    Mortality among methadone maintenance clients in China: A six-year cohort study
    with Z. Wu, L. Li, L. Pang, K. Rou, C. Wang, W. Luo, W. Yin, J. Li, and J. M. McGoogan
    Objective: To assess the overall mortality of methadone maintenance treatment clients in China and its associated factors. Methods: A total of 1,511 MMT clients, all of whom enrolled in China's first eight MMT clinics between March and December 2004, were included in this cohort study and followed for approximately six years, until June 2010. Mortality and its predictors were examined using Cox proportional hazards regression models. Results: A total of 154 deaths were observed within 5,391 pers…Read more

    © 2016 IOP Publishing Ltd and Sissa Medialab srl.The CUORE experiment will search for neutrinoless double-beta decay of 130Te with an array of 988 TeO2 bolometers arranged in 19 towers. CUORE-0, the first tower assembled according to the CUORE procedures, was built and commissioned at Laboratori Nazionali del Gran Sasso, and took data from March 2013 to March 2015. In this paper we describe the design, construction and operation of the CUORE-0 experiment, with an emphasis on the improvements mad…Read more

    The CUORE-0 experiment searched for neutrinoless double beta decay in130Te using an array of 52 tellurium dioxide crystals, operated as bolometers at a temperature of 10 mK. It took data in the Gran Sasso National Laboratory since March 2013 to March 2015. We present the results of a search for neutrinoless double beta decay in 9.8 kg-years130Te exposure that allowed us to set the most stringent limit to date on this half-life. The performance of the detector in terms of background and energy re…Read more
