Communication technology now makes it possible to support high data transmission rates at relatively low cost. In particular, optical fiber can be used as the medium in local area networks with data rates in the range of 100 megabits per second. Unfortunately, local area network topologies and communication protocols that work well with lower speed media(More)
Currently there is no control for real-time traffic sources in IP networks. This is a serious problem because real-time traffic can not only congest the network but can also cause unfairness and starvation of TCP traffic. In this paper, a new rate control scheme, RCS, is introduced for real-time traffic in networks with high bandwidth-delay products and(More)
This paper describes an experiment to prototype a new way of conducting science by applying networking and distributed computing technologies to an Earth Science application. A combination of satellite, wireless, and terrestrial networking provided geologists at a remote field site with interactive access to supercomputer facilities at two NASA centers,(More)
Germanium compounds have been shown to be effective in preventing the formation of advanced glycation end-products and for reversible solubilization of glycated proteins. As protein glycation has been proposed to play a role in lens opacification, we initiated studies to evaluate the effects of 2-carboxyethyl germanium sesquioxide (germanium compound 132 or(More)
Our previously reported investigations showed that cataracts could be induced in fetal lenses through the maternal feeding of galactose during pregnancy. We also reported that the lens opacity present at birth reverses completely by 30 days of age if there is no further post-natal exposure to galactose. This investigation was designed to investigate if an(More)
Development of the Next Generation Internet requires the development of revolutionary applications as well as advances in networking technologies. This paper presents experiences in using the NREN testbed to prototype a col-laborative medical-imaging application. Technological requirements for this application include high-bandwidth reliable multicast and(More)
Our previous studies have shown that the aldose reductase inhibitor (ARI), sorbinil, prevents galactose-induced alterations and cataracts in rat lenses. We have now used sorbinil as well as another ARI, Eisai compound E-0722, to determine their potency in inhibiting aldose reductase- and galactose-induced alterations in lens morphology and Na+-K+-ATPase(More)
