Results On the T2-T3 continuum Chinese: the perceptual boundary is distinct and there is a significant tendency of the interaction between tone contexts and the identification of T-2 and T-3 (FT2 (1, 7) = 6.44, p<0.05; FT3 (1, 7) =6.10, p<0.05). To make it more concise, the perceptual boundary between T2 and T3 emerges later along the continuum when the(More)
The Virtual Secretary 2 project ViSe2 focuses on the construction of a multi-agent cooperation system. As a research v ehicle, we have c hosen to build intelligent agents that perform secretarial tasks for their users either by themselves or via cooperation. An individual ViSe2 agent has limited knowledge and problem-solving capabilities. To act better for(More)
The Virtual Secretary (ViSe) is a kind of intelligent agent that could assist its user in major secretarial work. Users give the orders of what to do, while agents figure out how to do and carry out the tasks. This paper presents the ViSe agents in two aspects: (1) construct individual agent on three intelligence levels: knowledge-base level, learning level(More)
High-density lipoprotein (HDL) stimulates the growth of many types of cells, including those of breast cancer. High levels of HDL are associated with an increased risk of breast cancer development. A scavenger receptor of the B class (SR-BI)/human homolog of SR-BI, CD36, and LIMPII analogous-1 (CLA-1) facilitates the cellular uptake of cholesterol from HDL(More)
The thymus contains many apoptotic cells that arise from the process of positive and negative selection. Both thymic macrophages and thymic nurse cells/nursing thymic epithelial cells (nursing TECs), non-professional phagocytes, recognize and ingest apoptotic cells without inflammation or tissue damage. Previously we reported that human scavenger receptor(More)
Many studies have reported that selenium (Se) has a close relationship with autoimmune thyroiditis (AIT). The therapeutic effect of Se supplementation in AIT treatment remains unclear. The objective of the present study was to determine the efficacy of Se supplementation for the treatment of AIT. A structured literature search was undertaken to identify all(More)
Objective. GD with ATD-induced hepatic injury or leukopenia occurs frequently in clinical practice. The purpose of the present study was to observe the clinical effect of lithium carbonate on hyperthyroidism in patients with GD with hepatic injury or leukopenia. Methods. Fifty-one patients with GD with hepatic injury or leukopenia participated in the study.(More)

BACKGROUND Nowadays, many cytotoxic anticancer drugs exhibit low solubility and poor tumor selectivity, which means that the drug formulation is very important. For example, in the case of paclitaxel (PTX), Cremophor EL(®) (BASF, Ludwigshafen, Germany) needs to be used as a solubilizer in its clinical formulation (Taxol(®), Bristol-Myers Squibb, New York,(More)
