The emerging hardware support for thread-level speculation opens new opportunities to parallelize sequential programs beyond the traditional limits. By speculating that many data dependences are unlikely during runtime, consecutive iterations of a sequential loop can be executed speculatively in parallel. Runtime parallelism is obtained when the speculation(More)
BACKGROUND Hand, foot, and mouth disease (HFMD) has caused major public health concerns worldwide, and has become one of the leading causes of children death. China is the most serious epidemic area with a total of 3,419,149 reported cases just from 2008 to 2010, and its different geographic areas might have different spatial epidemiology characteristics at(More)

Despite recent advances in high performance microprocessor architecture and compilation technologies, many integer applications are still hard to speedup their performance. Value prediction and thread-level speculation are two promising techniques to discover and exploit more parallelism in applications. In this paper, we show that value prediction plays an(More)
Thread-level speculation is a technique that brings thread-level parallelism beyond the data-flow limit by executing a piece of code ahead of time speculatively before all its input data are ready. This technique appears particularly appealing for speeding up hard-to-parallelize applications. Although various thread-level speculation architectures and(More)
INTRODUCTION Fungal infection is increasingly common in critical illness with severe sepsis, but the influence of invasive fungal infection (IFI) on severe sepsis is not well understood. The aim of this study was to investigate the impact that IFI has on the outcomes of critically ill surgical patients with severe sepsis in China by means of matched cohort(More)
Software value prediction (SVP) is an effective and powerful compilation technique helping to expose thread-level speculative parallelism. With the help of value analysis and profiling, the compiler identifies critical and predictable variable values and generates speculatively parallelized programs with appropriate value prediction and misprediction(More)
BACKGROUND Many MetS related biomarkers had been discovered, which provided the possibility for building the MetS prediction model. In this paper we aimed to develop a novel routine biomarker-based risk prediction model for MetS in urban Han Chinese population. METHODS Exploring Factor analysis (EFA) was firstly conducted in MetS positive 13,345 males and(More)
BACKGROUND In patients hospitalized in intensive care units (ICU), Candida infections are associated with increased morbidity, mortality and costs. However, previous studies reported confused risk factors for catheter-related Candida bloodstream infection (CRCBSI). The objective was to describe the risk factors, microbiology, management and outcomes of(More)
BACKGROUND The development, validation, and psychometric properties of the Wake Forest Physician Trust Scale (WFPTS)-equivalent instrument for Chinese patients were investigated. MATERIAL AND METHODS We approached 3442 randomly selected outpatients at 3 Shanghai (China) general hospitals, treated ≥2 times per year by the same physician, for participation(More)
Sixteen species of the genus Promalactis Meyrick, 1908 from China are described. Among them, twelve species are described as new: Promalactis bifurciprocessa sp. n., Promalactis convexa sp. n., Promalactis papillata sp. n., Promalactis quadratitabularis sp. n., Promalactis quadriloba sp. n., Promalactis ramispinea sp. n., Promalactis scorpioidea sp. n.,(More)
