UNLABELLED Coxsackievirus B3 (CVB3) is trophic for cardiac tissue and is a major causative agent for viral myocarditis, where local viral replication in the heart may lead to heart failure or even death. Recent studies show that inserting microRNA target sequences into the genomes of certain viruses can eradicate these viruses within local host tissues that(More)
OBJECTIVES To identify potential novel biomarkers for juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA), we evaluated the correlation between plasma expression levels of specific miRNAs and disease characteristics of JIA. METHODS Differentially expressed miRNAs in JIA plasma were identified by microarray analysis. Five candidate plasma miRNAs with differential(More)
By vehicle presence detection and movement analysis on the monitored region based on video processing technology, a real-time robust detection method of vehicle queue and dissipation is proposed in this paper. With a duplex flexible window fused with the Haar feature based AdaBoost cascade classifiers, the method can efficiently track the position changes(More)
Coxsackievirus B3 (CVB3) is known to induce both autophagy and apoptosis, but whether a relationship exists between these processes upon infection, and whether and how they influence the viral life cycle are currently unknown. We observed here that while autophagosome formation increased in CVB3-infected HeLa cells at the early stage of infection, it(More)
OBJECTIVE To identify a homogeneous entity for antinuclear antibody (ANA)-positive patients suffering from juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA). METHODS All of the clinical features were recorded retrospectively. ANA positivity was defined as more than twice positive results at a titer of > 1:100. The correlation between ANA positivity and clinical(More)
In a previous study, the number of autophagosomes increased after coxsackievirus B3 (CVB3) infection. However, the exact mechanism by which CVB3 regulates the number of autophagosomes is unclear. Earlier studies have found that infection with CVB3 activates extracellular signal-regulated kinase (ERK). ERK is essential for CVB3 replication and can increase(More)
In this paper, we develop an efficient technique for fully automatic recovery of accurate 3D face shape from videos captured by a low cost camera. The method is designed to work with a short video containing a face rotating from frontal view to profile view. The whole approach consists of three components. First, automatic initialization is performed in the(More)
Driver's fatigue detection has been realized based on driver's mouth geometrical features. It can give some information when driver is fatigue. For better speed and reliability, a new method which was based on combined Adaboost algorithm and particle filter was applied. Then the mouth verification was applied according to prior knowledge. Driver's state was(More)
This case report demonstrates the feasibility of laparoscopic and fertility-preserving approach in nongestational choriocarcinoma of the ovary (NGCO). Pure NGCO is a rare malignant condition. In the last decade, only 14 cases have been reported in the literature. The use of laparoscopy and fertility-preserving procedures in nonepithelial ovarian(More)
