BACKGROUND Although National Cholesterol Education Program (NCEP), International Diabetes Federation (IDF), American Heart Association and National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute (AHA/NHLBI), World Health Organization (WHO), and the European Group for the Study of Insulin Resistance (EGIR) definitions of metabolic syndrome (MetS) have been commonly used by(More)
BACKGROUND High-sensitivity C-reactive protein (hs-CRP) is an easily measured inflammatory biomarker. This study compared the association of percent body fat mass (%FM), body mass index (BMI), waist circumference (WC), and waist-to-hip ratio (WHR) with hs-CRP in a Taiwanese population. METHODS A total of 1669 subjects aged 40-88 years were recruited in(More)
BACKGROUND The prevalence of type 2 diabetes has rapidly increased in the Taiwanese population with the increasing prevalence of a sedentary lifestyle and high-calorie dietary intake.

The aim of this study was to evaluate the interacted association between EDNRA and EDN1 polymorphisms and gender, regular exercise, and obesity status on carotid intima media thickness (IMT) in community- dwelling subjects of the Taichung Community Health Study. Five single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs rs1395821, rs1878406, rs5333, rs1800541, and rs5370)(More)
In this paper a 1-GS/s 6-bit flash type analog-to-digital converter (ADC) is designed in 0.18-mum one-poly six-metal CMOS. An offset calibrating method is used to improve the performance of ADC. To reduce the input capacitance of the ADC and the amount of calibration circuit, the active interpolation technique is applied. Measured results show the ADC(More)
a r t i c l e i n f o Over the last decade, educators, administrators, and policy makers increasingly focus on corporate social responsibility.
