Detection of Suspicious Lesions by Adaptive Thresholding Based on Multiresolution Analysis in Mammograms
We present a novel algorithm for the detection of suspicious lesions in mammography. Expand
Conditional neuronal nitric oxide synthase overexpression impairs myocardial contractility.
The role of the neuronal NO synthase (nNOS or NOS1) enzyme in the control of cardiac function still remains unclear. Results from nNOS(-/-) mice or from pharmacological inhibition of nNOS are… Expand
The roles of vascular endothelial growth factor in bone repair and regeneration.
Vascular endothelial growth factor-A (VEGF) is one of the most important growth factors for regulation of vascular development and angiogenesis. Since bone is a highly vascularized organ and… Expand
Osteoblast-derived VEGF regulates osteoblast differentiation and bone formation during bone repair.
Osteoblast-derived VEGF is important for bone development and postnatal bone homeostasis. Previous studies have demonstrated that VEGF affects bone repair and regeneration; however, the cellular… Expand
Dissolution of cellulose in aqueous NaOH/urea solution: role of urea
Urea can improve the solubility and stability of cellulose in aqueous alkali solution, while its role has not come to a conclusion. To reveal the role of urea in solution, NMR was introduced to… Expand

The paper proposes the first approach for automated testing of flow-based microfluidic biochips that are designed using membrane-based valves for flow control. Expand
Vascular endothelial growth factor control mechanisms in skeletal growth and repair
Vascular endothelial growth factor A (VEGF) is a critical regulator of vascular development and postnatal angiogenesis and homeostasis, and it is essential for bone development and repair. Blood… Expand
Conditioning of wastewater sludge using freezing and thawing: role of curing.
Freeze/thaw (F/T) treatment is an efficient pre-treatment process for biological sludges. When bulk sludge was frozen, tiny unfrozen regimes in the ice matrix were continuously dehydrated by… Expand
Phytochemical profiling of the ripening of Chinese mango (Mangifera indica L.) cultivars by real-time monitoring using UPLC-ESI-QTOF-MS and its potential benefits as prebiotic ingredients.

Maturity has important effects on the phytochemical and biochemical characteristics of fruits. It affects the quality, nutritional value, harvest time and commercial operations. In this study, Keitt,… Expand
Retinal vessel segmentation of color fundus images using multiscale convolutional neural network with an improved cross-entropy loss function
We propose a novel retinal vessel segmentation method of the fundus images based on convolutional neural network (CNN) and fully connected conditional random fields (CRFs). Expand
