Purpose: To evaluate the effectiveness of complete resection and postoperative radiotherapy in spinal cord ependymomas. Methods and materials: We conducted a retrospective study over 20 patients (13 males and 7 females) with histologically confirmed spinal cord ependymomas between July 1985 and April 2001. Among them, 13 patients had ependymomas, 6 had(More)
In this paper, a 2×2 MIMO-OFDM digital baseband receiver for IEEE 802.16 WMAN-OFDM PHY is presented. The inner receiver design includes the timing and carrier frequency synchronization, the channel estimation and the MIMO detection with adaptive equalization technique. In order to enhance the robustness of the system, the BLMS algorithm is derived to(More)
BACKGROUND Taiwan's National Health Insurance (NHI) is a comprehensive and universal program, providing Western medicine (WM) and Chinese medicine (CM). This study aims to explore CM use among prostate cancer patients in NHI. METHODS A cross-section retrospective analysis was conducted using registration and claim data sets from the NHI Research Database.(More)
This study describes an efficient protocol for Agrobacterium tumefaciens-mediated transformation of two subgroups of genotype AAA bananas (Musa acuminata cv. Pei Chiao and Musa acuminata cv. Gros Michel). Instead of using suspension cells, cauliflower-like bud clumps, also known as multiple bud clumps (MBC), were induced from sucker buds on MS medium(More)
Ferredoxin I (Fd-1) is a protein existing in green tissues as an electron carrier for photosynthesis. Reactive oxygen species (ROS) are generated from an over-accumulation of electrons in photosynthetic electron chains. In previous studies, plant ferredoxin-like protein (PFLP) transgenic plants could be made resistant to virulent pathogens, by inducing the(More)
OBJECTIVES The National Health Insurance (NHI) provided Western medicine (WM) and Chinese medicine (CM) in Taiwan. This study aims to explore CM use by women with breast cancer under NHI. METHODS Using NHI Research Database, a retrospective cross-sectional study was conducted. Women with breast cancer were identified by diagnosis codes. Their claims of CM(More)
Purpose: To investigate antiproliferative and radiosensitizing effects of caffeic acid phenethyl ester (CAPE) on medulloblastoma (MB) Daoy cells. Methods and materials: Daoy cells were treated with CAPE in different concentrations and assessed for cell viability, apoptosis, cell cycles, cyclin B1 expressions, radiosensitization and chemosensitization. Human(More)
