In this correspondence, an adaptive cooperation diversity scheme with best-relay selection is proposed for multiple-relay cognitive radio networks to improve the performance of secondary transmissions while ensuring the quality of service (QoS) of primary transmissions. Exact closed-form expressions of the outage probability of secondary transmissions,(More)
The objective of the present study was to investigate the specific drug targeting of anticarcinogenic drugs, such as camptothecin (CA), after intravenous (i.v.) injection by incorporation into solid lipid nanoparticles (SLN). A CA loaded SLN suspension consisted of 0.1% (w/w) camptothecin, 2.0% (w/w) stearic acid, 1.5% (w/w) soybean lecithin and 0.5% (w/w)(More)
Controlled-release (CR) matrix tablets of ibuprofen (IBF) and Carbopol(R) 934P, and blended mixture of Carbopol(R) 934P and 971P resins, at different drug to polymers ratios, were prepared by the direct compression method. The investigation focuses on the influence of the proportion of the matrix material, and several co-excipients (lactose,(More)
This paper presents a bibliometric study of the world’s research activity in Sustainable Development using scientific literature. The study was conducted using data from the Scopus database over the time period of 2000–2010. We investigated the research landscape in Sustainable Development at country level and at institute level. Sustainable Development and(More)
Resistant hypertension is always fount to be accompanied with obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS). Previous studies assumed inflammation participated in OSAS and hypertension. The fact that tumor necrosis factor a (TNF-alpha) was related to OSAS, while neuropeptide Y (NPY) was related to hypertension, was widely reported separately. To investigate the(More)
This article investigates the physical-layer security of cognitive radio (CR) networks, which are vulnerable to various newly arising attacks targeting on the weaknesses of CR communications and networking. We first review a range of physical-layer attacks in CR networks, including the primary user emulation, sensing falsification, intelligence compromise,(More)
There is a growing interest in energy efficient or so-called “green” wireless communication to reduce the energy consumption in cellular networks. Since today’s wireless terminals are typically equipped with multiple network access interfaces such as Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and cellular networks, this paper investigates user terminals cooperating with each other(More)
pH-sensitive self-aggregated nanoparticles (SNPs), based on amphiphilic deoxycholic acid (DOCA) modified carboxymethyl chitosan (DCMC), were prepared for delivery of the anticancer drug doxorubicin (DOX). DCMCs with different degrees of substitution (DS) of DOCA were initially synthesized and characterized. Based on self-aggregation, DCMC formed(More)
HEVC doubles the coding efficiency with more than 4x coding complexity as compared to H.264/AVC. To alleviate the burden of Intra encoder, we estimate the RD-cost from the source image textures, and dynamically select two promising CU/PU mode candidates to execute exhaustive RDO processing. As integrated in our hardwired encoder, the averaged 61.7%(More)
