BACKGROUND Lactic acid bacteria (LAB) are important in the food industry for the production of fermented food products and in human health as commensals in the gut. However, the phylogenetic relationships among LAB species remain under intensive debate owing to disagreements among different data sets. RESULTS We performed a phylogenetic analysis of LAB(More)
BACKGROUND The ongoing rise in the prevalence of hypertension in children and adolescents is considered to be accompanied with the epidemic of childhood overweight and obesity. In this study, we established a large scale cross-sectional study in Shanghai, China, which presented a new evidence for the correlation of hypertension prevalence with overweight(More)
In cognitive networks, cooperative spectrum sensing can increase detection performance significantly. In this paper, square-law combining technique is chosen as cooperative diversity scheme in energy detecting when the wireless environment is modeled as Nakagami channel. Moreover, we use double-threshold algorithm to reduce the effect caused by noise(More)
Elucidating gut microbiota among gallstone patients as well as the complex bacterial colonization of cholesterol gallstones may help in both the prediction and subsequent lowered risk of cholelithiasis. To this end, we studied the composition of bacterial communities of gut, bile, and gallstones from 29 gallstone patients as well as the gut of 38 normal(More)
BACKGROUND There has been no effective method to monitor the changes of blood coagulation after thromboprophylaxis for elective arthroplasty patients. The objective of this study is to assess the coagulation status of patients undergoing arthroplasty with thromboelastograph (TEG). METHODS Ninety patients undergoing primary elective unilateral arthroplasty(More)
—Transportation mode detection with personal devices has been investigated for over ten years due to its importance in monitoring ones' activities, understanding human mobility, and assisting traffic management. However, two main limitations are still preventing it from large-scale deployments: high power consumption, and the lack of high-volume and diverse(More)
