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)
This 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(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)
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)
In a previous study, we reported a novel single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) 698C>T (P233L) in the gene, C5L2. This gene has been demonstrated to encode a functional receptor of acylation-stimulating protein (ASP), a G-protein-coupled receptor (GPCR), that has been shown to influence insulin secretion in cultured pancreatic islet cells in vitro and is a(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)
OBJECTIVE Serum uric acid (SUA) is a cardiovascular risk marker associated with inflammation. The serum amyloid A protein (SAA) is an inflammatory factor and is associated with cardiovascular disease (CVD). However, the relationship between genetic polymorphisms of SAA and SUA levels has not been studied. The objective of this study was to investigate the(More)
This paper presents a wireless power transfer system for a motion-free capsule endoscopy inspection. Conventionally, a wireless power transmitter in a specifically designed jacket has to be connected to a strong power source with a long cable. To avoid the power cable and allow patients to walk freely in a room, this paper proposes a two-hop wireless power(More)
Deterministic public key encryption (D-PKE) provides an alternative to randomized public key encryption in various scenarios (e.g. search on encrypted data) where the latter exhibits inherent drawbacks. In CRYPTO’11, Brakerski and Segev formalized a framework for studying the security of deterministic public key encryption schemes with respect to auxiliary(More)
By analyzing the features unfit for parallel computation and low power implementation, a VLSI architecture of JPEG-LS encoder for lossless image compression is proposed in this paper. It functionally consists of four parts: Mode decision module, clock controller, three linear parallel pipelines, and a two-tier data packer. Computations are organized in a(More)
