BACKGROUND Previous differential coexpression analyses focused on identification of differentially coexpressed gene pairs, revealing many insightful biological hypotheses. However, this method could not detect coexpression relationships between pairs of gene sets. Considering the success of many set-wise analysis methods for microarray data, a coexpression(More)
We propose a novel method, called heterogeneous clustering ensemble (HCE), to generate robust clustering results that combine multiple partitions (clusters) derived from various clustering algorithms. The proposed method combines partitions of various clustering algorithms by means of newly-proposed the selection and the crossover operation of the genetic(More)
In modern data mining applications, clustering algorithms are among the most important approaches, because these algorithms group elements in a dataset according to their similarities, and they do not require any class label information. In recent years, various methods for ensemble selection and clustering result combinations have been designed to optimize(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS Epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG), the primary catechin in green tea, has anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidative properties. The aim of the current study was to characterize the impact of EGCG on lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-induced innate signaling in bone marrow-derived macrophages (BMMs) isolated from ICR mice. METHODS The effect of EGCG on(More)
PURPOSE Gastric cancer is heterogeneous clinically and histologically, and prognosis prediction by tumor grade or type is difficult. Although previous studies have suggested that frozen tissue-based molecular classifications effectively predict prognosis, prognostic classification on formalin-fixed tissue is needed, especially in early gastric cancer.

The incidence of brain metastasis from hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is expected to increase as a result of prolonged survival due to the recent advances in HCC treatment. However, there is no definite treatment strategy for brain metastasis from HCC mainly due to its rarity and dismal prognosis. To provide helpful recommendations in treatment of brain(More)
BACKGROUND Black tea has been shown to elicit anti-oxidant, anti-carcinogenic, anti-inflammatory and anti-mutagenic properties. In this study, we investigated the impact of black tea extract (BTE) on lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-induced NF-κB signaling in bone marrow derived-macrophages (BMM) and determined the therapeutic efficacy of this extract on colon(More)
MOTIVATION The small number of samples in many microarray experiments is a challenge for the correct identification of differentially expressed gens (DEGs) by conventional statistical means. Information from public microarray databases can help more efficient identification of DEGs. To model various experimental conditions of a public microarray database,(More)
BACKGROUNDS Expression of Livin, a member of the inhibitors of apoptosis protein family, is associated with tumor development and progression. The aims of this study were to evaluate whether Livin affects oncogenic biological behavior of colorectal cancer cells, and to document the relationship between its expression and various clinicopathological(More)
