PURPOSE The clinical relevancy of the 7-subtype classification of triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC) reported by Lehmann and colleagues is unknown. We investigated the clinical relevancy of TNBC heterogeneity by determining pathologic complete response (pCR) rates after neoadjuvant chemotherapy, based on TNBC subtypes. EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN We revalidated(More)

As the energy costs have been increasing and more energy efficient measures have been promoted in the buildings sector, the reliability of energy consumption data has been attracting significant attention. For example, the reliability of the determination of energy savings depends on that of the energy consumption data, which has to be verified before and(More)
After ischemic stroke, the corresponding area contralateral to the lesion may partly compensate for the loss of function. We previously reported the remodeling of neuronal circuits in the contralateral somatosensory cortex (SSC) during the first week after infarction for processing bilateral information, resulting in functional compensation. However, the(More)
Because of its high rate of metastasis, inflammatory breast cancer (IBC) has a poor prognosis compared with non-inflammatory types of breast cancer (non-IBC). In a recent study, Lehmann and colleagues identified seven subtypes of triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC). We hypothesized that the distribution of TNBC subtypes differs between TN-IBC and(More)

Energy management processes such as accounting energy cost, finding overuse in energy, and determining savings from energy conservation programs largely depends on measured energy use data. Identifying and correcting faulty data properly would avoid over/underestimation in energy use and increase accuracy in further analysis. It allows engineers and(More)
The purpose of this study was to determine the association between body mass index (BMI) measurements (baseline BMI and changes in BMI during neoadjuvant systemic treatment [NST]) and clinical efficacy (pathologic complete response [pCR] rate and survival outcomes) in locally advanced breast cancer (LABC). We hypothesized that high baseline BMI and(More)
Circulating tumor cells (CTCs) are an independent prognostic factor for progression-free survival (PFS) and overall survival (OS) in patients with metastatic breast cancer. Inflammatory breast cancer (IBC) is one of the most aggressive forms of breast cancer. The prognostic value of a CTC count in newly diagnosed IBC has not been established. The aim of(More)
Quality controlled energy-use data is the foundation of energy performance evaluation for a building. The " Energy Balance Load " (E BL), a parameter derived from the first law of thermodynamics based on a whole-building energy analysis, has been theoretically proved to be an effective tool for verifying whole-building energy-use data (Shao and Claridge,(More)
