With the maturity of network technology, the deterministic factor of a 'successful' web site does not as much depend on its connectivity to the Internet, rather the content of web pages plays a more important role. The inclusion of dynamic data, for example, has become an increasingly desirable feature of a web page. Web servers that support dynamic web(More)
DNA vaccination has emerged as an attractive immunotherapeutic approach against cancer due to its simplicity, stability, and safety. Results from numerous clinical trials have demonstrated that DNA vaccines are well tolerated by patients and do not trigger major adverse effects. DNA vaccines are also very cost effective and can be administered repeatedly(More)
To test, whether 10 genes, diagnostic of renal allograft rejection in blood, are able to diagnose and predict cardiac allograft rejection, we analyzed 250 blood samples from heart transplant recipients with and without acute rejection (AR) and with cytomegalovirus (CMV) infection by QPCR. A QPCR-based logistic regression model was built on 5 of these 10(More)
Character sums make their appearance in many number theory problems: showing that there are infinitely many primes in any coprime arithmetic progression, estimating the least quadratic non-residue, bounding the least primitive root, finding the size of the least inert prime in a real quadratic field, etc. In this thesis, we find numerically explicit(More)
Cervical cancer is the fourth most lethal women's cancer worldwide. Current treatments against cervical cancer include surgery, radiotherapy, chemotherapy, and anti-angiogenic agents. However, despite the various treatments utilized for the treatment of cervical cancer, its disease burden remains a global issue. Persistent infection of human papillomavirus(More)
In this poster, we present our experience developing JAVA applets and applications to create a client/server system on the world wide web, and show how the product is used in upper-division computer science classes.The set of programs consist of a client and a server. The client program in the prototype is a JAVA applet that is downloaded into the client(More)
Human Papillomavirus is responsible for over 99 % of cervical cancers and is associated with cancers of the head and neck. The currently available prophylactic vaccines against HPV do not generate therapeutic effects against established HPV infections and associated lesions and disease. Thus, the need for a therapeutic vaccine capable of treating(More)
Human papillomavirus (HPV) has been identified as the primary etiologic factor of cervical cancer as well as subsets of anogenital and oropharyngeal cancers. The two HPV viral oncoproteins, E6 and E7, are uniquely and consistently expressed in all HPV infected cells and are therefore promising targets for therapeutic vaccination. Both recombinant naked DNA(More)
In this paper, an overview of novel design and integration approaches for improved performance UHF Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) tags and readers is presented. Ultra-low-cost organic substrates, such as paper, with inkjet-printing capability are investigated for the UHF frequency band. The proposed technology could potentially revolutionize sensor(More)
