Anti-Inflammatory and Anticoagulative Effects of Paeonol on LPS-Induced Acute Lung Injury in Rats
Pin-Kuei Fu,Chieh-Liang Wu,Tung-Hu Tsai,Ching-Liang Hsieh
Evidence-Based Complementary and Alternative Medicine , 2012, DOI: 10.1155/2012/837513
Abstract: Paeonol is an active component of Moutan Cortex Radicis and is widely used as an analgesic, antipyretic, and anti-inflammatory agent in traditional Chinese medicine. We wanted to determine the role of paeonol in treating adult respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS). We established an acute lung injury (ALI) model in Sprague-Dawley rats, which was similar to ARDS in humans, using intratracheal administration of lipopolysaccharide (LPS). The intraperitoneal administration of paeonol successfully reduced histopathological scores and attenuated myeloperoxidase-reactive cells as an index of polymorphonuclear neutrophils infiltration and also reduces inducible nitric oxide synthase expression in the lung tissue, at 16 h after LPS administration. In addition, paeonol reduced proinflammatory cytokines in bronchoalveolar lavage fluid, including tumor-necrosis factor-, interleukin-1, interleukin-6, and plasminogen-activated inhibition factor-1. These results indicated that paeonol successfully attenuates inflammatory and coagulation reactions to protect against ALI.

Mathematics , 2007,
Abstract: We show that a tilting module over the endomorphism algebra of a cluster-tilting object in a 2-Calabi-Yau triangulated category lifts to a cluster-tilting object in this 2-Calabi-Yau triangulated category. This generalizes a recent work of D. Smith for cluster categories.
A Defect Formation as Snail Trails in Photovoltaic Modules  [PDF]
Han-Chang Liu, Chung-Teng Huang, Wen-Kuei Lee, Shih-Siang Yan, Fu-Ming Lin
Energy and Power Engineering (EPE) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/epe.2015.78032
Abstract: In this paper, we discussed the field failures of the brownish discolored lines like snail trails in PV modules. We were successful simulation snail trails in laboratory and outdoor field. We had found out some types EVA (ethylene vinyl acetate) encapsulants and back sheets which had the serious snail trails but others were snail trails free. Furthermore, according to IEC 61215 accelerated aging testing, we also found only within 2% power loss after these modules impacted by snail trails. The main power losses over 5% were come from cell micro cracks before snail trail formation. That snail trails occurrence means solar cells should have micro cracks. In here, we contributed the snail trail effects and avoided the failures in future photovoltaic modules performance.
Compact Dual-Mode Double Square-Loop Resonators for WLAN and Wimax Tri-Band Filter Design
Ji-Chyun Liu;Feng-Seng Huang;Ching-Pin Kuei;Chin-Yen Liu
PIER C , 2013, DOI: 10.2528/PIERC13012002
Abstract: The improved configurations with dual-mode double-square-loop resonators (DMDSLR) for tri-band application are proposed in this paper. Two sets of loops including double-square-loop and G-shaped loop are involved in the resonators. The resonant frequency equations related to DMDSLR geometries are introduced for simply designing tri-band bandpass filter (BPF). Resonant frequencies and transmission zeroes can be controlled by tuning the perimeter ratio of the square rings and the couples. To obtain lower insertion loss, higher out-of-band rejection level, wider bandwidth of tri-band, and compact applications, the miniaturized DMDSLR structure is designed. The effective design procedure is provided. The proposed filter is successfully simulated and measured. It can be applied to WLAN (2.45, 5.20 and 5.80 GHz) and WiMAX (3.50 GHz) systems.

Mei-Hui Lin, Tsai-Fu Chuang, Han-Pin Hsu
Journal of Service Science and Management (JSSM) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/jssm.2014.73017

The objective of this study is to investigate the relationship among teachers’ teaching beliefs, student-centred teaching concept and instructional innovation in Taiwan. The study was conducted with the participation of 538 teachers of elementary schools. A questionnaire of the “teaching beliefs and instructional innovation” designed by the authors was used as the data collection instruments. The descriptive statistics, Pearson product-moment correlation and multiple regression analysis were used in this study. Analysis results showed that: 1) There is a positive relationship between the teaching beliefs and the instructional innovation. 2) Teacher with a high degree of student-centred teaching concept would exhibit a higher level style of instructional innovation. 3) Multiple regression analysis can be used to infer causal relationships between the teachers’ teaching beliefs and instructional innovation.

Oxime Esters of 2,6-Diazaanthracene-9,10-dione and 4,5-Diazafluoren-9-one as Photo-induced DNA-Cleaving Agents
Shang-Shing P. Chou,Jui-Chi Juan,Shwu-Chen Tsay,Kuei Pin Huang,Jih Ru Hwu
Molecules , 2012, DOI: 10.3390/molecules17033370
Abstract: Two series of oxime esters containing the 2,6-diazaanthracene-9,10-dione bis-(O-benzoyloxime) and 4,5-diazafluoren-9-one O-9-benzoyloxime moieties have been synthesized and tested as photo-induced DNA cleaving agents. All these compounds were found to cleave DNA upon irradiation with 312 nm UV light. The structure-activity relationship of these molecules for DNA cleavage was established. A plausible reaction mechanism is also proposed.
A Novel Control Scheme for Temperature Control of Machine Tool Coolers
Kuei- I Tsai,Fu-Jen Wang,Hao- Chuan Lee,Hsu -Cheng Chiang
Journal of Applied Sciences , 2008,
Abstract: A novel Proportional-Integral-Derivative (PID) control method is proposed for the oil cooler of machine tools to achieve better set-point tracking and disturbance rejection performance. The simple PID controller based on Smith predictive method is adopted as the basic controller. To deal with the nonlinear time varying and time delay characteristic of the system, the PWM (pulse width modulation) technique is then chosen as an auxiliary duty ratio control to modulate the bypass solenoid valve to provide precise oil temperature control. Both simulation results using MATLAB and on-site experimental results are presented and compared extensively for demonstrating the effectiveness of the proposed control scheme. The control scheme not only improves the performance of PID controllers cost-effectively but also maintains permanent temperature control specific for machine tool coolers.
Applying AHP to Analyze Criterion of Performance Measurement of National Energy Promotion Projects
Hsin-Pin Fu,Sheng-Wei Lin
International Journal of Electronic Business Management , 2009,
Abstract: A majority of performance measurements have used input and outcome data to assess project performance in past research. Each performance criterion of input and outcome, however, should have different importance in performance measurement according to thecharacter and objective of the project. Unfortunately, there has been relatively little research on criterion of project performance measurement. The purpose of this study, therefore, is to investigate the criteria of performance measurement on the national energy promotion project. According to the literatures review and interview with experts, we present, first, a hierarchy table for related performance criteria and then transform the hierarchy structureinto a pairwise comparison questionnaire of analytic hierarchy process (AHP) format. To calculate the weights of performance criteria and interpret the difference in importance, the respondents are selected from a group of experienced reviewer of energy experts, project leaders, and public sector energy experts. As the empirical results indicate, although the criteria of performance measurements differ form respondents, the priorities of performance criteria include activity participant benefits, promotional activity benefits, and benchmark activity benefits. The results of this study are consistent with the spirit and objective of national energy promotion projects, as well as provide valuable reference for performance measurement of energy promotion projects in the future.

Improving the Safety of Tolerance Induction: Chimerism and Cellular Co-Treatment Strategies Applied to Vascularized Composite Allografts
Wei-Chao Huang,Jeng-Yee Lin,Christopher Glenn Wallace,Fu-Chan Wei,Shuen-Kuei Liao
Clinical and Developmental Immunology , 2012, DOI: 10.1155/2012/107901
Abstract: Although vascularized composite allografts (VCAs) have been performed clinically for a variety of indications, potential complications from long-term immunosuppression and graft-versus-host disease remain important barriers to widespread applications. Recently it has been demonstrated that VCAs incorporating a vascularized long bone in a rat model provide concurrent vascularized bone marrow transplantation that, itself, functions to establish hematopoietic chimerism and donor-specific tolerance following non-myeloablative conditioning of recipients. Advances such as this, which aim to improve the safety profile of tolerance induction, will help usher in an era of wider clinical VCA application for nonlife-saving reconstructions.
