Characteristics of tongue pose the most important information for Traditional Chinese Medicine diagnosis. So far, extensive studies have been made on extracting tongue surface features, but rarely refer to sublingual vein that is also diagnostically important. This paper focuses on establishing a feature quantification framework for the inspection of(More)
Characteristics of tongue pose the most important information for tongue diagnosis. So far, extensive studies have been made on extracting tongue surface features. Meanwhile, the sublingual vein diagnosis, one important part of tongue diagnosis, has received increasing attention. In this paper, a novel image acquisition device specially designed for(More)
Transformation, matching, and retrieval of face images in different modalities are often encountered in many applications. Cross-modality face synthesis, which aims to transform face images between modalities, can serve as an intermediate representation for these tasks, and remains an active yet challenging topic in low level vision. Most existing(More)
This study investigated the anti-methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (anti-MRSA) activity and chemical compositions of ether extracts from Rhizoma Polygoni Cuspidati (ET-RPC). Significant anti-MRSA activities of ET-RPC against MRSA252 and MRSA clinical strains were tested in in vitro antibacterial experiments, such as inhibition zone diameter test,(More)
Characteristics of tongue pose the most important information for traditional Chinese medicine diagnosis. So far, extensive studies have been made on extracting tongue surface features, but rarely refer to sublingual vein that is also diagnostically important. This paper presents a novel approach to extract spatial characteristics of sublingual vein based(More)
Sublingual vein is one important diagnostic measurement in Tongue Diagnosis. Segmentation method of sublingual veins from the near infrared sublingual images is proposed in this paper. According to the characteristic of the captured near infrared sublingual images, the radial projection method based on watershed algorithm is firstly applied to acquire the(More)
Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) has become an important bacterium for nosocomial infection. Only a few antibiotics can be effective against MRSA. Therefore, searching for new drugs against MRSA is important. Herein, anti-MRSA activities of emodin and its mechanisms were investigated. Firstly, in vitro antimicrobial activity was(More)
The synthetic cytosine-phosphate-guanosine oligodeoxynucleotide 107 (CpG ODN107) is a novel radiosensitizer for glioma treatment. However, the information related to its pharmacokinetics and toxicity remains unclear. Therefore, the plasma pharmacokinetics, distribution, elimination, and acute toxicity of CpG ODN107 in mice were investigated in the present(More)
