We compared light-induced fluorescence (LIF) to nominal injected drug dose for predicting the depth of necrosis response to photodynamic therapy (PDT) in a murine tumor model. Mice were implanted with radiation-induced fibrosarcoma (RIF) and were injected with 0, 5, or 10 mg/kg Photofrin. 630-nm light (30 J/cm(2), 75 mW/cm(2)) was delivered to the tumor(More)
i ii ABSTRACT. In this senior thesis, we study different applications of linear programming. We first look at different concepts in linear programming. Then we give a study on some properties of polytopes. Afterwards we investigate in the Hirsch Conjecture and explore the properties of Santos' counterexample as well as a perturbation of this prismatoid. We(More)
We develop a new methodology for the fitting of non-stationary time series that exhibit non-linearity, asymmetry, local persistence and changes in location, scale and shape of the underlying distribution. In order to achieve this goal, we perform model selection in the class of piecewise stationary quantile autoregressive processes. The best model is(More)
