A nonlinear Bayesian filter is proposed in this paper for a general nonlinear system of continuous time dynamics and discrete time measurements. In this filter, a transient Fokker-Planck equation solver based on tensor decomposition is used for propagating the conditional state probability density function (PDF) in conjunction with a measurement update via(More)
UNLABELLED Although endocrine therapy is an effective method to treat estrogen receptor (ER)-positive breast cancer, approximately 30%-40% of all hormone receptor-positive tumors display de novo resistance. The aim of our current study was to analyze whether (18)F-labeled fluoromisonidazole (1-(2-nitro-1-imidazolyl)-2-hydroxy-3-fluoropropane [(18)F-FMISO])(More)
Long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs) represent an attractive class of candidates to mediate cancer risk. Through integrative analysis of the lncRNA transcriptome with genomic data and SNP data from prostate cancer genome-wide association studies (GWAS), we identified 45 candidate lncRNAs associated with risk to prostate cancer. We further evaluated the mechanism(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the performance of structurally reinforced, stabilized recombinant human collagen-phosphorylcholine (RHCIII-MPC) hydrogels as corneal substitutes in a rabbit model of severe corneal damage. METHODS One eye each of 12 rabbits received a deep corneal alkali wound. Four corneas were implanted with RHCIII-MPC hydrogels. The other eight(More)
AIM Our study was to investigate the heterogeneity of estrogen receptor (ER) expression among tumor sites by using fluorine-18 ((18)F) fluoroestradiol (FES) positron-emission tomography-computed tomography (PET-CT) imaging. METHODS Thirty-two breast cancer patients underwent both (18)F-FES and (18)F fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) PET-CTs from June 2010 to(More)

Food allergy (FA) affects 2%-10% of US children and is a growing clinical and public health problem. Here we conduct the first genome-wide association study of well-defined FA, including specific subtypes (peanut, milk and egg) in 2,759 US participants (1,315 children and 1,444 parents) from the Chicago Food Allergy Study, and identify peanut allergy(More)
