Sparseness of user-to-item rating data is one of the major factors that deteriorate the quality of recommender system. To handle the sparsity problem, several recommendation techniques have been proposed that additionally consider auxiliary information to improve rating prediction accuracy. In particular, when rating data is sparse, document modeling-based(More)
The goal of RecSys Challenge 2015 [2] is: (1) to predict which user will end up with a purchase and if so, (2) to predict items that he/she will buy given click/purchase data provided by YOOCHOOSE. It is hard to achieve the goal of this Challenge because (1) the data does not contain user demographics information and it contains a lot of missing values and(More)
In addition to its role in regulation of salt transport in the kidney, the mineralocorticoid hormone aldosterone plays an independent role as a mediator of kidney injury and progression of chronic kidney disease. Studies in both animal models and patients have shown that aldosterone enhances the accumulation of extracellular matrix and progression of(More)
For the development of an intracellular cargo release system with mesoporous silica nanoparticles (MSN), gold nanoparticles coated with an amyloidogenic protein of α-synuclein were employed to prepare a protein-mediated nanocomposite into the "raspberry-type" particles-on-a-particle (PoP). The PoPs were successfully fabricated only at pH 4.4 by yielding the(More)
This study is aimed at characterizing medullary interstitial progenitor cells and to examine their capacity to induce tubular epithelial cell migration and proliferation. We have isolated a progenitor cell side population from a primary medullary interstitial cell line. We show that the medullary progenitor cells (MPCs) express CD24, CD44, CXCR7, CXCR4,(More)
To evaluate the effects of botulinum toxin type A (BTX-A) on mandible skeletal development by inducing muscle hypofunction. Four-week-old Sprague-Dawley rats (n=60) were divided into three groups: Group 1 animals served as controls and were injected with saline; Group 2 animals were injected unilaterally with BTX-A (the contralateral side was injected with(More)
For online product recommendation engines, learning highquality product embedding that captures various aspects of the product is critical to improving the accuracy of user rating prediction. In recent research, in conjunction with user feedback, the appearance of a product as side information has been shown to be helpful for learning product embedding.(More)
