PURPOSE Laparoscopy-assisted distal gastrectomy for early gastric cancer has gained acceptance and popularity worldwide. However, laparoscopy-assisted distal gastrectomy for advanced gastric cancer is still controversial. Therefore, we propose this prospective randomized controlled multi-center trial in order to evaluate the safety and feasibility of(More)
OBJECTIVES A phase II study was conducted to evaluate the response rate and safety of a combination regimen of docetaxel plus capecitabine in patients with advanced gastric cancer. PATIENTS AND METHODS Patients with previously untreated metastatic or recurrent measurable gastric cancer received i.v. docetaxel 75 mg/m2 on day 1 and oral capecitabine 1,000(More)
Economic data can be collected at a variety of frequencies. Typically, estimation is done using the coarser frequency data. This paper discusses how to combine data of different frequencies in estimating Vector Autoregressions (VAR's). The method is based on Bayesian Gibbs sampling using a missing data formulation for coarsely observed data. In an example,(More)
Economic data are collected at various frequencies but econometric estimation typically uses the coarsest frequency. This paper develops a Gibbs sampler for estimating VAR models with mixed and irregularly sampled data. The approach allows e¢ cient likelihood inference even with irregular and mixed frequency data. The Gibbs sampler uses simple conjugate(More)
In this paper, we present an alternative strategy for estimation of DSGE models when data is available at di¤erent time intervals. Our method is based on a data augmentation technique within Bayesian estimation of structural models and allows us to jointly use data at di¤erent frequencies. The bene…ts achieved via this methodology will be twofold,(More)
