Power consumption has become one of the biggest challenges in high-performance microprocessor design. The rapid increase in the complexity and speed of each new CPU generation is outstripping the benefits of voltage reduction and feature size scaling. Designers are thus continuously challenged to come up with innovative ways to reduce power, while trying to(More)
This paper presents a new approach for estimatingpower dissipation in a high performance microprocessor chip.First, characteristic profile (including parameters such as thecache miss rate, branch prediction miss rate, pipeline stalls,instruction mix, memory references, etc.) is extracted fromapplication programs. Then, mixed integer linear programmingand(More)
Factor H (fH) is an endogenous negative regulator of the alternative pathway (AP) that binds polyanions as well as complement activation fragments C3b and C3d. The AP is both necessary and sufficient to develop collagen Ab-induced arthritis (CAIA) in mice; the mechanisms whereby normal control of the AP is overcome and injury develops are unknown. Although(More)
— ZigBee is a cheap, secure and wireless mesh networking technology of the next generation. It will connect all kinds of wireless devices at home, office and the business place also. ZigBee is targeted at radio-frequency (RF) applications that require a low data rate, long battery life, and secure networking. This technology is intended to be simpler and(More)
Caring for patients with cirrhosis requires special consideration. The role of the hepatologist is to assist the primary care physician in caring for such patients. This involves an active role in immunizations, lifestyle modifications, and providing instructions on when to go to the emergency room (ER). There are also specific recommendations geared toward(More)
SOX10 is a Sry-related high mobility (HMG)-box transcriptional regulator that promotes differentiation of neural crest precursors into Schwann cells, oligodendrocytes, and melanocytes. Myelin, formed by Schwann cells in the peripheral nervous system, is essential for propagation of nerve impulses. SWI/SNF complexes are ATP dependent chromatin remodeling(More)
Nimesulide, a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug, was incorporated into multilamellar liposomes to improve its performance on topical administration. The drug was loaded onto liposomes employing thin film hydration technique. Various process and formulation variables were investigated to obtain the liposomal products of desired quality. Liposomes were(More)
BACKGROUND Fatty liver is associated with obesity, diabetes, hyperlipidemia, and the metabolic syndrome. The pathophysiology of fatty pancreas is poorly understood, but it may be closely related to fatty liver. OBJECTIVE The aim of our study was to determine the prevalence of fatty pancreas and risk factors associated with its development. DESIGN(More)
The complement system is proposed to play an important role in the pathogenesis of rheumatoid arthritis (RA). The complement system mannan-binding lectin-associated serine proteases (MASP)-1/3 cleave pro-factor D (proDf; inactive) into Df (active), but it is unknown where this cleavage occurs and whether inhibition of MASP-1/3 is a relevant therapeutic(More)
The human eye is subjected constantly to oxidative stress due to daily exposure to sunlight, high metabolic activities, and oxygen tension. Reactive oxygen species generated from environmental insults and pathological conditions render the human eye particularly vulnerable to oxidative damage. The ocular surface composed of the tear film, the cornea, and(More)
