BACKGROUND S100P, a protein originally detected in the human placenta, has been found to play an important role in the development and invasion of tumors. Interestingly, we have recently discovered using data mining that S100P was considerably up-regulated during the window of implantation in the human endometrium, but little further information has been(More)
—In this paper, low-order integral–proportional (IP), modified IP (m-IP), and modified integral–proportional– derivative (m-IPD) controllers are designed for the speed control of a two-mass system based on a normalized model and polynomial method. In order to have sufficient damping, the parameters of the controllers are determined through(More)
—Wireless power transfer (WPT) has attracted an ever increasing interest from both industry and academics over the past few years. Its applications vary from small power devices such as mobile phones and tablets to high power electric vehicles, and from small transfer distance of centimeters to large distance of tens of centimeters. In order to achieve a(More)
Methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR) enzyme plays an important role in folate metabolism and MTHFR polymorphisms have been suggested to be associated with risk of various cancers. MTHFR C677T polymorphism is a common genetic alteration and may affect the host susceptibility to ovarian cancer. The aim of this study was to investigate the association(More)
MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are important regulators of many physiological and pathological processes, including cell proliferation, apoptosis, and cell cycle arrest. In this study, we aimed to investigate the biological role of miR-155 in cervical cancer and the underlying molecular mechanism involved in tumorigenesis. The expression of miR-155 in human cervical(More)
BACKGROUND Displaced femoral neck fractures (FNFs) in healthy elderly patients have traditionally been managed with hemiarthroplasty (HA) or total hip arthroplasty (THA), with studies suggesting that THA may be the better option. However, it has recently been reported that bipolar HA (BHA) also provides good outcomes, and it is not clear as to whether BHA(More)
—This paper discusses a utility function-based control of a battery-ultracapacitor hybrid energy system. The example system employs the battery semi-active topology. In order to represent different performance and requirements of the battery and ultracapacitor packs, the two packs are modeled as two independent but related agents using the NetLogo(More)
