Diabetic retinopathy (DR) is a hyperglycemia-induced ischemic disorder characterized by microvascular dysfunction and neovascularization. It is a leading cause of blindness in many countries, yet efficient drugs are limited now for prevention and treatment of DR. Low molecular weight fucoidan (LMWF), extract from brown algae, has been shown to possess(More)
Endothelial dysfunction, characterized by impairment of endothelial nitric oxide synthase (eNOS) and nitric oxide (NO) bioavailability, has been implicated in diabetic cardiovascular pathogenesis. In this study, low-molecular-weight fucoidan (LMWF), which has multiple biological activities including anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidative properties, was(More)
Diabetic cardiomyopathy (DCM) is characterized by cardiac dysfunction and cardiomyocyte apoptosis. Oxidative stress is suggested to be the major contributor to the development of DCM. This study was intended to evaluate the protective effect of low molecular weight fucoidan (LMWF) against cardiac dysfunction in diabetic rats. Type 2 diabetic goto-kakizaki(More)
Small objects detection is a challenging task in computer vision due to its limited resolution and information. In order to solve this problem, the majority of existing methods sacrifice speed for improvement in accuracy. In this paper, we aim to detect small objects at a fast speed, using the best object detector Single Shot Multibox Detector (SSD) with(More)
In aviation, Maintenance, Repair, and Overhaul (MRO) refers to the actions of fixing an air craft when it becomes out of order, or performing routine actions to keep the air craft in working order. MRO services are carried out strictly under the instruction of corresponding MRO task cards, which detail all the information including work content, procedure,(More)
