BACKGROUND We previously reported that immune activation in the spinal dorsal horn contributes to pain induced by chronic pancreatitis (CP). Targeting immune response in the CNS may provide effective treatments for CP-induced pain. Recent findings demonstrate that resolvin D1 (RvD1) can potently dampen inflammatory pain. We hypothesized that intrathecal(More)
Reconfigurable robotic systems are made from a large number of independent modules that can be used to form various robot shapes. As a result, the robots have the capability to adopt optimized configurations to suit different tasks and environments. The object of this research work is to build a mobile robot for rough terrain. In this paper, we developed a(More)
Tuberculosis remains second only to HIV/AIDS as the leading cause of mortality worldwide due to a single infectious agent. Despite chemotherapy, the global tuberculosis epidemic has intensified because of HIV co-infection, the lack of an effective vaccine and the emergence of multi-drug-resistant bacteria. Alternative host-directed strategies could be(More)
Map building and pose tracking are central tasks ter an autttaewotls mobile robot's navigation. The intention of this paper is to introduce our research in mobile robot indoor map building and pose tracking using laser range finder. The line feature extraction methods, which include improved angle histograms algorithm and weighted least square fitting, are(More)
BACKGROUND MiRNA-21 was previously reported to be up-regulated in many kinds of cancer. In the present study, we want to investigate the potential role of miRNA-21 in non-small cell lung cancer. MATERIALS AND METHODS Expression of miRNA-21 was detected in 60 non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) samples and adjacent histologically normal tissue using(More)
Fiber-optic dispersion and its effect on optical transmission system are analyzed. The most commonly used dispersion compensation fiber (DCF) technology is studied in this article. Three schemes (pre-compensation, post-compensation, mix-compensation of dispersion compensation) of dispersion compensation with DCF are proposed. The simulation model of the WDM(More)
Abnormalities in amygdala activity have been implicated in adolescents and older adults with major depressive disorder (MDD), but few studies have focused on young adults with early-onset MDD. In this study, we measured amygdala activity in 27 young adults with early-onset MDD and 25 healthy controls (HC) using functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI)(More)
Internet of things (IOT) has caused great concern since its inception and it is considered as the second wave of the information industry after computer, internet and mobile communication network. Because IOT contains variety kinds of device, it becomes a typical heterogeneous network and it is very difficult to design a communication layer which satisfy(More)
An automatic alarm device for traffic accidents is introduced in this paper. It can automatically detect a traffic accident, search for the spot and then send the basic information to first aid center within two seconds covering geographical coordinates, the time and circumstances in which a traffic accident takes place. By means of satellite navigation(More)
The invasion and metastasis of malignant tumor cells lead to normal tissue destruction and are major prognostic factors for many malignant cancers. Long non-coding RNA (LncRNA) is associated with occurrence, development and prognoses of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), but its mechanisms of action involved in tumor invasion and metastasis are not clear.(More)
