In this paper, we propose a new active queue management algorithm, called Average Rate Early Detection (ARED). An ARED gateway measures/uses the average packet enqueue rate as a congestion indicator, and judiciously signals end hosts of incipient congestion, with the objective of reducing packet loss ratio and improving link utilization. We show (via(More)
BACKGROUND Epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) has been reported to downregulate E-cadherin (E-cad); however, whether the downregulation of E-cad has any effect on EGFR expression has not been elucidated. Our previous studies have found an inverse correlation between EGFR and E-cad expression in tissue specimens of squamous cell carcinoma of the head(More)
BACKGROUND The molecular basis and characteristics of familial non-medullary thyroid cancer are poorly understood. In this study, we performed microRNA (miRNA) profiling of familial and sporadic papillary thyroid cancer tumor samples. METHODOLOGY/PRINCIPAL FINDINGS Genome wide miRNA profiling of sporadic and familial papillary thyroid cancer was(More)
The recent availability of human mobility traces has driven a new wave of research on human movement with straightforward applications in wireless/cellular network. In this paper we revisit the human mobility problem with new assumptions. We believe that human movement is not independent of the surrounding locations, <i>i.e.</i> the points of interest that(More)
BACKGROUND Several members of the zinc finger protein family have been recently shown to have a role in cancer initiation and progression. Zinc finger protein 367 (ZNF367) is a member of the zinc finger protein family and is expressed in embryonic or fetal erythroid tissue but is absent in normal adult tissue. METHODOLOGY/PRINCIPAL FINDINGS We show that(More)
According to the classical communication theories, known as Gate keeping and Selective Exposure, individuals tend to have selective behavior when they disseminate and receive information based on their psychological preferences. Selective behavior related to these two theories have been broadly studied separately. While, thanks to the advent of Online(More)
