Coordinated Multiple Point (CoMP) transmission is considered as one of candidate technologies for LTE-Advanced. CoMP improves average cell-edge user throughput as well as cell throughput and ensures the fairness of all uses. There are two categories in CoMP, Joint Processing (JP) and Coordinated Scheduling/Beam forming(CS/CB). In this paper, a novel(More)
BACKGROUND Fingolimod has shown reductions in clinical and MRI disease activity in patients with relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis. We further assessed the efficacy and safety of fingolimod in such patients. METHODS We did this placebo-controlled, double-blind phase 3 study predominantly in the USA (101 of 117 centres). Using a computer-generated(More)
Studies have shown that alcohol could impair automatic pre-attentive change detection. However, several earlier studies which investigated alcohol-induced effects on single auditory feature independently were different from each other on the results. Meanwhile, only few auditory features have been investigated yet. Therefore, it is meaningful to investigate(More)
BACKGROUND Following amputation, urodele salamander limbs reprogram somatic cells to form a blastema that self-organizes into the missing limb parts to restore the structure and function of the limb. To help understand the molecular basis of blastema formation, we used quantitative label-free liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry/mass spectrometry(More)
BACKGROUND No treatments have been approved for primary progressive multiple sclerosis. Fingolimod, an oral sphingosine 1-phosphate receptor modulator, is effective in relapse-onset multiple sclerosis, but has not been assessed in primary progressive multiple sclerosis. We assessed the safety and efficacy of fingolimod in patients with primary progressive(More)
In this paper, a new method of timing synchronization was proposed for 802.16e OFDMA downlink which consists of coarse frame detection and fine timing synchronization. In coarse frame detection a method had been proposed, which reduced the uncertainty existing in conventional method. For fine timing synchronization, another method was represented to improve(More)
The traditional proportional fair scheduling algorithm can only provide users with limited fairness while the channel is changing. To solve this problem and enhance the fairness between users, an adaptive proportional fair scheduling algorithm for LTE (Long term Evolution) system is proposed. It adjusts the scheduling priority according to individual user's(More)
Coordinated multiple point transmission/reception (CoMP) is considered as an effective approach for inter-cell interference coordination (ICIC) in LTE-A, which can improve cell-edge and average cell throughputs. In this paper, a novel downlink coordination scheme consisting of two steps was proposed for CoMP single-user multi-input multi-output (CoMP(More)
Perceived social support emphasizes subjective feeling of provisions offered by family, friends and significant others. In consideration of the great significance of perceived social support to health outcomes, attempt to reveal the neural substrates of perceived social support will facilitate its application in a series of mental disorders. Perceived(More)
Metamorphosis in the South African clawed frog, Xenopus laevis, results in significant changes in the immune system. It is characterized by a striking involution of the thymus and spleen followed by lymphocyte expansion in the postmetamorphic period. While thyroid hormones are generally thought to be the most important mediators of morphological changes(More)
