Time-series data of normalized difference vegetation index (NDVI), derived from satellite sensors, can be used to support land-cover change detection and phenological interpretations, but further analysis and applications are hindered by residual noise in the data. As an alternative to a number of existing algorithms developed to compensate for such noise,(More)
Camptothecin (CPT), known to be an effective anticancer drug, has a limited therapeutic utility because of its poor water solubility. In this work, an approach has been made to overcome the limitation. CPT was first incorporated into the micelles formed from an ionic surfactant, sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS) and the micellar drug aqueous solution was then(More)
Polymer blending is a simple yet attractive method to obtain combined physical and mechanical properties of polymers. In this paper, three types of blend hydrogels were prepared, each by physically blending two different natural polymers, and a model drug, theophylline (TPH), was immobilized into these hydrogels for the studies of drug release. The release(More)
The prevalence, profiles, and potential risk factors of snoring and obstructive sleep apnea–hypopnea syndrome (OSAHS) in China are largely unknown. This study aims to investigate the prevalence, profiles, and potential risk factors for snoring and OSAHS in Guangxi, China, and the association between OSAHS and ethnicity. Urban and rural population-based(More)
The interaction and adsorption of enzyme, glucose oxidase (GOx), on poly(methyl methacrylate)-bovine serum albumin (PMMA-BSA) particles were studied by using a quartz crystal microbalance with dissipation (QCM-D) and laser light scattering (LLS). The enzyme was irreversibly immobilized on the PMMA-BSA particle surface. The amount of enzyme immobilized on(More)
Nanosized copper aluminate (CuAl(2)O(4)) spinel particles have been prepared by a precursor approach with the aid of ultrasound radiation. Mono-phasic copper aluminate with a crystallite diameter of 17nm along the (311) plane was formed when the products were synthesized using Cu(NO(3))(2) x 6H(2)O and Al(NO(3))(3) x 9H(2)O as starting materials, with urea(More)
The traditional scheduling theory can only get the approximate optimal solution of the problem, and most is to consider algorithms on a single task or independent multitask scheduling. It presents a particle swarm algorithm to solve the task scheduling problem of computational grid. It builds a task scheduling model of computational grid, changes the(More)
The role of leptin in the development of obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA) has been identified. However, the effects of OSA treatment using continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) on serum leptin levels remain controversial. To address this issue, a meta-analysis was conducted to evaluate the effects of CPAP therapy on serum leptin levels in OSA. A(More)
2-Aminoacetylthiophenol (AATP)-modified Amberlite XAD-2 has been synthesized by coupling it through NNNH group. The resulting chelating resin, characterized by elemental analysis, thermogravimetric analysis (TGA) and infrared (IR) spectra, was used to preconcentrate Cd, Hg, Ag, Ni, Co, Cu and Zn ions. Several parameters, such as distribution coefficient and(More)
