Regularized Distance Metric Learning: Theory and Algorithm
TLDR
We show that with appropriate constraints, the generalization error of regularized distance metric learning could be independent from the dimensionality, making it suitable for handling high dimensional data. Expand

A New 2.5D Representation for Lymph Node Detection Using Random Sets of Deep Convolutional Neural Network Observations
TLDR
Automated Lymph Node (LN) detection is an important clinical diagnostic task but very challenging due to the low contrast of surrounding structures in Computed Tomography (CT) and sparsely distributed locations. Expand

α-Synuclein, a chemoattractant, directs microglial migration via H2O2-dependent Lyn phosphorylation
Significance α-Synuclein (α-syn) aggregates released from neurons activate microglia, leading to chronic neuroinflammation that causes damage to neurons in brains with synucleinopathies, such asExpand

A catalytic switch and the conversion of streptokinase to a fibrin-targeted plasminogen activator.
Plasminogen (Pg) activators such as streptokinase (SK) save lives by generating plasmin to dissolve blood clots. Some believe that the unique ability of SK to activate Pg in the absence of fibrinExpand

Recipient Toll-like receptors contribute to chronic graft dysfunction by both MyD88- and TRIF-dependent signaling
SUMMARY Toll-like receptors (TLRs) recognize specific molecular patterns derived from microbial components (exogenous ligands) or stressed cells (endogenous ligands). Stimulation of these receptorsExpand
