BACKGROUND To investigate the clinical features of Vogt-Koyanagi-Harada (VKH) disease presenting as acute angle closure glaucoma at onset. DESIGN Retrospective non-comparative case series. PARTICIPANTS Four hundred and eighty-six VKH patients seen from February 2001 to March 2010. METHODS The history and clinical findings of all patients were(More)
—We address the problem of performing simultaneous analog-to-digital (A/D) conversion on multi-channel signals using a single A/D converter (ADC). Assuming that each input has an unknown sparse representation in known dictionaries, we find that multi-channel information can be sampled with a single ADC. The proposed ADC architecture consists of a mixed(More)
OBJECTIVE Animals underwent combined general-epidural anesthesia (EGA) is reported to have better long-time outcome than general anesthesia (GA). This study aimed to make overall evaluation of the association between these two anesthetic techniques and prognosis of cancer patients undergoing surgery. METHODS Related databases such as PubMed and EMbase(More)
BACKGROUND To improve the therapeutic effects of gastric electrical stimulation (GES) for obesity, an animal experiment was conducted using a new type of stimulators. Proper parameters of GES were selected, and the impacts of GES on the food intake and gastric accommodation of canines were observed. METHODS Eight beagle dogs were operated on, and GES was(More)
The objective of this work is to investigate the relationship between endo-β-mannanase and leaf abscission, and response to wounding in soybean (Glycine max). An endo-β-mannanase gene GmMAN1 was cloned from the abscission zone in petiole explants, and was heterologously expressed in E. coli. Polyclonal antibodies were raised against the fusion protein. The(More)
—This paper presents a simple but high performance architecture for multi-channel analog-to-digital conversion. Based on compressive sensing, only one SAR ADC is needed to convert multi-channel sparse inputs, leading to significant analog power saving and hardware saving. Moreover, it helps avoid problems occurring in conventional multi-channel ADCs such as(More)
Novel CdTe/CdS/SiO2 core/multishell fluorescent composite nanoparticles were prepared by reverse microemulsion method in this paper. Water-soluble CdTe/CdS core/shell quantum dots (QDs) were synthesized with 3-mercaptopropionic acid as the stabilizers and thiourea as the sulphur source in aqueous solution. CdTe/CdS/SiO2 fluorescent nanoparticles were(More)
OBJECTIVE To examine the expression of microRNA-140 (miR-140) in osteoarthritis (OA) graded by X-ray diagnosis criteria of Kellgren and Lawrence and to provide a theoretical basis for further studing the role of miR-140 in OA development. METHODS Knee synovial fluid specimens were collected in 40 OA patients (the OA group), the OA group was divided into 4(More)
An ultrasensitive electrochemical aptasensor for the quantitative detection of kanamycin antibiotic was fabricated based on a novel signal amplification strategy. This aptasensor was developed using thionine functionalized graphene (GR-TH) and hierarchical nanoporous (HNP) PtCu alloy as biosensing substrates for the first time. HNP-PtCu alloy with(More)
This paper presents a novel noise shaping SAR architecture that is simple, robust and low power. It is fully passive and only needs minor modification to a conventional SAR ADC. Through a passive integrator, quantization noise, comparator noise and DAC noise are shaped with a noise transfer function of (1 0.75z-1). Unlike conventional multi-bit delta­ sigma(More)
