Many studies have been conducted on supporting communication in home and office spaces, but relatively few studies have explored supporting communication in large-scale public spaces, despite the importance of such environments in our daily lives. We propose a transcendent means of communication as an emerging style in this pervasive computing era: a system(More)
Although breast cancer is one of the most common malignancies, the molecular mechanisms underlying its development and progression are not fully understood. To identify key molecules involved, we screened publicly available microarray datasets for genes differentially expressed between breast cancers and normal mammary glands. We found that three of the(More)
Test data modification based on test relaxation and X-filling is the preferable approach for reducing excessive IR-drop in at-speed scan testing to avoid test-induced yield loss. However, none of the existing test relaxation methods can control the distribution of identified don't care bits (X-bits), thus adversely affecting the effectiveness of IR-drop(More)
Reducing IR-drop in the test cycle during at-speed scan testing has become mandatory for avoiding test-induced yield loss. An efficient approach for this purpose is post-ATPG test modification based on <i>X</i>-identification and <i>X</i>-filling since it causes no circuit/clock design change and no test vector count inflation. However, applying this(More)

Malignant gliomas are the most common neoplasm in the central nervous system. When treated with conventional treatments including surgery, irradiation, and chemotherapy, the average life expectancy of the most malignant type, glioblastoma multiforme is usually less than 1 year. Therefore, gene therapy is expected to be an effective and possibly curative(More)
Purpose. To assess changes in lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) within 1 year after brachytherapy in patients receiving alpha 1-adrenoceptor antagonists. Methods. We retrospectively evaluated 116 patients who underwent (125)I prostate brachytherapy in our institute. Seventy-one patients were treated with a combination of external beam radiation therapy(More)
AIMS The existence of Angiotensin-II (Ang-II) receptors in the bladder wall and the pronounced contractile effect of Ang-II on the human detrusor muscle have been well established. Studies have presented the role of Ang-II as a mediator in smooth muscle growth and collagen production in the bladder with outlet obstruction. We investigated the associations(More)
