    second part of this work is dedicated to the growth of Aluminum doped ZnO (AZO) and pure ZnO thin films on polymer substrates and on glass substrate for a comparison and the application in organic solar cells. The motivation of this part of the work is that the replacement for ITO in photovoltaic applications was tried. AZO and ZnO thin films were grown on the polymers Polyethylene terephthalate (PET) and Fluorinated ethylene propylene (FEP) by PLD method. The smooth Al doped ZnO thin films with resistivity ([rho] 80%) in visible range were grown on PET at oxygen pressure 10-3 mbar, laser fluence F = 1 J/cm2, at temperature TS = 20-175°C. The figure of merit (FOM) for the films is equal to 0.72*10-3 Ω-1. The morphology of the films was investigated by Optical Microscopy (OM) and Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM), resistivity of the films was measured by 4 point method and optical transmission was measured by Spectrophotometer Cary 500. AZO thin films on PET are used as electron transport layer in organic solar cells with inverted structure. The sample structure was PET/AZO/ZnO/P3HT:PCBM/MoO3/Ag. The power conversion efficiency (PCE) is ⁓ 2.1 % for these organic solar cells. AZO films on FEP have wrinkles and resistivity ([rho] ⁓ 10 mΩ cm) and the change of PLD parameters does not improve the quality of the films. AZO and ZnO films were analyzed by Rutherford Backscattering Spectrometry (RBS). ZnO thin films can be stochiometrically grown on PET at pressure p = 10-1 mbar in O2 and AZO films are stochiometrically grown on PET at pressure p = 10-3 mbar in O2.(Cooperation with Prof. N. Serdar Sariciftci and Prof. Peter Bauer, Johannes Kepler University Linz). It is interesting to improve the electrical properties of AZO thin films on polymer substrates and eventually the PCE of the organic solar cells made from these samples. (author) [de

It is a significant cause of mortality. Multidetector computed tomography (MDCT has been an increasingly used method to evaluate chest trauma because of its high success in detecting tissue and organ injuries. Herein, we aimed to present MDCT findings in patients with blunt and penetrating chest trauma admitted to our department. Methods: A total of 240 patients admitted to the emergency department of our hospital between April 2012 and July 2013 with a diagnosis of chest trauma who underwent MDCT evaluations were included. Most of the patients were male (83.3% and victims of a blunt chest trauma. The images were analyzed with respect to the presence of fractures of bony structures, hemothorax, pneumothorax, mediastinal organ injury, and pulmonary and vascular injuries. Results: MDCT images of the 240 patients yielded a prevalence of 41.7% rib fractures, 11.2% scapular fractures, and 7.5% clavicle fractures. The prevalence of thoracic vertebral fracture was 13.8% and that of sternal fracture was 3.8%. The prevalence of hemothorax, pneumothorax, pneumomediastinum, and subcutaneous emphysema was 34.6%, 62.1%, 9.6%, and 35.4%, respectively. The prevalence of rib, clavicle, and thoracic vertebral fractures and pulmonary contusion was higher in the blunt trauma group, whereas the prevalence of hemothorax, subcutaneous emphysema, diaphragmatic injury, and other vascular lacerations was significantly higher in the penetrating trauma group than in the blunt trauma group (p<0.05. Conclusion: MDCT images may yield a high prevalence of fracture of bony structures, soft tissue lacerations, and vascular lesions, which should be well understood by

Methods: From March 2011 to June 2015, female patients with operable breast cancer who had received docetaxel- or paclitaxel-containing adjuvant chemotherapy were included in this study. All patients were treated with single-agent paclitaxel intravenously (IV 175 mg/m2 every 3 weeks for four cycles, or IV 80 mg/m2 weekly for 12 cycles, and IV 100 mg/m2 docetaxel for four cycles as adjuvant treatment. We evaluated the relationship between neurotoxicity of taxanes and single-nucleotide polymorphisms of ABCB1, CYP3A4, ERCC1, ERCC2, FGFR4, TP53, ERBB2, and CYP2C8 genes. Taxane-induced neurotoxicity during the treatment was evaluated according to the National Cancer Institute Common Toxicity Criteria version 4.03 prior to each cycle. Chi-squared tests were used to compare the two groups, and multivariate binary logistic regression models were used for determining possible risk factors of neuropathy. Results: Pharmacogenetic analysis was performed in 219 females. ABCB1 3435 TT genotype had significantly higher risk for grade ≥2 neurotoxicity (odds ratio [OR]: 2.759, 95% confidence interval [CI]: 1.172–6.493, P: 0.017 compared to TC and CC genotype, and also CYP3A4 392 AA and AG genotype had significantly higher risk for grade ≥2 neurotoxicity (OR: 2.259, 95% CI: 1.033–4.941, P: 0.038 compared to GG genotype.

MARsite is thus expected to move a "step forward" the most advanced monitoring technologies, and offering promising open databases to the worldwide scientific community in the frame of other European environmental large-scale infrastructures, such as EPOS (http://www.epos-eu.org/ ). Among the 11 work packages (WP), the main aim of the WP6 is to study seismically-induced landslide hazard, by using and improving observing and monitoring systems in geological, hydrogeotechnical and seismic onshore and offshore areas. One of the WP6 specific study area is the Avcilar Peninsula, situated between Kucukcekmece and Buyukcekmece Lakes in the north-west of the region of Marmara. There, more than 400 landslides are located. According to geological and geotechnical investigations and studies, soil movements of this area are related to underground water and pore pressure changes, seismic forces arising after earthquakes and decreasing sliding strength in fissured and heavily consolidated clays. The WP6 includes various tasks and one of these works on a methodology to develop a dynamic system to create combined earthquake and rainfall induced landslides hazard maps at near real time and automatically. This innovative system could be used to improve the prevention strategy as well as in disaster management and relief operations. Base on literature review a dynamic GIS platform is used to combine
