Uteroplacental insufficiency and subsequent intrauterine growth retardation (IUGR) increase the risk of type 2 diabetes in humans and rats. Unsuppressed endogenous hepatic glucose production is a common component of the insulin resistance associated with type 2 diabetes. Peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor-gamma coactivator-1 (PGC-1) mediates hepatic… (More)
Acinetobacter baumannii is an important cause of multidrug-resistant hospital acquired infections in the world. Here, we investigate the presence of NDM-1 and other carbapenemases among carbapenem-resistant A. baumannii isolated between August 2010 and December 2014 from three large hospitals in Hanoi, Vietnam. We identified 23/582 isolates (4 %) (11 from… (More)
Spherical radial basis functions are used to define approximate solutions to strongly elliptic pseudodifferential equations on the unit sphere. These equations arise from geodesy. The approximate solutions are found by the Galerkin and collocation methods. A salient feature of the paper is a unified theory for error analysis of both approximation methods.
