BACKGROUND Cigarette smoking is the most established risk factor, and genetic variants and/or gene promoter methylations are also considered to play an essential role in development of lung cancer, but the pathogenesis of lung cancer is still unclear. METHODS We collected the data of 150 cases and 150 age-matched and sex-matched controls on a(More)
BACKGROUND The prevalence of allergic sensitization has increased all over the world during last years and allergic sensitization may be related to genetic or environmental factors or to both. The objective of this study was to estimate the prevalence rates of allergic sensitization and assess the familial aggregation of allergic sensitization to(More)
INTRODUCTION The limited information for effects of serum trace elements and genetic polymorphisms on lung cancer is available. Based on a hospital based case-control study, the epidemiological questionnaires were completed by face to face interview, and the gene polymorphisms were tested by RFLP-PCR, and serum trace metals were measured by atomic(More)
Genetic factors were considered as one of the risk factors for lung cancer or other cancers. The aim of this work was to determine whether a genetic predisposition accounts for such familial aggregation of cancer among relatives of lung cancer probands. A case-control study was conducted in 800 case families identified by lung cancer patients (probands),(More)
The K-best detection algorithm with its diverse variations, which belong to a typical breadth-first type of quasi maximum-likelihood (ML) detection algorithms, have been close to implementation in realistic communications systems for its excellent bit error rate (BER) performance with reasonable computational complexity. However, when high-order modulation(More)
