IP lookup affects the speed of an incoming packet and the time required to determine which output port the packet should be sent to; hence, it plays an important role in the design of router-tables. In this paper, we propose a new data structure, called a multi-prefix trie, for use in designing dynamic router-tables. One key feature of our data structure is(More)
We have previously demonstrated a xenograft of interleukin-6 (IL-6) overexpressing basal cell carcinoma (BCC) cell line induced tumors with high vasculature in nude mice. Here we asked whether IL-6 could induce angiogenic activity in BCC cell line. Tenfold concentrated conditioned medium (CM) from IL-6 overexpressing BCC cells exhibited higher angiogenic(More)
Cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) is critical for tumor formation, angiogenesis, metastasis, and prognosis. In this study, the role of COX-2 in antiapoptosis, tumorigenesis, and angiogenesis of human basal cell carcinoma (BCC) cells was investigated. Transfection of COX-2 constitutive expression vector into a BCC cell line yielded several overexpressing clones. All(More)
BACKGROUND Atherosclerosis has been considered to be an inflammatory process. In addition to its lipid-lowering properties, statin has been shown to decrease the concentrations of inflammatory markers resulting in reduction of cardiovascular events. Emerging data suggest that withdrawal of statin might be associated with increased cardiac events. The(More)
In vivo electroporation (EP) of the murine interleukin-12 (IL-12) gene in an expression plasmid (pIL-12) was evaluated for antitumor activity. EP transfer of pIL-12 into mouse quadriceps muscles elicited significant levels of serum IL-12 and interferon-gamma. Intramuscular EP of pIL-12 resulted in complete regression or substantial inhibition of 38C13(More)
BACKGROUND As an acute phase protein, α1-antitrypsin (AAT) has been extensively studied in acute coronary syndrome, but it is unclear whether a relationship exists between AAT and stable angina pectoris (SAP). The purpose of the present study was to investigate the association between AAT plasma levels and SAP. METHODS Overall, 103 SAP patients diagnosed(More)

BACKGROUND Genetic factors can influence antihypertensive response to metoprolol, and many studies focused on the relationship between the genotype in beta1-adrenergic receptor and blood pressure (BP), little was known about the association of angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) genotype with the therapeutic result of metoprolol. The present study aimed to(More)
PURPOSE Serum NGAL is highly expressed in patients with advanced renal cancer treated with sunitinib. We investigated the role of NGAL in sunitinib resistance in renal cell carcinoma to identify potential tactics to overcome it. MATERIALS AND METHODS NGAL expression was correlated with sunitinib sensitivity. Vascular endothelial growth factor related(More)
OBJECTIVE To observe the effect of Tetramethyl pyrazine (TMP) on the cytokines and inflammatory mediators in the serum and the synovial fluid of collagen-induced arthritis (CIA)rats, and further to investigate its possible mechanisms for treating rheumatoid arthritis (RA). METHODS Type II CIA rat model was established. Rats in the TMP group were(More)
