In this paper, a fusion of facial symmetry information method is developed for improving two-dimensional principal component analysis. The proposed method uses the characteristic of facial symmetry to generate odd-even symmetry images, by weighting odd-even symmetry matrix to replace original image matrix extracting features, and at last minimum distance(More)
Dysregulation of the complement system has been linked to pathogenesis of hypertension. However, whether genetic changes of complement factor H (CFH) and its related genes are associated with hypertension is unknown. We genotyped three SNPs in the CFH gene cluster that are closely linked to age-related macular degeneration, namely rs1061170 (Y402H),(More)
OBJECTIVE During diabetes mellitus, coronary lipoprotein lipase increases to promote the predominant use of fatty acids. We have reported that high glucose stimulates active heparanase secretion from endothelial cells to cleave cardiomyocyte heparan sulfate and release bound lipoprotein lipase for transfer to the vascular lumen. In the current study, we(More)
In the image inpainting process, the data term of the Criminisi algorithm depends on the shape of the manually selected target region and the confidence drops to zero rapidly, resulting in in painting sequence deviation which finally influence the in paint effect. Then we introduce the entropy to improve the data term, in this way another priority function(More)
A weighted kernel maximum scatter difference discriminate criterion is developed for extraction of nonlinear feature. The proposed method not only extracts nonlinear feature for faces effectively, but also reconstructs between-class and within-class scatter matrix by weighted schemes. So it can modify the kernel maximum scatter difference discriminate(More)
In previous studies, heterocyclic amines (HCAs) have been identified as carcinogenic and a risk factor for human cancer. Therefore, the present study was designed to identify bioactive natural products capable of controlling the formation of HCAs during cooking. For this purpose we have evaluated the effect of Rosa rugosa tea extract (RTE) on the formation(More)
OBJECTIVES This study aimed to evaluate the safety and efficacy of a new nickel-titanium shape memory alloy compression anastomosis ring, NiTi CAR 27, in constructing an anastomosis for colorectal cancer resection compared with conventional staples. METHODS In total, 234 consecutive patients diagnosed with colorectal cancer receiving sigmoidectomy and(More)
