BACKGROUND Although oxidative stress by accumulation of reactive oxygen species (ROS) in diabetes has become evident, it remains unclear what genes, involved in redox balance, would determine susceptibility for development of atherosclerosis in diabetes. This study evaluated the effect of genetic polymorphism of enzymes producing or responsible for reducing(More)
We propose a novel method for measuring the total radiated power (TRP) of small radio terminals, such as mobile phones, active RFID tags, and UWB devices, using a spheroidal cavity coupler in which an equipment under test (EUT) and a receiving antenna are displaced symmetrically around the focal points of the spheroid. The proposed method provides a(More)
In order to implement a level-1 trigger logic in an efficient manner from timing and space consumption point of view, application specific IC chips (ASIC) as well as FPGA ones are vitally used in the ATLAS muon end-cap level-1 trigger system. Various subsidiary logics are implemented in FPGAs while the core trigger logic is implemented in ASICs. These(More)
3 The purpose of this study was to investigate effects of the trunk forward lean during gait in elderly people on effectiveness use of mechanical energy (EI). The participants were five healthy elderly and ten healthy young people. The participants walked with the trunk leaning forward at their preferred speed. The gait motion was captured with a VICON(More)
