HDL-P was also a strong and independent predictor of CCVD status in a clinical population.
3] Nonstandard abbreviations: HDL-C, high-density-lipoprotein cholesterol; CVD, cardiovascular disease; apo, apolipoprotein; ABCA1, ATP-binding cassette transporter 1; HDL-P, HDL particles; NMR, nuclear magnetic resonance; IMA, ion mobility analysis; ESI, electrospray ionization; rHDL, reconstituted HDL; CCVD, carotid cerebrovascular disease; pI, isoelectric point; S-HDL, small HDL; M-HDL, medium HDL; L-HDL, large HDL.
The CCVD should look at the USAF Academy program as a benchmark to enhance core value training in all of the officer accession programs.
The first task of the CCVD should be to standardize the honor code policy among all three of the officer accession programs.
The CCVD should look at this option for the USAF Academy and evaluate its feasibility at AFROTC units as well.
The CCVD should ensure case studies covering the Lavelle incident, the Black Hawk shoot-down, and crashes of the Fair-child B-52 and Ramstein CT-43 are a part of all officer training curriculum.
With the CCVD directing the best possible core values education at all three officer training schools, core values will become ingrained in future Air Force officers.
MCT's proprietary CCVD technology has the potential to decrease our catalyst loading and assist in reducing costs and improving performance, while providing manufacturing flexibility," said Kip Smith, Ballard's President and Chief Operating Officer.
Andrew Hunt, MCT's founder and CEO, said, "Our relationship with Ballard began over three years ago, and we are excited about the potential incorporation of CCVD technology in PEM fuel cells.
MCT's proprietary CCVD technology is an innovative open-atmosphere, flame-based technique for depositing high-quality thin films of advanced materials.
MicroCoating Technologies, headquartered in Atlanta, GA, focuses on next-generation products for Broadband, Advanced Energy and Electronics through enhanced performance, new functionality and scalability of its CCVD technology.
Two types of CNFs used in this work were VGCF and vapor-grown carbon nanofibers (VGNF) produced by the CCVD
