BACKGROUND Expression of ligands of natural killer group 2D (NKG2D) immunoreceptors, such as major histocompatibility complex class I-related chain A/B (MICA/B), has been proposed to play an important role in tumour immunosurveillance. Soluble forms of MICA/B are increased in sera of cancer patients and are postulated to impair antitumour immune response by(More)
This paper presents an adaptable interpolation approach that can adjust edge sharpness and texture intensity to reconstruct a high quality image according to user's taste in picture quality. Our interpolation approach first resolves an input image I into its skeleton image U and its texture generator V and its residual image D such that I=U·V+D, and(More)
CKD-MBD is a new clinical concept which defines a systemic disorder of mineral and bone metabolism as a result of CKD. Although various mineral metabolic factors are involved in its pathogenesis, alteration in vitamin D metabolism plays a crucial role among them. Vitamin D receptor activators (VDRAs), which are traditionally considered a cardinal treatment(More)
