This paper proposes two cyclostationarity-inducing transmission methods that enable the receiver to distinguish among different systems that use a common orthogonal frequency division multiplexing(OFDM-) based air interface. Specifically, the OFDM signal is configured before transmission such that its cyclic autocorrelation function (CAF) has peaks at(More)
Swine influenza virus (SIV) was isolated from a farm in Miyazaki Prefecture in Japan in July 2006. An isolate was genetically subtyped as H1N2 and was designated A/swine/Miyazaki/1/2006 (H1N2). The nucleotide sequences of all eight viral RNA segments were determined, and then phylogenetic analysis was performed using the neighbor-joining method. All(More)

Important biological signals from the fetus, including fetal heart rate and fetal movement, were obtained electronically by recent medical engineering techniques and processed (usually) via analogue-to-digital converter followed by analysis on a personal computer. The knowledge of obstetrical experts was analysed and used in computer processing. Fetal heart(More)
A series of 1-benzylindole-based TRβ agonists were prepared and evaluated. Compounds 11b' and 11c' were found to have cholesterol-lowering in a rat model with marginal effects on cardiac function and HPT axis. The present work illustrates the potential use of indoles as inner ring isosteres.
The aim of the study is to identify the potential risk factors of cerebral infarction associated with thoracic endovascular aneurysm repair (TEVAR). TEVAR was developed as a less invasive surgical alternative to conventional open repair for thoracic aortic aneurysm treatment. However, outcomes following TEVAR of aortic and distal arch aneurysms remain(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate risk factors for early (<30 days) type I endoleak following thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR). METHODS A retrospective study was conducted of 439 consecutive patients (mean age 74.0±10.0 years; 333 men) who underwent TEVAR at a single center between June 2006 and June 2013. Pathologies included 237 aortic arch aneurysms and(More)
Central pontine myelinolysis (CPM) is a demyelinating disease of the pons often associated with the demyelination of extrapontine areas of the central nervous system. Although the etiology and pathogenesis are unclear, CPM is usually associated with hyponatremia or its rapid correction, and chronic alcoholism is also a common underlying condition. We(More)
We recently reported that the novel thyroid hormone receptor β (TRβ) selective agonists SKL-12846 and SKL-13784 reduce blood cholesterol levels without affecting thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) in cholesterol-fed rats. Our aim in this study was to elucidate what sets apart these SKL-compounds as TRβ agonists with no effect on TSH. To this end, we(More)
It is becoming increasingly difficult to satisfy the growing demands on spectrum with the conventional policy of fixed spectrum allocation. To overcome this problem, flexible and dynamic spectrum sharing methods that can significantly improve utilization of the spectrum have gained increasing interest recently. In this paper, resource allocation in(More)
