intensity, and atmospheric CO 2 and/or a decrease in acid deposition, have been proposed to explain the increased amount of NOM [10], but there is yet no scientific consensus on the issue [11] . NOM has a significant impact on drinking water quality directly, by reacting with water treatment chemicals contributing to disinfection by-product (DBP) formation [12, 13] , and indirectly, by impacting water treatment processes (including fouling of membranes and reducing the effectiveness of activated carbon for contaminant removal). In the recent years, reports worldwide indicate a continuing increase in the color and NOM of the surface water, which in turn, causes an adverse effect on drinking water purification [14] . Changes in the properties of NOM also influence the treatment significantly [15] . Therefore, the water industry has been focusing on improving current treatment processes and developing new applications for enhanced removal of NOM. One of the latest innovations in nanofiltration (NF) for effective removal of NOM, is capillary NF membranes which combine the chemical resistance of hollow fiber membranes with the organic retention of spiral wound nanofiltration [16, 17] . This new type of membrane (HFW1000) is suitable for raw waters that have low hardness and contain organic matter that are difficult to flocculate such as lake water. Recent studies indicated that a combined coagulation and NF process removed more than 90% of the dissolved organic carbon (DOC), and 96% of the absorbance at 254 nm in lake water [18], while using direct NF resulted in NOM removal with 93% in UV-absorbance (UVA) retention and 88% TOC retention [19] . An advanced autopsy of the hollow fiber NF membranes was conducted after 12 months of operation with no substantial changes to the membranes detected [20] . These results encouraged us to evaluate dimensioning parameters for the use of these NF membranes for direct lake water filtration. The transport of NOM through NF membrane pores is influenced either by convection or diffusion, depending on the hydrodynamic conditions and electrostatic interactions between the membrane surface and NOM molecules. Different mechanisms influencing the removal of small organic compounds have been suggested. The polarity and differences in diffusion rates in a non-porous structure may influence the rejection of small organic compounds in NF [21, 22] . The solution-diffusion model is the most widely used model of permeation in non-porous polymer membranes [23] [24] [25] while the Donnan steric pore model and dielectric exclusion model have also been used to describe mass transfer of electrolytes and neutral solutes through nanofiltration membranes [26] as well as to predict rejections of trace organics by NF membranes [27, 28] . The ability of the model to describe all non-porous membrane separation processes has been the subject of several reviews even in the past [23, 29, 30] . Since the selected capillary NF membrane for this study has been deemed to be a non-porous membrane [31] , the solution-diffusion model is used to obtain a design tool for prediction of permeate quality for different settings regarding filtration flux, cross-flow velocity, recovery and for different staging configurations. This paper describes and evaluates a 6-month (from January 2014 to June 2014) pilot test of hollow fiber nanofiltration by direct filtration of surface water from Lake Mälaren, a drinking water source for more than 2 million citizens. The pilot trials were conducted at Görvälnverket WTP and operated by the water utility, Norrvatten, providing drinking water for about 500,000 people in the northern part of the Swedish capital of Stockholm. Twenty short-term (<2 h) experiments, at a fixed recovery of 50%, with sufficient variations in filtration flux (5-25 L·m −2 ·h −1 ) and cross-flow velocity (0.25-1.0 m·s −1 ) were performed with a fully automated pilot plant to determine the solute diffusion coefficient and solute permeability coefficient to predict NOM retention (i.e., DOC). These short term experiments were complemented with a long term performance test of direct filtration at fixed filtration flux of 20 L·m −2 h −1 and fixed cross flow (0.5 m·s −1 ) but at varying recoveries (50%-90%) using the above-mentioned pilot plant. For all experiments, conventional NOM analysis (TOC, DOC, UV absorbance) was combined with LC-OCD Water 2016, 8, 430 3 of 25 analysis for feed water, concentrate and permeate to elucidate the retention of specific NOM fractions as a function of varying operation conditions.

2013 International Journal of Epidemiology  
The Likoma network study (LNS) investigates the sexual networks connecting the inhabitants of Likoma, a small island of Lake Malawi with high HIV prevalence. Whereas previous studies of sexual networks and HIV/AIDS in sub-Saharan countries have focused solely on the personal networks of a small number of respondents, the LNS attempts to document the sexual networks of the entire adult population of Likoma. To do so, it uses a unique sociocentric study design, in which all members of the local

Using these data, quasi-complete 'maps' of the sexual networks connecting inhabitants of the island can be constructed. These maps allow investigation of the impact of networks on HIV epidemiology and can inform mathematical models of HIV prevention. In addition to data on sexual networks, the LNS data include information on the social networks (e.g. friendship), socioeconomic characteristics and HIV status of Likoma's residents. Baseline data were collected in 2005-06. A first follow-up was conducted in 2007-08 and a second follow-up is planned for early 2013. Access to the LNS data is contingent upon review of a short concept paper and forming collaborations with LNS investigators.
