Automatic screening of cervical cells using block image processing

Background Cervical cancer is the second leading cause of female-specific cancer-related deaths after breast cancer, especially in developing countries. However, the incidence of the disease may be significantly decreased if the patient is diagnosed in the pre-cancerous lesion stage or earlier. In recent years, computer-based algorithms are widely used in cervical cancer...

Multivariable Super Twisting Based Robust Trajectory Tracking Control for Small Unmanned Helicopter

This paper presents a highly robust trajectory tracking controller for small unmanned helicopter with model uncertainties and external disturbances. First, a simplified dynamic model is developed, where the model uncertainties and external disturbances are treated as compounded disturbances. Then the system is divided into three interconnected subsystems: altitude subsystem, yaw...

A Novel Approach to Sliding Mode Control of Time-Delay Systems

This paper is concerned with the sliding mode control for a class of linear systems with time-varying delays. By utilizing a novel Lyapunov-Krasovskii functional and combining it with the delay fractioning approach as well as the free-weighting matrix technology, a sufficient condition is established such that the resulting sliding mode dynamics is asymptotically stable. Then, a...

A Novel Approach to Control Design for Linear Neutral Time-Delay Systems

This paper is concerned with the problem of control of linear neutral systems with time-varying delay. Firstly, by applying a novel Lyapunov-Krasovskii functional which is constructed with the idea of delay partitioning approach, appropriate free-weighting matrices, an improved delay-dependent bounded real lemma (BRL) for neutral systems is established. By using the obtained BRL...

Acute Toxicity of Intravenously Administered Titanium Dioxide Nanoparticles in Mice

Background With a wide range of applications, titanium dioxide (TiO2) nanoparticles (NPs) are manufactured worldwide in large quantities. Recently, in the field of nanomedicine, intravenous injection of TiO2 nanoparticulate carriers directly into the bloodstream has raised public concerns on their toxicity to humans. Methods In this study, mice were injected intravenously with a...

Effects of Diet and/or Exercise in Enhancing Spinal Cord Sensorimotor Learning

Given that the spinal cord is capable of learning sensorimotor tasks and that dietary interventions can influence learning involving supraspinal centers, we asked whether the presence of omega-3 fatty acid docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and the curry spice curcumin (Cur) by themselves or in combination with voluntary exercise could affect spinal cord learning in adult spinal mice...

Effects of Dietary Restriction on Growth, Neurobehavior, and Reproduction in Developing Kunmin Mice

The effects of dietary restriction (DR) on growth, neurobehavior, and reproduction in developing Kunmin mice were investigated in this study. Male and female mice were fed a standard rodent diet ad libitum (control), 80% of control (20% DR), or 65% of control (35% DR) for 3 months. Body weight of DR mice was reduced relative to control except that of females in the 20% DR group...

Nanoparticles for Applications in Cellular Imaging

In the following review we discuss several types of nanoparticles (such as TiO2, quantum dots, and gold nanoparticles) and their impact on the ability to image biological components in fixed cells. The review also discusses factors influencing nanoparticle imaging and uptake in live cells in vitro. Due to their unique size-dependent properties nanoparticles offer numerous...
