—The popularity of 3D content is on the rise since it provides an immersive experience to viewers. In this situation, depth-image-based rendering (DIBR) has taken on an important role in 3D technology due to its low bandwidth cost and ease of depth configuration. Noting that the viewer could record provided center view or synthesized views for illegal(More)
Selegiline is a monoamine oxidase-B (MAO-B) inhibitor with anti-Parkinsonian effects, but it is metabolized to amphetamines. Since another MAO-B inhibitor N-Methyl, N-propynyl-2-phenylethylamine (MPPE) is not metabolized to amphetamines, we examined whether MPPE induces behavioral side effects and whether MPPE affects dopaminergic toxicity induced by(More)
Obesity and metabolic syndrome (MetS) are considered chronic inflammatory states. Chemerin, a novel adipokine, may play an important role in linking MetS and inflammation. We investigated the association of chemerin with inflammatory markers and with characteristics of MetS in apparently healthy overweight and obese adults. We studied 92 adults; 59 men and(More)
As screenshots of copyrighted video contents are spreading through the Internet without any regulation, the copyright infringement arises gradually. However, there are still no techniques that prevent illegal screenshots from spreading out. Since most television systems use interlaced scanning mode and camcorders offer interlaced recording, many screenshots(More)
Three dimensional (3D) video technologies have made noticeable progress and become common. The 3D videos using depth image based rendering (DIBR) technique are getting the spotlight due to its visual reality, however, they are exposed to illegal distribution. To protect 3D video contents from copyright infringement, a 3D video watermarking scheme can be(More)
BACKGROUND This retrospective study aimed to characterize and analyze the outcome of therapy-related myeloid neoplasms (t-MNs) in children and adolescents. METHODS The medical records of 16 patients under 21 years of age at the time of t-MN diagnosis were reviewed. RESULTS The median patient age was 11.5 years (range, 1.6-20.4 yr). Twelve patients had(More)
Genetic polymorphisms are important factors in the effects and toxicity of chemotherapeutics. To analyze the pharmacogenetic and ethnic differences in chemotherapeutics, major genes implicated in the treatment of acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) were analyzed. Eighteen loci of 16 genes in 100 patients with ALL were analyzed. The distribution of variant(More)
