OBJECTIVE To evaluate the adhesion of acute myeloid leukemia (AML) blasts to human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVECs) and the roles of intercellular adhesion molecule-1 (ICAM-1) and its ligand lymphocyte function associated antigen-1 (LFA-1) in binding of leukemic blasts to HUVECs. METHODS AML blasts attachment to unactivated or tumor necrosis(More)
Samples of nano-MgO with varying particle sizes were prepared by four different methods using Mg(NO3)2.6H2O, Na2CO3, urea and ammonia as raw materials and characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD), transmission electron microscopy (TEM), low temperature N2 adsorption-desorption measurements and FT-IR spectroscopy. Bactericidal experiments with Bacillus(More)
The modeling of joint probability distributions of correlated variables and the evaluation of reliability under incomplete probability information remain a challenge that has not been studied extensively. This article aims to investigate the effect of copulas for modeling dependence structures between variables on reliability under incomplete probability(More)
After being impregnated in the solution containing Mg(NO3)2 x 6H2O, gamma-Al2O3 was dried and calcined at 500 degrees C which results in the production of a bactericide, highly dispersed MgO loaded on the surface of gamma-Al2O3. The threshold value of the monolayer dispersion of MgO on gamma-Al2O3 is 14.97%, and MgO crystal formed when the load amount(More)
ZnO-Al(2)O(3) composites with different Zn/Al molar ratios (R) have been prepared using zinc-aluminium layered double hydroxides (LDHs) Zn( R )Al-CO(3) as precursor. The samples were characterized by XRD, ICP, EDX, EPR and FT-IR. The results show that ZnO is highly dispersed in all of the ZnO-Al(2)O(3) composites. Bactericidal experiments against(More)
This paper aims to propose a bootstrap method for characterizing the uncertainty in proba-bilistic models and its effect on geotechnical reliability. First, the copula theory is briefly introduced. Second, both the uncertainties in parameters and type of the best-fit marginal distributions and copulas are characterized by the bootstrap method. Finally, four(More)
This paper aims to propose a bootstrap method for characterizing the effect of uncertainty in shear strength parameters on slope reliability. The procedure for a traditional slope reliability analysis with fixed distributions of shear strength parameters is presented first. Then, the variations of the mean and standard deviation of shear strength parameters(More)
