Extracts of female sex pheromone glands of the sand Salix carpenterworm moth, Holcocerus arenicola, a serious pest of desert thicket, were analyzed by gas chromatography (GC) and gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS). Based on comparison of retention times and mass spectra of synthetic standards, four compounds were identified as(More)
This paper proposes a fast fractal decoding algorithm for the reconstruction of the compressed image. Its continuation of the decoding process is judged according to an image convergence criterion. Speeding up convergence of the decoding algorithm is an important research branch of fractal coding. A selective decoding excludes the converged range blocks by(More)
OBJECTIVES T1 ventral renal hilar tumors (VRHTs) represent a very special type of tumor, for which laparoscopic partial nephrectomy (LPN) by the retroperitoneal approach is challenging. In this study, we report our surgical technique and Trifecta results. METHODS Renal rotation technique has been established for retroperitoneal laparoscopic partial(More)
An effective advertising strategy that can be used to help increase sales of products and reduce ad rate is to push special advertisement to selected potential customers. Applying intelligent agents to improve targeted advertising in electronic commerce is attractive. In this paper the methods and strategies of web advertising are introduced briefly. A(More)
Liver injury is a common adverse effect of atorvastatin. This study aimed to investigate atorvastatin-induced hepatotoxicity in diabetic rats induced by high-fat diet combined with streptozotocin. The results showed that 40 mg/kg atorvastatin was lethal to diabetic rats, whose mean survival time was 6.2 days. Severe liver injury also occurred in diabetic(More)
We read with great interest the report on a phase 3b randomised study by Schulman et al [1] on intermittent (IAD) versus continuous androgen deprivation (CAD) therapy among patients with relapsing or locally advanced prostate cancer (PCa). After 42-mo follow-up and taking time to prostate-specific antigen (PSA) progression, PSA progression-free survival,(More)
This paper purposes a novel matching algorithm for image encoding using adaptive classification scheme (ACS) in fractal image compression. It works based on standard deviation (STD) between range blocks and domain blocks. In this paper, there are two main work i) the threshold is set to be the ratio of the STD difference and made adaptive ii) we enhance(More)
Dear Editor, We have read the article BNovel SDHB and TMEM127 Mutations in Patients with Pheochromocytoma/Paraganglioma Syndrome^ with great interest [1]. In this article genes screening of SDHB, SDHC, SDHD, SDHAF2,MAX and TMEM127was performed in Hungarian patients with apparently sporadic PHEO/PGLs using the first generation sequencing technologySanger(More)
