A quality of life ancillary study was incorporated into the Survival and Ventricular Enlargement (SAVE) trial of captopril versus placebo among patients who survived an acute myocardial infarction with compromised ventricular functioning, but no overt heart failure. Assessments included patient symptoms, health perceptions, emotional, cognitive, social and(More)
In this paper, a high performance neural network for image segmentation is described which utilizes a Myrinet-based PC cluster to implement back propagation training on large data sets. Back propagation training of the very large neural network described here requires substantial computing resources that impact the time required for training. Work here(More)
Since 1960 there has been a rapid increase in the number of Native Americans attending college; but the rate of completion has been less than half that of whites. The research reported in this note begins an inquiry into the reasons for the lower rate of college success, indexed by GPA, among Native Americans than among their counterpart whites. Although(More)
Analysis of the interaction between an anticancer agent and the intact cell can provide important clues to cytotoxic determinants and mechanisms of drug selectivity and resistance. This can be very useful in optimally evaluating single and multidrug regimens in test systems, designing new agents, and evaluating drug metabolism and binding to cellular target(More)
This review, the first of an occasional series, tries to make sense of the concepts and uses of deep sequencing of polynucleic acids (DNA and RNA). Deep sequencing, synonymous with next-generation sequencing, high-throughput sequencing and massively parallel sequencing, includes whole genome sequencing but is more often and diversely applied to specific(More)
