BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES N-Acetyltransferase (NAT) 2 is an important enzyme involved in the metabolism of different xenobiotics, including potential carcinogens, whose phenotypes were reported to be related to individual susceptibility to colorectal cancer (CRC). However, the results remain conflicting. To assess the relationship between NAT2 phenotypes(More)
In order to overcome some unavoidable factors, like shift of the part, that influence the crisp neural networks' recognition, the present study is dedicated in developing a novel fuzzy neural network (FNN), which integrates both the fuzzy set theory and adaptive resonance theory 2 (ART2) neural network for grouping the parts into several families based on(More)
The objectives of this study were to evaluate the efficiency in treatment of lead-induced intoxication in mice with γ-PGA as chelating agent and compare with the drug (meso-2,3-dimercaptosuccinic acid). The results showed the incorporation of γ-PGA at 200 and 400 mg/kg could reduce the accumulation of lead in the liver, heart, and testis; however, the(More)
BACKGROUND Airway intubation injuries occur frequently but are often neglected because of spontaneous regression. Although most airway injuries that result from intubation resolve without sequelae, severe complications can develop even when initial symptoms of upper airway obstruction are absent. This retrospective study assessed the clinical features,(More)
Oral and perioral burns often result in post-healing microstoma, a shallow vestibule, tongue ankylosis, esthetic problems, and masticatory and speech impairments. The main cause being persistent extensive scar tissue contractions during the healing process. These disastrous sequelae can be minimized by surgical reconstruction. Use of special prosthesis may(More)
Vascular rings are a diagnostic and therapeutic challenge for pediatricians. Many diagnostic modalities contribute to the detection of these rare congenital vascular anomalies. The role of flexible bronchoscopy is still being debated. We present 3 cases to emphasize the usefulness of pediatric flexible bronchoscopy (PFB) in the early diagnosis and(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the efficacy of intraocular infusion of troxerutin in the inhibition of fibrin formation after vitrectomy in a rabbit model. METHODS Lensectomies and vitrectomies were performed in a masked fashion on seven eyes treated with a 10-mM infusion of troxerutin and on seven control eyes that received only a balanced salt solution infusion.(More)
 In order to simulate human beings' thinking, this study is dedicated to proposing a novel fuzzy neural network (FNN) to cluster the fuzzy data being collected from the fuzzy questionnaires. The proposed FNN is the integration of adaptive resonance theory 2 (ART2) neural network and fuzzy sets theory. It can handle the fuzzy inputs as well as the fuzzy(More)
