Cell transplantation therapy will mean a breakthrough in resolving the donor shortage in cardiac transplantation. Cardiomyocyte (CM) transplantation, however, has been relatively inefficient in restoring cardiac function after myocardial infarction (MI) due to low engraftment of transplanted CM. In order to ameliorate engraftment of CM, the novel(More)
Recently, induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) were established as promising cell sources for revolutionary regenerative therapies. The initial culture system used for iPSC generation needed fetal calf serum in the culture medium and mouse embryonic fibroblast as a feeder layer, both of which could possibly transfer unknown exogenous antigens and(More)
We propose JitSeer, a long horizon prediction method for the delay variation of IP packets; i.e., jitter. In designing JitSeer, we directed our attention to similarities between delay variation, which is the variation of one-way delay, and volatility in finance, which is the variation of financial asset return. From a time series view, the similarities are(More)
AIMS With the new era of multi-tip radiofrequency or balloon ablation catheters replacing the point-to-point ablation strategy, we aimed to determine the feasibility of a ring-laser catheter ablation technology to electrically isolate the superior vena cava (SVC) by exploring the advantages of the limitless catheter tip size possibly with the photodynamic(More)
This paper describes the introduction of an e-marketplace system called " RealtimeMarket, " on which broadcast airtime opportunities that are made available by datacasting can be handled in real-time. Features of this system are as follows: (1) real-time information sharing on the marketplace through the usual HTML browsers is enabled, even over the HTTP(More)
The spread of ubiquitous communications is dramatically changing the way of daily work. In this paper, we present an ad-hoc endpoint pairing method that enables a user to easily establish a pair of endpoints, such as an IP-hard phone (fixed or mobile IP-phone) and a PC-based soft phone, simply by simultaneously clicking a GUI button on the display screen of(More)
