A Modified FKCL (MFKCL) algorithm for automatic segmentation of MR brain images is proposed in this paper This algorithm is an extension of traditional fuzzy Kohonen's competitive learning algorithm. In our method, a factor that can estimate the effect of the neighbor pixels to the central pixel is introduced into the objective function of the standard FKCL(More)
OBJECTIVE The discovery of carbon monoxide (CO) and hydrogen sulfide (H2S) as pathogenic signaling molecules in airway-related diseases has led to significant insights into the pathophysiologic mechanisms underlying the development of allergic rhinitis (AR). The potential crosstalk between CO and H2S signaling pathways in AR has not been adequately(More)
BACKGROUND Recent research indicates that CD133 are expressed in several kinds of stem cells, among which, its high expression in laryngeal carcinoma has caused wide concern. To further explore efficaciously targeting drugs to laryngeal carcinoma stem cells (CSCs), we transplanted a solid tumor from CSCs into abdominal subcutaneous tissue of nude mice, and(More)
The segmentation of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) with intensity heterogeneity is a challenging problem that has received an enormous amount of attention lately. In this paper, we propose a simple and effective segmentation method called local-based fuzzy clustering (LBFC) for MR brain images that corrupted by intensity heterogeneity. Firstly, a(More)
A case of vagus nerve invasion with disseminated herpes zoster was reported. Clinical manifestation of disseminated herpes zoster and vagus nerve injury. relevant imaging examination and laboratory examination can help to establish a preliminary diagnosis. Anti-virus, anti-infection and symptomatic treatment had been performed and showed good clinical(More)
It is well considered that reactive oxygen species (ROS) plays a prominent causative role in the development of allergic rhinitis (AR), and eosinophils cells as important allergic inflammatory cells contribute to elevating oxidative stress. Hydrogen, emerging as a novel antioxidant, has been proven effective in selectively reducing ROS in animals models of(More)
Three polysaccharides (water-soluble (WSP), alkali-soluble (ASP) and insoluble (IMP)) from boat-fruited sterculia seeds were obtained using different extraction methods. Moisture, ash, protein and total carbohydrate content of WSP, ASP and IMP were analyzed. WSP was rich in glucose, rhamnose, arabinose and galactose while small amount of xylose was also(More)
