As one of the fundamental features, color provides useful information and plays an important role for face recognition. Generally, the choice of a color space is different for different visual tasks. How can a color space be sought for the specific face recognition problem? To address this problem, we propose a sparse tensor discriminant color space (STDCS)(More)
OBJECTIVE Atherosclerosis (AS) is regarded as the major cause of disability and death in diabetic patients. However, its precise pathogenesis is not entirely clear. Recent genome-wide association studies (GWAS) have revealed AS is related to some epigenetic changes. This study aimed to investigate the possible associations of miR-146a and transcriptional(More)
OBJECTIVE This study aimed to systematically evaluate the quality of clinical practice guidelines (CPGs) and to compare their recommendations for managing subclinical Cushing's syndrome (SCS) to assist practitioners in making rapid clinical decisions. DESIGN AND METHODS SCS management guidelines were retrieved from electronic databases. The Appraisal of(More)
Due to the fact that many objects in the real world can be naturally represented as tensors, tensor subspace analysis has become a hot research area in pattern recognition and computer vision. However, existing tensor subspace analysis methods cannot provide an intuitionistic nor semantic interpretation for the projection matrices. In this paper, we propose(More)
Human action can be naturally represented as multidimensional arrays known as tensors. In this paper, a simple and efficient algorithm based on tensor subspace learning is proposed for human action recognition. An action is represented as a 3th-order tensor first, then tensor principal component analysis is used to reduce dimensionality and extract the most(More)
The subspace transformation plays an important role in the face recognition. LPP, which is so-called the Laplacianfaces, is a very popular manifold subspace transformation for face recognition, and it aims to preserve the local structure of the samples. Recently, many variants of LPP are proposed. LPP is a baseline in their experiments. LPP uses the(More)
One of the most serious complications of diabetes mellitus, which could lead to end-stage renal disease across all demographics, is 'diabetic kidney disease'. However, how diabetic kidney disease develops remains unclear. Studies conducted thus far suggest that a major factor in the origination and development of the disease occurs through histone(More)
Human THUMP domain-containing protein 1 (THUMPD1) is a specific adaptor protein that modulates tRNA acetylation through interaction with NAT10. Immunohistochemical analysis of 146 breast cancer specimens (82 triple-negative and 64 non-triple-negative cases) indicated THUMPD1 expression is higher in breast cancer tissues (60.9%, 89/146) than normal breast(More)
Purpose. The management of diabetic neuropathy (DN) can be challenging. There exist many guidelines for DN management, but the quality of these guidelines has not been systematically evaluated or compared. The objective of our study was to assess the quality of these guidelines as a step toward their future optimization, the development of international(More)
