CXCR3, predominantly expressed on memory/activated T cells, is a receptor for both IFN-gamma-inducible protein 10/CXC chemokine ligand (CXCL)10 and monokine induced by IFN-gamma/CXCL9. It was reported that CXC chemokines IFN-gamma-inducible protein 10/CXCL10 and monokine induced by IFN-gamma/CXCL9 play a critical role in the allograft rejection. We report(More)
Today's medical students are faced with numerous learning needs. Continuously developing curricula have reduced time for basic science subjects such as anatomy. This study aimed to determine the students' views on the relevance of anatomy teaching, anatomical knowledge, and the effect these have on their career choices. A Likert scale questionnaire was(More)
To study the behaviour of a haemocyte when crossing a stenotic capillary, the immersed boundary-lattice Boltzmann method was used to establish a quantitative analysis model. The haemocyte was assumed to be spherical and to have an elastic cell membrane, which can be driven by blood flow to adopt a highly deformable character. In the stenotic capillary, the(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the dynamic microvascularization of focal salivary gland lesions by contrast-enhanced ultrasound (CEUS) and Color Doppler sonography. MATERIALS AND METHODS One hundred and sixty-eight patients with 183 major salivary gland lesions (mean age, 56 years; age range, 12-83 years) underwent gray-scale ultrasonography (US), Color Doppler(More)
In many bearing fault anomaly detection application, only positive (normal) samples are available for training purposes, other abnormal samples are difficult to be available. In order to solve these practical application problems, a novel model of one-class bearing fault detection based on SVDD and genetic algorithm is presented in this paper. The time(More)
The ultra-wideband (UWB) communication system provides high accurate localization due to the high multi-path resolution capacity. This paper applies an improved TDOA method to achieve UWB localization in the mobile environment. The ETDGE algorithm for ranging and the Fang & iterative algorithm for locating the moving node are approached by an optimum(More)
EMG prosthetic hands are being extensively studied to meet with the need of the millions of physical disabilities who have lost a hand or both hands. But for most of existing multi-degree of freedom EMG prosthetic hands, shortcomings such as low intensity, high price, et al., have blocked them from practical realization. Low-degree freedom EMG prosthetic(More)
There are millions of people who have lost a hand or both hands due to acquired amputation or congenital limb deficiencies. In order to improve their quality of life, electromyogram (EMG) prosthetic hands have been developed to compensate for some daily activities which a cosmetic glove cannot do. However, most EMG prosthetic hands pursue the ability of(More)
