With wide application of virtualization technology, tenants are able to access isolated cloud services by renting the shared resources in datacenters. Unlike resources such as CPU and memory, datacenter network, which relies on traditional transport-layer protocols, suffers unfairness due to a lack of VM-level network isolation. In this paper, we propose(More)
Consumer cloud storage (CCS) services have become popular among users for storing and synchronizing files via apps installed on their devices. A single CCS, however, has intrinsic limitations on networking performance, service reliability, and data security. To overcome these limitations, we present UniDrive, a CCS app that synergizes multiple CCSs(More)
OBJECTIVE To analyze the clinical characteristics, treatment modalities, and outcomes of adult prostate sarcoma treated at our institution. MATERIALS AND METHODS The medical records of 25 adult patients with prostate sarcoma were obtained from January 1989 to December 2009. The clinicopathologic parameters were evaluated to determine their effect on(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE Inflammation is deemed to play critical roles in tumor progression and metastasis, and an increased neutrophil-lymphocyte ratio (NLR) has been reported to correlate with poor survivals in various malignancies. However, association between NLR elevation and survival outcome in patients with colorectal liver metastasis (CRLM) remains(More)
BACKGROUND Inflammation was considered to perform crucial roles in the development and metastasis of malignancies. A heightened neutrophil-lymphocyte ratio has been described to be associated with detrimental survivals in different malignancies. Debate remains over the impact of heightened neutrophil-lymphocyte ratio on survivals in biliary tract cancer.(More)
In recent years, Dropbox, Google, and Microsoft have been competing in the market of consumer cloud storage (CCS) services. While once the key comparative metric, storage capacity per user has outgrown the needs of most users. Today, third-party applications based on CCS’s RESTful Web APIs are becoming a primary way for users to utilize their expanded(More)
Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is the fifth most common malignancy and the second leading cause of cancer-related mortality worldwide. In this review, we made a review on current guidelines published from January 2001 to June 2017 worldwide with a focus on the clinical management of HCC. The electronic databases MEDLINE, the Chinese SinoMed, and the(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE Surgery carries the best hope for cure in the treatment of cholangiocarcinoma (CC), whereas surgical outcome is not fully satisfactory. Bio-molecular markers have been used to improve tumor staging and prognosis prediction. Mucin antigen MUC4 (MUC4) has been implicated as a marker for poor survival in various tumors. However,(More)
BACKGROUND Surgical resection is shown to present the best chance of cure in the treatment of intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma (ICC). However, the appropriate length of the negative margin remains unclear. The aim of the present meta-analysis was to investigate whether a clear margin of 10 mm or more (≥10 mm) conferred any survival benefit over a margin of(More)
Intra-abdominal infection (IAI) after hepatectomy is an important morbidity. Identification of risk factors that could be avoided in the perioperative period may reduce the prevalence of IAI after hepatectomy for hepatocelluar carcinoma (HCC).Between January 1995 and December 2009, all patients with HCC who underwent curative liver resection were evaluated(More)
