... The dataset includes several Excel sheets, each listing the records obtained from Patstat online database (https://data.epo.org/expert-services/index.html) by means of SQL queries run in Patstat online (Autumn 2017 ed.). Such investigation is aimed at retrieving patent documents data including in particular: • the individual patent application identification code (appln_id attribute in the table), • the application authorities (i.e. the patent offices to whom the patent applications are filed), • the earliest filing year, • the docdb_family_id code univocally identifying a single patent family (a.k.a. DOCDB family), • the patent applications titles and abstracts, • the classification codes (IPC and CPC, respectively) assigned to each patent application, • the patent publication authority, • the patent publication number, • the patent publication kind, • the denomination of each assignee/applicant (psn_name) and • the type of applicant (psn_sector allowing for distinguishing companies, universities, individuals etc. among applicants/assignees). PDF files (named as the corresponding Excel) may be present. Each provides lists of the documents downloadable from PATSTAT online. The number of documents corresponds to the amount of non-duplicated appln_id values (eg. 1125 for PHASE A in the pdf, as arguable from the PHASE A Excel file). URLs are provided for each record to link to Espacenet (https://worldwide.espacenet.com/) • PHASE A TABLE concern a broad search regarding glass recycling. • PHASE B concerns a more specific search, based on keywords AND IPC/CPC codes, regarding recycling of laminated glass by means of mechanical comminution. Data rather based on keywords are argued from PHASE B_query A. Records selected by means of cpc code Y02W30/521 are included in PHASE B Query B TABLE. • PHASE C Query C1 TABLE concerns recycling of glass with poly-vinyl-butyral interlayer (PVB) • PHASE C Query C2’ TABLE concerns recycling of glass with ethyl-vinyl-acetate interlayer (EVA) • PHASE C Query C2’’ TABLE concerns recycling of glass with (thermoplastic) poly-urethane interlayer (TPU). One file with SQL scripts not detailed in other publications is included (PATSTAT SCRIPTS). The file contains two scripts to be run with Patstat: the former is aimed at ranking the patent families depending on the co-occurrence of IPC classification codes, while the latter is aimed at ranking the granted patents depending on the number of annual fee payments and the date of patent validity expiration. SQL scripts are included in a manuscript submitted to Data in Brief journal, accompanying the manuscript submitted to World Patent Information for review (WPI_2018_95 _R1).

... Maternal mortality is a global concern and a consensus has been reached that the health of mothers and children is an important indicator of national health and the socio-economic development of countries. In 2015 the reduction of maternal mortality was adopted in the global and national initiatives for improving maternal health under Sustainable Development Goals(SDG). Despite the commitment set out in SDGs maternal mortality remains high, Zimbabwe is among the 40 countries in the world with high maternal mortality rate. There was need to analyse the causes for such high maternal mortalityhence the need for this research.The objective of the study was to determine the factors associated with maternal survival of pregnant mothers at Mpilo Central Hospital. The results of the study could help reduce maternal mortality. Data were entered into Stata12.1 statistical package. Univariate statistics were performed and presented as frequencies and percentages for categorical variables. We used Variance Inﬂated Factor (VIF) to test for multi-collinearity for all the candidate explanatory variables. Binary logistic regression was used to calculate the probability of maternal death given different variables. A p value < 0.05 was taken as statistically significant. 95% Conﬁdence Interval (CI) was used. The Cox proportional hazard model was used on the factors which were found to be statistically significant in maternal mortality to analyze if they have an effect on the survival time of patients. The p-value of our model was <0.0001 which identified that the model fits the data and can be used to predict survival. Kaplain Meir survival curves were used to compare survival of patients with respect to their booking status. Using binary logistic regression, the following were statistically significant associated with maternal death: age (OR 3.434, 95% CI 1.508-7.819, p=0.003), education level (OR 0.114, 95% CI 0.018-0.724, p=0.021), booking status (OR 29.547, 95% CI 8.016-111.290, p=0.001), ANC visits (OR 2.549, 95% CI 1.732-3.750, p = 0:001), PPH (0R 3.302, 95% CI 1.291-8.447, p=0.013), PIH(OR 0.010, 95% CI 0.001-0.112, p=0.001), APH (OR 3.941, 95% CI 1.371-11.329, p=0.011), sepsis (OR 5.358, 95% CI 1.792-16.022, p=0.003), retroviral infection (OR 8.466, 95% CI 1.921-37.320, p=0.005), anaemia (OR 5.647, 95% CI 1.491-21.383, p=0.011), other mode of deliveries which includes vacuum and forceps (OR 21.751, 95% CI 2.305-205.276, p=0.007) and miscarriages (OR 6.995, 95% CI 1.813-26.987, p=0.005). Using Cox regression, the following were found to be statistically significant; patients who did not book their pregnancies (HR 5.196, 95% CI 2.342-11.527, p=0.001), PPH (HR 1.790, 95% CI 1.097-2.919, p=0.020), PIH (HR 0.071, 95% CI 0.010-0.515, p=0.009), APH (HR 2.153, 95% CI 1.345-3.447, p=0.001) and ANC visits (HR 1.379, 95% CI 1.039-1.739, p=0.006)

... Samples of rice paddy soil, tidal channel sediment, and water were collected from five different sites in SW Bangladesh in May and November of 2016 and chemically analyzed to characterize element mobilities and the geochemical factors controlling them. Soil and sediment samples were found to have compositions similar to each other and to average upper continental crust. Disequilibrium partitioning of elements between solids and water or deionized water extracts was observed, although apparent partition coefficients mostly show the expected order of element mobilities. Solid compositions do not change seasonally while surface water compositions do, and little spatial variation was observed.

... Study objective: To review the outcomes of non-opioid multimodal analgesia (NOMA) in patients after thoracic surgery. Design: Retrospective one-year cohort. Setting: Single hospital, level one trauma center. Patients. 29 ASA 2-4 patients after thoracotomy (8), open lung biopsy or video-assisted thoracic surgery (VATS) operated by a single surgeon. Interventions: NOMA protocol included intravenous acetaminophen alternating with ketorolac every 3 hours (each every 6 hours, later converted to oral acetaminophen and ibuprofen) with a low dose (0.05mg/kg/h) IV ketamine infusion up to chest tube removal. Opioids were not routinely prescribed from postoperative day one. Measurements: NOMA adherence versus breach (need for >2 opioid rescue doses/24h) rate and it’s association with the perioperative variables and length of stay was explored from the chart review. Main Results: The median (IQR) postoperative opioid requirement was 3 (0-6) doses per hospital stay. 7/29 patients (CI 10-44%) required >2 opioid rescue doses/24 h. Need for opioid rescue was associated with lower BMI and using hydromorphone as oppose to morphine in the recovery room. 3/29 patients were prescribed opioids on discharge. No patients required opioids on follow-up and 63% were pain-free. Median length of stay was 3 (2-5.25) days in NOMA compliant and 9 (6-11) days in opioid rescue groups (P=0.002). In subgroup analysis length of stay reduction was limited to non-thoracotomy patients.
