• We would like to thank Jenny Wu and Yun Xie for very valuable research assistance. We would also like to thank the feedback and help received from and the staff and membership of Business Networks, Carl Ragsdale of NADA, and Tony Noland of NCM. Any inaccuracies of fact or interpretation are ours alone. Abstract We gain insight into the reasons why(More)
In this paper, we introduce a new Randomised Hough Transform aimed at improving curve detection accuracy and robustness, as well as computational efficiency. Robustness and accuracy improvement is achieved by analytically propagating the errors with image pixels to the estimated curve parameters. The errors with the curve parameters are then used to(More)
This paper describes a preliminary attempt at using Semantic Grid paradigm, especially service-oriented modeling approach, for distributed management of multidisciplinary design knowledge, enabling to add semantics to grid services to endow them with capabilities needed for their successful deployment and reuse in multidisciplinary collaborative design.(More)
MicroRNA-155 (miR-155) is dysregulated in human cancers. In this study, we reported that miR-155 was over-expressed in bladder cancer tissues. We found that miR-155 promoted cell proliferation in vitro and tumorigenesis in vivo. MiR-155 directly reduced the expression of the tumor suppressor DMTF1. The expression of DMTF1 was decreased in bladder cancer(More)
In clinic, many non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) patients receive radiation therapy after chemotherapy failure. However, whether the multidrug resistance (MDR) can elevate the radioresistance (RDR) remains unclear. To evaluate the MDR’s effect on the RDR, screen MDR- and RDR-related proteins in human lung adenocarcinoma (HLA) cells and tissues A549, and(More)
OBJECTIVE Data on latent autoimmune diabetes in adults (LADA) from population-based studies are sparse. We sought to investigate the prevalence and correlates of LADA. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS A total of 8,109 participants, who were aged ≥15 years and living in Tianjin, China, were assessed to identify individuals with type 2 diabetes (American(More)
WD repeat domain 5 (WDR5) plays an important role in various biological functions through the epigenetic regulation of gene transcription; however, its role in bladder cancer remains largely unknown. Our study investigated the role of WDR5 in bladder cancer and demonstrated that WDR5 was upregulated in bladder cancer tissues, and elevated WDR5 protein(More)
