Mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs) have attracted much attention due to their mobility and ease of deployment. However, the wireless and dynamic natures render them more vulnerable to various types of security attacks than the wired networks. The major challenge is to guarantee secure network services. To meet this challenge, certificate revocation is an(More)
Cytokines play an important role in the immunological pathogenesis of schistosomiasis. Schistosomiasis would be associated with an imbalance in inflammatory cytokines that leads to a decrease of T helper (Th) 1 and an increase of Th2 cytokine secretion. Corresponding data so far have been inconsistent, so we performed a meta-analysis to assess whether(More)
The continuous growth in both commercial and public network traffic with various quality-of-service (QoS) requirements is calling for better service than the Internet's best effort mechanism. One of the challenging issues is to predict the overall behavior of aggregate network traffic. While network traffic characterization has been studied extensively due(More)

Schistosoma japonicum is the pathogen responsible for schistosomiasis japonica, one of the major infectious diseases targeted for prevention nationally in China. Expression of heat shock proteins (HSPs) following stress plays a very important biological role in many organisms including S. japonicum. Among the HSP family, the 70-kDa HSPs are most responsible(More)
Smart devices bring us the ubiquitous mobile accessing to Internet, making mobile Internet grow rapidly. Using the mobile traffic data collected at core metropolitan 2G and 3G networks of China over a week, this paper studies the mobile user behavior from three aspects: 1) data usage; 2) mobility pattern; and 3) application usage. We classify mobile users(More)
Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is the most common cancer type. There is a correlation between selenium (Se) deficiency and the incidence of HCC. To clarify the effects of Se level on the risk of HCC patients, a meta-analysis was performed. A total of 9 articles published between 1994 and 2016 worldwide were selected through searching PubMed, EMBASE, web of(More)
Selenium (Se) deficiency induces Ca2+ leak and calcification in mammal skeletal muscles; however, the exact mechanism is still unclear. In the present study, both Se-deficient chicken muscle models and selenoprotein W (SelW) gene knockdown myoblast and embryo models were used to study the mechanism. The results showed that Se deficiency-induced typical(More)
Macrophages as a principal component of immune system play an important role in the initiation, modulation, and final activation of immune response against pathogens including schistosomes. Classical (M1) or alternative (M2) activation states of macrophage have different functions during infections. Previously, we report that the schistosomal-derived(More)
Internet traffic monitoring and analysis have been a very essential way in network management and optimization for the ISP. GPRS networks are increasingly carrying Internet traffic for Web browsing, Email and online games etc. In this paper, we proposed a Hadoop based cloud computing platform for high-speed network traffic analysis. We experimentally prove(More)
