      Devitrite is a novel material produced by heat treatment of commercial soda lime silica glass. It consists of fans of needle-like crystals which can extend up to several millimeters and have interspacings of up to a few ...
    • Dewatering of fibre suspensions by pressure filtration 

      Hewitt, DR; Paterson, DT; Balmforth, NJ; Martinez, DM (AIP Publishing, 2016-06-09)
      A theoretical and experimental study of dewatering of fibre suspensions by uniaxial compression is presented. Solutions of a one-dimensional model are discussed and asymptotic limits of fast and slow compression are explored. ...
    • Dexamethasone treatment of pregnant F0 mice leads to parent of origin-specific changes in placental function of the F2 generation 

      Vaughan, O. R.; Phillips, H. M.; Everden, A. J.; Sferruzzi-Perri, A. N.; Fowden, A. L. (CSIRO Publishing, 2015-02-13)
      Dexamethasone treatment of F0 pregnant rodents alters F1 placental function and adult cardiometabolic phenotype. The adult phenotype is transmitted to the F2 generation without further intervention, but whether F2 placental ...
    • DfrA-thyA double deletion in para-aminosalicylic acid resistant Mycobacterium tuberculosis Beijing strains 

      Moradigaravand, Danesh; Grandjean, Louis; Martinez, Elena; Li, Hao; Zheng, Jun; Coronel, Jorge; Moore, David et al. (American Society for Microbiology, 2016-03-28)
      Para-aminosalicylic acid (PAS) is a group 4 anti-tuberculosis agent (1). It targets folate metabolism as shown in Fig. S1, which also summarises the known resistance mechanisms to this pro-drug (2). Recently, we reported ...
    • DFT+U Study of CeO2 and Its Native Defects 

      Huang, Bolong; Gillen, Roland; Robertson, John (American Chemical Society, 2014-10-14)
      We investigated the native point defects in CeO2 by the density functional (DFT) +U method, and using a non-linear core-corrected norm-conserving Ce pseudopotential. We find the neutral oxygen vacancy (VO 0) in CeO2 to ...
    • Diabetes and tuberculosis: the impact of the diabetes epidemic on tuberculosis incidence 

      Stevenson, Catherine R.; Forouhi, Nita G.; Roglic, Gojka; Williams, Brian G.; Lauer, Jeremy A.; Dye, Christopher; Unwin, Nigel (2007-09-06)
      Abstract Background Tuberculosis (TB) remains a major cause of mortality in developing countries, and in these countries diabetes prevalence is increasing rapidly. Diabetes increases the risk of TB. Our aim was to assess ...
    • Diabetes mellitus and pancreatitis in dogs and cats – cause or effect? 

      Davison, Lucy (Wiley on behalf of the British Small Animal Veterinary Association, 2015-01-14)
      Diabetes mellitus (DM) and pancreatitis are two distinct diseases encountered commonly in small animal practice. Whilst the clinical signs of DM are usually unmistakeable, a firm diagnosis of pancreatitis can prove more ...
    • Diagnosing focus 

      van der Wal, Jenneke (John Benjamins Publishing Company, 2016)
      Many tests have been used in eliciting focus constructions and determining what type of focus a certain linguistic strategy expresses. This paper provides an overview of the various diagnostics for focus, indicating how ...
    • Diagnosis of equine penile and preputial masses: A clinical and pathological perspective 

      Scott, V. H. L.; Hughes, K. (Wiley, 2015-10-20)
      Masses of the prepuce and penis are common clinical presentations for the equine veterinarian, encompassing a number of differential diagnoses. In such cases, it is important to evaluate the external genitalia thoroughly ...
    • Diagnosis of gestational diabetes: falling through the net

      Aims/hypothesis: Gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) is associated with increased risks to mother and child, but globally agreed diagnostic criteria remain elusive. Identification of women with GDM is important, as ...
    • Diagnosis of insulin autoimmune syndrome using polyethylene glycol precipitation and gel filtration chromatography with $\textit{ex vivo}$ insulin exchange 

      Church, David; Cardoso, Luís; Bradbury, Sonia; Clarke, Catriona; Stears, Anna; Dover, Anna; Halsall, David et al. (Wiley, 2016-10-03)
      $\textbf{Context}$ Insulin-binding antibodies may produce severe dysglycaemia in insulin-naïve patients (‘insulin autoimmune syndrome’ (IAS) or Hirata disease), while rendering routine insulin assays unreliable. $\tex ...
    • Diagnosis, investigation and management of hereditary spastic paraplegias in the era of next-generation sequencing
