In response to the serious scalability and deployment concerns with IP Multicast, we and other researchers have advocated an alternate architecture for supporting group communication applications over the Internet where all multicast functionality is pushed to the edge. We refer to such an architecture as End System Multicast. While End System Multicast has(More)
A simple, sensitive and selective high-performance liquid chromatography electrospray ionization tandem mass spectrometry (LC-ESI-MS/MS) method was developed for simultaneous determination and pharmacokinetic study of six active components, protocatechuic acid, chlorogenic acid, caffeic acid, ferulic acid rosmarinic acid and paeoniflorin in rat plasma after(More)
Economic guidance can be of substantial value to policymakers in principle. However, guidance delivered in the form of complex formulae and detailed mathematical characterizations of optimal policies may not be fully appreciated or warmly embraced. Consequently, insights like those of William Rogerson (2003) are particularly important. Rogerson demonstrates(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of the current meta-analysis was to assess the influence of common genetic polymorphisms in the 5-HTR2A gene on the efficacy of antidepressants in the treatment of major depressive disorder (MDD). METHOD MEDLINE (1966-2013), Cochrane Library Database (Issue 12, 2013), EMBASE (1980-2013), CINAHL (1982-2013), Web of Science (1945-2013) and(More)
Gold nanoparticles (AuNPs) have emerged as attractive non-viral gene vectors. However their application in regenerative medicine is still limited partially due to a lack of an intrinsic capacity to transfect difficult-to-transfect cells such as primary cells or stem cells. In current study, we report the synthesis of antimicrobial peptide conjugated(More)
MPEG-7 documents, which are primarily for multimedia information exchange, are also data-centric XML documents. Due to its advantages, the relational DBMS is the best choice for storing such XML documents. Storing XML data in relational DBMS can be classified into two classes of storage model: structure-mapping and model-mapping. However, the(More)
MPEG-7 is a promising standard for the description of multimedia content. A number of applications based on MPEG-7 media descriptions have been set up for research, commercial and industrial applications. Therefore, an efficient storage solution for large amounts of MPEG-7 descriptions is certainly desirable. As a kind of data-centric XML documents, MPEG-7(More)
Curcumin, a phenolic antioxidant compound derived from the rhizome of the turmeric plant Curcuma longa, has proven to be a modulator of intracellular signaling pathways that control cancer cell growth, inflammation, invasion and apoptosis, revealing its anticancer potential. In this study, a Glycyrrhetinic Acid-Modified Curcumin-Loaded Nanostructured Lipid(More)
As the oldest exposed basement and the typical sedimentary cover of the Yangtze craton, the Huangling massif is a suitable place to decipher the tectonics of South China block. Structural analysis shows that the Huangling massif has an elliptic domal shape with N–S striking long axis, an asymmetric antiform with a steep western flank and a gentle eastern(More)
A rapid and sensitive method for determination of ascaridole in rat plasma was developed based on gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC/MS). The analyte and internal standard (IS), naphthalene, were extracted from plasma with ethyl acetate and then separated by GC on a HP-5MS capillary analytical column (30 m x 0.25 mm, 0.25 microm) and determined by a(More)
