The singular points of fingerprints, namely, core and delta, are important referential points for the classification of fingerprints. Several conventional approaches such as the Poincaré index method have been proposed; however, these approaches cannot achieve the reliable detection of poor-quality fingerprints. In this paper, we propose a new core and(More)

The Ewing sarcoma breakpoint region 1 (EWSR1) gene is known to fuse with various partner genes to promote the development of the Ewing sarcoma family of tumors and other sarcomas. In contrast, the association of EWSR1 chimeric fusion genes with leukemia has rarely been reported. We identified a novel EWSR1-associated chimeric fusion gene in a patient with(More)
CCAAT/enhancer-binding protein alpha (CEBPA) mutations are a favorable prognostic factor in adult acute myeloid leukemia (AML) patients; however, few studies have examined their significance in pediatric AML patients. Here we examined the CEBPA mutation status and clinical outcomes of pediatric AML patients treated in the AML-05 study. We found that 47(More)
