Assigning textures and materials within 3D scenes is a tedious and labor-intensive task. In this paper, we present <i>Magic Decorator</i>, a system that automatically generates material suggestions for 3D indoor scenes. To achieve this goal, we introduce <i>local material rules</i>, which describe typical material patterns for a small group of objects or(More)
Nicardipine is a dihydropyridine-type Ca2+ channel blocker with a powerful antihypertensive activity and a unique cerebrovascular profile. Recent studies have examined nicardipine for the treatment of patients with aneurysmal subarachnoid haemorrhage (SAH), but have shown inconsistent results. In the current study, a meta-analysis was performed to assess(More)
Our meta-analysis aggregated existing results from relevant studies to comprehensively investigate the correlations between genetic polymorphisms in dihydropyrimidine dehydrogenase (DPYD) gene and 5-fluorouracil (5-FU) toxicities in patients with colorectal cancer (CRC). The MEDLINE (1966∼2013), the Cochrane Library Database (Issue 12, 2013), EMBASE(More)
After spinal cord injury (SCI), the rapidly upregulated chondroitin sulfate proteoglycans (CSPGs), the prominent chemical constituents and main repulsive factors of the glial scar, play an important role in the extremely limited ability to regenerate in adult mammals. Although many methods to overcome the inhibition have been tested, no successful method(More)
The aim of this study was to identify the correlations of a common polymorphism (rs6774494 A > G) in the EVI-1 gene targeted by micro-RNA (miRNA)-206/133b with the pathogenesis of breast cancer (BC). A total of 196 unrelated ethnic Han Chinese women diagnosed with primary BC were consecutively recruited and 200 healthy controls were randomly selected from(More)
BACKGROUND Aberrant expression of defensins is implicated in the pathogenesis of digestive diseases. However, the contribution of specific defensins and the influence of their genetic polymorphisms on the progression of digestive diseases remain controversial. In the present meta-analysis, we investigated the association between DEFB1 SNPs and the(More)
