BACKGROUND Luteolin (LUT), a kind of flavonoid which is extracted from a variety of diets, has been reported to convey protective effects of various diseases. Recent researches have suggested that LUT can carry out cardioprotective effects during ischemia/reperfusion (I/R). However, there have no reports on whether LUT can exert protective effects against(More)
—A series of computer vision-based fire detection algorithms is proposed in this paper. These algorithms can be used in parallel with conventional fire detection systems to reduce false alarms. They can also be deployed as a stand-alone system to detect fire combined with a video acquisition device. This paper chiefly discussed the segmentation problem. It(More)
The purpose of this study is to examine the relations among plasma periostin, glucose and lipid metabolism, insulin resistance and inflammation in Chinese patients with obesity (OB), and type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). Plasma periostin levels in the T2DM group were significantly higher than the NGT group (P < 0.01). Patients with both OB and T2DM had the(More)
BACKGROUND Coronary artery disease is a growing public health problem and a major cause of morbidity and mortality. Experimental animal models provide valuable tools for studying myocardial ischemia reperfusion (I/R) injury in vivo. OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to describe a new method (outer balloon ligation) to induce myocardial I/R injury in(More)
The present study investigated a genome microarray of colorectal lesions (spasm segments) in children with Hirschsprung's disease (HSCR), and analyzed the results. In addition, the present study screened for differentially expressed genes in children with HSCR. Microarray technology was used to examine the human gene expression profiles of the colorectal(More)
Recent reports have described damage to myelinated fibers in the central nervous system (CNS) in patients with temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE) and animal models. However, only limited data are available on the dynamic changes that occur in myelinated fibers, oligodendrocytes (which are myelin-forming cells), and oligodendrocyte precursor cells (OPCs), which(More)
In this paper, a new algorithm of Smart Acoustic Room (SAR) system is prensented for partitioning room acoustically. That is, in different places of the room, one can hear to the desired signal. This is realized by robust estimation algorithm for well control of room acoustic impulse responses. Therefore, unwanted music or speech signal is canceled, while,(More)
