With the constraints of network topologies and link capacities, achieving the optimal end-to-end throughput in data networks has been known as a fundamental but computationally hard problem. In this paper, we seek efficient solutions to the problem of achieving optimal throughput in data networks, with single or multiple unicast, multicast and broadcast(More)
OBJECTIVES/HYPOTHESIS To evaluate the outcome of cochlear implantation (CI) in patients with vestibular schwannoma (VS). STUDY DESIGN A retrospective case series from a tertiary auditory implant center. METHODS A retrospective case note review was carried out to evaluate patients with bilateral profound hearing loss and VS who underwent unilateral CI(More)
PURPOSE This study was to investigate the clinicopathologic significance and potential role of HOXB7 in the development and progression of colorectal cancer (CRC). EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN The relationship between HOXB7 expression and clinical characteristics of CRC was analyzed in 224 paraffin-embedded archived CRC specimens by immunohistochemistry (IHC). The(More)
Halophyte, like Salicornia europaea, could make full use of marginal saline land for carbon fixation. How the photosynthesis of S. europaea is regulated under high salinity implicates a significant aspect to exploit this pioneer plant in future. Measurement of photosynthesis parameters demonstrated the reduction of photosynthesis for the 0 and 800 mM NaCl(More)

PURPOSE To evaluate variants in the LRPAP1, CTSH, LEPREL1, ZNF644, SLC39A5, and SCO2 genes in 298 unrelated patients with early-onset high myopia (eoHM). METHODS Genomic DNA from 298 patients with eoHM was analyzed by whole exome sequencing. Variants in LRPAP1, CTSH, LEPREL1, ZNF644, SLC39A5, and SCO2 genes were selected and analyzed with bioinformatics.(More)
The basic idea of traditional density estimation is to model the overall point density analytically as the sum of influence functions of data points. However, traditional density estimation techniques only consider the location of a point. Supervised density estimation techniques, on the other hand, additionally consider a variable of interest that is(More)
Emphasis on hearing preservation has led to recognition of the round window membrane (RWM) as a portal for the cochlear implant electrode array. The St Thomas' Hospital (STH) classification was devised to evaluate the accessibility of RWM electrode insertion. The objectives of this study were: (1) to prospectively evaluate the STH classification in(More)
OBJECTIVE Hearing loss resulting from bilateral vestibular schwannomas (VSs) has a significant effect on the quality of life of patients with neurofibromatosis Type 2 (NF2). A national consensus protocol was produced in England as a guide for cochlear implantation (CI) and auditory brainstem implantation (ABI) in these patients. STUDY DESIGN Consensus(More)
OBJECTIVE Active middle ear implants augment hearing in patients with sensorineural, conductive, and mixed hearing losses with great success. However, the application of active middle ear implants has been restricted to compromised ears in adults only. Recently, active middle ear implants have been successfully implanted in patients younger than 18 years of(More)
