Monocyte-macrophage series have an important role in host surveillance against cancer. The cytotoxic/cytostatic activity of macrophages is, to a great extent, attributed to the up-regulation of inducible nitric oxide synthase (iNOS) and production of nitric oxide (NO). Here, in 28 patients with primary lung cancer and 20 control subjects, we measured the(More)
—Image inpainting technique is that repairs damaged area or remove areas in an image. In order to deal with this kind of problems, not only a robust image inpainting algorithm should be used, technique of structure generation is also needs to adopt in inpainting procedure. In this paper, we extend an exemplar-based image inpainting method by incorporating(More)
Recent interesting issues in video inpainting are defect removal and object removal. We take one more step to replace the removed objects in a video sequence by implanting objects from another video. Before implant, we improve an exemplar-based image inpainting algorithm by using a new patch matching strategy which incorporates edge properties. The data(More)

Inpainting algorithm is used to fill missing information in an image. This paper proposes modified fast and enhanced exemplar based inpainting algorithm for solving unknown row filling problem. This technique is modification in updating criteria in fast and enhanced exemplar based inpainting algorithm. Our experimental results show that proposed scheme(More)
This video program presents several video inpainting/implant mechanisms implemented under different types of videos with diversified temporal continuations. We use an improved image inpainting method to remove foreground objects. Another set of objects are implanted into the inpainted video. Detailed algorithms are presented in a paper in the 2006 ACM(More)
In this paper, we propose a new inpainting algorithm based on color segmentation to preserve the structure of image. We use color segmentation to construct contour lines, and estimate the slope of contour lines and how they should extend. We also use the advantage of Bezier curves that fit the curves to the real world. The algorithm also fit to more general(More)
We evaluated the application of nucleic acid amplification (NAA) in liquid cultures for the early detection of Mycobacterium tuberculosis. The Cobas TaqMan MTB test, IS6110 real-time PCR, and hsp65 PCR-restriction fragment length polymorphism (RFLP) analysis were used to detect BACTEC MGIT 960 (MGIT) cultures on days 3, 5, 7, and 14. The procedure was(More)
