The aim of this study was to assess the treatment results and toxicity profiles of post-operative conventional radiotherapy (Conv-RT) and intensity-modulated radiotherapy (IMRT) for stage III and IV oral cavity cancer. During the period from April 2002 to December 2005, a total of 49 patients with stage III and IV squamous cell carcinoma of the oral cavity(More)
Flavonoids have been demonstrated to exert health benefits in humans. We investigated whether the flavonoid baicalein would inhibit the adhesion, migration, invasion, and growth of human hepatoma cell lines, and we also investigated its mechanism of action. The separate effects of baicalein and baicalin on the viability of HA22T/VGH and SK-Hep1 cells were(More)
Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) expresses an immediate-early protein, Rta, to activate the transcription of EBV lytic genes and the lytic cycle. This work identifies Ubc9 and PIAS1 as binding partners of Rta in a yeast two-hybrid screen. These bindings are verified by glutathione S-transferase pull-down assay, coimmunoprecipitation, and confocal microscopy. The(More)
Dysfunctional gap junctions caused by GJB2 (CX26) and GJB6 (CX30) mutations are implicated in nearly half of nonsyndromic hearing loss cases. A recent study identified a heterozygous mutation, c.119C>T (p.A40V), in the GJB6 gene of patients with nonsyndromic hearing loss. However, the functional role of the mutation in hearing loss remains unclear. In this(More)
In this paper, we propose a novel key management scheme based on genetic algorithms to fulfill the requirement of power control, memory usage, and computation security in a hierarchical wireless sensor network. We divide our scheme into three parts: the sink node, the header nodes and the sensor nodes. The sink node first uses genetic algorithms to generate(More)
The aim of the study was to investigate the novel endoscopic findings in nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) under narrow-band imaging (NBI) and to determine the reliability of screening NPC by NBI. A total of 79 adults underwent nasopharyngeal biopsy. We proposed five distinctly different findings that need to be examined by NBI: Type I: brownish spots, Type(More)
PURPOSE Tumor eradication by chemoradiotherapy for pharyngeal cancer has not been particularly successful. Targeting epithelial growth factor receptor (EGFR) could be a potential treatment strategy providing additional benefits, but only a subset of these tumors gives a clinically significant response to EGFR inhibitors. The aim has been to identify the(More)
The crucial role of gap junctions, which are composed of connexin (CX) protein, in auditory functions has been confirmed by numerous studies. In this study, we investigate the prevalence and phenotype/genotype correlation of connexin (CX) gene family variants in a cohort of children with nonsyndromic hearing loss (HL). A total of 253 unrelated children with(More)
This study develops a high-performance stand-alone photovoltaic (PV) generation system. To make the PV generation system more flexible and expandable, the backstage power circuit is composed of a high step-up converter and a pulsewidthmodulation (PWM) inverter. In the dc–dc power conversion, the high step-up converter is introduced to improve the conversion(More)
