BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to estimate the prevalence and distribution of type 2 diabetes and to determine the status of type 2 diabetes awareness, treatment, and control in Xinjiang, China. Our data came from the Cardiovascular Risk Survey (CRS) study designed to investigate the prevalence and risk factors for cardiovascular diseases in Xinjiang(More)
OBJECTIVE Valvular calcification occurs via ongoing endothelial injury associated with inflammation. IL-10 is an anti-inflammatory cytokine and 75% of the variation in IL-10 production is genetically determined. However, the relationship between genetic polymorphisms of IL-10 and valvular calcification has not been studied. The objective of this study was(More)
paper proposes an analog-digital mix-mode low power IC architecture inside the wireless endoscopic capsule, which assures that the capsule can implement the diagnoses of whole human digestive tract and provides real time endoscopic image monitoring. A new low complexity and low power digital IC design inside the wireless endoscopic capsule is discussed in(More)
BACKGROUND Serum amyloid A protein (SAA) is not only an inflammatory factor, but also an apolipoprotein that can replace apolipoprotein A1 (apoA1) as the major apolipoprotein of high-density lipoprotein (HDL), which has been linked to atherosclerosis. However, the relationship between genetic polymorphisms of SAA and the intima-media thickness (IMT) of the(More)
The aim of this study was to survey on the presence and distribution of rotavirus in sewage treatment plants (STPs) and surface water samples in Beijing. Also, the rotavirus removal efficacies of wastewater treatment processes in three STPs were discussed. SiO2 was used to concentrate rotavirus particles from environmental water samples. A reverse(More)
Today's high performance embedded computing applications are posing significant challenges for processing throughout. Traditionally, such applications have been realized on application specific integrated circuits (ASICs) and/or digital signal processors (DSP). However, ASICs' advantage in performance and power often could not justify the fast increasing(More)
State-of-the-art endoscopy systems require electronics allowing for real-time, bidirectional data transfer. Proposed are 2.4-GHz low-power transceiver analog front-end circuits for bidirectional high data rate wireless telemetry in medical endoscopy applications. The prototype integrates a low-IF receiver analog front-end [low noise amplifier (LNA), double(More)
This paper proposes a micro-system design for the wireless endoscopic capsule, which assures that the capsule has small size(less than 25mm<sup>*</sup>10mm), can implement the diagnoses of whole human digestive tract and provide real time endoscopic image monitoring. The designs of two core hardware parts inside the capsule, low power analog-digital(More)
This paper presents a new approach for near-lossless and lossless image compression in digital colorful image sensors with Bayer color filter arrays (CFAs). In this approach, the captured CFA raw data is firstly transformed from quincunx shape to rectangular shape and then smoothed by a low-pass filter. Lastly, the filtered data are compressed directly(More)
