To compare matched paliperidone-ER- and olanzapine-treated schizophrenic patients on measures of glucose and lipid metabolism. Eighty hospitalized patients with schizophrenia (DSM-IV) were randomly assigned to treatment with paliperidone ER or olanzapine for a period of 12 weeks. At baseline and every 4 weeks, we assessed weight, subcutaneous fat, waist and(More)
The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of image superimposition from surrounding alveolar bone and intraradicular contrast medium on radiographic interpretation of a C-shaped canal system in mandibular second molars. Thirty mandibular second molars with fused roots were collected and stored in 10% formalin solution. After being scanned by(More)
—In shingled magnetic recording (SMR), the multi-head multitrack (MHMT) detector can better combat the effect of intertrack interference (ITI) than the single-head single-track (SHST) detector. Such a detector, however, has prohibitive implementation complexity. In this paper we propose to use the reduced-state sequence estimation (RSSE) algorithm to(More)
—Multitrack detection for shingled magnetic recording (SMR) using a two-head array system is considered. The channel suffers from intersymbol interference (ISI) in the down-track direction and intertrack interference (ITI) in the crosstrack direction. We propose a practical multihead/multitrack detector that provides a low-complexity approach to adaptive(More)
Although patients with coronary artery disease (CAD) have a high mortality rate, the pathogenesis of CAD is still poorly understood. The purpose of this study was to explore the underlying molecular mechanisms and potential target molecules for CAD. The platelet miRNA (GSE28858) and blood mRNA (GSE42148) expression profiles of patients with CAD and healthy(More)
Mesoporous calcium-silicate nanoparticles (MCSNs) are advanced biomaterials for controlled drug delivery and mineralization induction. Nanosilver-incorporated MCSNs (Ag-MCSNs) were prepared in the present study using both the adsorption and template methods. Both versions of Ag-MCSNs showed characteristic morphology of mesoporous materials and exhibited(More)
Chronic HBV infection is the leading cause of liver cirrhosis and hepatic cancer, but the individual responses toward HBV infection are highly variable, ranging from asymptomatic to chronic active hepatitis B inflammation. In this study, we hypothesized that the different individual responses to HBV infection was associated with differences in HBV-specific(More)
