This paper presents a unified approach for Chinese lexical analysis using hierarchical hidden Markov model (HHMM), which aims to incorporate Chinese word segmentation, Part-Of-Speech tagging, disambiguation and unknown words recognition into a whole theoretical frame. A class-based HMM is applied in word segmentation, and in this level unknown words are(More)
Adiponectin and adiponectin receptors (AdipoR1/2) are expressed in various tissues and are involved in the regulation of multiple functions such as energy metabolism and inflammatory responses. However, the effect of adiponectin and AdipoRs in submandibular glands has not been fully evaluated. In the present study, we found that mRNA and protein of both(More)
BACKGROUND A reliable anterior facial vein (AFV, donor vein) is cardinal for the success of submandibular gland (SMG) transplantation. This study determined the impact of computed tomographic (CT) venography in identifying AFV variations for SMG transplantation. METHODS CT venography was performed in consecutive patients with severe dry eye prior to SMG(More)
