Although DNA vaccine holds a great potential for cancer immunotherapy, effective long-lasting antitumoral immunity sufficient to induce durable responses in cancer patients remains to be achieved. Considering the pivotal role of dendritic cells (DC) in the antigen processing and presentation, we prepared DC-targeting DNA vaccines by fusing tumor-associated(More)
Urban competitiveness aids local development by encouraging the exploitation of opportunities for economic development and by enhancing overall performance. Previous studies have evaluated urban competitiveness primarily from an economic perspective and few studies have considered locational conditions as factors that might influence local industrialization(More)
Large scale systems, common in cloud computing, rely on redundancy for reliability and availability. Modern clouds have become ever-increasingly complex and diverse creating large messes that experience long outages when failures occur. While there exist significant effort in resolving faults after they occur, we propose a novel approach to untangling this(More)
A Bayesian random effects modeling approach was used to examine the influence of neighborhood characteristics on burglary risks in Jianghan District, Wuhan, China. This random effects model is essentially spatial; a spatially structured random effects term and an unstructured random effects term are added to the traditional non-spatial Poisson regression(More)
—We present an Internet-scale network topology information (NTI) service named WIND for localizing P2P traffic. Central to WIND are the two simple ideas: 1) obtaining NTI directly from routing infrastructures, and 2) leveraging existing, widely deployed DNS caches for NTI delivery. WIND fulfills the fidelity, flexibility and scalability requirement of an(More)
—IP multicast originally works in Any Source Multi-cast (ASM) that comes with great burden and dynamics on the backbone routers and weakness in inter-domain scalability. It also brought serious security and management problems. In contrast, Source-Specific Multicast (SSM) has been recognized as a simple, scalable and secure method, especially in(More)
—Broadcatching is a promising mechanism to improve the experience of BitTorrent users by automatically downloading files advertised through RSS feeds. However, though widely used, the mechanism itself has not been well studied. In this paper, we conducted extensive experiments on PlanetLab to evaluate the performance of Broadcatching under different typical(More)
