The Methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR) C677T polymorphism is associated with various diseases (vascular, cancers, neurology, diabetes, psoriasis, etc) with the epidemiology of the polymorphism of the C677T that varies dependent on the geography and ethnicity. The 5,10-Methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR) locus is mapped on chromosome 1 at(More)
In this study, three single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) located within the promoter of the human interleukin (IL)-10 gene [rs1800896 (position: -1087G>A), rs1800871 (position: -824C>T) and rs1800872 (position: -597C>A)] were investigated in 84 rheumatoid arthritis (RA) patients and 95 age- and sex-matched healthy subjects using polymerase chain(More)

The application of the Multi-stage Interconnection Networks (MINs) in Systems–on–Chip (SoC) and Application Specific Networks–on–Chip (NoC) is hottest since year 2002. Nevertheless, nobody used them practically for parallel communication. However, to overcome all the previous problems, a new method is proposed that uses MINs(More)
— In this paper, comparison of three Video compression techniques i.e. Discrete Cosine Transform (DCT), Discrete Wavelet Transform (DWT) and Hybrid is done. DCT is applied to Rows, Columns and Rows*Columns separately to frames in a video with compression factor of 2, 4 and 8, whereas Discrete Wavelet Transform(DWT) is applied till 2 nd level of DWT(More)
The goal of our IRB-approved study was to assess if a follow-up MRI every 6 months for 2 years is the most appropriate short-interval follow-up schedule. 203 breast MRI exams were performed from October 2009 to January 2014 as part of a BI-RADS 3 follow-up representing 2.6% of all breast MRIs (7,822) performed. We performed a retrospective longitudinal(More)
