An ultrasound of the neck (SSH-140 A, Toshiba, Japan) was performed followed by CT scan (Somatom CR, Siemens, Erlangen). On sonography we noticed a hypoechoic linear area extending from the neck into the superior mediastinum. It was present between the internal jugular vein and the carotid vessels in the neck and was posteromedial to the sternocleidomastoid(More)
Despite intense efforts to increase vaccine coverage, measles virus (MV) still causes significant morbidity and mortality in the world, sometimes as the result of severe, chronic, lethal disease. In an effort to develop therapies to supplement immunization strategies, a number of 5'-nor carbocyclic adenosine analogues were evaluated for anti-MV activity in(More)
In the recent years, location based services (LBS) on mobile devices have become very popular. With the growing number of smartphone users, the demand for services that can provide recommendation of places based on user location and interest has increased rapidly. The performance of such LBS depends on a number of factors, including how well the places are(More)
Location-based services gained much popularity through providing users with helpful information with respect to their current location. As a recent trend, virtual location-based services consider webpages or sites associated as 'virtual locations' that online users can visit. The presence of links between virtual locations and the corresponding physical(More)
Location based services and Geospatial web applications have become popular in recent years due to wide adoption of mobile devices. Search and recommendation of places or Points of Interests (PoIs) are prominent services available on them. The effectiveness of these services crucially depends on the availability of tags that are descriptive of places. The(More)
A convenient preparation of (1'R,2'S,3'R,4'S)-1-(2',3',4'-trihydroxycyclopent-1'-yl)-1H-uracil (carbocyclic 5'-noruridine, 1) is described in 2 steps from the palladium complex of (+)-(1R,4S)-4-hydroxy-2-cyclopenten-1-yl acetate (3) and the sodium salt of uracil (2). Compound 1 was sought as a previously unknown member of the series of carbocyclic 5'-nor(More)
Large amount of time series data generated by sensors and Web users is great source of contextual information. Detecting outliers with unusually high values in time series data is crucial for inferring about any events in the real world. In this work, we describe an infinite Poisson mixture model to detect events by identifying outliers in time series of(More)
A 60-year-old man with complaints of diarrhea and a previous history of colonic carcinoma which was operated several years back underwent a multidetector computed tomographic (MDCT) scan of the abdomen which revealed a subtotal colectomy status with preservation of the sigmoid colon and the rectum. A side-to-side anastomosis between the ileum and the(More)
