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)
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)
Heat shock protein 90 (Hsp90) is a fascinating target for cancer therapy due to its significant role in the crossroad of multiple signaling pathways associated with cell proliferation and regulation. Hsp90 inhibitors have the potential to be developed into anti-cancer drugs. Here, we identified nicotinic-mycoepoxydiene (NMD), a structurally novel compound(More)
Video streaming applications over lossy packet networks is a challenging task due to a number of factors such as delay, fix bandwidth allocation, and packet loss. The conventional Forward Error Correcting (FEC) code and automatic repeat requestret (ARQ) methods will become ineffective to transmit video streaming for the reason that video frame errors appear(More)
Polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) and chlorobenzenes (CBzs) are two classes of dioxin precursors formed in municipal solid waste incinerators (MSWIs) producing negative health effects similar to those of dioxins. Reducing the analytical time required for determining the concentrations of these compounds in MSWIs is important for quickly evaluating their(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)
Composting is a process of stabilizing organic wastes through the degradation of biodegradable components by microbial communities under controlled conditions. In the present study, genera and species diversities, amylohydrolysis, protein and cellulose degradation abilities of culturable bacteria in the thermophilic phase of composting of cattle manure with(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)
OBJECTIVE To assess the clinical value of dual tracers Positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) (18)F-fluoroestradiol ((18)F-FES) and (18)F-fluorodeoxyglucose ((18)F-FDG) in predicting neoadjuvant chemotherapy response (NAC) of breast cancer. METHODS Eighteen consecutive patients with newly diagnosed, non-inflammatory, stage II and III(More)
