It is well known that apps running on mobile devices extensively track and leak users' personally identifiable information (PII) [1] and users are generally unaware and unable to stop them [2]; however, these users have little visibility into PII leaked through the network traffic generated by their devices, and have poor control over how, when and where(More)
OBJECTIVE Hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection remains a significant public health problem. The purpose of this study was to investigate the seroepidemiology of HBV in people living in the insular regions, and to provide the most recent baseline data for planning and monitoring of health. METHODS A cross-sectional, community-based survey was conducted(More)
Methods based on sandwich-type electrochemical enzyme immunoassay protocol have been extensively developed for the detection of biomolecules, but most often exhibit low detection signals and low detection sensitivity, and are unsuitable for routine use. In this study, we initially synthesized specially horseradish peroxidase-encapsulated nanogold hollow(More)
Using tongue to access computer for people with none or minimal upper limb function has been studied in recent years. These studies mainly focus on utilizing mechanical or electromagnetic devices. These devices, however, must contact to people's oral cavity and cause hygiene problems or accidental ingestion. This work presents an interaction technique named(More)
Tanshinone IIA is a derivative of phenanthrene-quinone isolated from Danshen, a widely used Chinese herbal medicine. It has antioxidant properties, cytotoxic activities against multiple human cancer cells, inducing apoptosis and differentiation of some human cancer cells. The purpose of this study is to confirm its anticancer activity on human glioma cells,(More)
Fig fruit latex (FFL) contains significant amounts of polyphenolic compounds and can serve as a source of antioxidants after human consumption. The purpose of this study is to confirm anticancer activity of FFL against human cancer cells and to further elucidate its mechanism of activity. Human glioblastoma, hepatocellular carcinoma, and normal liver cells(More)
An integrated automatic electrochemical immunosensor array has been designed for the simultaneous detection of 5-type hepatitis virus antigens (i.e. hepatitis A, hepatitis B, hepatitis C, hepatitis D, and hepatitis E). Initially, 5-type hepatitis virus antibodies were immobilized onto a self-made electrochemical sensor array using nanogold particles and(More)
We tested the hypothesis that elevated homocysteine (Hcy) level is causally associated with increased risk of type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). The meta-analysis and Mendelian randomization analysis were performed among 4011 cases and 4303 controls. The absolute pooled mean Hcy concentration in subjects with MTHFR 677TT was 5.55 μmol/L (95% CI, 1.33 to 9.77)(More)
A novel nanoparticle-based electrochemical immunoassay of carbohydrate antigen 125 (CA125) as a model was designed to couple with a microfluidic strategy using anti-CA125-functionalized magnetic beads as immunosensing probes. To construct the immunoassay, thionine-horseradish peroxidase conjugation (TH-HRP) was initially doped into nanosilica particles(More)
