Semantics exhibits diversity in the real world, mental abstraction world, document world, and machine world. Studying mappings between different forms of semantics helps unveil the uniformity in the diversity. This article investigates the mappings between three typical semantic models: the Web ontology language (OWL), relational database model, and(More)
Semantics shows diversity in real world, document world, mental abstraction world and machine world. Transformation between semantics pursues the uniformity in the diversity. The Resource Space Model (RSM) is a semantic data model for organizing resources based on the classification semantics that human often use in understanding the real world. The design(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the analgesic effect, safety, and cost-effectiveness of controlled-release oxycodone (CRO) to control postoperative pain in patients with liver cancer who are undergoing transarterial chemoembolization. MATERIALS AND METHODS This randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, prospective clinical study received institutional review(More)
Oral cancer, one of the six most common human cancers with an overall 5-year survival rate of <50%, is often not diagnosed until it has reached an advanced stage. The aim of the current study is to explore salivary metabolomics as a disease diagnostic and stratification tool for oral cancer and leukoplakia and evaluate the potential of salivary metabolome(More)
To explore circulation levels of osteopontin (OPN), tumour necrosis factor (TNF)-alpha and transforming growth factor (TGF)-beta1 from patients with oral lichen planus (OLP) for clinical application. A group of 26 subjects with OLP were compared with 26 sex- and age-matched control (NC) subjects. Local lesion tissue was examined for OPN by(More)
Oral leukoplakia (OL) is the best-known potentially malignant disorder. A new binary system to grade dysplasia was proposed by WHO, but the biological significance in predicting malignant transformation risk is unknown. The objective of this study is to estimate the rate of malignant transformation in a long-term follow-up cohort, explore the usefulness of(More)
BACKGROUND Oral lichen planus (OLP) is a potentially malignant disorder associated with an increased risk for oral cancer. The purpose of this study was to determine protein expression of podoplanin and ATP-binding cassette, G2 subfamily (ABCG2) in patients with OLP and evaluate their use as biomarkers for OLP malignant transformation risk. METHODS(More)
Oral cancer is the sixth most common human cancer, with a high morbidity rate and an overall 5-year survival rate of less than 50%. It is often not diagnosed until it has reached an advanced stage. Therefore, an early diagnostic and stratification strategy is of great importance for oral cancer. In the current study, urine samples of patients with oral(More)
Glutathione S-transferase P1 (GSTP1) gene Ile105Val polymorphism has been suggested to be involved in the development of cancer. However, the results from the studies regarding the association between GSTP1 Ile105Val polymorphism and hepatocellular carcinoma risk have been inconsistent. Thus, we performed a meta-analysis to investigate the association.(More)
