—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 multiprefix trie, for use in designing dynamic router-tables. One key feature of our data structure is(More)
BACKGROUND Toll like receptor 4 (TLR4) has been related to inflammation and beta-amyloid deposition in Alzheimer's disease (AD) brain. No study has explored the association between haplotype-tagging single nucleotide polymorphisms (htSNPs) of TLR4 and AD risk previously and ApoE e4 status alone showed low sensitivity in identifying late-onset AD (LOAD)(More)
Cigarette smoke (CS) generates reactive oxygen species (ROS) to produce oxidative damage of bronchial epithelial cells. Prolonged repair responses lead to airway remodeling and irreversible airflow limitation. Thioredoxin (TRX) is a redox protein that scavenges ROS to prevent oxidative stress. The aim of this study was to investigate the mechanisms(More)
BACKGROUND Accumulated evidences have shown that vascular risk factors, e.g., hypertension, diabetes mellitus and hyperlipidemia, may be related to the risk of dementia. This study investigated the association between genetic polymorphisms of a vascular susceptibility gene, Ninjurin2 (NINJ2), and the risk of dementia, which has not been explored previously.(More)
PURPOSE Glycine N-methyltransferase (GNMT) affects genetic stability by regulating the ratio of S-adenosylmethionine to S-adenosylhomocysteine, by binding to folate, and by interacting with environmental carcinogens. In Taiwanese men, GNMT was found to be a tumor susceptibility gene for prostate cancer. However, the association of GNMT with prostate cancer(More)
BACKGROUND Toll-like receptor 4 (TLR4) is one of the best known TLR members expressed on the surface of several leukocytes and tissue cells and has a key function in detecting pathogen and danger-associated molecular patterns. The role of TLR4 in the pathophysiology of several age-related diseases is also well recognized, such as prostate cancer (PCa). TLR4(More)
OBJECTIVE Fast-scan cyclic voltammetry (FSCV) is commonly used to monitor phasic dopamine release, which is usually performed using tethered recording and for limited types of animal behavior. It is necessary to design a wireless dopamine sensing system for animal behavior experiments. APPROACH This study integrates a wireless FSCV system for monitoring(More)
133 The aim of this study is to develop a numerical method to evaluate the optimum seismic station distribution for imaging the source rupture process of an earthquake. Based on the beam-forming technique, the source rupture distribution of an earthquake can be reconstructed through theoretical travel time correction and waveform stacking. Numerical tests(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)
