Statistical models of shape and appearance have been successfully used in face modeling, tracking and synthesis. In this paper we describe experiments using appearance models for face verification. We compare a variety of different algorithms on a standard face database (XM2VTS). We demonstrate that simple methods of correction for head pose and face(More)
The present study we investigated the hepatoprotective effects of Olea europaea fruit pulp extract against carbon tetrachloride-induced hepatic damage in experimental mice. Further we explored the antioxidant potential of the extract to substantiate the hepatoprotective properties. Biochemical parameters were analyzed in the serum of experimental mice using(More)
Houttuynia cordata Thunb (Saururaceae) is a traditional medicinal herb used to treat several disease symptoms. The present study was focused on the hepatoprotective effects of H. cordata ethyl acetate extract in experimental mice. Further the antioxidant potential of the extract was also evaluated to substantiate its hepatoprotective properties. Carbon(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate the prevalence of fluoroquinolone resistance and mechanisms of selected fluoroquinolone resistance in Shigella flexneri isolates. A total of 624 S. flexneri strains isolated between 2001 and 2011 in Jiangsu Province of China were analysed for their fluoroquinolone susceptibility. The quinolone resistance-determining(More)
A new class of magnesium alloys has been developed by dissolving large amounts of oxygen atoms into a magnesium lattice (Mg-O alloys). The oxygen atoms are supplied by decomposing titanium dioxide nanoparticles in a magnesium melt at 720 °C; the titanium is then completely separated out from the magnesium melt after solidification. The dissolved oxygen(More)
Objective: To provide the epidemiology, resistance pattern, and characterization of integrons in Shigella flexneri isolated between 2001 and 2011 in Jiangsu Province. Method: A total of 624 strains of S. flexneri were collected from both outpatients and inpatients in hospitals in Jiangsu Province from January 2001 to December 2011. The Kirby–Bauer disk(More)
The effects of exogenous salicylic acid (SA), sodium nitropusside (SNP, a nitric oxide donor), or their combination on dwarf polish wheat (Triticum polonicum L.) seedlings under UV-B stress were studied. UV-B stress significantly decreased plant height, shoot dry mass, pigment content, net photosynthetic rate, intercellular CO2 concentration, stomatal(More)
