BACKGROUND AND AIM The roles of self-efficacy and self-monitoring as proximal predictors of dental flossing frequency are studied in the context of an oral health intervention. MATERIALS AND METHODS A study among 287 university students, aged 19 to 26 years, compared an intervention group that received a brief self-regulatory treatment, with a passive and(More)
3-Hydroxypyridine-4-one derivatives have shown good inhibitory activity against bacterial strains. In this work we report the application of MOLMAP descriptors based on empirical physicochemical properties with genetic algorithm partial least squares (GA-PLS) and counter propagation artificial neural networks (CP-ANN) methods to propose some novel(More)

––Graphs are currently becoming more important in modeling and demonstrating information. In the recent years, graph mining is becoming an interesting field for various processes such as chemical compounds, protein structures, social networks and computer networks. One of the most important concepts in graph mining is to find frequent subgraphs. The major(More)
Human cystic echinococcosis (HCE), a zoonotic infection of the larval stage of Echinococcus granulosus, has high effect on public health in human population all around the world.
