BACKGROUND Low carbohydrate diets (LCDs) have been demonstrated to be effective tools for promoting weight loss and an improved plasma lipid profile. Such diets are often associated with increased meat consumption, either poultry, fish, and shellfish (PFS), which are generally high in polyunsaturated fat (PUFA) or red meats (RM), generally high in saturated(More)
BACKGROUND The heart and lungs are intimately linked anatomically and physiologically, and, as a result, heart failure (HF) patients often develop changes in pulmonary function. This study examined the prognostic value of resting pulmonary function (PF) in HF. METHODS AND RESULTS In all, 134 HF patients (enrolled from January 1, 1999 Through December 31,(More)
Cranberry is reported to have health benefits including prevention of urinary tract infections and other chronic diseases, due to the high content of polyphenols including flavonols and flavan-3-ols. The aim of this study was to determine the clearance of flavonol glycosides and flavan-3-ols and/or their metabolites in human urine. Ten healthy women(More)
In this paper, computed tomographic (CT) chest images were investigated to develop an automated system to discriminate lung cancer. These were done by analyzing Data recorded for patients with benign cancer, and also patients with malignant lung cancer were taken in account. The techniques for utilized feature extraction included features derived from(More)

In this paper, we represent computer aided diagnosis (CAD) system for recognition of lung cancer by analyzing CT images of chest. CAD system helps to improve the diagnostic performance of radiologists in their image interpretations. The proposed system relies on three stages mainly; firstly, the CT image is enhanced. Secondly, the lung and tumor are(More)
