Saliva proteins may protect older people from influenza, however, it is often noted that hospitalizations and deaths after an influenza infection mainly occur in the elderly population living with chronic diseases, such as diabetes and cancer. Our objective was to investigate the expression level of the terminal α2-3- and α2-6-linked sialic acids in human(More)
The incidence of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is closely correlated with hepatitis B virus (HBV)-induced liver cirrhosis. Structural changes in the glycans of serum and tissue proteins are reliable indicators of liver damage. However, little is known about the alteration of liver glycopatterns during cirrhosis and tumor progression induced by HBV(More)
Support Vector Machine (SVM) training in a large data set involves a huge optimization problem to make SVM impractical even for a moderate data set. In this paper, we propose a method to speed SVM training by removing redundant data in the training data set. The training data set is clustered firstly. Then the Fisher Discriminant Ratio is used to find the(More)
The bone marrow microenvironment facilitates the proliferation and survival of leukemia cells, contributing to disease relapse. Bone marrow-derived mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are well known to promote cancer chemoresistance via soluble factors and cell adhesion. However, little is known about the effects of MSCs on the mitochondrial dynamics of T-cell(More)
