Parasites including helminthes, protozoa, and medical arthropod vectors are a major cause of global infectious diseases, affecting one-sixth of the world’s population, which are responsible for enormous levels of morbidity and mortality important and remain impediments to economic development especially in tropical countries. Prevalent drug resistance, lack(More)
Cognitive radio networks allow opportunistic spectrum access and can significantly improve spectral efficiency. To achieve higher sensing accuracy, cognitive radio systems often require cooperation among secondary users. One of the most important aspects in collaborative spectrum sensing is the data fusion algorithm which combines the sensing results from(More)
Interleukin (IL)-17A is expressed in the tumor microenvironment where it appears to contribute to tumor development, but its precise role in tumor immunity remains controversial. Here, we report mouse genetic evidence that IL-17A is critical for tumor growth. IL-17A–deficient mice exhibited reduced tumor growth, whereas systemic administration of(More)
One of the most crucial functionalities of cognitive radio networks is spectrum sensing. Completing this task in an accurate manner requires opportunistic spectrum access. Traditionally, sensing has been performed through energy detection by each individual secondary user. In order to increase accuracy, individual measurements are aggregated using different(More)
In the area of performance analysis of wireless networks, one critical issue is the hidden terminal problem, which is considered as one of the severest reasons for the degradation of network performance. In this paper, we incorporate reactive jamming scheme with distributed coordination function (DCF) in IEEE 802.11 based wireless local area networks(More)
IL-35 is a newly discovered inhibitory cytokine secreted by regulatory T cells (Tregs) and may have therapeutic potential in several inflammatory disorders. Acute graft-versus-host disease (aGVHD) is a major complication of allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation and caused by donor T cells and inflammatory cytokines. The role of IL-35 in aGVHD(More)
