Tuberculosis (TB) treatment is hampered by the long duration of antibiotic therapy required to achieve cure. This indolent response has been partly attributed to the ability of subpopulations of less metabolically active Mycobacterium tuberculosis (Mtb) to withstand killing by current anti-TB drugs. We have used immune modulation with a phosphodiesterase-4(More)
Tuberculosis (TB) caused by Mycobacterium tuberculosis (Mtb) is one of the leading infectious disease causes of morbidity and mortality worldwide. Though current antibiotic regimens can cure the disease, treatment requires at least six months of drug therapy. One reason for the long duration of therapy is that the currently available TB drugs were selected(More)
Severe chronic neuropathic pain, which can profoundly and negatively affect quality of life, is usually caused by damage to peripheral nerve tissue from various physical, thermal, or chemical agents and is difficult to relieve. Commonly used opioids are quite effective in relieving nociceptive pain, but nerves that are damaged send pain-sensing fibers into(More)
This paper presents a method to apply progressive transmission to line drawings using the wavelet transform. Experiments have been conducted and showed that the wavelet transform, combined with a quantization step, performs progressive transmission using a data rate comparable to standard chain coding at the expense of almost no visually perceptible(More)
