— This paper presents a novel whole body motion estimation method by fitting a deformable articulated model of the human body into the 3D reconstructed volume obtained from multiple video streams. The advantage of the proposed method is two fold: (1) combination of a robust estimator and ICP algorithm with Kd-tree search in pose and normal space make it(More)
Intestinal epithelial cell (IEC) apoptosis induced by hypoxia compromise intestinal epithelium barrier function. Both Akt and Hsp90 have cytoprotective function. However, the specific role of Akt and Hsp90β in IEC apoptosis induced by hypoxia has not been explored. We confirmed that hypoxia-induced apoptosis was reduced by Hsp90β overexpression but enhanced(More)
Mortality remains one of the most important end-point quality control parameters to evaluate a burn care system. We retrospectively reviewed the characteristics and multiple organ dysfunction syndrome (MODS) patterns of burn deaths in our center from January 2003 to December 2009. The mortality rate during this time period was 2.3%. Fifty-six patients died,(More)
