Dumb and deaf people are unable to interact with robots using a traditional human-machine interface (HMI). Lip motion is an useful way for these people to communicate with machines, even for normal people in extremely noisy environments. However, the recognition of lip motion is a difficult task since the region of interest (ROI) is nonlinear and noisy.(More)
UNLABELLED BACKGROUNDOBJECTIVE: MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are small noncoding RNAs (ribonucleic acids), approximately 22 nucleotides in length, that function as regulators of gene expression. Dysregulation of miRNAs has been associated with the initiation and progression of oncogenesis in humans. The cell division cycle (CDC)25 phosphatases are important(More)
The problem of trip planning with time constraints aims to find the optimal routes satisfying the maximum time requirement and possessing the highest attraction score. In this paper, a more efficient algorithm TripRec is proposed to solve this problem. Based on the principle of the Aprior algorithm for mining frequent item sets, our method constructs(More)
The forkhead box transcription factor A2 (FOXA2) is a member of the hepatocyte nuclear factor family and plays an important role in liver development and metabolic homeostasis, but its role in the metastasis of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) has not been evaluated. In this study, we found that the expression of FOXA2 was decreased in 68.1% (49/72) of human(More)
Surfactant protein A (SP-A), encoded by two functional genes, SP-A1 and SP-A2, is essential for the inflammatory process and host defence in the lungs. Recent studies have demonstrated the extrapulmonary expression of SP-A. Similar to the lungs, the kidneys are organs exposed to external pathogens. The present study evaluated the expression and location of(More)
Netrin-1 and its receptor UNC5B play important roles in angiogenesis, embryonic development, cancer and inflammation. However, their expression patttern and biological roles in bladder cancer have not been well characterized. The present study aims to investigating the clinical significance of PKC α, netrin-1 and UNC5B in bladder cancer as well as their(More)
BACKGROUND Lung injury is often studied without consideration for pathologic changes in the chest wall. In order to reduce the incidence of lung injury using preemptive mechanical ventilation, it is important to recognize the influence of altered chest wall mechanics on disease pathogenesis. In this study, we hypothesize that airway pressure release(More)
UNC5B is a membrane-bound receptor of the neural guidance factor netrin-1 family, with important roles in angiogenesis, neurogenesis, embryonic development, cancer, inflammation and various pathologies. However, its effect on bladder cancer has not been reported. To investigate the association of UNC5B expression with bladder cancer prognosis, 100 cases of(More)
