State-of-the-art deep neural networks (DNNs) have hundreds of millions of connections and are both computationally and memory intensive, making them difficult to deploy on embedded systems with limited hardware resources and power budgets. While custom hardware helps the computation, fetching weights from DRAM is two orders of magnitude more expensive than(More)
Star-shaped polymer micelles have good stability against dilution with water, showing promising application in drug delivery. In this work, biodegradable micelles made from star-shaped poly(ε-caprolactone)/poly(ethylene glycol) (PCL/PEG) copolymer were prepared and used to deliver doxorubicin (Dox) in vitro and in vivo. First, an acrylated monomethoxy poly(More)
Crk-like (CRKL) is an adapter protein that has crucial roles in multiple biological processes, including cell proliferation, adhesion, and migration. However, the expression pattern of CRKL protein and its clinical significance in human breast cancers have not been well characterized. In this study, expression of CRKL was evaluated in 108 human invasive(More)
CARMA3 was recently reported to be overexpressed in several cancers and associated with malignant behavior of cancer cells. However, the expression pattern and biological roles of CARMA3 in breast cancer have not been reported. In the present study, we found that CARMA3 was overexpressed in 41.9 % of breast cancer specimens. Significant association was(More)
Luteolin (Lu) is one of the flavonoids with anticancer activity, but its poor water solubility limits its use clinically. In this work, we used monomethoxy poly(ethylene glycol)-poly(e-caprolactone) (MPEG-PCL) micelles to encapsulate Lu by a self-assembly method, creating a water-soluble Lu/MPEG-PCL micelle. These micelles had a mean particle size of 38.6 ±(More)
The potential use of allogeneic islet transplantation in curing type 1 diabetes mellitus has been adequately demonstrated, but its large-scale application is limited by the short supply of donor islets and the need for sustained and heavy immunosuppressive therapy. Encapsulation of pig islets was therefore suggested with a view to providing a possible(More)
Gastric cancers are one of the most common gastrointestinal tumors with proclivity to metastasis. Hypoxia is an important feature in solid tumor microenvironment; accumulating evidence suggests that chronic and repetitive exposure to hypoxia and reoxygenation seems to provide an advantage to tumor growth. However, mechanisms of intermittent hypoxia(More)
In the present study, the effects of erythropoietin (EPO) on preventing adult neurons from apoptosis (introduced by brachial plexus avulsion) were examined, and the mechanism was analyzed. Fifty injury rat models were established in this study by using micro-hemostat forceps to pull out brachial plexus root from the intervertebral foramen in supine(More)
Peritoneal dissemination is the most frequent metastatic pattern of advanced gastric cancer and the main cause of death in gastric cancer patients. Transforming growth factor-beta1 (TGF- ß1), one of the most potent fibrotic stimuli for human peritoneal mesothelial cells, has been shown to play an important role in this process. In this study, we(More)
