Late-onset Alzheimer's disease (LOAD) is a multifactorial disease with the potential involvement of multiple genes. Four recent genome-wide association studies (GWAS) have found variants showing significant association with LOAD on chromosomes 6, 10, 11, 12, 14, 18, 19, and on the X chromosome. We examined a total of 12 significant SNPs from these studies(More)
BACKGROUND Reports of primary intraabdominal synovial sarcomas are extremely rare. METHODS A literature review using PubMed was performed. A retrospective review of the one known case at our institution was completed. RESULTS Even the most experienced pathologists report that synovial sarcomas can be very difficult to diagnose correctly. One cytogenic(More)
BACKGROUND Intrahepatic arterial aneurysms are rare and typically related to trauma, transplantation, iatrogenic injury, or infection. They account for approximately 10% of clinically significant hemobilia. CASE REPORT We present the case of a 49-year-old man with an intraparenchymal hepatic artery aneurysm that presented as massive hemobilia following a(More)
Collision detection is fundamental to many kinds of simulation. Any simulation that needs to model interactions between solid objects needs some form of collision detection. However, despite this need, a general-purpose collision detection framework has not been developed for the High Level Architecture (HLA). This research paper proposes a framework which(More)
