Prior studies had suggested that triptolide, a diterpene triepoxide isolated from a Chinese medicinal plant, might be an attractive candidate as a post-testicular male contraceptive agent. Despite the promise that triptolide would not affect testis function, nagging concerns remained that a delayed onset of testicular effect might exist. The objectives of(More)
Programmed cell death occurs spontaneously during spermatogenesis and can be induced in a cell- and stage-specific manner by mild testicular hyperthermia. Studies using transgenic mice suggest the involvement of Bcl-2 proteins in regulating germ cell apoptosis. To delineate further the pathways involved, we examined the temporal changes in proapoptotic Bax(More)
Autonomous vehicle navigation with standard IMU and differential GPS has been widely used for aviation and military applications. Our research interesting is focused on using some low-cost off-the-shelf sensors, such as strap-down IMU, inexpensive single GPS receiver. In this paper, we present an autonomous vehicle navigation method by integrating the(More)
Structured reporting systems allow health care providers to record observations using predetermined data elements and formats. We present a generalized language, based on the Standard Generalized Markup Language (SGML), for platform-independent structured reporting. DRML (Data-entry and Report Markup Language) specifies hierarchically organized concepts to(More)
To determine what percentage of inner-city children with asthma would lose asthma control when taken off asthma controllers, a retrospective analysis was performed on inner-city asthmatic children who achieved asthma control in an asthma specific disease management program. Once disease control was achieved patients had stepwise reduction of asthma(More)
Current national and international asthma guidelines recommend treatment of children with asthma towards achieving and maintaining asthma control. These guidelines provide more stringent recommendations to increase therapy for patients with uncontrolled asthma in order to reduce asthma-related morbidity and mortality. Newer combination agents such as(More)

Synthetic nucleic acids have shown great potential in the treatment of various diseases. Nevertheless, the selective delivery to a target tissue has proved challenging. The coupling of nucleic acids to targeting peptides, proteins, and antibodies has been explored as an approach for their selective tissue delivery. Nevertheless, the preparation of(More)
Background. Proximity to heavy traffic has been linked to increased asthma severity. However, it is unknown whether exposure to heavy traffic is associated with the ability to maintain asthma control. Objectives. This study examines whether exposure to heavy traffic is associated with the ability to maintain asthma control in inner-city children. Methods.(More)
