OBJECTIVE We aimed to compare the clinical outcomes of anterior approaches (anterior cervical corpectomy with fusion, cervical discectomy with fusion) and posterior approaches (laminectomy, laminoplasty) in multilevel cervical spondylotic myelopathy (MCSM) patients using a systematic meta-analysis. METHODS PubMed, Embase, Scopus, and the Cochrane library(More)
System is pleased to provide its first annual report, " Statewide Emissions Calculations From Wind and Other Renewables, " as required by the 79 th Legislature. This work has been performed through a contract with the Texas Environmental Research Consortium (TERC). In this work the ESL is required to obtain input from public/private stakeholders, and(More)
PURPOSE The aim of this study was to investigate the association between osteosarcoma (OS) and Fanconi anemia (FA) related pathways and the molecular mechanisms. METHODS siRNA for Fanconi anemia complementation group D2 (FANCD2) was constructed and transfected into the osteosarcoma cell line MG-63 cells. Expression of TP53INP1, p53, p21, caspase-9, and(More)
Osteosarcoma is the most common type of aggressive bone cancer. Current treatment strategies include surgical resection, radiation, and chemotherapy. Doxorubicin has been widely used as a chemotherapeutic drug to treat osteosarcoma. However, drug resistance has become a challenge to its use. In this study, p53-wild type U2OS and p53-null MG-63(More)
The aim of this present work is to investigate the interaction between amifostine and human serum albumin (HSA) in simulated physiological conditions by spectroscopic methods to reveal potential toxic effects of the drug. The results reflected that amifostine caused fluorescence quenching of HSA through a static quenching process, which was further(More)
Fault Detection in Dynamic Systems Using the Largest Lyapunov Exponent. A complete method for calculating the largest Lyapunov exponent is developed in this thesis. For phase space reconstruction, a time delay estimator based on the average mutual information is discussed first. Then, embedding dimension is evaluated according to the False Nearest Neighbors(More)
