Woong-Kee Loh,Yang-Sae Moon,Jun-Gyu Kang
Computer Science , 2010, DOI: 10.1587/transinf.E93.D.3120
Abstract: In this paper, we emphasize the need for data cleansing when clustering large-scale transaction databases and propose a new data cleansing method that improves clustering quality and performance. We evaluate our data cleansing method through a series of experiments. As a result, the clustering quality and performance were significantly improved by up to 165% and 330%, respectively.

Abstract: Objective: Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) after total knee arthroplasty (TKA) is very common and leading cause of death due to this procedure. The objective of this study was to investigate the incidence and clinical characteristics of DVT after TKA with DVT chemoprophylaxis. Methods: This is a prospective cohort study in single institution. The patients received postoperative DVT chemoprophylaxis (low molecular weight heparin (LMWH) or Fondaparinux), followed by duplex ultrasonography to check for DVT 1 - 2 weeks after TKA. The clinical characteristics were summarized and analysed by chi-square test and regression analysis. Results: Five hundred and thirty four patients were enrolled from January 2007 to December 2010. DVT chemoprophylaxis was administered in 524 (98.1%) of the 534 patients. DVT occurred in 9 subjects (1.69%); 8 subjects had DVT in the leg, and 1 subject had a pulmonary embolism. Among them, asymptomatic DVT was observed in 5 patients (0.94%). Univariate analysis showed that surgical methods (revision, P = 0.0007), body mass index (BMI) (>25, P = 0.0028), low platelet count (less than 150 × 103, P = 0.0219), time in the intensive care unit (ICU) (P < 0.0001), no administration of prophylactic LMWH (P = 0.0392), and a history of DVT (P < 0.0001) were significant risk factors of DVT. Conclusions: The incidence of DVT was 1.69% after TKA with prophylactic antithrombotic therapy. Revision surgery, BMI, low platelet count, time in ICU, absence of prophylactic LMWH and history of DVT were significant risk factors of DVT.

Abstract: AIM: To investigate the effectiveness and safety of limited endoscopic sphincterotomy (EST) plus large balloon dilation (LBD) for removing choledocholithiasis in patients with periampullary diverticula (PAD).METHODS: A total of 139 patients with common bile duct (CBD) stones were treated with LBD (10-20 mm balloon diameter) after limited EST. Of this total, 73 patients had PAD and 66 patients did not have PAD (controls). The results of stone removal and complications were retrospectively evaluated.RESULTS: There were no significant differences between the PAD and the control groups in overall successful stone removal (94.5% vs 93.9%), stone removal in first session (69.9% vs 81.8%), mechanical lithotripsy (12.3% vs 13.6%), and complications (11.0% vs 7.6%). Clinical outcomes were also similar between the types of PAD, but the rate of stone removal in first session and the number of sessions were significantly lower and more frequent, respectively, in type B PAD (papilla located near the diverticulum) than controls [23/38 (60.5%) vs 54/66 (81.8%), P = 0.021; and 1 (1-2) vs 1 (1-3), P = 0.037, respectively] and the frequency of pancreatitis was significantly higher in type A PAD (papilla located inside or in the margin of the diverticulum) than in controls (16.1% vs 3.0%, P = 0.047).CONCLUSION: Limited EST plus LBD was an effective and safe procedure for removing choledocholithiasis in patients with PAD. However, some types of PAD should be managed with caution.

Abstract: Spin-polarized electric current exerts torque on local magnetic spins, resulting in magnetic domain-wall (DW) motion in ferromagnetic nanowires. Such current-driven DW motion opens great opportunities toward next-generation magnetic devices controlled by current instead of magnetic field. However, the nature of the current-driven DW motion--considered qualitatively different from magnetic-field-driven DW motion--remains yet unclear mainly due to the painfully high operation current densities J_OP, which introduce uncontrollable experimental artefacts with serious Joule heating. It is also crucial to reduce J_OP for practical device operation. By use of metallic Pt/Co/Pt nanowires with perpendicular magnetic anisotropy, here we demonstrate DW motion at current densities down to the range of 10^9 A/m^2--two orders smaller than existing reports. Surprisingly the current-driven motion exhibits a scaling behaviour identical to the field-driven motion and thus, belongs to the same universality class despite their qualitative differences. Moreover all DW motions driven by either current or field (or by both) collapse onto a single curve, signalling the unification of the two driving mechanisms. The unified law manifests non-vanishing current efficiency at low current densities down to the practical level, applicable to emerging magnetic nanodevices.
Roles of adiabatic and nonadiabatic spin transfer torques on magnetic domain wall motion

Abstract: Electric current exerts torques-so-called spin transfer torques (STTs)-on magnetic domain walls (DWs), resulting in DW motion. At low current densities, the STTs should compete against disorders in ferromagnetic nanowires but the nature of the competition remains poorly understood. By achieving two-dimensional contour maps of DW speed with respect to current density and magnetic field, here we visualize unambiguously distinct roles of the two STTs-adiabatic and nonadiabatic-in scaling behaviour of DW dynamics arising from the competition. The contour maps are in excellent agreement with predictions of a generalized scaling theory, and all experimental data collapse onto a single curve. This result indicates that the adiabatic STT becomes dominant for large current densities, whereas the nonadiabatic STT-playing the same role as a magnetic field-subsists at low current densities required to make emerging magnetic nanodevices practical.

A Compact Beam Reconfigurable Antenna for Symmetric Beam Switching

PIER , 2012, DOI: 10.2528/PIER12032005
Abstract: In this paper, two radiation pattern-reconfigurable antennas are designed to operate over DCS 1800 frequency bands. The geometry of the proposed antennas is symmetric with respect to the vertical center line. The electrical shapes of the antennas are composed of a monopole-loaded loop and an open wire. The open wire functions as either a director or reflector for the two antennas. Depending on the switching state, the antennas can select between two beam directions with no input impedance difference. The sizes of each antenna are then optimized to achieve beam switching capability using PIN diodes and FETs. The reflection coefficients and gain patterns for two bias conditions using both switches are measured and compared with the simulated results. The measured results show that the proposed antennas can clearly alternate their beam directions using the switching components.
First-Principles Calculations on the Half-Metallicity of Rock-Salt Ferromagnetic FeO  [PDF]
Jun Liu, Xiaolan Yang, Wei Kang
Journal of Materials Science and Chemical Engineering (MSCE) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/msce.2015.39001

The geometrical structure of ferromagnetic FeO is optimized. Its electric and magnetic properties such as the half-metallicity, the conductivity and the magnetic moment distribution are investigated by performing first-principles calculations within the generalized gradient approximation for the exchange-correlation function based on density functional theory. Results show that ferromagnetic FeO has 100% spin-polarization at the Fermi level. Its supercell magnetic moments are 32.00 μB, which arise mainly from 3d-orbits of Fe-ions. The electronic structures of Fe-ions are Fe2+t2g3↑eg2↑t*2g1↓.

Raman Spectroscopy Provides a Powerful Diagnostic Tool for Accurate Determination of Albumin Glycation

Abstract: We present the first demonstration of glycated albumin detection and quantification using Raman spectroscopy without the addition of reagents. Glycated albumin is an important marker for monitoring the long-term glycemic history of diabetics, especially as its concentrations, in contrast to glycated hemoglobin levels, are unaffected by changes in erythrocyte life times. Clinically, glycated albumin concentrations show a strong correlation with the development of serious diabetes complications including nephropathy and retinopathy. In this article, we propose and evaluate the efficacy of Raman spectroscopy for determination of this important analyte. By utilizing the pre-concentration obtained through drop-coating deposition, we show that glycation of albumin leads to subtle, but consistent, changes in vibrational features, which with the help of multivariate classification techniques can be used to discriminate glycated albumin from the unglycated variant with 100% accuracy. Moreover, we demonstrate that the calibration model developed on the glycated albumin spectral dataset shows high predictive power, even at substantially lower concentrations than those typically encountered in clinical practice. In fact, the limit of detection for glycated albumin measurements is calculated to be approximately four times lower than its minimum physiological concentration. Importantly, in relation to the existing detection methods for glycated albumin, the proposed method is also completely reagent-free, requires barely any sample preparation and has the potential for simultaneous determination of glycated hemoglobin levels as well. Given these key advantages, we believe that the proposed approach can provide a uniquely powerful tool for quantification of glycation status of proteins in biopharmaceutical development as well as for glycemic marker determination in routine clinical diagnostics in the future.
