BACKGROUND DNA sequence binding motifs for several important transcription factors happen to be self-overlapping. Many of the current regulatory site identification methods do not explicitly take into account the overlapping sites. Moreover, most methods use arbitrary thresholds and fail to provide a biophysical interpretation of statistical quantities. In(More)
Persistent Rel/nuclear factor-kappaB (NF-kappaB) activity is a hallmark of many human cancers, and the Rel proteins are implicated in leukemia/lymphomagenesis but the mechanism is not fully understood. Microarray analysis to identify transformation-impacting genes regulated by NF-kappaB's oncogenic v-Rel and c-Rel proteins uncovered that Rel protein(More)

Objective. Pain assessment is a major challenge in nonverbal patients in the intensive care unit (ICU). Recent studies suggest a relationship between the Bispectral Index (BIS) and nociceptive stimuli. This study was designed to examine changes in BIS in response to experimental noxious stimuli. Methods. Thirty participants under general anesthesia were in(More)
UNLABELLED The Critical-Care Pain Observation Tool (CPOT) is a behavioral scale recommended by experts for pain assessment in critically ill patients unable to verbally communicate. The main goal of this study was to determine the relationship between self-reports of pain intensity and the CPOT score, and establish the sensibility and the specificity of the(More)
PURPOSE Pain behaviors such as grimacing and muscle rigidity are recommended for pain assessment in nonverbal populations. However, these behaviors may not be appropriate for critically ill patients with a traumatic brain injury (TBI) depending on their level of consciousness (LOC). This study aimed to validate the use of behaviors for assessing pain of(More)
Pain is experienced by many critically ill patients. Although the patient's self-report represents the gold-standard measure for pain, many patients are unable to communicate in the ICU. In this commentary, we discuss the study findings comparing three objective scales for the assessment of pain in non-verbal patients and the importance of the tool(More)
Behavioral indicators are strongly recommended for pain assessment in nonverbal patients. Although pain-related behaviors have been studied in critically ill patients, those with a traumatic brain injury (TBI) have been either excluded or underrepresented. Because these patients also likely experience pain, research is urgently needed to generate knowledge(More)
Background. Many critically ill patients with a traumatic brain injury (TBI) are unable to communicate. While observation of behaviors is recommended for pain assessment in nonverbal populations, they are undetectable in TBI patients who are under the effects of neuroblocking agents. Aim. This study aimed to validate the use of vital signs for pain(More)
BACKGROUND Approximately two thirds of adults undergoing cardiac surgery suffer from moderate to severe postoperative pain. Assisting patients with pain management is therefore critical to prevent its negative consequences. Information technologies have become part of our lifestyle and can facilitate the implementation of interventions to manage pain in a(More)
