Wireless Personal Communications Abstract| Cellular Digital Packet Data (CDPD) utilizes sleep mode mechanism to conserve the power of mobile end systems (MESs). A timer called T203 determines how quick an M-ES enters the sleep mode, and another timer called T204 determines how often the M-ES wakes up. A large T204 value and a small T203 value can eeectively(More)
OBJECTIVES To elucidate the prognostic factors for fatal adult influenza pneumonia. METHODS Complicated influenza pneumonia is a notifiable disease in Taiwan. In this retrospective nationwide cohort, medical records were reviewed in 38 qualifying cases from 2001 to 2007. In-hospital mortality was the primary endpoint of this study. RESULTS The median(More)
Differential protein expression profiles in the serum samples from patients with lung adenocarcinoma may be associated with glycosylation during cancer development. In this study, we used various glycoproteomic approaches to investigate the different glycoproteomic profiles of human normal and lung adenocarcinoma serum samples and to investigate putative(More)
— Cellular digital packet data (CDPD) utilizes sleep mode mechanism to conserve the power of mobile end systems (M-ES's). A timer called T203 determines how quick an M-ES enters the sleep mode, and another timer called T204 determines how often the M-ES wakes up. A large T204 value and a small T203 value can effectively reduce the power consumption at the(More)
We present a diabetic patient with necrotizing fasciitis caused by Citrobacter freundii associated with an injury from the fish fin. Two isolates recovered six days after cefotaxime treatment had a cefotaxime minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) of 0.12 and 256 mg/L, respectively, and a cefepime MIC of 0.03 and 0.25 mg/L, respectively. The two isolates(More)
BACKGROUND Cancer patients have a higher risk for thrombosis that is usually related to advanced stage and poor prognosis. This study aimed to identify the clinical picture and outcome of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) and small cell lung cancer (SCLC) patients with pulmonary embolism (PE). PATIENTS AND METHODS From 1996 to 2005, the clinical(More)
Streptococcus anginosus is a member of the normal flora of the oral cavity and a pathogen of thoracic infection. However, disseminated infection that was identified from different body fluids at the same time has never been reported. We report a 52-year-old man with advanced pulmonary sarcoma who developed neutropenia, bronchopleural fistula and thoracic(More)
This report presents a case of bacteraemic pneumonia caused by Neisseria lactamica in an adult patient with liver cirrhosis who was successfully treated with ceftriaxone. The isolate was confirmed as N. lactamica by analysis of a partial sequence of the 16S rRNA gene; it had reduced susceptibilities to penicillin (MIC 0.75 microg ml(-1)) and ciprofloxacin(More)
