1. When all factors that could influence the effect size are the same among all eligible studies, the fixed effect models should be considered. However, in our study, some factors that could influence the effect size, such as study design and patient populations, are not identical among all included studies. We therefore chose a random-effect model to(More)
General purpose computation based on GPU is a hot topic for research in recent years. The paper presents the parallel implementation of Viterbi algorithm on GPU based on features of GPU and characteristics of Viterbi algorithm in keyword spotting system. The results of examination by using NVIDIA 9600 GT GPU show that the GPU, in comparison to traditional(More)
Both x-ray crystallography and chemical footprinting indicate that bases of the HIV type 1 (HIV-1) polypurine tract (PPT)-containing RNA/DNA hybrid deviate from standard Watson-Crick base pairing. However, the contribution of these structural anomalies to the accuracy of plus-strand primer selection by HIV-1 reverse transcriptase is not immediately clear.(More)
Although a large number of anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstructions are performed annually, there remains a considerable amount of controversy over whether an autograft or an allograft should be used. The aim of this meta-analysis was to compare the clinical outcomes of allograft and autograft in primary ACL reconstruction. The authors(More)
Effective hydrolysis of epoxides and aziridines was conducted by heating them in water at 60 or 100 degrees C. Other types of nucleophile such as amines, sodium azide, and thiophenol could also efficiently open epoxides and aziridines in hot water. It was proposed that hot water acted as a modest acid catalyst, reactant, and solvent in the hydrolysis(More)
There is tremendous growing interest in utilizing biomass molecules for energy provision due to their carbon neutrality. Here, we employ ethylene glycol as a model compound for catalytic activation, which represents a basic unit for complex carbohydrate molecules (polyols). In this paper, hydrogenolysis of ethylene glycol to produce methanol in hydrogen(More)
A remarkable effect from the modification of electronic and geometric properties of Pd nanoparticles by the use of polymer pendant groups bound to the surface of palladium nanoparticles is reported. The degree of electron promotion to the Pd nanoparticles under ambient conditions was found to be dependent on the availability of the lone pair electrons of(More)
The purpose of the current study was to develop a novel technology to enhance tendon-to-bone interface healing by trypsinizing and mineralizing (TM) an intrasynovial tendon allograft in a rabbit bone tunnel model. Eight rabbit flexor digitorum profundus (FDP) tendons were used to optimize the trypsinization process. An additional 24 FDP tendons were(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of the current study was to determine whether a rat fasciocutaneous flap could be decellularized using detergent perfusion and/or agitation methods while preserving the integrity of the extracellular matrix and circulatory networks. METHODS Superficial inferior epigastric arterial flaps of 50 rats were randomly divided into the(More)
Single layer MoS2 synthesized by exfoliation with Li is demonstrated to take up the dye molecule, Eosin Y, with strong binding affinity via sulfur vacancies. This dye-sensitized single layer MoS2 ensemble exhibits remarkable activity and stability for photocatalytic hydrogen production from water.
