Circuit diagrams and Unified Modeling Language diagrams are just two examples of standard visual languages that help accelerate work by promoting regularity, removing ambiguity and enabling software tool support for communication of complex information. Ironically, despite having one of the highest ratios of graphical to textual information, biology still(More)

Sixty-five (77%) tumors were HPV DNA-positive, and most were infected with type 16 or type 18 or both.(More)
Rats were exposed to white smoke generated from mixtures of titanium dioxide-hexachloroethane (TiO2-HC) and zinc-hexachloroethane (Zn-HC), respectively, in an inhalation chamber operated in the static mode. The dose was varied by varying the amount of smoke mixture and/or the exposure time. The acute inhalation toxicity of TiO2-HC smoke was much lower than(More)
Perineural invasion, the growth of tumor cells along nerves, is a key feature of pancreatic cancer. The cardinal symptom of pancreatic cancer, abdominal pain often radiating to the back, as well as the high frequency of local tumor recurrence following resection are both attributed to the unique ability of pancreatic tumor cells to invade the neuronal(More)
