Serum proteomic pattern diagnostics is an emerging paradigm employing low-resolution mass spectrometry (MS) to generate a set of biomarker classifiers. In the present study, we utilized a well-controlled ovarian cancer serum study set to compare the sensitivity and specificity of serum proteomic diagnostic patterns acquired using a high-resolution versus a(More)
Background New technologies for the detection of early-stage ovarian cancer are urgently needed. Pathological changes within an organ might be reflected in proteomic patterns in serum. We developed a bioinformatics tool and used it to identify proteomic patterns in serum that distinguish neoplastic from non-neoplastic disease within the ovary. Methods(More)
Surface-acoustic-wave (SAW) filters have been generally accepted as the best available choice for timing recovery in repeatered transoceanic fiber transmission systems operating in the range of 300 Mbit/s as well as in other digital transmission systems operating from approximately 0.1 to 1 or 2 Gbit/s. The SAW tqhnology is ready and reliable, filter sue is(More)
The new lightwave long-haul transmission systems typically use surface-acoustic-wave (SAW) filters for timing recovery, in place of the phase-locked loops favored in slower systems. We report here analytical studies of jitter phenomena allowed by two kinds of filter ripple. The ripple is capable of causing jitter to accumulate exponentially with the number(More)
Successful transmission of live (real time) video traffic is demonstrated using a prototype 100 Gb/s single-polarization differential quadrature phase shift keying (DQPSK) transmitter and receiver over an in-service 504 km link of the LambdaXtreme ® optical transport platform. Teaming with Verizon Business, we demonstrate the feasibility of upgrading an(More)
STUDY OBJECTIVE To compare the outcome of robotic-assisted laparoscopy vs conventional laparoscopy in the management of ovarian masses. DESIGN Retrospective cohort (Canadian Task Force classification II-3). SETTING Academic medical centre in the northeast United States. PATIENTS Retrospective medical record review of 71 consecutive patients with(More)
