Provided are pixel circuits using organic light emitting diodes (OLEDs) and a driving method thereof, and an organic light emitting display including the pixel circuits. The OLED is driven to emit light by a drive transistor generating a drive current compensated with respect to a threshold voltage difference and mobility deviation. The drive transistor may receive reference voltage and data signals in response to separate scan signals supplied to the pixel circuits via different scan lines. As a result, a threshold voltage compensation time, which may include the time during which a reference voltage is supplied to the drive transistor in response to a particular scan signal, may be set long enough regardless of a time during which the data signal is supplied to the pixel circuits located in respective rows of the organic light emitting display in response to a separate scan signal.

Hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection has been a major global cause of morbidity and mortality. The recognition of the problem led to a worldwide effort to reduce transmission of HBV through routine infant vaccination. HBV infection is the most common cause of chronic liver diseases and hepatocellular carcinoma in Korea. After hepatitis B vaccine era, seroprevalence of hepatits B surface antigen is decreasing, particularly in children. Hepatitis B vaccine is remarkably safe and shows high immunogenicity. Universal childhood immunization with three doses of hepatitis B vaccine in the first year of life is a highly effective method for prevention and control of hepatitis B.

A textile electrode kit mounted to the clothing includes a contact-type electrode or a non-contact electrode, and the textile electrode kit may be mounted to a clothing having a lower fixed member configured to reduce a motion artifact and a partially three-dimensional clothing structure by means of sewing. On occasions, the textile electrode kit having a non-contact electrode may be inserted into and used in an electrode-mounting pocket or an electrode-mounting tunnel formed at the clothing. The textile electrode kit of the present disclosure may detect various kinds of bio signals such as a heart activity signal, an electrocardiogram (ECG) signal, an electromyogram signal, a breathing signal or the like.

The present invention relates to a system for fundamentally eliminating skin damage caused by direct radiation of a laser beam on the skin of a user and inducing a somatic sensation on the skin within a safety standard by radiating a pulse laser beam on a medium attached to the skin of the user on which the somatic sensation is desired to be induced. Particularly, the present invention relates to a somatic sensation induction system which can induce a somatic sensation of various feelings delivered to a user by adjusting an absorption coefficient of a medium contacting with the skin of a user, energy intensity and a repetition rate of a radiated laser beam and the like.

The present disclosure relates to a MoS_(2) thin film and a method for manufacturing the same. The present disclosure provides a MoS_(2) thin film and a method for manufacturing the same using an atomic layer deposition method. In particular, the MoS_(2) thin film is manufactured by an atomic layer deposition method without using a toxic gas such as H_(2)S as a sulfur precursor. Thus, the present disclosure is eco-friendly. Furthermore, it is possible to prevent the damage and contamination of manufacturing equipment during the manufacturing process. In addition, it is possible to manufacture the MoS_(2) thin film by precisely controlling the thickness of the MoS_(2) thin film to the level of an atomic layer.

The present invention relates to a composition for preventing or treating sepsis or septic shock including a Mycobacterium tuberculosis-derived adenosine kinase (ADK) protein as an active ingredient. The Mycobacterium tuberculosis-derived ADK protein according to one exemplary embodiment of the present invention has an effect of inhibit binding between the LPS and cells by binding to LPS, and also has an excellent therapeutic effect against sepsis by enhancing viability in a sepsis animal model and suppressing inflammatory response in the lung and cell death in the spleen.
