|Title:||Silver nanoparticles dispersed on silica glass for applications as photothermal selective material|
|Abstract:||The purpose of this study was to assess the association between the serum levels of aminoterminal propeptide of type III procollagen (PIIINP) and carboxyterminal propeptide of type I procollagen (PICP) with disease activity and damage in systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). Thirty-three patients with SLE were compared with 31 controls. The assessment in SLE included disease activity indices (SLEDAI, MEX-SLEDAI) and damage index (SLICC/ACR). PIIINP and PICP were measured by radioimmunoassay. Compared with controls, mean levels of PIIINP were higher in SLE (2.9 1.8 vs. 1.8 1.2, P = 0.006). PICP was also increased in SLE versus controls (163 94 vs. 102 62, P = 0.007). PIIINP was correlated with SLICC/ACR (r = 0.33, P = 0.048). No correlation was observed between PICP and PIIINP with other clinical or therapeutic variables. These preliminary data suggests a role of PIIINP as a marker for chronic damage. Follow-up studies are required to evaluate its utility in predicting future damage.

Gonzalez-García., F.",,"2014",,"Silver nanoparticles dispersed into a resin are deposited on silica glasses by the spin coating method and heated around 100 °C. UV-VIS measurements show high stability of the optical spectra after heat treatment, suggesting that the morphology of the silver nanoparticles are stable. The transmission electronic microscopy images exhibit huge spherical aggregates and prolate silver nanoparticles. In order to evaluate the roughness and solar optical properties, reflectance spectra, atomic force microscopy and perfilometric measurements are performed. The chemical composition and morphology of the films are analyzed by energy-dispersive X-ray spectroscopy, EDX. The optical properties of the films show high absortance and low emissivity in the visible and near infrared range, respectively, suggesting their potential use as photothermal selective materials with good thermal stabilization. This feature is an important prerequisite of coatings for the solar collector manufacturing. The optical properties, the thin film thickness and roughness are correlated among them to understand the selective response of the coatings. " 2014 The Authors Published by Elsevier Ltd.
