Capacity to repair UV-induced DNA damage was studied by use of host cell reactivation assay in T lymphocytes isolated from 86 cases and 87 controls (aged 44-68 years) who were participants in a population-based case-control study of basal cell (BCC) or squamous cell (SCC) carcinoma of the skin in Geraldton, Western Australia. Lymphocytes were cultured and(More)
The inducible response of the tumour suppressor gene p53 has been examined following exposure to DNA-damaging agents in Ataxia telangiectasia (AT) cell lines, an autosomal recessive disorder with multiple clinical and biological abnormalities including sensitivity to ionising radiation. The p53 induction was significantly delayed and reduced in the 8 AT(More)
In this article, we present some results on the application of fuzzy methods to the segmentation of multivariate medical images. We report the results obtained by using the Fuzzy C-mean (FCM) algorithm by J. Bezdek and the method by K. Rose, E. Gurewitz and G. Fox (RGF) based on the Maximum Entropy Principle (MEP) that avoids any a priori assumption on the(More)
The DNA-dependent protein kinase (DNA-PK), whose catalytic subunit shows structural similarities to the Ataxia telangiectasia (AT) gene product (ATM), has also been implicated in the p53-mediated signal transduction pathway that activates the cellular response to DNA damage produced by ionizing radiation. DNA-PK activity however was not found to be related(More)
Exposure to sunlight has been clearly associated with non-melanocytic skin cancer, however individual susceptibility differs considerably. Ethnic origin and pigmentary characteristics are generally accepted as risk factors. Another important defense mechanism is the ability to repair DNA photoproducts. In the inherited disorder xeroderma pigmentosum the(More)
The use of centralized signal processing for dense urban mobile networks is gaining interest both in research and in industry. Gathering most of the base station functionalities in a processing pool would enable capacity sharing and the implementation of advanced techniques such as coordinated multi-point. Nevertheless, this puts stringent requirements on(More)
The vast growth in mobile data traffic with its increasing capacity demands necessitates investigating future solutions to cope with these challenges. Network Virtualisation is considered one potential solution to simplify the current wireless networks. Recently efforts have been made to show the performance gains of different resource allocation schemes in(More)
Cloud Radio Access Network (C-RAN) has attracted a worldwide attention in both academia and industry. This network architecture re-forming has been considered as a potential solution to meet the increasing capacity demands for future mobile data traffic. In addition, Network Virtualisation is a promising technique for efficient resource utilisation. This(More)
