BACKGROUND Improvements in the response rates to chemotherapy would represent an important advancement in the care of patients with metastatic prostate cancer. There is accumulating evidence that Survivin, a member of the inhibitor of apoptosis (IAP) family, is associated with both cancer progression and drug resistance. The purpose of this study is to(More)
PURPOSE To examine the prognostic value of nuclear and cytoplasmic survivin expression in men with locally advanced prostate cancer who were enrolled in Radiation Therapy Oncology Group (RTOG) protocol 8610. METHODS AND MATERIALS RTOG 8610 was a Phase III randomized study comparing the effect of radiotherapy plus short-term androgen deprivation with(More)
Four Phase III trials demonstrating higher prostate-specific antigen control rates in prostate cancer patients treated with higher doses of radiation have changed the standard of care. Emerging on-line technologies, improved imaging and computer algorithms, combined with an improved understanding of how best to apply them, have allowed radiation oncologists(More)
This paper investigates the different attributes used in evaluating faculty performance to come up with a regression model that predicts faculty performance. The main objective of this paper is to develop a model for predicting faculty performance and design a framework of data mining implementing ETL. The outcome of this research could be used as basis in(More)
