The blocking problem naturally arises in transportation systems as multiple vehicles with different itineraries share available resources. In this paper, we investigate the impact of the blocking problem to the waiting time at the intersections of transportation systems. We assume that different vehicles, depending on their Internet connection capabilities,(More)
BACKGROUND We documented previously the entity of trichloroethylene (TCE) hypersensitivity syndrome (THS) in occupational workers. OBJECTIVES To identify the culprit causative compound, determine the type of hypersensitivity of THS, and establish a screening test for subjects at risk of THS. METHODS TCE and its main metabolites chloral hydrate (CH),(More)
—We investigate the performance of First-In, First-Out (FIFO) queues over wireless networks. We characterize the stability region of a general scenario where an arbitrary number of FIFO queues, which are served by a wireless medium, are shared by an arbitrary number of flows. In general, the stability region of this system is non-convex. Thus, we develop a(More)

We consider a transportation system of heterogeneously connected vehicles, where not all vehicles are able to communicate. Heterogeneous connectivity in transportation systems is coupled to practical constraints such that (i) not all vehicles may be equipped with devices having communication interfaces, (ii) some vehicles may not prefer to communicate due(More)
As a maternal and developmental toxicant, cadmium (Cd) possesses weak penetrability through the placental barrier. However, the underlying mechanism remains unclear. To gain insight into the protein molecules associated with Cd toxicity in placenta and explore their roles in Cd transportation, a reproductive animal experiment was carried out using(More)
