The Texas Liver Institute announced that Dr. Naim Alkhouri has joined the staff as their Director of the Metabolic Center and will have a leadership role in the Pediatric Liver Disease Program at University Hospital and UT Health. Dr. Alkhouri is well-known globally for his expertise in pediatric and adult fatty liver disease. Dr. Alkhouri joins TLI and UT Health from the Cleveland Clinic, where he was recognized as one of the top hepatologists in the mid-West. He has published extensively in the field of metabolic liver disorders and has presented his work at conferences such as the American Association of Liver Disease and Digestive Disease Week. The Texas Liver Institute is a leader in clinical liver research, with contributions that have changed the way liver disease is treated today. Active research in adult fatty liver disease, cirrhosis and liver cancer are the prime focus of the Institute’s faculty and staff. Adult fatty liver disease afflicts roughly 30% of the Texas population, and is a leading cause of cirrhosis in the United States. Because of fatty liver disease’s status as a growing epidemic in children, affecting up to 10% of children in the United states, Dr. Alkhouri’s addition to the Texas Liver Institute will make family care a new priority for the clinic. As part of Dr. Alkhouri’s tremendous contributions to family liver care, children will receive a comprehensive consultation, lab work to evaluate viral, genetic and metabolic disorders, nutrition counseling, same-day access to to Fibroscan liver stiffness assessment, and increased access to cutting edge clinical research trials. “I am thrilled to be joining this incredible team in providing the best liver care Texas has to offer," says Dr. Alkhouri. "I am hopeful that our research will lead to important advances in children afflicted with liver disease. There is much work to be done for this growing epidemic of childhood obesity and metabolic disorders, and I am excited to have the necessary resources and collaboration to help solve these important problems.” Dr. Fred Poordad, VP of Academic and Clinical Affairs at the Texas Liver Institute, adds, “Dr. Alkhouri is one of very few pediatric and adult fatty liver experts in the world, and having him join the Texas Liver Institute, UT Health and University Health Systems is a fantastic addition to all of the medical talent in San Antonio. This is exciting news for children afflicted with liver disorders and parents should feel assured that the Texas Liver Institute mission of advancing liver health through scientific advancements now applies to both children and adults.” The Texas Liver Institute (TLI) is a one-of-a-kind facility, and one of the very few dedicated and freestanding clinical care and research facilities in the world. The most advanced research in viral hepatitis, fatty liver disorders, liver cancer and cirrhosis is being conducted in this facility, which has been recognized internationally for its contributions to the field of liver diseases. The Texas Liver Institute continues to push the boundaries of new discoveries, deliver excellent health care in a compassionate and comfortable setting, and advance the field of liver disease into the future through research and education. Naim Alkhouri, M.D., was most recently Assistant Professor of Medicine at the Cleveland Clinic Digestive Disease Institute and Director of the Metabolic Liver Disease Clinic. Dr. Alkhouri has been published in over 100 publications and presents his work at both national and international medical conferences. Among many research awards, Dr. Alkhouri received the American College of Gastroenterology Junior Faculty Development Award to study the analysis of breath volatile organic compounds to diagnose nonalcoholic fatty liver disease. Dr. Alkhouri’s specialty interests include nonalcoholic fatty liver disease, viral hepatitis, autoimmune hepatitis, alpha 1 antitrypsin deficiency, and liver transplantation.

In general terms, embodiments of the present invention relate to an overvoltage protection circuit. In some embodiments, the overvoltage protection circuit includes: (a) an input receiving node configured to receive an input voltage; (b) an input transmitting node; (c) an input switch formed between the input receiving node and the input transmitting node, and configured to selectively electrically connect the input receiving node to the input transmitting node based on a switch control signal, where the input switch is configured to cut off an electrical connection between the input receiving node and the input transmitting node when the switch control signal is in an inactive state (e.g., a logic low state L); and (d) a control signal generation block configured to sense a transmission voltage of the input transmitting node and generate the switch control signal in the inactive state when the transmission voltage rises to a reference voltage or higher.

A differential data transferring system and method uses three level voltages to simultaneously transfer three signals (for example, two data signals and one clock signal) across two transfer line sets (i.e., four transfer lines). Therefore, the differential data transferring method increases transferring efficiency by using fewer transfer lines. Also, according to the differential data transferring system and method, one of two transfer lines forming a transfer line set is controlled to a middle voltage level, while the other transfer line is controlled to either a high voltage or a low voltage. Accordingly, the voltage difference between the two transfer lines may be maintained at a constant amplitude. Additionally, the difference between first and second dividing voltages DC1 and DC2, which are used for generating a reference output data, is controlled to maintain a constant amplitude. Therefore, the differential data transferring system and method may provide improved operation reliability.

Disclosed is a light emitting diode (LED) illuminating apparatus having enhanced stability of the quantity of light. The LED illuminating apparatus includes an LED lighting block connected to a rectified voltage and including at least one LED module, an alternative reference voltage generating block configured to detect the rectified voltage and generate an alternative reference voltage, and a switching block connected to the tap and configured to form a closed circuit including the at least one LED module. The at least one LED module includes a cathode terminal having a tap. The alternative reference voltage has a voltage level according to a root mean square (RMS) value of the rectified voltage. The amount of currents flowing through the closed circuit is controlled by the alternative reference voltage to have a negative relationship with the RMS value of the rectified voltage. In an LED illuminating apparatus according to the present invention, degradation in uniformity of light due to instability of an input power is reduced.

A flat panel display device and a source driver circuit for the flat panel display device are provided for performing multiple driving operations within a unit sourcing period. In the flat panel display device, multiple driving operations are performed within the unit sourcing period, and source voltages are supplied to a selected number of data lines in each driving operation. In this case, one DAC is driven to generate source voltages for a plurality of data lines. In the flat panel display device, the number of the DACs is reduced and the overall layout area is greatly reduced. Also, standby power consumption can be greatly reduced due to the reduced number of amplifiers. Since the source voltages provided by the same amplifier are provided to adjacent data lines, a metal layer can be easily wired in the display panel.

An internal clock generating circuit and a method for generating an internal clock signal are disclosed. The internal clock generating circuit includes a transition detecting block for detecting transitions in a data signal and generating data transition information, and an internal clock generating block for generating and storing a period digital data while detecting the unit period of the data signal in a period confirming mode. In the internal clock generating circuit, the internal clock signal can be generated without the external clock signal, so that the internal clock generating circuit can be implemented with a simple constitution. Additionally, an extra locking time is not required for locking the extra clock signal, so that the operating speed of the internal clock generating circuit is improved. The internal clock signal is dependent on the data signal, so that it is easy to control the set-up and hold for data.
