Retinoblastoma (RB) is a malignant childhood tumor that results from loss or inactivation of both alleles of the RB1 gene. Human papillomavirus (HPV) DNA sequences have been found in RB tissue, suggesting a role of the viral infection with RB. We here describe a child with disseminated bilateral RB without familial history, who displayed a loss of material(More)
In this paper, a new method of classification and localization of reflectors, using the time-of-flight (TOF) data obtained from ultrasonic transducers, is presented. The method of classification and localization is based on Generalized Principal Component Analysis (GPCA) applied to the TOF values obtained from a sensor that contains four ultrasound emitters(More)
BACKGROUND Assessment of surgical risk in patients undergoing pulmonary resection is a fundamental goal for thoracic surgeons. Usually used risk indices do not predict the individual outcome. Neural networks (NN) are artificial intelligence software models that have been used for estimation of several prognostic situations. METHODS Ninety-six clinical and(More)
To operate over the full environmental range of light intensities, fly photoreceptors implement various adaptation mechanisms to continuously adjust their sensitivity. In addition, photoreceptor responses in flies are modulated by feedback from two classes of interneuron, large monopolar cells (LMC) and amacrine cells (AC), and axonal gap-junctions, which(More)
In this paper, we address the generation of semantic labels describing the headgear accessories carried out by people in a scene under surveillance, only using depth information obtained from a Time-of-Flight (ToF) camera placed in an overhead position. We propose a new method for headgear accessories classification based on the design of a robust(More)
In this work, we performed for the first time a proteomic approach to the processes induced by long-term potassium starvation in the halotolerant yeast Debaryomyces hansenii. The proteomic profile under this ionic stress conditions shows that important changes in gene expression take place as an adaptive response. We found a significant protein expression(More)
