A new version of a real-time global flood monitoring system (GFMS) driven by Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission (TRMM) Multisatellite Precipitation Analysis (TMPA) rainfall has been developed and implemented using a physically based hydrologic model. The purpose of this paper is to evaluate the performance of this new version of the GFMS in terms of flood(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare the efficacy and the clinical value of laparoscopic surgery and traditional abdominal surgery for the treatment of endometrial carcinoma. Meanwhile, assessing the value of preoperative MRI in the depth of myometrial invasion of endometrial carcinoma. METHODS we retrospectively analyzed 32 patients with endometrial carcinoma who(More)
Dihydromyricetin is the principle component of the Chinese herbal tea Teng-cha and a promising ingredient for functional food and nutraceuticals, but its low solubility limits its application potentials. This study explored enzymatic acylation of dihydromyricetin to improve its solubility in lipid systems. Acylation was achieved with several lipases with(More)
The immune response is highly active in Alzheimer's disease (AD). Identification of genetic risk contributed by immune genes to AD may provide essential insight for the prognosis, diagnosis, and treatment of this neurodegenerative disease. In this study, we performed a genetic screening for AD-related top immune genes identified in Europeans in a Chinese(More)
OBJECTIVES Although many studies about breast contrast-enhanced ultrasound had been conducted, clear diagnostic criteria for evaluating enhancement patterns are still lacking. This study aims to identify significant indicators for breast contrast-enhanced ultrasound and to establish an initial scoring system. MATERIALS AND METHODS Totally 839 patients(More)
Mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) content plays an important role in energy production and sustaining normal physiological function. A decline in the mtDNA content and subsequent dysfunction cause various senile diseases, with decreasing mtDNA content observed in the elderly individuals with age-related diseases. In contrast, the oldest old individuals, for(More)
BACKGROUND To investigate the expression of Beclin-1 mRNA and protein in eutopic and ectopic endometrium of women with and without endometriosis, and evaluate the association of Beclin-1 protein expression and serum CA125 levels in the endometriosis group due to CA125 being a well-known biomarker of endometriosis. MATERIALS AND METHODS The expression(More)
12 A widely used land surface model, the Variable Infiltration Capacity (VIC) model, is coupled 13 with a newly developed hierarchical dominant river tracing-based runoff-routing model to form 14 the Dominant river tracing-Routing Integrated with VIC Environment (DRIVE) model, which 15 serves as the new core of the real-time Global Flood Monitoring System(More)
