Hough transform (HT) is a well-established method for curve detection and recognition due to its robustness and processing capability. Being the core principle, voting principle needs to find the max voting rate, which makes it impossible to detect many targets from single image synchronously. In this paper, an improved Hough transform algorithm which(More)
Lidocaine, a common local anesthetic drug, has anti-inflammatory effects. It has demonstrated a protective effect in mice from septic peritonitis. However, it is unknown whether lidocaine has effects on high mobility group box 1 (HMGB1), a key mediator of inflammation. In this study, we investigated the effect of lidocaine treatment on serum HMGB1 level and(More)
AIM To test whether carbachol can influence endothelial barrier dysfunction induced by tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-α and whether the alpha 7 nicotinic receptor can mediate this process. METHODS Rat cardiac microvascular endothelial cells were exposed to carbachol followed by TNF-α treatment in the presence or the absence of α-bungarotoxin (an antagonist(More)
Nylon 6 electrospun nanofibers mat was prepared via electrospinning for the removal of three estrogens, namely, diethylstilbestrol (DES), dienestrol (DS), and hexestrol (HEX) from aqueous solution. Static adsorption as well as the dynamic adsorption was evaluated by means of batch and dynamic disk flow mode, respectively. The kinetic study indicated that(More)
This paper reports a scale treatment on purified terephthalic acid (PTA) productive wastewater in a 50L column form reactor by ultrasound enhanced ozonation. The degradation effects of three kinds of productive wastewater including inlet and outlet water from treatment works as well as accident wastewater are investigated. The results show that the(More)
The performance of reference current computation method based on Fryze, Buchholz, Dpenbrock (FBD) algorithm is focused on. An adaptive low-pass filter (LPF) based on fuzzy logic is proposed, which is composed of two two-order Butterworth LPFs, and fuzzy logic is developed taking changing amplitude of load current and harmonic number of the lowest harmonic(More)
— This paper describes a new Hough transform (HT) algorithm for multi-objective detection. The core principle of HT—voting principle, which needs to find the maximal voting rate, makes HT impossible to detect many targets from single image synchronously. An improved HT algorithm based on clustering is presented. When the number of targets in the image is(More)
