In this paper, we propose Genetic Algorithms (GAS) based clustering method, which dynamically adjusts the fuzzy sets to provide maximum profit within an interval of user specified minimum support ,values. This is achieved by tuning lhe base values of the membership functions for each quantitative attribute so as to maximize the sum of large iicnaetb in a(More)
Blood-brain barrier (BBB) constituted primarily by the capillary endothelial cells functions to maintain a constant environment for the brain, by preventing or slowing down the passage of a variety of blood-borne substances, such as serum proteins, chemical compounds, ions, and hormones from the circulation into the brain parenchyma. Various diseases such(More)
Data mining and knowledge discovery from databases are researches in which unknown associations automatically discovered from big amounts of data. Advances in data collection, data distribution and related technologies caused researchers to investigate current data mining algorithms from a new point of view. This is personal privacy. With the increase in(More)
The study aimed to investigate the intermediate-term effects of transcatheter atrial septal defect (ASD) closure on cardiac remodeling in children and adult patients. Between December 2003 and February 2009, 117 patients (48 males, 50 adults) underwent transcatheter ASD closure with the Amplatzer septal occluder (ASO). The mean age of the patients was 15(More)
Physical training is known to induce oxidative stress in individuals subjected to intense exercise. In this study, we investigated plasma malondialdehyde (MDA) levels and erythrocyte superoxide dismutase (SOD) activity of 25 young male footballers and a control group of similar age. Red blood cell (RBC) count, haemoglobin (Hb) and haematocrit (Hct) values,(More)
Gamma glutamyl transferase (GGT) is a new marker for predicting myocardial infarction, stroke, cardiac death and inflammation. There is also a strong relationship between Obstructive Sleep Apnea Syndrome (OSAS) and cardiovascular disease. This study was designed to investigate the association between serum GGT levels and cardiovascular disease in patients(More)
Magnesium probably protects brain tissue against the effects of cerebral ischemia, brain injury and stroke through its actions as a calcium antagonist and inhibitor of excitatory amino acids. The effects of magnesium sulfate on cerebrovascular permeability to a dye, Evans blue, were studied during insulin-induced hypoglycemia with hypothermia in rats.(More)
It is not an easy task to know a priori the most appropriate fuzzy sets that cover the domains of quantitative attributes for fuzzy association rules mining, simply because characteristics of quantitative data are in general unknown. Besides, it is unrealistic that the most appropriate fuzzy sets can always be provided by domain experts. Motivated by this,(More)
