Knowledge of the velocity of a mobile terminal is useful for a variety of radio resource management functions being contemplated for future wireless communications systems. Currently, the radial component of velocity of a mobile terminal can be inferred from estimating the maximum Doppler fading bandwidth. Unfortunately, the practicality of current methods(More)
In this randomised, double-blind, comparator-controlled, multicentre study conducted in China, 142 hospitalised patients aged 18-75 years with pneumonia (n=80) or complicated skin and soft-tissue infection (cSSTI) (n=62) due to suspected or known Gram-positive pathogens were randomised (1:1) to receive either linezolid 600mg (n=71) or vancomycin 1g in(More)
As an important tumor suppressor, programmed cell death 4 (PDCD4) influences transcription and translation of multiple genes, and modulates different signal transduction pathways. However, the upstream regulation of this gene is largely unknown. In this study, we found that microRNA-182 (miRNA-182, miR-182) was upregulated, whereas PDCD4 was downregulated(More)
— We present an asynchronous and reliable multicast framework for a scalable multimedia system. An unequal error protection (UEP) transmission scheme employing a layered packetization structure and rateless codes is proposed. With this scheme, asynchronous data reception and guaranteed quality-of-service (QoS) can be achieved at the same time. Furthermore,(More)
The HMGIC gene, which codes a protein that acts as an architectural transcription factor, is frequently rearranged in a variety of benign or locally aggressive mesenchymal tumors. In tumors of smooth muscle differentiation, only uterine leiomyoma and lipoleiomyoma are known to be associated with the altered HMGIC. We investigated molecular and genetic(More)
Methylation levels of long interspersed nucleotide elements (LINE-1) are representative of genome-wide methylation status and play an important role in maintaining genomic stability and gene expression. To derive insight into the association between genome-wide methylation status and tetralogy of fallot (TOF), we compared the methylation status of LINE-1(More)
BACKGROUND It is considered that the pathogenesis is closely related to an excessive production of pro-inflammatory cytokines caused by bacterial toxins and an imbalance between pro-inflammatory and anti-inflammatory mediators. MATERIALS AND METHODS This work investigates the effect of electro-acupuncturing (EA), at Zusanli point (ST36) on plasma cytokine(More)
BACKGROUND 3'-Sulfo-Le(a) is known to be the potent ligand of E-selectin which is important in cell adhesion and migration. Yet the significance of serum 3'-sulfo-Le(a) has not been explored and reported. METHODS Serum 3'-sulfo-Le(a) was analyzed by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay. SPSS software was used for statistics analysis. Cell adhesion to HUVEC(More)
An efficiently siRNA transporting nanocarrier still remains to be developed. In this study, utilizing the dual stimulus of acid tumor extracellular environment and redox effect of glutathione in the cytosol, a new siRNA transporting system combining triple effects of folate targeting, acid sensitive polymer micelles, and bio-reducible disulfide bond linked(More)
Experimental and epidemiological studies suggest that serum levels of trace elements may be associated with breast cancer risk. We compared serum levels of 15 trace elements between breast cancer patients and normal controls from Shandong, China, for the first time to assess whether serum levels of trace elements were associated with breast cancer risk.(More)
