Since 2001, there have been a myriad of papers on systematic analysis of Multi-Processor System on Chip (MPSoC) and Network on Chip (NoC). Nevertheless, we only have a few of their practical application. Till now, main interest of researchers has been to adapt NoC to the communication intensive multimedia system like H.263. However, this paper attempts to(More)
A treatment protocol, called experiential cognitive therapy (ExCT), was developed. It integrated traditional cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) with virtual reality exposure for the treatment of panic disorder with agoraphobia (PDA). The objective of this study was to test the efficacy of short-term (four sessions) ExCT compared with a traditional 12-session(More)
Mesenchymal stromal cells (MSCs) are seen as an ideal source of cells to induce graft acceptance; however, some reports have shown that MSCs can be immunogenic rather than immunosuppressive. We speculate that the immunomodulatory effects of regulatory T cells (Tregs) can aid the maintenance of immunoregulatory functions of MSCs, and that a combinatorial(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS Eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE) is a chronic inflammatory disorder of the esophagus. Similar to asthma, EoE can induce irreversible structural changes in the esophagus as a result of chronic and persistent eosinophilic inflammation. The aim of this study was to analyse changes in symptoms, eosinophil counts and endoscopic findings after(More)
Three-bond (3)J(C'C') and (3)J(HNHα) couplings in peptides and proteins are functions of the intervening backbone torsion angle ϕ. In well-ordered regions, (3)J(HNHα) is tightly correlated with (3)J(C'C'), but the presence of large ϕ angle fluctuations differentially affects the two types of couplings. Assuming the ϕ angles follow a Gaussian distribution,(More)
(3) JC'C' and (3) JHNHα couplings are related to the intervening backbone torsion angle ${\varphi }$ by standard Karplus equations. Although these couplings are known to be affected by parameters other than ${\varphi }$, including H-bonding, valence angles and residue type, experimental results and quantum calculations indicate that the impact of these(More)
To monitor water quality continuously over the entire sewer network is important for efficient management of the system. However, it is practically impossible to implement continuous water quality monitoring of all junctions of a sewer system due to budget constraints. Therefore, water quality monitoring locations must be selected as those points which are(More)
(A) Patient with posttraumatic enophthalmos and hypoglobus of the right eye. (B) Upward gaze limitation was noted on preoperative day 1. A B or a nerve sheath injury whereas direct damage to the optic nerve during dissection and insertion of implant materials is also possible. We report a case of a patient with postoperative traumatic optic neuropathy due(More)
Massive weight loss results in skin excess, leading to an unsatisfying body contour. Various thigh lift procedures can correct flabby skin in the lower leg. We present a lower body contouring technique with a report on two patients. The procedure is determined by the body contour of the patient. As the skin excess in the thigh area tended to appear mostly(More)
which permits unrestricted non-commercial use, distribution, and reproduction in any medium, provided the original work is properly cited. The McIndoe operation is a widely performed surgical procedure for neovaginal reconstruction [1]. It creates a neovaginal cavity by dissecting between the bladder and rectum, and grafts skin to resurface a surgically(More)
