Generalization can be defined quantitatively and can be used to assess the performance of principal component analysis (PCA). The generalizability of PCA depends on the number of principal components retained in the analysis. We provide analytic and test set estimates of generalization. We show how the generalization error can be used to select the number(More)
Independent component analysis (ICA) has found a fruitful application in the analysis of functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) data. A principal advantage of this approach is its applicability to cognitive paradigms for which detailed a priori models of brain activity are not available. ICA has been successfully utilized in a number of exciting fMRI(More)
This paper presents hierarchical probabilistic clustering methods for unsupervised and supervised learning in datamining applications, where supervised learning is performed using both labeled and unlabeled examples. The probabilistic clustering is based on the previously suggested Generalizable Gaussian Mixture model and is extended using a modified(More)
AIMS The objective was to explore differences in lipid-lowering drug (LLD) prescribing in Italy and Denmark. METHODS We used two geographical areas with computerized drug prescription records in defined populations, one in Funen, Denmark with 500 000 inhabitants, the other in Bologna, Italy with 400 000 inhabitants. Prescriptions for patients who had(More)
AIMS Several studies have found that compliance with lipid-lowering drug (LLD) treatment is low. However, the results of these studies were based on crude measures of compliance. The aim of this study was to describe compliance with statin treatment by analysing prescription patterns on an individual level in a population-based prescription database over a(More)
A new method for the simultaneous quantitation of tacrine and the three metabolites, 1-hydroxytacrine (velnacrine, maleate), 2-hydroxytacrine and 4-hydroxytacrine, in human plasma and urine has been developed. The method was based on simple one-step liquid-liquid extraction with ethyl acetate followed by isocratic, reversed-phase high-performance liquid(More)
IMPORTANCE People with severe mental illness (SMI), including schizophrenia and bipolar disorder, have excess rates of cardiovascular disease (CVD). Risk prediction models validated for the general population may not accurately estimate cardiovascular risk in this group. OBJECTIVE To develop and validate a risk model exclusive to predicting CVD events in(More)
Recovery has come to mean living a life beyond mental illness, and recovery orientation is policy in many countries. The aims of this study were to investigate what staff say they do to support recovery and to identify what they perceive as barriers and facilitators associated with providing recovery-oriented support. Data collection included ten focus(More)
Between one third and half of all consultations result in a prescription, and general practitioners are responsible for more than 80 per cent of the use of reimbursed prescription drugs in Denmark. Good prescribing habits imply the use of a limited number of drugs of which the doctor has a good knowledge. The risk of inappropriate prescribing is higher(More)
OBJECTIVE This study aimed to investigate the association of lipoprotein and triglyceride levels with all-cause mortality in a population free from diabetes and cardiovascular disease (CVD) at baseline. The European Guidelines on cardiovascular disease prevention state that in general total cholesterol (TC) should be < 5 mmol/L (190 mg/dL) and low-density(More)
