A mobile wireless sensor network owes its name to the presence of mobile sink or sensor nodes within the network. The advantages of mobile WSN over static WSN are better energy efficiency, improved coverage, enhanced target tracking and superior channel capacity. In this paper we present and discuss hierarchical multi-tiered architecture for mobile wireless(More)
Several studies have suggested that genetic factors may affect the susceptibility of a population to tuberculosis, and it has been found that P2X7 is linked to an increased risk for tuberculosis in some West African, Southeast Asian, North American, and North European populations. To explore the potential role of P2X7 in the susceptibility to tuberculosis(More)
BACKGROUND Tuberculosis (TB) is still a big threat to human health, especially in children. However, an isolation of Mycobacterium tuberculosis culture from pediatric cases remains a challenge. In order to provide some scientific basis for children TB control, we investigated the genotyping and drug resistance characteristics of M. tuberculosis isolates(More)
Atopic dermatitis (AD) is a chronic inflammatory pruritic skin disease in which the pathogenic mechanism is complicated and not completely understood. Reports on the role of regulated cells in AD have recently evolved to regulate B cells, which may play a role in allergic inflammation as well. In the present study, we examined the frequency and regulatory(More)
Usually, sensor data needs to be disseminated from the source sensors to data collectors (e.g., sink nodes), making those spatially distributed sensor data available for applications to access. The widespread and ubiquitous nature of mobile devices, e.g., PDAs and cell phones around the world, makes them attractive to be used as mobile data collectors(More)
In P2P network, there are a considerable proportion of free riders, which contribute nothing or little to the P2P system but obtain resources from the system. In order to address this problem, we present a utility-based auction cooperation incentive mechanism in the P2P network. Our approach is that before communicating with destination peer, the source(More)
In the paper, a new range-boundary aware mobility-assisted localization(RAML) scheme is presented to make mobile sink identify the location of sensor nodes which are deployed in a random mode within a certain geographical area. Not like other localization techniques, the presented localization scheme works without any additional hardware and achieves better(More)
Based on a new range-boundary aware mobility assisted localization, we proposed a more energy efficient localization scheme which is called Time-adaptive range-boundary aware mobility-assisted localization (TRAML) to decrease the number of the transmitted packets from the point view of both the sink and the nodes. Noticed that the sink will send the beacon(More)
Background: Although Mycoplasma pneumoniae (MP) is a common cause of community-acquired pneumonia (CAP) in children, the currently used diagnostic methods are not optimal. Proteomics is increasingly being used to study the biomarkers of infectious diseases. Methods: Label-free quantitative proteomics and liquid chromatography-mass/mass spectrometry were(More)
