In this paper, we proposed an efficient packet scheduling scheme, where the tradeoff of channel condition and QoS(quality of service) is factored according to the user traffic. It can be performed by adding the exponent term to the part of DRC(data rate control) which indicates the channel condition, in the proportional fair algorithm. With measuring the(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to investigate correlations between diffuse splenic FDG uptake and hematological and inflammatory parameters to clarify the significance of splenic FDG uptake on PET/CT images. METHODS We retrospectively analyzed the consecutive records of F-18 FDG PET/CT scans and selected 31 patients with diffuse splenic FDG(More)
Bleeding is the most common and serious adverse effect of currently available antiplatelet drugs. Many efforts are being made to develop novel antithrombotic agents without bleeding risks. Shear stress-induced platelet aggregation (SIPA), which occurs under abnormally high shear stress, plays a crucial role in the development of arterial thrombotic(More)
Anemia is probably one of the most well-known toxic effects of lead. Previously, lead-induced anemia was considered to be from the inhibition of δ-aminolevulinic acid dehydratase participating in the heme biosynthesis. However, little is known whether lead could affect the destruction of erythrocyte, another important factor for anemia. In the present(More)
Despite the wide use of silver nanoparticles (nano Ag), its toxicity still remains poorly understood. In this report, nano Ag induced an increase in platelet aggregation and procoagulant activation which are the key contributors to thrombotic diseases. In freshly isolated human platelets, nano Ag induced platelet aggregation and procoagulant activation(More)
Individuals with neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1) are prone to develop optic pathway gliomas that can result in significant visual impairment. To explore the cellular basis for the reduced visual function resulting from optic glioma formation, we used a genetically engineered mouse model of Nf1 optic glioma (Nf1+/-(GFAP)CKO mice). We performed multimodal(More)
Ginseng, one of most well-known herbal medicines, is widely and indiscreetly used among the patients with cardiovascular disorders, raising concern over abuse of this medicine and unwanted effects. In this study, we investigated the effects of ginsenoside Rg3 (Rg3), an active ingredient of ginseng, on vascular contractility and structural integrity to(More)
A close link between arsenic exposure and hypertension has been well-established through many epidemiological reports, yet the mechanism underlying it remains unclear. Here we report that nanomolar concentrations of monomethylarsonous acid (MMA(III)), a toxic trivalent methylated arsenic metabolite, can potentiate agonist-induced vasoconstriction and(More)
