Significant interspecies differences exist between human and rodent with respect to absorption, distribution, and excretion of bisphenol A (BPA) and its primary metabolite, BPA-glucuronide (BPA-G). ATP-Binding Cassette (ABC) transporter enzymes play important roles in these physiological processes, and their enzyme localization (apical vs. basolateral) in(More)
This paper reviews recent progress in the development of GaAs metamorphic HEMT (MHEMT) technology for microwave applications. Commercialization has begun, while efforts to further improve performance, manufacturability and reliability continue. We also report the first multi-watt MHEMT MMIC power amplifiers, demonstrating up to 3.2W output power and record(More)
This paper presents an overview of the rapid progress being made in the development of InP HEMT devices and circuits for high frequency analog applications. Although widespread use of InP HEMTs has to date been limited by their comparatively high cost, commercialization now appears to be inevitable due to recent progress on two parallel fronts-the(More)
Gastrointestinal (GI) absorption in physiologically based pharmacokinetic models is typically described as first-order transfer from one compartment directly into the liver. This approach appears to be adequate for water but not for oily vehicles. In this study, a two-compartment description of GI absorption was developed in which the chemical moved from(More)
Entity resolution (ER) is a common data cleaning task that involves determining which records from one or more data sets refer to the same real-world entities. Because a pairwise comparison of all records scales quadratically with the number of records in the data sets to be matched, it is common to use blocking or indexing techniques to reduce the number(More)
Obesity results from a number of factors including socio-environmental influences and rodent models show that several different stressors increase the preference for calorically dense foods leading to an obese phenotype. We present here a non-human primate model using socially housed adult female macaques living in long-term stable groups given access to(More)
Textual databases are ubiquitous in many application domains. Examples of textual data range from names and addresses of customers to social media posts and bibliographic records. With online services, individuals are increasingly required to enter their personal details for example when purchasing products online or registering for government services,(More)
Acknowledgements Many people have assisted me in carrying out this project. Firstly I would like to thank my academic supervisors, Associate Professor Peter Christen and Dr. Qing Wang for their ideas, support, encouragement and feedback. I would also like to thank Dr. Paul Wong from the ANU Research Office for providing me with a place to work and helpful(More)
The temporal linkage of census data allows the detailed analysis of population-related changes in an area of interest. It should not only link records about the same person but also support the linkage of groups of related persons such as households. In this paper, we thus propose a new approach to both temporal record and group (household) linkage for(More)
