OBJECTIVE To analyze the effectiveness of resistance exercise in the treatment of knee osteoarthritis on pain, stiffness, and physical function. DESIGN Systematic review and meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials. DATA SOURCES PubMed, Embase, Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials, the Web of Science, and Chinese Biomedical Literature(More)
Although SAHA is approved for the treatment of cutaneous T-cell lymphoma by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, clinical trials using SAHA as a monotherapy or in combination with other chemotherapeutic agents in solid tumors have not met with success, and the mechanisms of tolerance remain unknown. In this study, using the prostate cancer cell line PC3(More)
A fully distributed optical fiber vibration sensor is demonstrated based on spectrum analysis of Polarization-OTDR system. Without performing any data averaging, vibration disturbances up to 5 kHz is successfully demonstrated in a 1km fiber link with 10m spatial resolution. The FFT is performed at each spatial resolution; the relation of the disturbance at(More)
People with cognitive disabilities need careful matching to find appropriate employment. However, it can be difficult for them to articulate their worries and concerns in a timely and useful manner. This work demonstrates how appropriately-designed technology can assist in accommodating cognitive disabilities, providing avenues to assess their concerns(More)
Biomedical magnetic induction measurement is a promising method for the detection of intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH), especially in China. Aiming at overcoming the problem of low sensitivity, a magnetic induction sensor is chosen to replace the conventional sensors. It uses a two-arm Archimedean spiral coil as the exciter and a circular coil as the receiver.(More)
A novel aptamer biosensor for fast tetracyclines determination was established and illustrated in this paper. The tetracyclines aptamer as a specific affinity molecule was immobilized on the surface of the glassy carbon (GC) electrodes. It can specifically bind tetracyclines quickly in milk and other samples without sample treatment. Subsequently, the(More)
— In order to improve transmission throughput of a multi-hop wireless network, many efforts have been made in recent years to reduce traffic and hence transmission collisions by constructing backbone networks with minimum size. However, many other important issues need to be considered. Instead of simply minimizing the number of backbone nodes or supporting(More)
This paper presents a systematic review and meta-analysis of the effectiveness of aquatic exercise for treatment of knee osteoarthritis (OA). PubMed, the Cochrane Library, Embase, CAMbase, and the Web of Science were screened through to June 2014. Only randomized controlled trials (RCTs) comparing aquatic exercise with control conditions were included. Two(More)
— With the popularity of wireless devices and the increasing demand of network applications, it is emergent to develop more effective communications paradigm to enable new and powerful pervasive applications, and to allow services to be accessed anywhere, at anytime. However, it is extremely challenging to construct efficient and reliable networks to(More)
An electrochemical-TUNEL method was developed for a cell sensor. A 3-D bio-interface based on CNT@PDA-FA was employed in the cytosensor, which significantly improved the cell capture. By coupling with a QD-based nanoprobe and electrochemical stripping analysis, the cytosensor exhibited attractive performance for detection of apoptotic cells.
