This paper proposes an omni-directional UWB antenna pattern in azimuth cut, low voltage standing wave ratio (VSWR), and easy to construct antenna for ultra wideband (UWB) systems. The designed antenna uses the multi circular blade configuration with a radiating element and on two different ground planes (square and circular ground shape). The multi-circular(More)
Somatic mutation of the AML1/RUNX1(RUNX1) gene is seen in acute myeloid leukemia (AML) M0 subtype and in AML transformed from myelodysplastic syndrome, but the impact of this gene mutation on survival in AML patients remains unclear. In this study, we sought to determine the clinical implications of RUNX1 mutations in 470 adult patients with de novo non-M3(More)
In this paper, the power gain improvements by stress contact etch stop layer (CESL) in a 65-nm nMOSFET were studied. Compared to the conventional nMOSFET, the device with CESL stress shows an extra 6% power gain enhancement for the increased stress in the channel region. This study also presents the polyharmonic distortion (PHD) model extraction by(More)
BACKGROUND Risk factors and outcomes in hematological patients who acquire invasive fungal sinusitis (IFS) are infrequently reported in the modern medical era. METHOD A retrospective study of hospitalized patients with hematological disease was conducted at National Taiwan University Hospital between January 1995 and December 2009. RESULTS Clinical(More)
BACKGROUND Diseases caused by Mycobacterium tuberculosis (TB) among adult patients with hematological malignancies have rarely been investigated. METHODS Adult patients with hematological malignancies at National Taiwan University Hospital between 1996 and 2009 were retrospectively reviewed. Patients with positive serology for HIV were excluded. TB(More)
The prognostic implication of immunophenotyping in acute myeloid leukemia (AML) patients with NPM1 mutation remains unclear. Ninety-four of 543 AML patients diagnosed with NPM1 mutation between 1987 and 2007 were studied. The expression of surface antigens on leukemic cells was evaluated with respect to clinical manifestations and outcomes. In order to(More)
Using an external tuner-based method, this paper demonstrates a complete millimeter-wave noise characterization and modeling up to 60 GHz for 65-nm MOSFETs for the first time. Due to channel length modulation, the channel noise continues to increase and remains the most important noise source in the millimeter-wave band. Our experimental results further(More)
Cereblon (CRBN) is essential for the anti-myeloma (MM) activity of immunomodulatory drugs (IMiDs), such as thalidomide and lenalidomide. However, the clinical implications of CRBN in MM patients are unclear. Using immunohistochemical (IHC) staining on paraffin-embedded bone marrow sections, the expression of CRBN protein in myeloma cells (MCs) was assessed(More)
BACKGROUND Hepatitis B virus (HBV) infections are common and associated with significant morbidity and mortality in cancer patients. However, the incidence and risk factors of HBV reactivation in patients with acute myeloid leukemia (AML) are rarely investigated. METHODS AML patients followed-up at the National Taiwan University Hospital between 2006 and(More)
