We here report a case of trisomy 21 with congenital chylothorax. The patient was a male newborn who had been diagnosed as having trisomy 21 with congenital chylothorax. This is the fifth case of the both conditions in English literature. Congenital chylothorax is very rare in a trisomy 21 patient. There, however, may be causal relationship between the two(More)
BACKGROUND Tuberculosis (TB) is a worldwide infectious disease. Recently, standard therapy has become very effective for treating patients with TB; however, as a result of this powerful regimen, serious side effects have become an important problem. The aim of this prospective study was to evaluate the usefulness of the drug lymphocyte stimulation test(More)
Energy, a fundamental entity of modern life, is usually produced using fossil fuels as the primary raw material. A consequence of burning fossil fuels is the emission of environmentally harmful substances. Energy production systems generate steam and electricity that are served to different process customers to satisfy their energy requirement. The(More)
—Since their introduction in constructive cryptographic applications, pairings over (hyper)elliptic curves are at the heart of an ever increasing number of protocols. As they rely critically on efficient implementations of pairing primitives, the study of hardware accelerators has become an active research area. In this paper, we propose two coprocessors(More)
This paper describes the AC-coupled, single-sided, pin -n silicon microstrip sensors used in the Semiconductor Tracker (SCT) of the ATLAS experiment at the CERN Large Hadron Collider (LHC). The sensor requirements, specifications and designs are discussed, together with the qualification and quality assurance procedures adopted for their production. The(More)
Source levels and phonation intervals of whistles produced by a free-ranging baiji (Chinese river dolphin) were measured in the seminatural reserve of Shishou in Hubei, China. A total of 43 whistles were recorded over 12 recording sessions. The mean dominant frequency (the frequency at the highest energy) was 5.7 kHz (s.d. = 0.67). The calculated source(More)
When evaluating catching efficiency of trawl nets for snow crabs, assessing crab behavior around the footrope is crucial. Using two underwater video cameras, we captured footage at three sections of footrope with different thicknesses and attack angles in relation to the towing direction: the belly, the lower wing gusset, and the wing sections. Based on the(More)
Process systems must interact with other systems by exchanging materials and utilities such as steam and electricity in order to attain production goals; such exchange of materials among different processes that may belong to different companies makeup the supply chain for a particular product. The integration of different process systems for improvement of(More)
A 31-year-old man was admitted to our hospital because of frequent diarrhea. Colonoscopy showed ring ulcers on the rectum and ascending colon and chest X-ray showed abnormal shadows which were diagnosed as tuberculosis by sputum PCR. He started treatment with isoniazid (INH), rifampicin (RFP), pyrazinamide (PZA) and streptomycin (SM), however, eruption and(More)
