Worms can spread throughout the Internet very quickly and are a great security threat. Constant quarantine strategy is a defensive measure against worms, but its reliability in current imperfect intrusion detection systems is poor. A pulse quarantine strategy is thus proposed in the current study. The pulse quarantine strategy adopts a hybrid intrusion(More)
Internet worm attacks reduce network security and cause economic losses. The use of a quarantine strategy is prominent in defending against worms, and it has been applied to various worm propagation models. Although theoretical analysis suggests that worms must get eliminated under quarantine, such a result does not appear in a real network. The time delay(More)
We present an architecture and prototype implementation for a generic provenance database middleware (GProM) that is based on the concept of query rewrites, which are applied to an algebraic graph representation of database operations. The system supports a wide range of provenance types and representations for queries, updates, transactions, and operations(More)
BACKGROUND Neuron loss, glial activation and vascular degeneration are common sequelae of ischemia-reperfusion (I/R) injury in ocular diseases. The present study was conducted to explore the ability of curcumin to inhibit retinal I/R injury, and to investigate underlying mechanisms of the drug effects. METHODOLOGY/PRINCIPAL FINDINGS Different dosages of(More)
OBJECTIVE To reveal the familial prevalence and molecular variation of α- and β-globin gene mutations in Guangdong Province. METHODS A total of 40,808 blood samples from 14,332 families were obtained and analyzed for both hematological and molecular parameters. RESULTS A high prevalence of α- and β-globin gene mutations was found. Overall, 17.70% of(More)
Congenital insensitivity to pain with anhidrosis (CIPA) is a rare inherited disorder of the peripheral nervous system resulting from mutations in neurotrophic tyrosine kinase receptor 1 gene (NTRK1), which encodes the high-affinity nerve growth factor receptor TRKA. Here, we investigated the oral and craniofacial manifestations of a Chinese patient affected(More)
The mdx(Cv3) mouse is a model for Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD). DMD is an X-linked disorder with defective expression of the protein dystrophin, and which is associated with a reduced b-wave and has other electro- retinogram (ERG) abnormalities. To assess potential causes for the abnormalities, we recorded ERGs from pieces of isolated C57BL/6J and(More)
