We propose an effective data hiding method based on the EMD embedding scheme proposed by Zhang et al. in order to enhance the embedding capacity. The main idea of our proposed scheme is to convert secret binary messages into a sequence of digits in an 8-ary notational system. Each secret digit is embedded into two cover pixels by modifying the least(More)
The published data revealed conflicting results of the polymorphism of MDR1 exon 26 SNP C3435T on the pharmacokinetics of cyclosporine; thus, the aim was to conduct a meta-analysis of significant magnitude to investigate the influence of SNP C3435T on the pharmacokinetics of cyclosporine. A literature search was conducted to locate the relevant papers by(More)
UNLABELLED The NS1 protein encoded by influenza A virus antagonizes the interferon response through various mechanisms, including blocking cellular mRNA maturation by binding the cellular CPSF30 3' end processing factor and/or suppressing the activation of interferon regulatory factor 3 (IRF3). In the present study, we identified two truncated NS1 proteins(More)
A new exploiting modification direction embedding method (also called the EMD embedding for short) was proposed by Zhang <i>et al.</i> to show that their proposed method has high embedding capacity and high stego-image quality as well because at most one cover pixel need increase/decrease by one among n cover pixels. Adopting the advantages of the EMD(More)
OBJECTIVE After sinboneHT bone replacement (SBR) was implanted in animals, to evaluate the biocompatibility of SBR and compounded in autogenetic bone in the proportion of one to one in order to prepare for the clinical applications in the future. METHODS Bone defects of 10 mm x l0 mm x 2 mm was made at the mandibular of rabbits, then SBR with different(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the associations between polymorphisms of LEPR Gln223Arg, LEPR Pro1019Pro and the risk on obesity. METHODS A computerized search on literature was carried out in Wanfang, CNKI, VIP databases and CBM, PubMed, EMBASE databases to collect articles published between 1979 and 2010 concerning the associations between polymorphisms of LEPR(More)
The object of our research is to embed secret images with high-capacity and high-quality of the stego image. Taking advantage of the small difference among close neighboring pixels, the secret image can be compressed to be a collection of which each component is either a secret pixel or the difference between two neighboring pixels. Then the collection can(More)
In this research, the mixed mode fracture of a pair of highly rotating metallic blades has been investigated at room temperature using single edge notched specimens. A set of 2-bladed rotor is driven by a 220 volt AC motor and the rotating speed is fixed at 850 rpm. The notch is located in various blade positions from blade root to tip. The correlation of(More)
The assessment on health care system’s performance has become a worldwide issue with the publication of the World Health Report 2000. The increased interests result from rising health care costs, aging populations, medical error/ safety, poor quality, inequality, lack of accountability, sustainability, and patient centeredness. Hospitals play a critical(More)
