  • Publication number: 20210164999
    Abstract: The present invention provides a method for measuring the trimethylamine N-oxide (TMAO) production capacity in a subject, which comprises the following steps: (a) making the subject intake a specific dosage of carnitine; and (b) obtaining a body fluid sample of the subject at a specific time point after the subject ingests the carnitine and detecting the TMAO content in the body fluid sample. Different from the general technical detection on the market that only detects the gut microbiome composition, the invention can directly detect the ability of gut microbiota to produce TMAO in the human body. In addition, compared with directly detecting the concentration of TMAO in the blood, the invention gives a better predictive effect of gut microbiota functional phenotypes.

  • Publication number: 20210152290
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and devices for wireless communications are described. In some wireless communications systems, devices (e.g., base stations, user equipment (UEs), etc.) may utilize polar coding along with hybrid automatic repeat request (HARQ) techniques. In these systems, a device may encode bits for transmission by mapping information and parity check bits to a first set of polarized bit channels of a polar code. If this transmission is not successfully received at a decoding device, the encoding device may generate a HARQ retransmission. The device may copy information bits to a second set of polarized bit channels of a second polar code containing the first polar code and may assign parity check bits to the second set of bit channels for the copied information bits. These additional parity check bits for the repeated information bits may increase transmission reliability and may support improved early termination at the decoding device.
