– IP over WDM networks have been receiving much attention as a promising approach to building the next generation Internet since it can reduce complexities and overheads associated with the ATM and SONET layers. Provision of quality of service (QoS) is one important topic in next generation Internet. Recently , An optical burst switching scheme to support(More)
The aim of our study was to investigate the contribution of serum calreticulin (CRT) in the assessment of disease activity in rheumatoid arthritis (RA). Serum CRT levels were measured by ELISA in 70 patients with established RA, 30 systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), 25 other autoimmune diseases, 20 osteoarthritis (OA), and 35 of healthy controls (HC).(More)
Shortage of functional groups on surface of poly(lactide-co-glycolide) (PLGA)-based drug delivery carriers always hampers its wide applications such as passive targeting and conjugation with targeting molecules. In this research, PLGA nanoparticles were modified with chitosan through physical adsorption and chemical binding methods. The surface charges were(More)
CYP2C9 enzyme activity is involved in the metabolism of substances related to colorectal cancer (CRC), and it is functionally linked to a genetic polymorphism. Two allelic variants of the CYP2C9 gene, namely CYP2C9*2 and CYP2C9*3, differ from wild-type CYP2C9*1 by single amino acid substitutions. These mutated alleles encode enzymes with altered properties(More)
The evolution of polymer based nanoparticles as a drug delivery carrier via pharmaceutical nano/microencapsulation has greatly promoted the development of nano-and micro-medicine in the past few decades. Poly(lactide-co-glycolide) (PLGA) and chitosan, which are biodegradable and biocompatible polymers, have been approved by both the Food & Drug(More)
A long-term experiment was conducted to investigate the alleviative effects of silicon (Si) on cadmium (Cd) toxicity in garlic plants grown in pots. Cd and Si were introduced into soil before sowing. Cd was added at a rate of 20 mg kg−1 soil, and Si was applied at two rates: 50 mg SiO2 kg−1 (Si1) and 500 mg SiO2 kg−1 (Si2). There were totally six treatments(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate the relationship of deoxycytidine kinase (dCK) protein expression and gene single-nucleotide polymorphisms to gemcitabine chemosensitivity in patients with pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC).In total, 54 patients with resectable PDAC, who received postoperative gemcitabine-based therapy, were enrolled in this(More)
Autism spectrum disorders (ASDs) are a group of mental illnesses highly correlated with gut microbiota. Recent studies have shown that some abnormal aromatic metabolites in autism patients are presumably derived from overgrown Clostridium species in gut, which may be used for diagnostic purposes. In this paper, a GC/MS based metabolomic approach was(More)
To Ping ii ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS First of all, I would like to thank most sincerely my Ph.D advisor, Prof. Gary E. Christensen for his exceptional leadership, insightful guidance, wholehearted encouragement and endless enthusiasm. He is a great thinker and educator. He led me to the field of image registration and paid tremendous attention and care on my(More)
UNLABELLED The aim of this study was to investigate the association between 2 polymorphisms (ie, rs10877887 and rs13293512) in the promoter regions of let-7 and the risk of papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC).A case-control study of 618 PTC patients and 562 controls was conducted. The rs10877887 polymorphism was genotyped by using polymerase chain(More)
