PURPOSE Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) has been utilized for critically ill patients, such as those with life-threatening respiratory failure or post-cardiotomy cardiogenic shock. This study compares the predictive value of Acute Physiology, Age, and Chronic Health Evaluation II (APACHE II), Sequential Organ Failure Assessment (SOFA), and Organ(More)
Overexpression of Shc adaptor proteins is associated with mitogenesis, carcinogenesis and metastasis. Multiple copies in T-cell malignancy 1 (MCT-1) oncoprotein promotes cell proliferation, survival and tumorigenic effects. Our current data show that MCT-1 is a novel regulator of Shc-Ras-MEK-ERK signaling and MCT-1 is significantly co-activated with Shc(More)
Background construction is the base of object detection and tracking for the machine vision system. Traditional background modeling methods often require complicated computations and are sensitive to illumination changes and shadow interference. In this paper, we propose a block-based background modeling method, which fully utilizes the color and texture(More)
—In order to conform to the real world systems such as distribution systems and supply chain management system, we assume the capacity of each arc in the quickest path problem is stochastic (multi-state). In this study, we propose a simple algorithm to evaluate the probability that d units of data can be sent from the source node to the sink node through(More)
Microarray data analysis is a major line of research in bioinformatics. A significant trend in bioinformatics is identifying genes or gene groups that differentiate diseased tissues. Classification is necessary to make microarray data useful for application in medicine, and in related research such as disease diagnosis. Classification models have been(More)
Due to the development of technology, electronics have become intertwined with our daily lives. Because of our reliance on such products, they need to be user-friendly, thus, improving current technology products is critical. One example of an electronic product with an opportunity for improvement is the projector. In many places, projectors have become an(More)
