P1 was the second child of non-consanguineous parents. Her elder brother (P2), who had not been vaccinated against BCG, died of disseminated TB at 6 years of age. After routine BCG vaccination, P1 developed a tender, progressively enlarged left axillary mass at 1.5 months of age, which subsequently developed to involve the left cervical lymph nodes. Pus(More)
We hypothesised that varying native oocyte-secreted factor (OSF) exposure or using different recombinant OSF peptides would have differential effects on post-in vitro maturation (IVM) embryo and fetal development. Mouse cumulus oocyte complexes (COCs) were treated with the purified mature domain of GDF9 and/or BMP15 or were co-cultured with denuded oocytes(More)
A novel hybrid temporary spectral coding technique based on fiber Bragg gratings for fiber-optic CDMA application is proposed and demonstrated experimentally for the first time to our knowledge. Significant improvement in fiber-optic CDMA networks at high bit rates is expected.
An improved blind multiuser receiver employing the genetic algorithms (GA) for synchronous DS-CDMA systems with a space-time block coding (STBC) design in the Rayleigh flat-fading channels is proposed. The channel state information is blind to both the transmitter and the receiver. In the receiver only the spreading sequence for the desired user(s) and the(More)
A multiuser orthogonal space-time block coding (STBC) system in a Rayleigh flat-fading channel with a squaring method is proposed. Soft interference suppression in the multiuser demodulator is combined with the iterative MAP decoding algorithm in the receiver and a squaring method is introduced to eliminate the need to conjugate the received signals and the(More)
Wavelength-tunable multiple-gigahertz-repetition-rate single- and dual-wavelength nearly-transform-limited short pulses were demonstrated in a mode-locked fiber ring laser using a Fabry-Perot semiconductor laser, which served not only as a mode-locker but also as a wavelength-tunable filter.
