Forkhead box P3 (FoxP3)-positive regulatory T cells (Tregs) play a pivotal role in the preservation of self-tolerance, and Treg dysfunction has been implicated in many autoimmune diseases. Whether and how Tregs participate in the pathogenesis of ankylosing spondylitis (AS) has not been fully elucidated. Here, we investigated Treg function and found that(More)
This paper proposes the interleaving gain in two different distributed turbo-coding schemes: Distributed Turbo Codes (DTC) and Distributed Multiple Turbo Codes (DMTC) for half-duplex relay system as an extension of our previous work on turbo coding interleaver design for direct communication channel. For these schemes with half-duplex constraint, the source(More)
—It is known that one of the essential building blocks of distributed turbo codes is the interleaver and its design uses random, semi-random (S-Random) and deterministic permutations. In this paper, a new modified matched S-random interleaver for turbo code is proposed. Then we extend the effect of this new interleaver to the relay channel to evaluate the(More)
