All tools in the DAVID Bioinformatics Resources aim to provide functional interpretation of large lists of genes derived from genomic studies. The newly updated DAVID Bioinformatics Resources consists of the DAVID Knowledgebase and five integrated, web-based functional annotation tool suites: the DAVID Gene Functional Classification Tool, the DAVID(More)
Due to the complex and distributed nature of biological research, our current biological knowledge is spread over many redundant annotation databases maintained by many independent groups. Analysts usually need to visit many of these bioinformatics databases in order to integrate comprehensive annotation information for their genes, which becomes one of the(More)
BACKGROUND Ipilimumab is a fully human monoclonal antibody that binds cytotoxic T-lymphocyte antigen 4 to enhance antitumour immunity. Our aim was to assess the use of ipilimumab after radiotherapy in patients with metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer that progressed after docetaxel chemotherapy. METHODS We did a multicentre, randomised,(More)
In computer vision, the bag-of-visual words image representation has been shown to yield good results. Recent work has shown that modeling the spatial relationship between visual words further improves performance. Previous work extracts higher-order spatial features exhaustively. However, these spatial features are expensive to compute. We propose a novel(More)
PURPOSE Brivanib is a dual inhibitor of vascular-endothelial growth factor and fibroblast growth factor receptors that are implicated in the pathogenesis of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). Our multinational, randomized, double-blind, phase III trial compared brivanib with sorafenib as first-line treatment for HCC. PATIENTS AND METHODS Advanced HCC(More)
Topic models from the text understanding literature have shown promising results in unsupervised image categorization and object localization. Categories are treated as topics, and words are formed by vector quantizing local descriptors of image patches. Limitations of topic models include their weakness in localizing objects, and the requirement of a(More)
BACKGROUND BC RNAs and the fragile X mental retardation protein (FMRP) are translational repressors that have been implicated in the control of local protein synthesis at the synapse. Work with BC1 and Fmr1 animal models has revealed that phenotypical consequences resulting from the absence of either BC1 RNA or FMRP are remarkably similar. To establish(More)
PURPOSE Brivanib is a selective dual inhibitor of vascular endothelial growth factor and fibroblast growth factor receptors implicated in tumorigenesis and angiogenesis in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). An unmet medical need persists for patients with HCC whose tumors do not respond to sorafenib or who cannot tolerate it. This multicenter, double-blind,(More)
The anatomy of the mesenteric system and the hepatic arterial bed has been demonstrated to have a high degree of variation. This is important when considering pre-surgical planning, catheterization, and trans-arterial hepatic therapies. Although anatomical variants have been well described, the characterization and understanding of regional hepatic(More)
This paper presents FICAS, a distributed data-flow infrastructure for composing software services into megaservices. We discuss the basic features of FICAS that enable the distribution of data-flows within megaservices. An autonomous service access protocol, ASAP, is defined to enforce the explicit separation of control-flows from dataflows of software(More)
