Bug reproduction is critically important for diagnosing a production-run failure. Unfortunately, reproducing a concurrency bug on multi-processors (e.g., multi-core) is challenging. Previous techniques either incur large overhead or require new non-trivial hardware extensions. This paper proposes a novel technique called PRES (probabilistic replay via(More)
Undifferentiated embryonal sarcoma of the liver is a rare and aggressive tumor in adults, with an unfavorable prognosis. We present a 33-year-old female patient who was admitted with fatigue, weight loss and right upper abdominal pain. Magnetic resonance imaging of the liver revealed a bulky malignant mass with necrotic and cystic center, which nearly(More)
The search for efficient and predictive methods to describe the protein folding process at the all-atom level remains an important grand-computational challenge. The development of multi-teraflop architectures, such as the IBM BlueGene used in this study, has been motivated in part by the large computational requirements of such studies. Here we report the(More)

The University of Florida has a well documented history of developing mission capable Micro Air Vehicles (MAVs). UF has established a successful philosophy that focuses on aircraft reliability and durability. This process incorporates four criteria that apply to both the design of the airframe and selection of components: durability and reliability,(More)
Dependence of charge transmission through several experimentally studied DNA duplexes on their lowest-frequency acoustic modes, combined with the molecular dynamics in picosecond characteristic time range, has been studied. Based on this analysis we were able to identify the specific acoustic modes responsible for the noticeable increase in DNA charge(More)

OBJECTIVES To evaluate the motor input from the spinal accessory nerve (SAN) and the branches of the cervical plexus in an intraoperative motor nerve conduction study measuring motor action potentials by direct stimulation of the exposed nerve during neck dissection. METHODS The entire length of the SAN and the contributions from the upper cervical plexus(More)
PURPOSE There is no standard targeted therapy for the treatment of triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC). Therefore, its management heavily depends on adjuvant chemotherapy. Using core needle biopsy, this study evaluated the histological factors of TNBC predicting the response to chemotherapy. METHODS One hundred forty-three TNBC patients who received(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES The purpose of this study is to identify the effectiveness of intratympanic (IT) steroids when used as an initial therapy in sudden sensorineural hearing loss (SSNHL), and when it is used as a salvage therapy in a refractory SSNHL. SUBJECTS AND METHODS This retrospective study included 122 patients with SSNHL. First, patients(More)
