The cumulus cells (CCs) enveloping antral and ovulated oocytes have been regarded as putative source of non-invasive markers of the oocyte developmental competence. A number of studies have indeed observed a correlation between CCs gene expression, embryo quality, and final pregnancy outcome. Here, we isolated CCs from antral mouse oocytes of known(More)
Literature-Based Discovery (LBD) is a technique that can be used in translational research to connect the very sparse and huge information available in scientific publications in order to extract new knowledge. This paper presents an LBD system based on the open discovery paradigm exploiting NLP techniques and UMLS medical concepts mapping, to provide a set(More)
We are fortunate to be living in an era of twin biomedical data surges: a burgeoning representation of human phenotypes in the medical records of our healthcare systems, and high-throughput sequencing making rapid technological advances. The difficulty representing genomic data and its annotations has almost by itself led to the recognition of a biomedical(More)
The i2b2 software is a widely adopted solution for secondary use of clinical data for clinical research, specifically designed for cohort identification. i2b2 is still lacking functionalities for data analysis. The aim of this work is to empower the i2b2 framework enabling clinical researchers to perform statistical analyses for accelerating the process of(More)
Precision medicine requires the tight integration of clinical and molecular data. To this end, it is mandatory to define proper technological solutions able to manage the overwhelming amount of high throughput genomic data needed to test associations between genomic signatures and human phenotypes. The i2b2 Center (Informatics for Integrating Biology and(More)
The INHERITANCE project, funded by the European Commission, is aimed at studying genetic or inherited Dilated cardiomyopathies (DCM) and at understanding the impact and management of the condition within families that suffer from heart conditions that are caused by DCMs. The project is supported by a number of advanced biomedical informatics tools,(More)
Information about medications is critical in improving the patients' safety and quality of care. Most adverse drug events are predictable from the known pharmacology of the drugs and many represent known interactions and are, therefore, likely to be preventable. However, most of this information is locked in free-text and, as such, cannot be actively(More)
A i2b2-Pavia pilot project has been recently activated at the Headache Centre of the C. Mondino Institute of Neurology, in Pavia, with the aim of investigating Medical Overuse Headaches. The software infrastructure so far implemented automatically extracts and integrates data coming from different sources into a repository purposely designed for(More)
