BACKGROUND Lung injury induced by lipopolysaccharide (LPS) remains one of the leading causes of morbidity and mortality in children. The damage to membrane phospholipids leads to the collapse of the bronchial alveolar epithelial barrier during acute lung injury (ALI)/acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS). Phospholipase A2 (PLA2), a key enzyme in the(More)
Objective: We are aimed to investigate whether right ventricular mid-septal pacing (RVMSP) is superior to conventional right ventricular apical pacing (RVAP) in improving clinical functional capacity and left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) for patients with high-degree atrio-ventricular block and moderately depressed left ventricle (LV) function.(More)
This thesis addresses three important problems related to sensor data processing with the purpose to improve the correctness of results in execution of sensor queries. The first problem focuses on how to schedule updates to maintain the temporal validity of sensor data with minimal workload. The second problem is how to select the right set of sensors for(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of the study was to investigate the expression and regulation of cytoskeleton and apoptosis related genes in several brain areas after cerebral infarction. METHODS Tissues were collected from ten autopsy brains from cerebral infarction patients. Using immunohistochemistry, several cytoskeleton and apoptosis related genes were examined in(More)
