Irinotecan hydrochloride (CPT-11) shows marked anti-tumour activity alone and in combination with cisplatin in non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC). It is necessary to investigate combined-modality therapy including novel effective anti-cancer agents to improve long-term survival of patients with unresectable stage III NSCLC. A phase I/II study of concurrent… (More)
Reducing IR-drop in the test cycle during at-speed scan testing has become mandatory for avoiding test-induced yield loss. An efficient approach for this purpose is post-ATPG test modification based on <i>X</i>-identification and <i>X</i>-filling since it causes no circuit/clock design change and no test vector count inflation. However, applying this… (More)
Test data modification based on test relaxation and X-filling is the preferable approach for reducing excessive IR-drop in at-speed scan testing to avoid test-induced yield loss. However, none of the existing test relaxation methods can control the distribution of identified don't care bits (X-bits), thus adversely affecting the effectiveness of IR-drop… (More)
We retrospectively analysed neuromuscular toxicity associated with paclitaxel 210 mg m(-2) given by 3-h infusion in 247 patients. The severity correlated significantly with total cumulative dose, but could not be predicted by the pretreatment clinical variables or by pharmacokinetic parameters. The toxicity tended to occur in early treatment cycles.
Ever growing ubiquitous environment makes overall demands for security, speed, and power consciousness in processing huge amount of multimedia data. A practical solution to meet these demands is a safety aware, high-performed, and sophisticated single chip processor. According to this scheme, we have exploited a hardware cryptography-embedded multimedia… (More)
A ubiquitous processor, HCgorilla followed Java CPU for multimedia processing and was built in RNG (random number generators) for cipher processing. Then, HCgorilla had an execution stage composed of several units for those sophisticated processing. Since the execution stage kept physical separation, each function took different latency. This required… (More)
