This paper proposes an adaptive fuzzy robust control method for SISO nonlinear systems with nonlinear uncertainties, unmodeled dynamics and dynamic disturbances. Fuzzy logic systems are used to approximate the nonlinear uncertainties, with no prior knowledge of their bounds. Based on the modeled nonlinear uncertainties using fuzzy logic systems, a stable(More)
In this paper, a direct adaptive fuzzy robust control approach is proposed for single input and single output (SISO) strict-feedback nonlinear systems with nonlinear uncertainties, unmodeled dynamics and dynamical disturbances. No prior knowledge of the boundary of the nonlinear uncertainties is required. Fuzzy logic systems are used to approximate the(More)
High-mobility group box 1 (HMGB1) functions as a proinflammatory cytokine and is one of the most intriguing molecules in inflammatory disorders and cancers. Notably, HMGB1 is a potential therapeutic target and novel biomarker in related diseases. However, the diagnostic value of HMGB1 for benign and malignant asbestos-related diseases (ARDs) remains(More)
Chronic infection of Mycoplasma hyorhinis (M. hyorhinis) has been postulated to be associated with several types of cancer, but its effect on patients' survival and host factors mediating its infection remain unclear. Herein, we demonstrated that M. hyorhinis p37 protein expression in gastric cancer tissues predicts poor survival and associates with(More)
BACKGROUND NIMA-related kinase 2 (NEK2), a serine/threonine kinase, is located in the centrosome and is a member of cell cycle regulation related protein kinase (CCRK) family. Aberrant expression of NEK2 is linked with carcinogenesis and progression of various tumors. OBJECTIVE To investigate the expression level of NEK2 and its relationship with(More)
Tubulocystic renal cell carcinoma (TCRCC) is a rare, recently characterized RCC subtype with distinctive clinicopathologic and genetic characterizations as well as typical behaviors in an indolent fashion. However, sporadic case reports in the literature have indicated that TCRCC with sarcomatoid differentiation or poorly differentiated (PD) foci could(More)
Gene therapy using oncolytic adenoviruses is a novel approach for human cancer therapeutics. The current study aimed to investigate whether the combined use of an adenovirus expressing tumor necrosis factor‑related apoptosis‑inducing ligand (TRAIL) and second mitochondria‑derived activator of caspase (Smac) upon caspase activation (ZD55‑TRAIL‑IETD‑Smac) and(More)
Myxopapillary ependymoma (MPE) is a rare variant of ependymoma that is most commonly located in the cauda equina and filum terminale. We present a case of 23-year-old man diagnosed with MPE in the fourth ventricle and sacral canal area with extensive disseminated lesions along the cerebrospinal ventricular system. Additionally, a molecular pathological(More)
