PURPOSE Endometriosis, a largely benign, chronic inflammatory disease, is an independent risk factor for endometrioid and clear cell epithelial ovarian tumors. We aimed to identify plasma miRNAs that can be used to differentiate patients with endometriosis and ovarian cancer from healthy individuals. EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN We conducted a two-stage(More)
Immune effector cells integrate signals that define the nature and magnitude of the subsequent response. Experimental measures for immune cell-mediated lysis of tumors or virally infected targets rely on average responses of permeability or apoptotic changes within a population of targets. Here, we examined individual target cells following interaction with(More)
As high-throughput genomic technologies become accurate and affordable, an increasing number of data sets have been accumulated in the public domain and genomic information integration and meta-analysis have become routine in biomedical research. In this paper, we focus on microarray meta-analysis, where multiple microarray studies with relevant biological(More)
Ramoplanin is a lipopeptide antibiotic active against multi-drug-resistant, Gram-positive pathogens. Structurally, it contains a di-mannose moiety attached to the peptide core at Hpg11. The biosynthetic gene cluster of ramoplanin has already been reported and the assembly of the depsipeptide has been elucidated but the mechanism of transferring sugar moiety(More)

The objective of this chapter is to provide researchers who conduct in vivo fluorescence imaging studies with guidance in statistical aspects in the experimental design and data analysis of such studies. In the first half of this chapter, we introduce the key statistical components for designing a sound in vivo experiment. Particular emphasis is placed on(More)
BACKGROUND We have previously investigated neoadjuvant ipilimumab (ipi) for patients with locally/regionally advanced melanoma. That initial assessment of peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC) showed a significant increase in shared tumor associated antigen specific CD4(+) and CD8(+) T cell activation. We also observed a transient increase in(More)
The notion of amortisation has been integrated in quantitative bisimulations to make long-term behavioral comparisons between nondeterministic systems. In this paper, we present sound and complete proof systems for amortised strong probabilistic bisimulation and its observational congruence on a process algebra with probability and nondeterminism, and prove(More)
Ramoplanin and enduracidin are lipopeptide antibiotics effective against Gram-positive pathogens, which share close similarity in structure and biosynthetic pathway. Both compounds have chlorine atoms attached to 4-hydroxyphenylglycine (Hpg) but with different chlorinating sites and levels. Here, to probe the factor affecting the site and level of(More)
