The Alzheimer's Disease Neuroimaging Initiative (ADNI) is a longitudinal multisite observational study of healthy elders, mild cognitive impairment (MCI), and Alzheimer's disease. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), (18F)-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography (FDG PET), urine serum, and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) biomarkers, as well as(More)
The views herein are those of the authors and do not necessarily reflect the views of the supporting agency. Abstract We present a novel approach for key management in wireless sensor networks. Using initial trust built from a small set of shared keys, low-cost protocols enable neighboring sensors to authenticate and establish secure local links. As the(More)
A cortical adrenal carcinoma arising during the neonatal period and associated with virilization recurred after an initial excision and is in complete remission after a follow-up period of 10 years. The authors have performed a review of the medical literature which has yielded 56 neonatal carcinomas including this one. More than half of these cases(More)
Self-regenerative capabilities are a new trend in survivable system design. Self-regeneration ensures the property that a system's vulnerabilities cannot be exploited to the extent that the mission objective is compromised, but instead that the vulnerabilities are eventually removed, and system functionality is restored. To establish the usefulness of(More)
OBJECTIVE Paranasal sinus balloon catheter dilation (BCD) represents a commonly used tool in the management of chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS) for which the indications, utilization, and outcomes have not been well established. A systematic review and meta-analysis were undertaken to evaluate change in quality of life and sinus opacification following(More)
A new radiation phantom with humanoid shape and adjustable thickness (RPHAT) has been developed. Unlike the RANDO phantom which is a fixed thickness, this newly designed phantom has adjustable thickness to address the range of thicknesses of real-world patients. RPHAT allows adjustment of the body thickness by being sliced in the coronal (instead of axial)(More)
CLIC4/mtCLIC, a chloride intracellular channel protein, localizes to the mitochondria and cytoplasm of keratinocytes and participates in the apoptotic response to stress. We now show that multiple stress inducers cause the translocation of cytoplasmic CLIC4 to the nucleus. Immunogold electron microscopy and confocal analyses indicate that nuclear CLIC4 is(More)
mtCLIC/CLIC4 (referred to here as mtCLIC) is a p53- and tumor necrosis factor alpha-regulated cytoplasmic and mitochondrial protein that belongs to the CLIC family of intracellular chloride channels. mtCLIC associates with the inner mitochondrial membrane. Dual regulation of mtCLIC by two stress response pathways suggested that this chloride channel protein(More)
