Sjögren's syndrome is a common autoimmune disease (affecting ∼0.7% of European Americans) that typically presents as keratoconjunctivitis sicca and xerostomia. Here we report results of a large-scale association study of Sjögren's syndrome. In addition to strong association within the human leukocyte antigen (HLA) region at 6p21 (Pmeta = 7.65 × 10(-114)),(More)
The auditory brainstem response (ABR) has become a routine clinical tool for hearing and neurological assessment. In order to pick out the ABR from the background EEG activity that obscures it, stimulus-synchronized averaging of many repeated trials is necessary, typically requiring up to 2000 repetitions. This number of repetitions can be very difficult,(More)
In this work, a method that combines wavelet transform and Bayesian network is developed for the classification of the auditory brainstem response (ABR). First the wavelet transform is applied to extract the important features of the ABR by thresholding and matching the wavelet coefficients. A Bayesian network is then built up based on several variables(More)
