BACKGROUND Because of the potentially significant economic burden of healthcare costs associated with many diseases, it is critical that regulatory and medical insurance organisations collect and utilise data on the cost-effectiveness of care provision to make rational policy decisions. However, little is known about healthcare costs in China. (More)
Mitochondria are abundant and important organelles present in nearly all eukaryotic cells, which maintain metabolic communication with the cytosol through mitochondrial carriers. The mitochondrial membrane localized phosphate transporter (MPT) plays vital roles in diverse development and signaling processes, especially the ATP biosynthesis. Among the three(More)
BACKGROUND Maintenance gefitinib significantly prolonged progression-free survival (PFS) compared with placebo in patients from eastern Asian with locally advanced/metastatic non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) after four chemotherapeutic cycles (21 days per cycle) of first-line platinum-based combination chemotherapy without disease progression. The(More)
BACKGROUND First-line postoperative adjuvant chemotherapies with S-1 and capecitabine and oxaliplatin (XELOX) were first recommended for resectable gastric cancer patients in the 2010 and 2011 Chinese NCCN Clinical Practice Guidelines in Oncology: Gastric Cancer; however, their economic impact in China is unknown. OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to(More)
Software errors significantly impact software quality, and improvement of fault localization can reduce the expense of debugging. SBFL is promising approach and have received a lot of attention due to its simplicity and effectiveness. However, there are still some limits in this approach. In this paper we address these limits and present a technique to(More)
BACKGROUND In general, the individual patient-level data (IPD) collected in clinical trials are not available to independent researchers to conduct economic evaluations; researchers only have access to published survival curves and summary statistics. Thus, methods that use published survival curves and summary statistics to reproduce statistics for(More)
Most current fault-localization approaches merely use the information from testing to locate faults, assuming that test cases satisfying a certain test adequacy criterion can provide adequate information for fault localization. Unfortunately however, due to different goals between fault localization and testing, the information from testing may be(More)
As an emerging paradigm for architecting, service-oriented computing plays a more and more important role in information technology. To ensure that web services are working according with the expectation, the research in service behavior about interactions between services is crucial to guarantee no deviation from specification. To detect these deviations,(More)
