Consider the situation in which subjects arrive sequentially for a treatment and in which there are two distinct ways in which the treatment may fail. Treatments are given at different dosages, and the probabilities of the two failure types vary with dose. Assuming that decreasing the chances of one failure type increases the chances of the other, we say(More)
Hyperoxic acute lung injury (HALI) is a clinical syndrome as a result of prolonged supplement of high concentrations of oxygen. Previous studies have shown hyperbaric oxygen preconditioning (HBO-PC) had a protective effect on oxidative injury. In the present study, we investigated the effect of HBO-PC on HALI in rats. The results demonstrated that HBO-PC(More)
The ubiquity of modern mobile devices with GPS modules and Internet connectivity such as 3G/4G techniques have resulted in rapid development of Location-Based Services (LBSs). However, users enjoy the convenience provided by the untrusted LBS server at the cost of their privacy. To protect user's sensitive information against adversaries with side(More)
In this study, 226 samples of seven types of domestic vegetables collected from several vegetable-growing regions in Hebei Province of China were tested for the presence of 38 different agricultural pesticides using a gas chromatograph equipped with electron capture and nitrogen phosphorus detectors. The aim of this study was to investigate the distribution(More)
PURPOSE/AIM Hyperoxic acute lung injury (HALI) is a clinical syndrome as a result of prolonged supplement of high concentrations of oxygen. As yet, no specific treatment is available for HALI. The present study aims to investigate the effects of edaravone on hyperoxia-induced oxidative injury and the underlying mechanism. MATERIALS AND METHODS We treated(More)
A dsDNA/PANI/CTS/GCE biosensor was constructed by using the biocompatible chitosan (CTS) and the polyaniline (PANI) with excellent electric catalytic properties and large specific surface areas. The electrochemical behavior of hydroquinone on biosensor and its DNA-damaging mechanisms were investigated. Results showed that the redox peak current was(More)
The popularity of big data has resulted in the pro-liferation of applications and services with a lot of conveniences in social networks. Unfortunately, the diverse data sets contain users' privacy-sensitive information, which brings about privacy concerns potentially if the information is released or shared to the service provider. The existing practical(More)
Timely and accurate diagnosis of cancer is crucial to cancer treatment. However, serological diagnosis of cancer still faces great challenge because the conventional methodology based on the enzyme-linked immune sorbent assay (ELISA) is costly, time-consuming, and complicated, involving multiple steps. Herein, lactose-functionalized gold nanorods (Lac-GNRs)(More)
Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) technology has the potential to simulate normal or pathologic aortic blood flow changes of mechanical properties and flow field, thereby helping researchers understand and reveal the occurrence, development and prognosis of aortic disease. In aortic diseases research, the initial conditions of CFD numerical simulation has(More)
