Due to the widespread software piracy and virus attacks,significant efforts have been made to improve security forcomputer systems. For stand-alone computers, a key observationis that other than the processor, any component isvulnerable to security attacks. Recently, an execution onlymemory (XOM) architecture has been proposed to supportcopy and tamper(More)
With the increasing concern of the security on high performance multiprocessor enterprise servers, more and more effort is being invested into defending against various kinds of attacks. This paper proposes a security enhancement model called SENSS, that allows programs to run securely on a symmetric shared memory multiprocessor (SMP) environment. In SENSS,(More)

While an increasing amount of evidence demonstrates the homeostatic functions of the cardiac oxytocin (OT) system, less is known about the role of this hormone in the injured heart. The current study examined the effect of OT infusion on cell apoptosis, expression of proliferating cell nuclear antigen (PCNA) and inflammation in the acute and subacute phases(More)
Modern GPUs have shown promising results in accelerating computation intensive and numerical workloads with limited dynamic data sharing. However, many real-world applications manifest ample amount of data sharing among concurrently executing threads. Often data sharing requires mutual exclusion mechanism to ensure data integrity in multithreaded(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the efficacy and safety of trigonella foenum-graecum L. total saponins (TFGs) in combination with sulfonylureas (SU) in the treatment of patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) not well controlled by SU alone. METHODS Sixty-nine T2DM patients whose blood glucose levels were not well controlled by oral sulfonylureas hypoglycemic(More)
Vorapaxar (SCH 530348), a potent oral thrombin protease-activated receptor 1 antagonist, is being developed as an antiplatelet agent for patients with established vascular disease. The objective of this study was to identify the human liver cytochrome P450 (P450) enzyme(s) responsible for the metabolism of SCH 530348. Human liver microsomes metabolized SCH(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the clinical efficacy and safety of the newer antiepileptic drugs (AEDs), namely, Eslicarbazepine (ESL), Retigabine/Ezogabine (RTG), Carisbamate (CAR), Lacosamide (LAC), Brivaracetam (BRI) or Perampanel (PER) as adjunctive therapy for adults with partial-onset seizures (POS). METHODS A systematic review of Randomized(More)
Malonyl-CoA is a key intermediate involved in lipid synthesis and lipid oxidation. Here, we report on a novel method for the quantification of malonyl-CoA and seven other short-chain acyl-CoAs in various rat and mouse tissues using ion-pairing reversed-phase HPLC/MS. This method is capable of measuring malonyl-CoA, free coenzyme A (CoASH), acetyl-CoA,(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to evaluate the long-term cost-utility of liraglutide versus glimepiride as add-on therapy to metformin in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM), based on the results of clinical trial conducted in Asian population. METHODS The validated UKPDS Outcomes Model was used to project life expectancy, quality adjusted(More)
