PURPOSE The long pentraxin 3 (PTX3) is a key component of the humoral arm of the innate immune system. PTX3 is produced locally in response to proinflammatory stimuli. We reviewed the usefulness of systemic levels of PTX3 in critically ill patients with systemic inflammatory response syndrome (SIRS), sepsis, and bacteremia, focusing on its diagnostic and(More)
In code-division multiple-access (CDMA) systems, parallel interference cancellation (PIC) schemes are attractive to the practical implementation of multiuser detection due to the lower complexity. However, a wrong interference subtraction as a result of the lack of exact knowledge of the interference signal induces a quadruple increasing interference power(More)
As Electroencephalography (EEG) is a non-invasive brain imaging technique that records the electric field on the scalp instead of direct measuring activities of brain voxels on the cortex, many approaches were proposed to estimate the activated sources due to its significance in neuroscience research and clinical applications. However, since most part of(More)
Most direct techniques for solving low-thrust optimization problems involve control variables parametrization at some points in the optimization process. Some instances, however, does not possess the necessary information that determine the ranges of the parameters. Even the ranges are known, huge magnitudes of the ranges often result in convergence to(More)
-In this paper, we propose a blind watermarking algorithm for digital image based on DCT and SVD. The algorithm can satisfy the transparence and robustness of the watermarking system very well. The experiment based on this algorithm demonstrates that the watermarking is robust to the common signal processing techniques including JEPG compressing noise, low(More)
