This study was designed to mainly evaluate the anti-infective effects of perioperative probiotic treatment in patients receiving confined colorectal cancer (CRC) respective surgery. From November 2011 to September 2012, a total of 60 patients diagnosed with CRC were randomly assigned to receive probiotic (n = 30) or placebo (n = 30) treatment. The operative(More)
Contextual question answering (QA), in which users' information needs are satisfied through an interactive QA dialogue, has recently attracted more research attention. One challenge of engaging dialogue into QA systems is to determine whether a question is relevant to the previous interaction context. We refer to this task as rel-evancy recognition. In this(More)
Our previously published study documented a deregulation of the microRNA miR-150 in colorectal cancer. Here, we investigated further, in vitro and in vivo, the potential molecular mechanisms underlying the involvement of miR-150 in colorectal cancer, using the appropriate molecular biological methods. We report that miR-150 is a key regulator in the(More)
Colorectal cancer (CRC) remains one of the most common types of cancer and leading causes of cancer death worldwide. Although the introduction of cytotoxic drugs such as oxaliplatin, irinotecan and fluorouracil has improved the treatment of advanced CRC, the individual response to chemoradiotherapy varies tremendously from one patient to another. However,(More)
In this paper we report on the first phase of the speech corpus ISS_CSS collection for purposes of the CEST(Chinese-English speech translation) project. The corpus is intended to provide training material for speaker independent spontaneous Chinese speech recognition and automatic dialogue management over the telephone line. This paper describes the(More)
Colorectal carcinogenesis represents a sequential progression of normal colonic mucosa from adenoma to carcinoma. It has become apparent that miRNA deregulation contributes to the initiation and progression of colorectal cancer (CRC). These oncogenic or tumor-suppressive miRNAs interact with intracellular signaling networks and lead to alteration of cell(More)
