This contribution considers the guaranteed cost control for a class of linear uncertain time-delay switched singular systems under arbitrary switching laws with a given quadratic performance index. Based on a Lyapunov function approach and a linear matrix inequality (LMI) technique, a sufficient condition on the existence of guaranteed cost state feedback(More)
Despite the large number of published papers analyzing the prognostic role of Ki-67 in NSCLC, it is still not considered an established factor for routine use in clinical practice. The present meta-analysis summarizes and analyses the associations between Ki-67 expression and clinical outcome in NSCLC patients. PubMed, Cochrane, and Embase databases were(More)
A stream cipher namely the HSC (hashing stream cipher) which uses a regular one-way hash function to generate pseudorandom keystream iteratively is proposed. Since the timestamp is used in the keystream generator, the algorithm achieves the robustness against the adaptive-chosen-plaintext attack. The oneway hash function is the core of the algorithm, so the(More)
BACKGROUND Precompetition nervous syndrome comprises an excessive nervous and anxiety response to the high-pressure environment preceding a sporting competition. The use of acupuncture as a treatment option for anxiety, and wrist-ankle acupuncture (WAA) specifically in this instance, has been identified as a growing trend within the Western world. In our(More)
Background. The therapeutic mechanisms of cerebral ischemia treatment by acupuncture are yet not well addressed. Objective. We investigated the effects of electroacupuncture (EA) at GV26 observing the expression of autophagy-related proteins Beclin-1 and LC3B and proportion of apoptotic cells and Bcl-2 positive cells in MCAO/R model rats. Methods.(More)
The aim of the present study was to investigate the association between the formation of hemangioma and the expression of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) following local injections of pure alcohol in patients exhibiting hemangioma. Ten healthy subjects (control group) and 10 hemangioma patients (treatment group) were included in the study(More)
