Data preprocessing is widely recognized as an important stage in anomaly detection. This paper reviews the data preprocessing techniques used by anomaly-based network intrusion detection systems (NIDS), concentrating on which aspects of the network traffic are analyzed, and what feature construction and selection methods have been used. Motivation for the(More)
Advances in gene modification and viral therapy have led to the development of a variety of vectors in several viral families that are capable of replication specifically in tumor cells. Because of the nature of viral delivery, infection, and replication, this technology, oncolytic virotherapy, may prove valuable for treating cancer patients, especially(More)
One of the challenges of oncolytic virotherapy is the inability to easily track or monitor virus activity during treatment. Here we describe the construction and functional characterization of Ad/hTC-GFP-E1, an oncolytic virus whose transgenes GFP and E1A are both under the control of a synthetic promoter (hTC). This promoter consists of sequences from the(More)
Tumor necrosis factor-related apoptosis-inducing ligand (TRAIL) gene therapy and oncolytic adenovirotherapy have been investigated extensively in xenografic human tumor models established in immunocompromised nude mice. However, the effects of these therapies on syngeneic murine tumors in immunocompetent settings were not well documented. We hypothesized(More)
Isolated limb perfusion (ILP) is a limb salvage surgical modality used to deliver chemotherapy and biologic agents to locally advanced and recurrent extremity soft tissue sarcoma (STS), and may be readily tailored for delivery of gene therapy. We set out to test the feasibility of delivering AdFLAGp53 (replication incompetent adenovirus bearing FLAG-tagged(More)
We recently identified two compounds of 5-benzylidene-2-phenylimino-1,3-thiazolidin-4-one (BPT) analog, 5-(4-methylbenzylidene)-2-phenylamino-1,3-thiazolidin-4-one (MMPT) and 5-(2,4-dihydroxybenzylidene)-2-phenylimino-1,3-thiazolidin-4-one (DBPT), that can effectively induce apoptosis in cancer cells but not in normal cells, independently of P-glycoprotein(More)
The efficient and effective Anomaly detection system essentially requires identifying the behavior analysis for each activity. For this purpose unsupervised techniques are used but the accuracy and reliability of them results depend on the data set which have used for modeling. It is essential to identify important input features, missing values,(More)
BACKGROUND Resistance can be overcome by modified adenoviral vectors containing an Arg-Gly-Asp (RGD) sequence. We constructed an adenoviral vector with RGD-modified fibers, expressing the TRAIL gene from the human telomerase reverse transcriptase (hTERT) promoter (designated Ad/TRAIL-F/RGD), and evaluated its antitumor activity in vitro and in vivo.
