BACKGROUND Neoadjuvant chemotherapy improves survival of locally advanced gastric cancer patients. However, benefit is limited and the best regimen remains controversial. OBJECTIVES Our primary objective of this prospective, multicenter phase 2 study was to evaluate the pathological complete response rate (PCR) with 2 cycles of docetaxel and capecitabine.(More)
This paper proposes a tracking system for outdoor augmented reality (AR) on handheld devices based on an integration of vision tracking and on-device sensor measurement. To deal with the unpredictable and complex visual information in an outdoor environment, two tracking schemes are proposed for both near-field and far-field tracking scenarios. A(More)
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the safety and activity of fixed-dose capecitabine in patients with advanced colorectal cancer and to correlate pretreatment plasma concentrations of homocysteine and serum and red cell folate with toxicity. Patients received capecitabine 2000 mg (4 x 500 mg tablets) twice daily on days 1-14 every 3 weeks. They were(More)
5-Fluorouracil (5-FU) and its pro-drug Capecitabine have been widely used in treating colorectal cancer. However, not all patients will respond to the drug, hence there is a need to develop reliable early predictive biomarkers for 5-FU response. Here, we report a novel potentially functional Single Nucleotide Polymorphism (pfSNP) approach to identify SNPs(More)
Stroke patients or victims who have been involved in serious accidents often suffer from impaired hand-eye coordination and muscle dexterity. Products, such as nine-hole pegboards, have been designed to help rehabilitate various skills, e.g., perceptual accuracy and finger dexterity. Patients who do not have sufficient muscle strength would not be able to(More)
