There are well-known side effects of chemotherapy and radiotherapy that are mainly related to the toxicity and impaired function of vital organs; however, the induction by these therapies of expression of several pro-metastatic factors in various tissues and organs that in toto create a pro-metastatic microenvironment is still, surprisingly, not widely… (More)
An automatic speech recognition system for Polish is demonstrated. A few layers of our system are different from popular approaches as a result of differences between Polish and En-glish languages.
The comparison of eight tools applicable to ligand-binding site prediction is presented. The methods examined cover three types of approaches: the geometrical (CASTp, PASS, Pocket-Finder), the physicochemical (Q-SiteFinder, FOD) and the knowledge-based (ConSurf, SuMo, WebFEATURE). The accuracy of predictions was measured in reference to the catalytic… (More)
Mobilization of stem cells in acute MI might signify the reparatory response. Aim of the Study. Prospective evaluation of correlation between CD34+CXCR4+ cell mobilization and improvement of LVEF and remodeling in patients with acute MI in 1-year followup. Methods. 50 patients with MI, 28 with stable angina (SAP), and 20 individuals with no CAD (CTRL).… (More)
The paper presents modifications of the well know Levenshtein metric. The suggested improvements result in better automatic speech recognition when Levenshtein metric is applied to compare words from a dictionary and speech recognition hypotheses. It allows to evaluate hypotheses and to choose the word which was actually spoken.
We demonstrate an automatic speech recognition system for Polish continuous speech. As most of the progress in the field is done for English, a few layers of our system are different from popular approaches in this field. These elements of our system could be successfully ported to other languages which share some features with Polish: the speech contains a… (More)
The biggest audiovisual database of Polish speech (and the only one made in HD quality) is presented. The paper shortly introduces description of similar databases for other languages and the technical specification of the AGH database. The challenges met during the process of building the database are discussed along with the planned applications. 1.… (More)
Very small embryonic-like cells (VSELs) are a population of stem cells residing in the bone marrow (BM) and several organs, which undergo mobilization into peripheral blood (PB) following acute myocardial infarction and stroke. These cells express markers of pluripotent stem cells (PSCs), such as Oct-4, Nanog, and SSEA-1, as well as early cardiac,… (More)
A dictionary of Polish implemented as a data base for automatic speech recognition is presented. The dictionary allows improvement of recognition by language modelling using statistics stored in the data base. The data currently kept in the database are presented as well.temu analizy mowy, połączonego z interfejsem głosowym . Dzięki rozpoznawaniu mowy
