AIM The objective of this case-control study was to compare the inflammatory response of peripheral blood from localized aggressive periodontitis (LAP) patients when stimulated with healthy or diseased plaque samples. MATERIALS AND METHODS Whole blood and subgingival plaque samples were collected from 13 LAP subjects, 14 siblings of LAP subjects and six(More)
Acoustic tracking with propagation delay is a challenging problem due to the following reasons: 1) It is difficult to perform an accurate state prediction, as the time interval between the current state and the previous state is varying and unknown due to the propagation delay; 2) The target time (signal emission time) needs to be estimated in addition to(More)
BACKGROUND Matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) are a family of host-derived proteinases reported to mediate multiple functions associated with periodontal breakdown and inflammation. High MMP levels in African-American children with localized aggressive periodontitis (LAgP) have been reported previously by the present authors. However, little is known about(More)
OBJECTIVE The objective of this study was to determine whether the detection of Aggregatibacter actinomycetemcomitans (Aa) correlates with the clinical and immunoinflammatory profile of Localized Aggressive Periodontitis (LAP), as determined by by 16S rRNA gene-based microarray. SUBJECTS AND METHODS Subgingival plaque samples from the deepest diseased(More)
In this paper, the problem of tracking convoys using Ground Moving Target Indicator (GMTI) radar systems is investigated. Some relevant techniques are reviewed. An approach to exploit group information, road map, and Doppler blindness information in convoy tracking is proposed. Simulated measurement data are used to evaluate the performance against a(More)
OBJECTIVE The objective of this case-control study was to quantify the immune responsiveness in individuals with type 2 diabetes (T2D) as compared with patients without diabetes (NT2D) diagnosed with periodontitis. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS Peripheral blood was collected from 20 patients with moderate-to-severe chronic periodontitis (10 T2D, 10 NT2D).(More)
The interacting multiple model for out-of-sequence measurements with acoustic and electro-optic (EO) fusion bearings-only tracker (IMMOOSM-AE-BOT) has been developed recently to track maneuvering targets from delayed acoustic sensor measurements and non-delayed EO sensor measurements on the same single platform. In this paper, we extend the IMMOOSM-AE-BOT(More)
Although there has been extensive research on the processing of the emotional meaning of music, little is known about other aspects of listeners' experience of music. The present study investigated the neural correlates of the iconic meaning of music. Event-related potentials (ERP) were recorded while a group of 20 music majors and a group of 20 non-music(More)
