In the public key cryptosystems, revocation functionality is required when a secret key is corrupted by hacking or the period of a contract expires. In the public key infrastructure setting, numerous solutions have been proposed, and in the Identity Based Encryption (IBE) setting, a recent series of papers proposed revocable IBE schemes. Delegation of key(More)
Efficient and privacy-preserving constructions for search functionality on encrypted data is important issues for data outsourcing, and data retrieval, etc. Fully secure anonymous Hierarchical ID-Based Encryption (HIBE) schemes is useful primitives that can be applicable to searchable encryptions [4], such as ID-based searchable encryption, temporary(More)
In ACM CCS 2008, Boldyreva et al. proposed an elegant way of achieving an Identity-based Encryp-tion (IBE) with efficient revocation, which we call revocable IBE (RIBE). One of the significant benefit of their construction is scalability, where the overhead of the trusted authority is logarithmically increased in the number of users, whereas that in the(More)
At Eurocrypt 2010, Freeman proposed a transformation from pairing-based schemes in composite-order bilinear groups to equivalent ones in prime-order bilinear groups. His transformation can be applied to pairing-based cryptosystems exploiting only one of two properties of composite-order bilinear groups: cancelling and projecting. At Asiacrypt 2010,(More)
Projecting bilinear pairings have frequently been used for designing cryptosystems since they were first derived from composite order bilinear groups. There have been only a few studies on the (im)possibility of projecting bilinear pairings. Groth and Sahai showed that projecting bilinear pairings can be achieved in the prime-order group setting. They(More)
Tissue microenvironment is an important determinant of carcinogenesis. We demonstrate that ionizing radiation, a known carcinogen, affects cancer frequency and characteristics by acting on the microenvironment. Using a mammary chimera model in which an irradiated host is transplanted with oncogenic Trp53 null epithelium, we show accelerated development of(More)
The important prognostic factors were evaluated for T-cell non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) patients in a prospective study using the CEOP-B protocol [a modified cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin, vincristine and prednisone (CHOP)-like regimen that uses epirubicin instead of doxorubicin with the addition of bleomycin]. Fifty-two patients were enrolled in the study.(More)
Insulin-like growth factor binding protein-3 (IGFBP-3) is a putative tumor suppressor and inhibits the mitogenic and antiapoptotic activity of insulin-like growth factor (IGF) by blocking the binding to its receptors or by IGF-independent manner. Epidemiological studies have suggested that serum level of IGFBP-3 is associated with lung cancer risk. The(More)
BACKGROUND Platelets have been reported to act as transporters of tumor-originated vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), contributing to tumor angiogenesis and progression. Serum VEGF per platelet count, as an indirect theoretical estimate of VEGF in platelets, may predict the malignant potential of tumors. However, its prognostic significance is still(More)
