Ž. Ž PLS-regression PLSR is the PLS approach in its simplest, and in chemistry and technology, most used form two-block. predictive PLS. PLSR is a method for relating two data matrices, X and Y, by a linear multivariate model, but goes beyond traditional regression in that it models also the structure of X and Y. PLSR derives its usefulness from its ability(More)
This article provides an overview of methods for reliability assessment of quantitative structure-activity relationship (QSAR) models in the context of regulatory acceptance of human health and environmental QSARs. Useful diagnostic tools and data analytical approaches are highlighted and exemplified. Particular emphasis is given to the question of how to(More)
This study investigates how scores on the Social Physique Anxiety Scale (SPAS) and the Sociocultural Attitudes Towards Appearance Questionnaire (SATAQ) relate to Bratman's orthorexia test (BOT) scores with regard to age, sex, and self-reported exercise frequency and duration in a sample of Swedish participants in fitness center activities. A total of 251(More)
Multivariate PCA- and PLS-models involving many variables are often difficult to interpret, because plots and lists of loadings, coefficients, VIPs, etc, rapidly become messy and hard to overview. There may then be a strong temptation to eliminate variables to obtain a smaller data set. Such a reduction of variables, however, often removes information and(More)
Intracellular neurofibrillary tangles is one of the most characteristic findings in Alzheimer's disease and senile dementia of Alzheimer type. In the present paper the authors show that intracellular accumulation of paired helical filaments is also a constant finding in the epithelial cells of the choroid plexus of aging persons. Like the neurofibrillary(More)
The expression of Interleukin-6 (IL-6) was studied in normal dorsal root ganglia (DRG) of juvenile and foetal humans, using immunohistochemistry and in situ hybridization techniques. There was an expression of IL-6-like immunoreactivity in more than 75% out of neuronal cells in the juvenile ganglia with a peripheral localization, and also an expression in(More)
Hepatocyte ("hyperplastic") nodules induced in the liver by initiation with diethylnitrosamine and selected by dietary 2-acetylaminofluorene plus partial hepatectomy ("resistant hepatocyte model") have a special pattern of biochemical behavior and metabolic activity different than that seen acutely with many xenobiotics including many promoting agents and(More)
Intracellular inclusions with staining properties of amyloid are very common in the aging choroid plexus epithelial cells. In many ways these inclusions show similarities with the neurofibrillary tangles, found in cerebral cortical neurons in patients with Alzheimer's dementia. We have now designed a purification method for choroid plexus amyloid and(More)
Nitrated polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (nitro-PAHs) are formed during incomplete combustion. Sources include emissions from vehicles (mainly diesel vehicles), heating, smoking, certain types of food processing, and incomplete combustion in general. Nitro-PAHs are direct-acting mutagens, and a number of them have been shown to be carcinogens.(More)
Short-term cultures from one synovial chondroma and three cases of synovial chondromatosis, a lesion for which no previous karyotypic information exists, were cytogenetically analysed. Whereas the chondroma displayed the relatively simple karyotype 46,XY,add(12)(q13),der(17)t(12;17)(q13;q21), more complex changes were found in the three cases of(More)
