Dendritic cells (DC) are believed to contribute to development of autoimmune sialadenitis, but little is known about their distribution in normal salivary glands. In this study, DC were identified and their distribution was determined in normal human parotid and submandibular glands. For light microscopy, salivary gland sections were stained with H&E or(More)
Real-life data on interferon (IFN)-free direct acting antiviral (DAA) therapies for chronic hepatitis C (CHC) is limited for Asian Americans.To evaluate sustained virologic response (SVR) and adverse events (AE) in Asian Americans treated with sofosbuvir (SOF)-based, IFN-free DAA therapies.This is a retrospective study of 110 consecutive Asian Americans(More)
BACKGROUND Although sex differences in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) risk are well known, it is unclear whether sex differences also exist in clinical presentation and survival outcomes once HCC develops. METHODS We performed a retrospective cohort study of 1886 HCC patients seen in a US medical centre in 1998-2015. Data were obtained by chart review(More)
For chronic hepatitis B (CHB), alanine aminotransferase (ALT) ≥2 × upper limit of normal (ULN) is often used as a major criteria to initiate treatment in absence of cirrhosis, though patients with lower ALT may not be free from future risk of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). We aimed to examine the effect of antiviral therapy on HCC incidence based on ALT(More)
High Performance Computing (HPC) is playing an important role in a variety of domains with the demand of high-level computational capacity. Besides, HPC provides services for a huge range of different users as well as multiple environments. Hence, the performance of the network is also one of the important criteria. The advent of InfiniBand (IB) aims at the(More)
Our goal was to examine rates and predictors for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) surveillance adherence and persistency, since studies of such adherence and persistency in patients with chronic hepatitis (CHB) are currently limited.Consecutive CHB patients (N = 1329) monitored for ≥1 year at 4 US clinics from January 1996 to July 2013 were retrospectively(More)
BACKGROUND According to Globocan, Mongolia has the highest worldwide hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) incidence (78.1/100 000, 3.5× higher than China). AIMS AND METHODS We conducted an anonymous survey of physicians from major provinces who attended an educational liver symposium, analysing their demography, practice, knowledge, perceptions and proposed(More)
Software-defined networking (SDN) has recently generated considerable interest among researchers as a next generation network architecture that can overcome the limitations of the traditional network. Intrusion detection and prevention system (IDPS) can leverage the SDN approach to achieve lots of great benefits. The specialized hardware or software for(More)
In this paper, in order to solve an elliptic partial differential equation with a nonlin-ear boundary condition for multiple solutions, the authors combine a minimax approach with a boundary integral-boundary element method, and identify a subspace and its special expression so that all numerical computation and analysis can be carried out more efficiently(More)
