BACKGROUND Cell migration is a basis for invasion and metastasis of malignant tumors. Receptor tyrosine kinases are recognized as important therapeutic targets in antineoplastic strategies. C-met is a receptor tyrosine kinase highly expressed in human hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) cell line MHCC97-H. Higher expression of c-met in tumor tissue can lead to(More)
BACKGROUND There is increasing interest in using prediction models to identify patients at risk of readmission or death after hospital discharge, but existing models have significant limitations. Electronic medical record (EMR) based models that can be used to predict risk on multiple disease conditions among a wide range of patient demographics early in(More)
In response to the increasing influence of practice theory perspectives for studying organisational and inter-organisational information systems, we demonstrate that an important dilemma from this perspective for data collection methods is between authentic access to practices and the ability to thematise knowledge of practices. We propose a promising new(More)
As the first defence for cells to counteract the toxicity of active oxygen, superoxide dismutase (SOD) plays an important role in the response of living organisms to stress and cell differentiation. One extracellular Cu-ZnSOD (ecCu-ZnSOD), and two MnSODs, were identified based on the Volvariella volvacea genome sequence. All three genes have complicated(More)
There has been an urgent need for an effective and efficient upper limb rehabilitation method for poststroke patients. We present a Micro-Sensor-based Upper Limb rehabilitation System for poststroke patients. The wearable motion capture units are attached to upper limb segments embedded in the fabric of garments. The body segment orientation relative to the(More)
The use of predictive modeling for real-time clinical decision making is increasingly recognized as a way to achieve the Triple Aim of improving outcomes, enhancing patients' experiences, and reducing health care costs. The development and validation of predictive models for clinical practice is only the initial step in the journey toward mainstream(More)
OBJECTIVE To test a multidisciplinary approach to reduce heart failure (HF) readmissions that tailors the intensity of care transition intervention to the risk of the patient using a suite of electronic medical record (EMR)-enabled programmes. METHODS A prospective controlled before and after study of adult inpatients admitted with HF and two concurrent(More)
An efficient and reproducible process for the synthesis of methyl 2,3,4,5-tetradeoxy-7,8-O-isopropylidene-D-arabino-nanonate (2), a key intermediate in the total synthesis of (+)-biotin (1), starting from readily available D-mannose is described. The crucial part of this synthesis was the development of a practical route to a novel O-benzyl protected(More)
The objective of the study is to estimate the expression of some antibodies in the metastatic adenocarcinomas, malignant epithelial mesotheliomas, and reactive mesothelial cells in serous effusions and to choose effective panel to the differential diagnosis. Totally 113 effusion cytology samples (80 pleural fluid, 30 ascitic, and 3 pericardial fluid) from(More)
While big data is becoming ubiquitous, interest in handling data stream at scale is also gaining popularity, which leads to the sprout of many distributed stream computing systems. However, complexity of stream computing and diversity of workloads expose great challenges to benchmark these systems. Due to lack of standard criteria, evaluations and(More)
