Characterizing Quantum Theory in Terms of Information-Theoretic Constraints
We show that three fundamental information-theoretic constraints—the impossibility of superluminal information transfer between two physical systems by performing measurements on one of them, the

Abstract This paper is a commentary on the foundational significance of the Clifton-Bub-Halvorson theorem characterizing quantum theory in terms of three information-theoretic constraints. I argue
Prostate Cancer Cell-Adipocyte Interaction
Leptin is identified as a novel growth factor in androgen-independent prostate cancer cell growth and adipose cytokines, as well as c-Jun NH2-terminal kinase, are key mediators between obesity and hormone-resistant prostate cancer and could be therapeutic targets.
A Proposed Solution of the Measurement Problem in Quantum Mechanics by a Hidden Variable Theory
The measurement problem in quantum mechanics is re-examined and it is shown that it cannot really be solved in a satisfactory way, within the framework of the usual interpretation of the theory. We
Quantum Mechanics is About Quantum Information
I argue that quantum mechanics is fundamentally a theory about the representation and manipulation of information, not a theory about the mechanics of nonclassical waves or particles. The notion of
Secure Key Distribution via Pre- and Post-Selected Quantum States
A quantum key distribution scheme whose security depends on the features of pre- and post-selected quantum states is described.
Adiponectin as a growth inhibitor in prostate cancer cells.
Prostate cancer is associated with obesity. However, the molecular basis of this association is not well known. Adiponectin is a major adipose cytokine that decreases in circulation in obesity and

I define sublaltices of quantum propositions that can be taken as having determinate (but perhaps unknown) truth values for a given quantum state, in the sense that sufficiently many two-valued maps
Adiponectin activates c-Jun NH2-terminal kinase and inhibits signal transducer and activator of transcription 3.
This work identifies c-Jun NH(2)-terminal kinase (JNK), and signal transducer and activator of transcription 3 (STAT3) as common downstream effectors of f- and g-adiponectin.
