{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)
OBJECTIVES Gefitinib, a quinazoline-derived tyrosine kinase inhibitor, has anti-tumor activity in vivo and in vitro. Human MutS homologue-2 (MSH2) plays a central role in promoting genetic stability by correcting DNA replication errors. The present study investigated the effects of p38 mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) signal on gefitinib-induced MSH2(More)
Metformin is an antidiabetic drug recently shown to inhibit cancer cell proliferation and growth, although the involved molecular mechanisms have not been elucidated. In many cancer cells, high expression of thymidine phosphorylase (TP) and Excision repair cross-complementation 1 (ERCC1) is associated with poor prognosis. We used A549 and H1975 human(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)
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)
Curcumin (diferuloylmethane), a phenolic compound obtained from the rhizome of Curcuma longa, has been found to inhibit cell proliferation in various human cancer cell lines, including non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Thymidine phosphorylase (TP) is considered an attractive therapeutic target, because increased TP expression can suppress cancer cell(More)
Etoposide (VP-16), a topoisomerase II inhibitor, is an effective anticancer drug currently used for the treatment of a wide range of cancers. Excision repair cross-complementary 1 (ERCC1) is a key protein involved in the process of nucleotide excision repair. High level of ERCC1 expression in cancers is associated with resistance to DNA damage-based(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)
Metformin, an extensively used and well-tolerated drug for treating individuals with type 2 diabetes, has recently gained significant attention as an anticancer drug. On the other hand, paclitaxel (Taxol) is a new antineoplastic drug that has shown promise in the treatment of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). High expression levels of excision repair(More)
Heat shock protein 90 (HSP90) is an exciting new target in cancer therapy. Repair protein Rad51 is involved in protecting non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) cell lines against chemotherapeutic agent-induced cytotoxicity. This study investigated the role of Rad51 expression in HSP90 inhibitor 17-allylamino-17-demethoxygeldanamycin (17-AAG)-induced(More)
