A non-barotropic continuum bubbly mixture model is used to study the one-dimensional cavitating ow through a converging-diverging nozzle. The nonlinear dynamics of the cavitation bubbles are modeled by the Rayleigh-Plesset equation. Analytical results show that the bubbleebubble interaction through the hydrodynamics of the surrounding liquid has important(More)
BACKGROUND The insulin-like growth factor (IGF) axis is an important signaling pathway in the growth and survival of many cell and tissue types. This pathway has also been implicated in many aspects of cancer progression from tumorigenesis to metastasis. The multiple roles of IGF signaling in cancer suggest that inhibition of the pathway might yield(More)
The nonlinear dynamics of a spherical cloud of cavitation bubbles have been simulated numerically in order to learn more about the physical phenomena occurring in cloud cavitation. A finite cloud of nuclei is subject to a decrease in the ambient pressure which causes the cloud to cavitate. A subsequent pressure recovery then causes the cloud to collapse.(More)
Two Hamiltonian cycles $$C_1=\langle u_0,u_1,u_2,...,u_{n-1},u_0 \rangle $$ C 1 = ⟨ u 0 , u 1 , u 2 , . . . , u n - 1 , u 0 ⟩ and $$C_2=\langle v_0,v_1,v_2,...,v_{n-1},v_0 \rangle $$ C 2 = ⟨ v 0 , v 1 , v 2 , . . . , v n - 1 , v 0 ⟩ of a graph G are independent starting at $$u_0$$ u 0 if $$u_0=v_0, u_i\ne v_i$$ u 0 = v 0 , u i ≠ v i for all $$1\le i\le(More)

Some statins (simvastatin, lovastatin, and atorvastatin) are metabolized by cytochrome P450s 3A4 (CYP3A4). Inhibitors of CYP3A4 including some calcium channel blockers (CCBs) might increase statin blood concentration, owing to drug-drug interactions. Risk of adverse events such as acute kidney injury might occur following the coprescription of(More)
It has been proposed that pericentromeric satellite DNA arises from the progressive proximal expansion of ancient centromeric DNA. In an attempt to recover putative ancestral centromeric DNA, we microdissected the pericentromeric/centromeric DNA from the chromosome X + 3 of Indian muntjac (Muntiacus muntjak vaginalis) and constructed a microclone-library of(More)
AIM OF THE STUDY Results of recent published studies on the association between the COX-2 8473T>C polymorphism and the risk of breast cancer have often been conflicting. To make a more precise estimation of the potential relationship, a meta-analysis was performed. MATERIAL AND METHODS A total of seven case-control studies with 7,033 cases and 9,350(More)
Highly conserved sequences (regions or domains) play an important role in phylogenetic analysis. In this study, a novel approach to extract highly conserved sequences as representative regions for the genuses of viruses via protein sequences clustering is proposed. A representative region of one genus is extracted from one distinctive protein sequence group(More)
Case A 49-year-old woman presented to the emergency department with abdominal fullness and oliguria for 3 days. The patient had received a hysterectomy due to uterine myoma 1 month previously. She had normal kidney function before the procedure. She also denied alcohol use or history of hepatitis. Physical examination was significant for severe abdominal(More)
