We have investigated the role of human endogenous retroviruses in multiple sclerosis by analyzing the DNA of patients and controls in 4 cohorts for associations between multiple sclerosis and polymorphisms near viral restriction genes or near endogenous retroviral loci with one or more intact or almost-intact genes. We found that SNPs in the gene TRIM5 were(More)
Substantial evidence suggests that phenolic extracts of Castanea mollissima spiny burs (CMPE) increase pancreatic cell viability after STZ (streptozotocin) treatment as a result of their antioxidant properties. In the present study, the hypoglycemic and hypolipidemic activities of CMPE were studied in normal and STZ-induced diabetic rats CMPE were orally(More)
An individual-tree diameter growth model was developed for Cunninghamia lanceolata in Fujian province, southeast China. Data were obtained from 72 plantation-grown China-fir trees in 24 single-species plots. Ordinary non-linear least squares regression was used to choose the best base model from among 5 theoretical growth equations; selection criteria were(More)
A detailed study of reference frequency spurious spectrum components in edge-combining delay-locked loop (DLL)-based frequency multipliers is presented in this paper. The reference spur components caused by the delay mismatch between delay cells in the voltage controlled delay line (VCDL), as well as the spur components due to phase detector locking error(More)
UNLABELLED Antisera raised against the avian hepatitis E virus (HEV) capsid protein are cross-reactive with human and swine HEV capsid proteins. In this study, two monoclonal antibodies (MAbs) against the avian HEV capsid protein, namely, 3E8 and 1B5, were shown to cross-react with the swine HEV capsid protein. The motifs involved in binding both MAbs were(More)
Several studies have demonstrated the association between elevated admission glycaemia (AG) and the occurrence of some arrhythmias such as atrial fibrillation, ventricular tachycardia, and ventricular fibrillation after myocardial infarction. However, the impact of elevated AG on the high grade atrioventricular block (AVB) occurrence after ST-segment(More)
Development of integrated hand-foot function is the inevitable choice for the practical application of multi-legged robots. In this paper, a new type of robot which has the structure of multi-legged walking robot based on hand-foot-integration is introduced. Kinematics relations between walking and grasping states of robot are described. The inverse(More)
The CURRENT-OASIS 7 (Clopidogrel and Aspirin Optimal Dose Usage to Reduce Recurrent Events-Seventh Organization to Assess Strategies in Ischemic Symptoms) trial showed that a 7-day 150-mg maintenance dose (MD) clopidogrel could reduce cardiovascular events in subgroup patients who underwent percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) compared with the 75(More)
The study is directed to the use of non-metallic powders obtained from comminuted recycled paper-based printed circuit boards (PCBs) as an additive to polyvinyl chloride (PVC) substrate. The physical properties of the non-metallic PCB (NMPCB) powders were measured, and the morphological, mechanical and thermal properties of the NMPCB/PVC composite material(More)
