We have shown previously that the VEGF system plays a crucial role in regulation of tumor angiogenesis during the development of estrogen-induced prolactin-secreting pituitary tumors in Fisher 344 rats. Studies also suggested that both endothelial and non-endothelial cells expressed VEGF. However, several questions concerning the VEGF signals in regulation(More)
We present a case of spindle cell oncocytoma (SCO) of the adenohypophysis in a 70-year-old Vietnamese male. The patient was admitted to Cho Ray Hospital after suffering from headache and visual disturbance for 6 months. Clinicians detected a 60×55×45 mm(3) mass located in the suprasellar-sellar region. Histopathologically, the resected tumor was composed of(More)
OBJECTIVES The presence of low grade dysplasia (LGD) within Barrett's esophagus (BE) has a multitude of ramifications. Identification of markers that could risk stratify LGD would be of great clinical benefit. We aimed to prospectively evaluate the prognosis of the immunohistochemical overexpression of p53 protein in BE colocalized to LGD. METHODS(More)
In this paper, we partition the association rule set into disjoint equivalence rule classes. Each of them contains rules having the same confidence and then it is split into basic and consequence rule sets based on the order relation on it. Basic rule set, which includes minimal elements according to this relation, is directly found by our algorithm(More)
BRAF V600E mutation, RET rearrangements, and RAS mutations are the common genetic alterations in differentiated thyroid carcinomas derived from follicular thyroid cells. However, the relationship between these alterations and iodine intake is still controversial. To clarify the influence of iodine intake on the occurrence of differentiated thyroid(More)
An infobox of a Wikipedia article generally contains key facts in the article and is organized as attribute-value pairs. Infoboxes not only allow readers to rapidly gather the most important information about some aspects of the articles in which they appear, but also provide a source for many knowledge bases derived from Wikipedia. However, not all the(More)
Wikipedia has grown fast and become a major information resource for users as well as for many knowledge bases derived from it. However it is still edited manually while the world is changing rapidly. In this paper, we propose a method to detect outdated attribute values in Wikipedia infoboxes by using facts extracted from the general Web. Our proposed(More)
Solitary fibrous tumour is a soft tissue tumour composed of a subset of fibroblast-like cells and frequently needs immunohistochemical staining for final diagnosis. Epithelioid angiomyolipoma is a variant of angiomyolipoma but characterized by the absence of both adipocytes and abnormal blood vessels. We introduce a very rare case with the combination of(More)
