BACKGROUND Inflammation plays an important role in the pathogenesis of ovarian cancer. This study sought to investigate the association between the preoperative c-reactive protein/albumin ratio (CRP/Alb) and oncological outcomes in ovarian cancer patients. METHODS Two hundred patients with histologically verified ovarian cancer between June 2006 and July(More)
The purpose of moving targets tracking is to determine the trajectories of moving targets, the key of which is to establish the corresponding relationships between the detected prospect targets and the tracked moving targets. The established corresponding relations are equivalent to the matching problem of target features in consecutive image frames. In the(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate the prevalence of erectile dysfunction (ED) in patients with chronic prostatitis/chronic pelvic pain syndrome (CP/CPPS) and explore the influence of UPOINT domains, National Institutes of Health-CP symptom index (NIH-CPSI) and other factors on ED prevalence. This was a prospective study of consecutive patients with(More)
In this work, molecular dynamics simulations were performed to study a carboxybetaine methacrylate (CBMA) hydrogel under various swelling states. The water content in this study ranged from 28% to 91% of the total weight of the hydrogel. Three transitions of the CBMA hydrogel were observed as the water content increased. The first transition occurs when the(More)
