The aim of this study was to examine the individual and interactive associations of five non-synonymous variants of four DNA repair relevant genes (XRCC1, XRCC3, hOGG1, NQO1) with hypertension in a large northeastern Han Chinese population. This was a hospital-based study involving 1009 hypertensive patients and 756 normotensive controls. All five variants(More)

We assessed the association between 5 well-defined polymorphisms of the transforming growth factor-β1 (TGFB1) gene and coronary artery disease (CAD) among patients with hypertension from northeast China. All study participants were classified into patients with CAD (n = 679) and controls (n = 686) according to angiographic results. Genotyping was carried(More)
In this paper we present a novel gaze-based image retrieval application. The application is designed to be run on a dual monitor setup with a separate eye tracking device dedicated to each monitor. A source image is displayed on one monitor and the retrieved images are displayed on the second monitor. The system is completely gaze controlled. The user(More)
