Wireless mesh networks (WMNs) consist of mesh routers and mesh clients, where mesh routers have minimal mobility and form the backbone of WMNs. They provide network access for both mesh and conventional clients. The integration of WMNs with other networks such as the Internet, cellular, IEEE 802.11, IEEE 802.15, IEEE 802.16, sensor networks, etc., can be(More)
The latest high-throughput sequencing technologies show that there are more than 1000 types of microbiota in the human gut. These microbes are not only important to maintain human health, but also closely related to the occurrence and development of various diseases. With the development of transplantation technologies, allogeneic transplantation has become(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS New-onset diabetes after transplantation (NODAT) is a serious complication of liver transplantation (LT). The present study aimed to investigate the risk factors of NODAT by a national survey using the China Liver Transplant Registry database. PATIENTS A total of 10 204 non-pre-existing diabetic patients undergone primary LT between(More)
In previous studies, we confirmed that mitofusin-2 (Mfn2) induced apoptosis in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) cells. However, the exact molecular mechanism remained unclear. Mfn2 expressed lower in tumour tissues, compared with adjacent non-cancer tissues. Furthermore, Mfn2 immunostaining was very weak in HCC tissue (P < 0.05) and was significantly(More)
Wireless mesh networks (WMNs) have become a critical part of Internet protocol (IP) networks, in particular in the last or first mile. They can be applied to many scenarios such as home networking, community networking, enterprise networking, and so on. On the other hand, voice over IP (VoIP) provides an attractive approach to delivering voice traffic over(More)
OBJECTS To observe the morphological features of the lumbosacral neural tube defects (NTDs) induced by all-trans retinoic acid (atRA) and to explore the pathogenesis of these defects. METHODS Rat embryos with lumbosacral NTDs were obtained by treating pregnant rats with administration of atRA. Rat embryos were obtained by cesarean. Fetuses were sectioned(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Recurrence of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) after liver transplantation (LT) remains a major cause of post-LT death. However, currently there is still lacking the markers to reliably predict recurrence. This study was undertaken to evaluate the association between three polymorphisms (C1236T, G2677A/T, C3435T) of Multidrug(More)
BACKGROUND/PURPOSE The aim of this study was to investigate long-term outcome and quality of life after the Swenson operation for rectosigmoid Hirschsprung's Disease (HD). METHODS Forty-five patients who underwent the Swenson procedure for HD underwent follow-up for 8 to 16 years. Long-term outcome and quality of life were assessed by interviews and(More)
