Effects of mechanical stimulation on TGF-β1 and bFGF expression of scleral fibroblasts after posterior sclera reinforcement
2013 Edition, May 1, 2013 - IEEE - Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.

To understand the effect of mechanical stimulation on posterior sclera reinforcement (PSR), the rabbit scleral fibroblasts after PSR were subjected to stretch in vitro and TGF-β1 and bFGF...

The MMP-2 and TIMP-2 expression of sclera and scleral fibroblasts after posterior sclera reinforcement surgery
2010 Edition, Volume 5, October 1, 2010 - IEEE - Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.

In order to understand the MMP-2 and TIMP-2 expression of sclera and scleral fibroblasts after posterior sclera reinforcement, three-week-old rabbits were monocularly performed by eyelid suturation randomly to prepare...

Nonlinear Mixed-Effects Models for PET Data
Volume PP - IEEE - Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.

Objective: The current state of the art for compartment modeling of dynamic PET data can be described as a two-stage approach. In Stage 1, individual estimates of kinetic parameters are obtained by fitting models using standard techniques, such as nonlinear least squares (NLS),...

Effects of Suspended Sediment on Salinity Measurements
Volume PP - IEEE - Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.

Widely used conductivity-based salinity measurements may be affected by suspended sediments. Two sets of experiments were carried out to analyze the effects of sediment concentration and grain size on salinity measurements. The results show that the salinities...

Synergistic Effects in Networked Epidemic Spreading Dynamics
Volume PP - IEEE - Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.

In this brief, we study epidemic spreading dynamics taking place in complex networks. We specifically investigate the effect of synergy, where multiple interactions between nodes result in a combined effect larger than the simple sum of their separate effects. Although...

Monitoring Deep Dielectric Charging Effects in Space
Volume PP - IEEE - Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.

a deep dielectric charging effects monitor was proposed for providing in-situ measurements of deep dielectric charging effects on satellites via measurements of the surface leakage currents and the internal charging potential of the dielectric. The...

Long Term Effects of Pair Programming
Volume PP - IEEE - Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.

Contribution: This paper provides evidence for the benefits of pair programming early in the curriculum on student performance later in the curriculum. It also confirms the short term benefits of partnerships at scale. Background: Engineers often work in teams, both in industry...

App Store Effects on Software Engineering Practices
Volume PP - IEEE - Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.

In this paper, we study the app store as a phenomenon from the developers perspective to investigate the extent to which app stores affect software engineering tasks. Through developer interviews and questionnaires, we uncover findings that highlight and quantify the effects...

Effects of Low Temperature Plasmas on Proteins
Volume PP - IEEE - Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.

When operated in an environment containing oxygen and nitrogen low temperature atmospheric pressure plasmas generate copious amounts of reactive oxygen species (ROS) and reactive nitrogen species (RNS). These species can be transported to react with biological matter and...

Remaining Useful Life Prediction for Degradation Processes With Memory Effects
Volume PP - IEEE - Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.

Some practical systems such as blast furnaces and turbofan engines have degradation processes with memory effects. The term of memory effects implies that the future states of the degradation processes depend on both the current state and the past...
