Building on the ideas of Stirling (J R Soc Interface, 4(15), 707–719, 2007) and Rafols and Meyer (Scientometrics, 82(2), 263–287, 2010), we borrow models of genetic distance based on gene diversity and propose a general conceptual framework to investigate the diversity within and among systems and the similarity between systems. This framework can be used(More)
Using a collection of papers gathered from the Web of Science, and defining disciplines by the JCR classification, this paper compares the disciplinary structure of the G7 countries (representing high S&T level countries) and the BRIC countries (representing fast breaking countries in S&T) by using bibliometric methods. It discusses the similarity and the(More)
Interleukin 12 (IL-12) is a cytokine that has been reported to exhibit potent tumoricidal effects in animal tumor models. A combined approach using Paclitaxel and platinum-based doublet chemotherapy is the most commonly used backbone regimen for treating lung cancer. Despite numerous studies regarding the anti-tumor effects of IL-12 and the widespread use(More)
NK cells are a major component of the antitumour immune response that limits tumour progression. However, it has been reported that tumour-infiltrating NK (TINK) cells from patients with non-small-cell lung carcinoma (NSCLC) exhibit profound defects in degranulation and IFN-γ production. In support of this notion, we report a novel mechanism associated with(More)
The present meta-analysis was intended to explore the relationship between the X-ray repair cross complementing 1 (XRCC1) polymorphisms (Arg194Trp, Arg280His and Arg399Gln) and cervical cancer risk. Several electronic databases were searched systematically and bibliographies of relevant papers were identified carefully. Then, a meta-analysis was performed(More)
People’s actions are always accompanied with multiple motives. How to estimate the role of the pro-environment motivation under the interference of other motivations will help us to better interpret human environmental behaviors. On the basis of classical motivation theories and travel mode choice research backgrounds, the concepts of pro-environmental and(More)
This paper investigates the problem of modeling Internet images and associated text for cross-modal retrieval tasks such as text-to-image search, and image-to-text search. Canonical correlation analysis (CCA), a classic two view approach for mapping text and image into a common latent space, does not make use of the semantic information of text and image(More)
Diabetic nephropathy (DN) is one of the most common and lethal microvascular complications of diabetes. This study aimed to explore whether coenzymeQ10 (CoQ10) as an antioxidant combined with ultrasound-targeted microbubble destruction (UTMD) could reverse the progress of early diabetic nephropathy (DN). CoQ10 has great potential to treat early DN. However,(More)
Internet video is currently one of the most popular Internet services, accounting for more than 50% of the overall Internet traffic. Various access patterns of users worldwide contribute to increasing complex scenarios of Internet video. Under the circumstances, there emerges a valuable yet challenging topic that industry and academia keep focusing on: how(More)
