In this study, we propose a dynamical memory strategy to efficiently control the size of the support set in a kernel-based Perceptron learning algorithm. The method consists of two operations, namely, the incremental and decremental projections. In the incremental projection, a new presented instance is either added to the support set or discarded depending(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this article was to systematically review randomized controlled trials in which cold blood cardioplegia was compared with cold crystalloid cardioplegia for cardiac surgery. DESIGN Correlation studies were searched independently in the EMBASE, MEDLINE and Cochrane library databases. The primary endpoints of interest were(More)
INTRODUCTION There are no adequate data to determine whether intensity-modulated radiotherapy (IMRT) is superior to three-dimensional conformal radiotherapy (3DCRT) in the treatment of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). This meta-analysis was conducted to compare the clinical outcomes of IMRT and 3DCRT in the treatment of NSCLC. METHODS No exclusions(More)
In online learning with kernels, it is vital to control the size (budget) of the support set because of the curse of kernelization. In this paper, we propose two simple and effective stochastic strategies for controlling the budget. Both algorithms have an expected regret that is sublinear in the horizon. Experimental results on a number of benchmark data(More)
GATA transcription factors perform conserved and essential roles during animal development, including germ-layer specification, hematopoiesis, and cardiogenesis. The evolutionary history and the changes in selection pressures following duplication of the six GATA family members in vertebrates have not been completely understood. Recently, we explored(More)
Clear-cell renal cell carcinoma (ccRCC) is one of the most common types of kidney cancer in adults; however, its causes are not completely understood. The study was designed to filter the key pathways and genes associated with the occurrence or development of ccRCC, acquaint its pathogenesis at gene and pathway level, to provide more theory evidence and(More)
Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), known to play an important role in vascular homeostasis, vascular integrity and angiogenesis, is little known about the evolutionary relationship of its five members especially the role of gene duplication and natural selection in the evolution of the VEGF family. In this study, seventy-five full-length cDNA(More)
