{Multimedia computing requires support for heterogeneous data types with differing storage, communication, and delivery requirements. Continuous media data types such as audio and video impose delivery requirements that are not satissed by conventional physical storage organizations. In this paper we describe a physical organization for multi-media data(More)
– One approach to supporting continuous media traffic is via resource reservation at connection establishment time. The shortcomings of this approach are the lack of flexibility in renegotiating bandwidth parameters after connection establishment and the inability to react to changing server load conditions. In this paper we propose a " selected access(More)

The multitargeted antifolate pemetrexed has demonstrated certain clinical activities against nonsmall cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Resveratrol (3,5,4-trihydroxy-trans-stilbene) is a polyphenol found in grapes and other plants and has great potential as a preventative and therapeutic agent due to its anticarcinogenic activity. The efficacy of adding resveratrol(More)
–In this paper we describe the Virtual Video Browser (VVB) software application designed to allow the interactive browsing and content-based query of a video database and to facilitate the subsequent playout of selected titles. The VVB is a manifestation of our mechanisms for the location, identification, and delivery of digital audio and video in a(More)
–Concurrent retrieval of continuous media from a physical storage device can be achieved by interleaving data and providing a suitable scheduling algorithm. Scheduling approaches that exploit gains from statistical multiplexing are susceptible to a non-zero probability of frame loss due to the variable-bit-rate characteristic of compressed video. With(More)
Disease management is a program which attempts to overcome the fragmentation of healthcare system and improve the quality of care. Many studies have proven the effectiveness of disease management. However, the case managers were spending the majority of time in documentation, coordinating the members of the care team. They need a tool to support them with(More)

BACKGROUND Self-management is an important skill for patients with diabetes, and it involves frequent monitoring of glucose levels and behavior modification. Techniques to enhance the behavior changes of diabetic patients have been developed, such as diabetes self-management education and telehealthcare. Although the patients are engaged in self-management(More)
Pigment epithelium-derived factor (PEDF) is a multifunctional protein that exhibits anti-angiogenic, antitumor, anti-inflammatory, antioxidative, anti-atherogenic, and cardioprotective properties. While it was recently shown that PEDF expression is inhibited under low oxygen conditions, the functional role of PEDF in response to hypoxia/reoxygenation (H/R)(More)
