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)
W illiams et al. reported that women consuming Ն4 cups of coffee daily had higher adi-ponectin levels than those consuming lower amounts, regardless of the presence of diabetes (1). They found that regular coffee consumption has beneficial effects on low-grade systemic inflammation and type 2 diabetes incidence and that adi-ponectin may be involved in the(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)
Aim: Lipoprotein lipase (LPL) plays an important role in lipid metabolism. There is an association between the common S447X polymorphism in the LPL gene and high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C) levels, and some association between circulating HDL-C and adiponectin levels has been suggested; however, it is not known whether there is any association(More)

The phantom data set has 7 slices and 50 phases (total 350 images). Signals for AIF/VOF are embedded in slice #1. Tissue curves are embedded in slice #2 to #7, with different R(t) and CBV. Slice #1 AIF/VOF Slice #2, 3 R(t) = Exp. CBV = 2, 4 % Slice #4, 5 R(t) = Linear CBV = 2, 4 % Slice #6, 7 R(t) = Box CBV = 2, 4 % Fig 3. Example of CBF Maps Analyzed by(More)
