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)
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)
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)
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)
Bis-(-)-nor-meptazinols (bis-(-)-nor-MEPs) 5 were designed and synthesized by connecting two (-)-nor-MEP monomers with alkylene linkers of different lengths via the secondary amino groups. Their acetylcholinesterase (AChE) inhibitory activities were more greatly influenced by the length of the alkylene chain than butyrylcholinesterase (BChE) inhibition. The(More)
Recent genome-wide association studies (GWAS) have reported multiple risk loci associated with risk of colorectal cancer (CRC), some of which are involved in the transforming growth factor beta (TGFβ) signaling pathway. We systematically examined associations of common genetic variations in the TGFβ signaling pathway and environmental factors with CRC risk(More)
