DNA microarray-based gene expression profiles have been established for a variety of adult cancers. This paper addresses application of an artificial neural network (ANN) with leave-one-out testsing and 8-fold cross-validation for analyzing DNA microarray data to identify genes predictive of recurrence after prostatectomy. Among 725 genes screened for ANN(More)
BACKGROUND Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) is an extremely common disease of older men characterized by increased growth of prostatic epithelial and stromal cells. Previously we showed that senescent epithelial cells accumulate in the prostate of aging men and secrete interleukin-1 alpha (IL-1 alpha). IL-8 is also present at increased levels in BPH(More)
