Production of proinflammatory cytokines contributes to cardiac dysfunction during ischemia-reperfusion. The principal mechanism responsible for the induction of this innate stress response during periods of myocardial ischemia-reperfusion remains unknown. Toll-like receptor 2 (TLR2) is a highly conserved pattern recognition receptor that has been implicated(More)
BACKGROUND Staphylococcus aureus sepsis is associated with significant myocardial dysfunction. Toll-like receptor 2 (TLR2) mediates the inflammatory response to S aureus and may trigger an innate immune response in the heart. We hypothesized that a TLR2 deficiency would attenuate S aureus-induced cardiac proinflammatory mediator production and the(More)
This paper proposes an effective technique to detect and locate alterations of the tampered frame, whether it is stored again into original bit-streams or not. A block-classification strategy is used to classify DCT-blocks into the flat-block and the normal-block. Simple features of the both blocks are embedded invisibly. The damaging problem of clipping(More)
This paper proposes an effective technique, which can detect malicious manipulations under video lossy compressing data (e.g. H.263) and still-image lossy compressing data (e.g. JPEG). A block-classification strategy is used to divide DCT-blocks into the flat-blocks and the normal-blocks. Simple features of the both blocks are embedded invisibly. For later(More)
Current guidelines recommend a period of moderate therapeutic hypothermia (TH) for comatose patients after cardiac arrest to improve clinical outcomes. However, in-vitro studies have reported platelet dysfunction, thrombocytopenia, and coagulopathy, results that might discourage clinicians from applying TH in clinical practice. We aimed to quantify the(More)
Predicting the prognosis for cardiac arrest is still challenging. Combining biomarkers from diverse pathophysiological pathways may provide reliable indicators for the severity of injury and predictors of long-term outcomes. We investigated the feasibility of using a multimarker strategy with key independent biomarkers to improve the prediction of outcomes(More)
In practice, it is difficult to gain profit in the process of trading interest rate derivative commodities. This could be attributed to the complexity of existing pricing models, which are derived from the term structure and yield curve, both of which cannot adapt well to short-term market dynamics. In this study, we use the Extended Classifier System (XCS)(More)
The data presented in this article are related to the research article entitled "Acute Hospital Administration of Amiodarone and/or Lidocaine in Shockable Patients Presenting with Out-of-hospital Cardiac Arrest: A Nationwide Cohort Study" (C.H. Huang, P.H. Yu, M.S. Tsai et al., 2016) [1]. The data contains the information of co-morbidities coding from ICD-9(More)
AIM Targeted temperature management (TTM) for in-hospital cardiac arrest (IHCA) is given different recommendation levels within international resuscitation guidelines. We aimed to identify whether TTM would be associated with favourable outcomes following IHCA and to determine which factors would influence the decision to implement TTM. METHODS We(More)
