BACKGROUND AND STUDY AIMS Ascitic fluid infections (AFIs) are the frequent complications of advanced liver disease. Bacterial translocation is considered a key step in the pathogenesis of gut-derived bacterial infections; mainly spontaneous bacterial peritonitis (SBP) in cirrhotic patients. Bacterial DNA (bactDNA) in ascitic fluid and serum has been(More)
Where ~j is a coefficient of the transform, Qstep is a quantization step size and Zij is a quantized coefficient. A total of 52 values of Qstep are supported by H.264 standard and these are indexed by a quantization parameter, QP. The values of Qstep corresponding to each OP are shown in Table 1. Qstep doubles every increment of 6 in QP. Qstep increases by(More)
