OBJECTIVE To estimate whether premenstrual syndrome (PMS) predicts common menopausal symptoms assessed longitudinally for 5 years among women in the transition to menopause. METHODS Data were obtained from a structured interview questionnaire, daily symptom ratings, and standard measures of depressive symptoms and sleep quality at 7 assessment periods in(More)
We present a general setting for structure-sequence comparison in a large class of RNA structures that unifies and generalizes a number of recent works on specific families on structures. Our approach is based on tree decomposition of structures and gives rises to a general parameterized algorithm, where the exponential part of the complexity depends on the(More)
This study compared the effects of different dentin surface treatments on the shear bond strengths of three adhesive systems. The adhesive systems included a resin-modified glass ionomer, Fuji II LC, and two dentin bonding systems, One Step and Scotchbond Multi-Purpose Plus. The surface treatments compared for each adhesive system were as follows: 1) the(More)
High-throughput technologies such as transcriptomics, proteomics, and metabolomics show great promise for the discovery of biomarkers for diagnosis and prognosis. Selection of the most promising candidates between the initial untargeted step and the subsequent validation phases is critical within the pipeline leading to clinical tests. Several statistical(More)
RNA molecules play major roles in all cell processes, and therefore have been subject to a great attention by biologists, biochemists and bioinformaticians in the recent years. From a computational optimization point of view, two interrelated major issues are on one hand the problem of structure prediction, and the problem of comparing two or several RNA(More)
