Recently, Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technique has been widely deployed in many applications, such as medical drugs management in hospitals and missing children searching in amusement parks. The applications basically can be classified into two types: non-public key cryptosystem (PKC)-based and PKC-based. However, many of them have been found to(More)
The aim of this study is to investigate the antihypertensive effects of red mold rice (RMR) and red mold dioscorea (RMD) by low-dose oral administration to spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHRs). A single oral dose of 1-fold RMD (150 mg/kg) significantly (p < 0.05) decreased systolic blood pressure (SBP) and diastolic blood pressure (DBP) after 8 h of(More)
The Monascus fermentation product red mold rice (RMR) has been found to contain the cholesterol-lowering agent monacolin K (MK) in both its lactone (MKL) and acid (MKA) forms and the mycotoxin citrinin (CT). The yellow pigments in RMR, namely, monascin (MS) and ankaflavin (AK), have been reported to exhibit antimetastatic and antiangiogenic activities.(More)
Monascus-fermented red mold dioscorea (RMD) has been proven to possess greater hypolipidemic effect than red mold rice (RMR) even though they include equal levels of cholesterol-lowering agent monacolin K. However, higher concentrations of yellow pigments (monascin and ankaflavin) were found in RMD than in RMR. In this study, purified monascin and(More)
Amyloid beta (Abeta) peptide is closely related to the onset of Alzheimer's disease (AD). A high-cholesterol or high-energy diet was demonstrated to stimulate Abeta formation and deposition in the amyloid precursor protein (APP) pathway and, oppositely, downregulate the secretion of the neuroprotective soluble APP alpha-fragment (sAPPalpha).(More)
Recently, many researchers have proposed RFID authentication protocols. These protocols are mainly consists of two types: symmetric key based and asymmetric key based. The symmetric key based systems usually have some weaknesses such as suffering brute force, de-synchronization, impersonation, and tracing attacks. In addition, the asymmetric key based(More)
BACKGROUND Monascus-fermented products have featured in Chinese cuisine for thousands of years and are widely used as food colourants and dietary materials in many Asian countries. Rice and dioscorea fermented with Monascus purpureus NTU 568 have health-promoting attributes in vitro and in vivo. The aim of this study was to investigate the immunomodulatory(More)
In this paper, we propose a new approach to identify a tag of a RFID system in constant time while keeping untraceability to the tag. Our scheme does not use any cryptographic primitives. Instead, we use a line in a plane to represent a tag. The points on the line, which are infinite and different each other, can be used as tag identification. We also(More)
