Over the last couple of year, the expansion of Web services has grown drastically. In practical applications, many uncertain attributes of Web service change as the complexity of the Web evolves and influence the QoS (quality of service). However, existing matchmaking models and algorithms do not take the uncertain attributes into account, which leads to(More)
Direct microbial conversion of wheat straw into lipid by a cellulolytic fungus of Aspergillus oryzae A-4 in solid-state fermentation (SSF) was investigated. In submerged fermentation, A. oryzae A-4 accumulated lipid to 15-18.15% of biomass when pure cellulose was utilized as the sole substrate. In SSF of the wheat straw and bran mixture, A. oryzae A-4(More)
BACKGROUND Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is a strong predictor of mortality after percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) or coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG), but the relative efficacy of the 2 revascularization strategies in this context remains unknown. METHODS AND RESULTS The 1,069 patients with CKD undergoing revascularization for multivessel(More)
OBJECTIVES This study examines whether patient resistance to clopidogrel is associated with long-term thrombotic events after elective coronary drug-eluting stent (DES) implantation. METHODS We prospectively enrolled 386 patients with stable angina who received elective percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) with DES. Before the procedure, platelet(More)
BACKGROUND This small study has determined the effect of vitamin C on myocardial reperfusion in patients undergoing elective percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). This study was to explore whether antioxidant vitamin C infusion before the procedure is able to affect the incidence of periprocedural myocardial injury (PMI) in patients undergoing PCI. (More)
Cervical cancer is a multifactorial disease involving a complex interplay between genetic and environmental factors. An important role of HIF-1α in cervical cancer carcinogenesis has been studied by multiple researches. We hypothesized that there is a possible association between HIF-1α gene polymorphisms and the risk of cervical cancer in Chinese women. In(More)
BACKGROUND The effect of obesity on restenosis in patients who undergo percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) has not been fully understood. We undertook a meta-analysis for the effects of body mass index (BMI) on repeat revascularization in these patients. METHODS A systematic search was conducted for published studies in OVID/MEDLINE, EMBASE, and the(More)
BACKGROUND Although great efforts have been paid on identification of genetic predisposition in the inherited retinal disease (IRD), genetic causes of a large proportion of patients remain a mystery. This dilemma makes us attempt to speculate that genetic components other than coding genes might be an additional pool predisposing IRD. In this study, we aim(More)
