Topological properties of C 0 $C^{0}$ -solution set for impulsive evolution inclusions

In this paper, we study the topological properties to a C 0 $C^{0}$ -solution set of impulsive evolution inclusions. The definition of C 0 $C^{0}$ -solutions for impulsive functional evolution inclusions is introduced. The R δ $R_{\delta}$ -property of C 0 $C^{0}$ -solution set is studied for compact as well as noncompact semigroups on compact intervals. Applying the inverse...

DSab-origin: a novel IGHD sensitive VDJ mapping method and its application on antibody response after influenza vaccination

Functional antibody genes are often assembled by VDJ recombination and then diversified by somatic hypermutation. Identifying the combination of sourcing germline genes is critical to understand the process of antibody maturation, which may facilitate the diagnostics and rapid generation of human monoclonal antibodies in therapeutics. Despite of successful efforts in V and J...

A new asymptotical flat and spherically symmetric solution in the generalized Einstein–Cartan–Kibble–Sciama gravity and gravitational lensing

We firstly present a new asymptotical flat and spherically symmetric solution in the generalized Einstein–Cartan–Kibble–Sciama theory of gravity and then investigate the propagation of photon in this background. This solution possesses three independent parameters which affect sharply photon sphere, deflection angle of light ray and gravitational lensing. Since the condition of...

Diagnostic value of multimodal ultrasound imaging in differentiating benign and malignant TI-RADS category 4 nodules

BackgroundDifferential diagnosis of benign and malignant thyroid imaging reporting and data system category 4 (TI-RADS-4) nodules can be difficult using conventional ultrasound (US). This study aimed to evaluate whether multimodal ultrasound imaging can improve differentiation and characterization of benign and malignant TI-RADS-4 nodules.MethodsMultimodal ultrasound imaging...

Next-generation sequencing-based genetic landscape and its clinical implications for Chinese acute myeloid leukemia patients

Acute myeloid leukemia (AML) is a clinically and biologically heterogeneous disease. The survival of older patients is generally poor. In the current study, we sought to investigate the differences in molecular gene mutations between younger and older AML patients, and to identify those newly diagnosed AML patients who are more likely to respond to standard cytarabine and...

Contractual Efficiency of PPP Infrastructure Projects: An Incomplete Contract Model

This study analyses the contractual efficiency of public-private partnership (PPP) infrastructure projects, with a focus on two financial aspects: the nonrecourse principal and incompleteness of debt contracts. The nonrecourse principal releases the sponsoring companies from the debt contract when the special purpose vehicle (SPV) established by the sponsoring companies falls...

Systems Pharmacology Dissection of Traditional Chinese Medicine Wen-Dan Decoction for Treatment of Cardiovascular Diseases

Cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) have been recognized as first killer of human health. The underlying mechanisms of CVDs are extremely complicated and not fully revealed, leading to a challenge for CVDs treatment in modern medicine. Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) characterized by multiple compounds and targets has shown its marked effects on CVDs therapy. However, system-level...
