This study was aimed at the elucidation of the pathogenesis of glucotoxicity, i.e. the mechanism whereby hyperglycaemia damages pancreatic beta cells. The identification of pathways in the process may help identify targets for beta cell-protective therapy. Carbohydrate response element-binding protein (ChREBP), a transcription factor that regulates the(More)
We present a capacity constrained network flow optimization approach for finding evacuation paths, flows and schedules so as to maximize the total evacuees for short notice evacuation planning (SNEP). Due to dynamic nature of this optimization problem, we first construct a time-expanded network that expands the static network over the planning horizon for(More)
In this paper, we describe a dynamic network optimization-based solution framework that effectively integrates the management of complex information with traffic strategies and logistics support. This framework is composed of a transportation management function, a logistics support and capacity refinement function, and a validation function. The(More)
BACKGROUND Pulmonary embolism (PE) represents the third most frequent cause of postoperative death in the United States. In recent years, there has been an increasing demand among plastic surgeons for patient safety guidelines that specifically address the complications of deep venous thrombosis (DVT) and PE in relation to aesthetic surgery. OBJECTIVE In(More)
Due to legislative requirements, environmental concerns, and market image, the disposition of end-of-life e-scrap is attracting tremendous attention in many parts of the world today. Effective management of returned used product flows can have a great impact on the profitability and resulting financial viability of associated e-scrap reverse production(More)
Supply chain management in the petroleum industry contains various challenges, specifically in the logistics area, that are not present in most other industries. These logistical challenges are a major influence on the cost of oil and its derivatives. However, opportunities for cost savings in logistics still do exist. Giant oil and petrochemical companies(More)
