In this paper, based on approved traffic flow distributions, we develop analytical expressions for Vehicular Ad Hoc Network (VANET) connectivity with respect to the number of reachable neighbors. Node mobility is accounted for by assuming probabilistic disturbance events that instantaneously disrupt the connection between nodes. Next, the lower bound of(More)
—We study how to achieve optimal network capacity in the most energy-efficient manner over a general large-scale wireless network, say, a multi-hop multi-radio multi-channel (MR-MC) network. We develop a multi-objective optimization framework for computing the resource allocation that leads to optimal network capacity with minimal energy consumption. Our(More)
—Vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) communication networks, as one of the core components in connected vehicle systems, have been granted many promising applications to address traffic mobility, safety and sustainability. However, only a limited amount of work has been completed to understand the fundamental properties of information propagation in such systems,(More)

Vemurafenib and dabrafenib selectively inhibit the v-Raf murine sarcoma viral oncogene homolog B1 (BRAF) kinase, resulting in high response rates and increased survival in melanoma. Approximately 22% of individuals treated with vemurafenib develop cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma (cSCC) during therapy. The prevailing explanation for this is drug-induced(More)
The purpose of the present study was to study the impacts of eplerenone (EPL), an antagonist of mineralocorticoid receptors (MR), on atrial fibrosis in a mouse model with selective fibrosis in the atrium, and to explore the possible mechanisms. Using mutant TGF-β1 transgenic (Tx) mice, we first demonstrated that EPL inhibited atrial fibrosis specifically(More)
The pharmacokinetics of small interfering RNAs (siRNAs) is a pivotal issue for siRNA-based drug development. In this study, we comprehensively investigated the behavior of siRNAs in vivo in various tissues and demonstrated that intravenously-injected naked siRNA accumulated remarkably in the submandibular gland, bulbourethral gland, and pancreas, with a(More)
To explore the effect of placenta-derived mesenchymal stem cells on scar formation as well as the underlying mechanism. The isolated placenta-derived mesenchymal stem cells from mice were distributed in the wounded areas of scalded mouse models, attenuated inflammatory responses and decreased the deposition of collagens, thus performing a beneficial effect(More)

BRAF inhibitor (BRAFi) therapy is associated with the induction of neoplasia, most commonly cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma (cuSCC). This toxicity is explained in part by "paradoxical ERK activation," or the hyperactivation of ERK signaling by BRAFi in BRAF wild-type cells. However, the rate of cuSCC induction varies widely among BRAFi. To explore this(More)
This study’s goal was to assess the diagnostic value of the USPIO-(ultra-small superparamagnetic iron oxide) enhanced magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in detection of vulnerable atherosclerotic plaques in abdominal aorta in experimental atherosclerosis. Thirty New Zealand rabbits were randomly divided into two groups, Group A and Group B. Each group(More)
