Rotary clock technique has been shown to reduce the power dissipation of clock distribution by up to 80%. However, to our knowledge, no practical digital synchronous circuit has been designed that utilizes the rotary technique due to the multi-phase nature of rotary clock signals and the strong coupling between a rotary clock network and the circuit it(More)
Rotary clock is a multi-gigahertz clock distribution technique based on the principle of wave propagation in transmission lines. In this paper, we perform the first quantitative investigation on the power dissipation of rotary clock designs. Specifically, we have developed a software tool based on the method of partial element equivalent circuit (PEEC) that(More)
Peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor gamma (PPARgamma) coactivator-1 alpha (PGC-1alpha) coactivates multiple transcription factors and regulates several metabolic processes. The current study investigated the role of PGC-1alpha in the induction of apoptosis in human epithelial ovarian cancer cells. The PGC-1alpha mRNA level between human ovaries and(More)
Obesity is rapidly becoming pandemic and is associated with increased carcinogenesis, especially hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). Adipose tissue is considered as an endocrine organ because of its capacity to secrete a variety of adipokines, such as leptin, adiponectin and resistin. Recently, adipokines have been demonstrated to be associated with kinds of(More)
Surgery following neoadjuvant chemoradiotherapy (NCRT) is a common multidisciplinary treatment for resectable esophageal cancer (EC). After analyzing 12 randomized controlled trials (RCTs), we discuss the key issues of surgery in the management of resectable EC. Along with chemoradiotherapy, NCRT is recommended for patients with squamous cell carcinoma(More)
Two metal-organic coordination polymers [Ag(bipy)(UO(2))(bdc)(1.5)] (bipy=2,2'-bipyridyl, bdc=1,4-benzenedicarboxylate) and [Ag(2)(phen)(2)UO(2)(btec)] (phen=1,10-phenanthroline, btec=1,2,4,5-benzenetetracarboxylate) were obtained by hydrothermal assembly of the d(10) metal silver and the 5f metal uranium with mixed ligands. Both compounds form(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES The purpose of this study is to estimate the effect of extranodal metastasis (EM) on recurrence and survival in patients with adenocarcinoma of the esophagogastric junction (AEG) after curative resection. METHODS Clinical data from 284 node-positive AEG patients who underwent curative resection were reviewed. Univariate and(More)
BACKGROUND Postoperative radiotherapy (PORT) for thymic tumor is still controversial. The object of the study is to evaluate the role of PORT for stage I to III thymic tumors. METHODS The Chinese Alliance for Research in Thymomas (ChART) was searched for patients with stage I to III thymic tumors who underwent surgical resection without neoajuvant therapy(More)
