A number of methods for temporal alignment, feature extraction and clustering of electrocardiographic signals are proposed. The ultimate aim of the paper is to find a method to automatically reduce the quantity of beats to examine in a long-term electrocardiographic signal, known as Holter signal, without loss of valuable information for the diagnosis.(More)
BACKGROUND Although heregulin and human epidermal growth factor receptor 3 (HER3) are frequently expressed at high levels in patients with head and neck cancer, their prognostic value remains unclear. The authors explored the prognostic significance of heregulin/HER3 expression in patients with oropharyngeal squamous cell carcinoma (OPSCC), taking into(More)
The EGFR monoclonal antibody cetuximab is the only approved targeted agent for treating head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC). Yet resistance to cetuximab has hindered its activity in this disease. Intrinsic or compensatory HER3 signaling may contribute to cetuximab resistance. To investigate the therapeutic benefit of combining MM-121/SAR256212, an(More)
This paper describes an approach to classify people, groups of people and luggage in the halls of an airport. The algorithm is included into a surveillance system which tracks and classifies objects and transmits this information to a higher computational level which fuses the information of several cameras covering overlapping areas. Two kind of features(More)
This paper describes the recognition of container code characters. The system has to deal with outdoor images which usually have damaged characters and obtain an answer in real time. Tophat transformation, equalization and adaptive cropping have been applied so as to reduce the noise and correct the inclusion box. The training corpus is artificially grown(More)
In this paper, a method to automatically extract the main information from a long-term electrocardiographic signal is presented. This method is based on techniques of pattern recognition applied to speech processing, like dynamic time warping, and trace segmentation. In order to fulfill this objective, a clustering process is applied to the set of beats(More)
The ErbB family of receptor tyrosine kinases comprises four members: epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR/ErbB1), human EGFR 2 (HER2/ErbB2), ErbB3/HER3, and ErbB4/HER4. The first two members of this family, EGFR and HER2, have been implicated in tumorigenesis and cancer progression for several decades, and numerous drugs have now been approved that target(More)
