BACKGROUND Most emerging health threats are of zoonotic origin. For the overwhelming majority, their causative agents are RNA viruses which include but are not limited to HIV, Influenza, SARS, Ebola, Dengue, and Hantavirus. Of increasing importance therefore is a better understanding of global viral diversity to enable better surveillance and prediction of(More)
—Breast cancer is a common form of cancer diagnosed in women. Clustered microcalcifications(MCs) in mammograms is one of the important early sign. Their accurate detection is a key problem in computer aided detection (CDAe). In this paper, a novel approach based on the recently developed machine learning technique-twin support vector machines (TWSVM) to(More)
Oxidative stress plays an important role in neurodegenerative disorders such as Parkinson's disease and Alzheimer's disease. Methamphetamine (METH) is an amphetamine analog that causes degeneration of the dopaminergic system in mammals and subsequent oxidative stress. In our present study, we have used immortalized human brain microvascular endothelial(More)
—In this paper, a novel algorithm for mammographic images enhancement and denoising based on Multiscale Geometric Analysis (MGA) is proposed. Firstly mammograms are decomposed into different scales and directional subbands using Nonsubsampled Contourlet Transform (NSCT). After modeling the coefficients of each directional subbands using Generalized Gaussian(More)
Color is an indispensible characteristic of food because it makes foods easily recognizable and attractive in our modern society. Numerous food colors have been removed from the national and international lists of “accepted food colors” due to their mutagenic and carcinogenic activities based on a number of toxicity studies that have been conducted since(More)
Diesel exhaust particles (DEPs), a by-product of diesel engine exhaust (DEE), are one of the major components of air borne particulate matter (PM) in the urban environment. DEPs are composed of soot, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), redox active semi-quinones, and transition metals, which are known to produce pro-oxidative and pro-inflammatory(More)
—In this paper we discuss a new approach for the detection of clustered microcalcifications (MCs) in mammograms. MCs are an important early sign of breast cancer in women. Their accurate detection is a key issue in computer aided detection scheme. To improve the performance of detection, we propose a Bagging and Boosting based twin support vector machine(More)
