Using a vector autoregression (VAR) model, we study how investor sentiment and near-term stock returns interact each other. We find that both past market returns and sentiment are important determinants of investor sentiment. Sentiment has predictive power for near-term future stock returns. Our results suggest asset pricing models should consider the role(More)
Recent diagnostic procedure advances have considerably improved early lung cancer detection. However, the invasive, unpleasant, and inconvenient nature of current diagnostic procedures limits their application. There is a great need for novel noninvasive biomarkers for early lung cancer diagnosis. In the present study, we aimed to determine whether microRNA(More)
microRNAs have been implicated in regulating diverse cellular pathways. Although there is emerging evidence that some microRNAs can function as oncogenes or tumor suppressors, the role of microRNAs in mediating cancer progression remains unexplored. And whether expression levels of a panel of biologically relevant microRNAs can be used as prognostic or(More)
The problem of divisible load scheduling in network based heterogeneous distributed systems is addressed in this paper, where a general platform is considered, and the communication is in non-blocking message receiving mode, moreover, the communication speeds, computation speeds, start-up overheads and workload size are arbitrary. To solve the problem(More)
Many-objective optimization problems involving a large number (more than four) of objectives have aroused extensive attention. It is known that problems with a high number of objectives cause additional difficulties in visualization of the objective space, stagnation in search process and high computational cost. In this paper, a special class of many(More)
BACKGROUND The purpose of this study was to clarify the treatment value of zoledronic acid (ZA) and/or strontium-89 (Sr-89) in patients with non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) with asymptomatic bone metastases (BMs). PATIENTS AND METHODS Eligible patients were those with resectable NSCLC and asymptomatic BMs. These candidates were randomized into 4(More)
BACKGROUND The role of tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-α) in cancer is complex with both apoptotic and anti-apoptotic roles proposed. However the mechanism is not clear. In the study, we designed to investigate the effect of TNF-α on the activation and expression of nuclear factor kappa B (NF-κB)/p65/SLUG/PUMA/Bcl-2 levels in human lung cancer A549 cell(More)
OBJECTIVES A meta-analysis was conducted to summarize evidence from prospective cohort studies about the association of fruit and vegetable consumption with the risk of lung cancer. MATERIALS AND METHODS Pertinent studies were identified by a search of Embase and PubMed databases to October 2014. A random-effects model was used to combine study-specific(More)
A novel method was developed for the determination of captan, folpet, and captafol in apples by dispersive liquid-liquid microextraction (DLLME) coupled with gas chromatography-electron capture detection (GC-ECD). Some experimental parameters that influence the extraction efficiency, such as the type and volume of the disperser solvents and extraction(More)
For the purpose of developing novel diagnostic pharmaceuticals of 99mTc-labeled small-size complexes, six novel complexes of 99mTc-2-hydroxybenzaldehyde-amino acid Schiff bases were designed and synthesized, and their biodistributions in mice were investigated. All the compounds were obtained in radiochemical yields higher than 90% at optimal conditions,(More)
