Association-rule mining has heretofore relied on the condition of high support to do its work efficiently. In particular, the well-known a-priori algorithm is only effective when the only rules of interest are relationships that occur very frequently. However, there are a number of applications, such as data mining, identification of similar web documents,(More)
BACKGROUND The clock molecule plays major roles in circadian rhythmicity and regulating lipid and glucose metabolism in peripheral organs. Disruption of the circadian rhythm can lead to cardiometabolic disorders. The existence of small dense low-density lipoprotein (sdLDL) in the circulation, an abnormality of lipid metabolism, in part associated with(More)
Dynamic Miss-Counting algorithms are proposed, which find all implication and similarity rules with confidence pruning but without support pruning. To handle data sets with a large number of columns, we propose dynamic pruning techniques that can be applied during data scanning. DMC counts the numbers of rows in which each pair of columns disagree instead(More)
BACKGROUND Limited studies have shown inconsistent data about the association between the uncoupling protein 1 (UCP1) gene A-3826G polymorphism and high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol levels. The present study investigated the association between the A-3826G polymorphism and low HDL-cholesterolemia in non-obese and obese subjects. METHODS(More)
PURPOSE A salt preference questionnaire may be a convenient and cost-effective method for predicting salt intake; however, the influence of salt preference on daily salt intake is unclear. This study aimed at revealing the effectiveness of the salt preference question in determining the daily salt intake in primary care outpatients. PATIENTS AND METHODS(More)
BACKGROUND Residents of rural communities are often more socially connected compared to urban dwellers. Using family and community support to motivate health behavior change may be useful in rural settings. The objective of this study was to pilot a salt reduction (SR) intervention for rural albuminuria patients using support from family and neighborhood(More)
