The problem of delay-dependent robust stabilization for uncertain system with time-delay is considered. By means of the Lyapunov function and linear matrix inequalities (LMIs) technique, a delay-dependent sufficient condition is derived for the existence of a state feedback controller, which ensures asymptotic stability of the closed system for all(More)
Reconfigurable SRAM-based FPGAs are highly susceptible to radiation induced single-event upsets (SEUs) in space applications. The bit flip in FPGAs configuration memory may alter user circuit permanently without proper bitstream reparation, which is a completely different phenomenon from upsets in traditional memory devices. It is important to find the(More)
BACKGROUND The objective of this study was to prepare, characterize, and evaluate a folate-modified self-microemulsifying drug delivery system (FSMEDDS) with the aim to improve the solubility of curcumin and its delivery to the colon, facilitating endocytosis of FSMEDDS mediated by folate receptors on colon cancer cells. METHODS Ternary phase diagrams(More)
AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK) plays an important role in mediating energy metabolism and is controlled mainly by two upstream kinases, LKB1 or Ca(2+)/calmodulin-dependent protein kinase kinase-β (CaMKKβ). Previously, we found that baicalin, one of the major flavonoids in a traditional Chinese herb medicine, Scutellaria baicalensis, protects against(More)
BACKGROUND Childhood obesity has been a serious public health problem. An effective school-based physical activity (PA) intervention is still lacking in China. This study aimed to assess the effectiveness of a school-based physical activity intervention during 12 weeks on obesity and related health outcomes in school children. METHODS It was a(More)
The key of objectivity of traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) pulse condition lies on the objective test and correct recognition for all kinds of pulse conditions. In view of the ambiguity, variety and complexity of TCM pulse conditions, and the shortcomings of the traditional recognition methods and back propagation (BP) neural network method, a kind of TCM(More)
In this paper, we construct an efficient and simple coarse grained (CG) model for atactic polystyrene (PS) by using a 1 : 1 mapping scheme at 463 K and 1 atm pressure and derive the corresponding bonded and non-bonded potentials in the CG force field (FF) via a direct Boltzmann inversion approach and a combined structure-based and thermodynamic(More)
IL-17 and IL-22 are linked to the development of intestinal inflammation and colorectal cancer (CRC). However, the maintenance of IL-17 and IL-22 production, as well as the cell type (Th17) that mediates these cytokines in CRC patients, remains unknown. To examine this, untreated CRC patients and healthy controls were recruited in this study. We first(More)
In this work, the positively or negatively charged anatase TiO2 nanoparticles were synthesized via a low temperature precipitation-peptization process (LTPPP) in the presence of poly(ethyleneimine) (PEI) and poly(sodium4- styrenesulfonate) (PSS). X-ray diffraction (XRD) pattern and high-resolution transmission electron microscope (HRTEM) confirmed the(More)
