Security remains a major roadblock to universal acceptance of the Web for many kinds of transactions, especially since the recent sharp increase in remotely exploitable vulnerabilities have been attributed to Web application bugs. Many verification tools are discovering previously unknown vulnerabilities in legacy C programs, raising hopes that the same(More)
As a large and complex application platform, the World Wide Web is capable of delivering a broad range of sophisticated applications. However, many Web applications go through rapid development phases with extremely short turnaround time, making it difficult to eliminate vulnerabilities. Here we analyze the design of Web application security assessment(More)
To study the etiologic factors of non-familial breast cancer, the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) and Southern hybridization were used to detect six viruses including human papillomavirus (HPV), cytomegalovirus (CMV), Epstein-Barr virus (EBV), herpes simplex virus (HSV)-1, HSV-2, and human herpesvirus (HHV)-8 DNA in 69 patients with breast cancer and 60(More)
BACKGROUND The association between oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC) and viral and chemical factors is uncertain. Therefore the correlation of viral and chemical factors with oral cancer in Taiwan was investigated. METHODS Thirty-seven paraffin-embedded oral cancer biopsies and 36 normal oral tissue specimens were examined by the polymerase chain(More)
Heat shock protein 70 (HSP70) is an important stress-induced protein. Areca quid chewing is a major risk factor of oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC). The aim of this study was to compare HSP70 expression in normal human oral epithelium and OSCC and further to explore the potential mechanisms that may lead to induce HSP70 expression. 41 OSCC and 10 normal(More)
In order to search for new thermophilic microorganisms and their enzymes, bacterial strains from black liquor of brownstock at washing stage of kraft pulping process were screened. Therein a multiple glycosyl hydrolase-producing strain, BL11, was isolated as a dominant species in the xylan-degrading bacterial population and identified as Paenibacillus(More)
Metallothioneins (MTs) are a family of low molecular weight, cysteine-rich, inducible, intracellular proteins that bind heavy metals with high affinity. MT-1 is known as a stress-inducible protein and functions as an antioxidant enzyme. Areca quid chewing is a major risk factor in the development and further progression of oral squamous cell carcinoma(More)
The correlation of viral factors with cervical cancer was investigated. 27 cervical cancer biopsies and 29 normal cervical scrapings were determined by polymerase chain reaction method for 6 viruses, including human papillomavirus (HPV), cytomegalovirus (CMV), Epstein-Barr virus (EBV), herpes simplex virus (HSV)-1, HSV-2, and human herpes virus (HHV)-8.(More)
Nuclear factor-kappa B (NF-kappaB) is considered to be important in many inflammatory and immune responses. The aim of this study was to compare NF-kappaB expression in normal human buccal mucosa and oral submucous fibrosis (OSF) specimens and further explore the potential mechanism that may lead to induction of NF-kappaB expression. Seventeen OSF and six(More)
