This paper proposes the Networked Game Mobility Model (NGMM), for synthesising mobility in First-Person-Shooter (FPS) networked games. Current networked game research focuses on modelling low-level aspects, such as packet inter-arrival times and packet sizes, to optimise network traffic and efficient use of gaming servers. Due to the increasing popularity(More)
BACKGROUND Genetic variants of the two adjacent genes, IL13 and IL4 have frequently been reported as being associated with susceptibility to atopy and asthma, both in adults and children, and some studies also suggest association with lung function and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. METHODS In this study, we examined for the first time the effect(More)
The membrane mucin MUC1 is aberrantly expressed in a variety of cancers, and in stomach, it is a ligand for Helicobacter pylori where it plays a role in gastric carcinogenesis. Splicing variation, leading to a 9-amino acid insertion in the signal peptide region, was proposed to be because of a single-nucleotide polymorphism (rs4072037) at the 5′ end of exon(More)
Alterations in epithelial mucin expression are associated with carcinogenesis, but there are few data in biliary tract cancer (BTC). In pancreatic malignancy, MUC4 is a diagnostic and prognostic tumour marker, whereas MUC5AC has been proposed as a sensitive serological marker for BTC. We assessed MUC4 and MUC5AC expression in (i) prospectively collected(More)

Eight bismuth(III) complexes derived from the simple α-hydroxycarboxylic acids; gluconic (H6-glu), tartaric (H4-tar), mandelic (H2-man), malic (H3-mal) and glycolic (H2-gly) have been synthesised and characterised. The complexes are formed through direct treatment of the organic acids with Bi(NO3)3·5H2O ([Bi(H2-tar)(H3-tar)] 2, [Bi(mal)(NO3)(H2O)2] 6,(More)
