Content-based retrieval has emerged in the face of content explosion as a promising approach to information access. In this paper, we focus on the challenging issue of recognizing the emotion content of music signals, or music emotion recognition (MER). Specifically, we formulate MER as a regression problem to predict the arousal and valence values (AV(More)
Nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) is a head and neck cancer rare throughout most of the world but common in certain geographic areas, such as southern Asia. While environmental factors and genetic susceptibility play important roles in NPC pathogenesis, the Epstein-Barr virus in particular has been implicated in the molecular abnormalities leading to NPC.(More)
Indolicidin, a l3-residue antimicrobial peptide-amide, which is unusually rich in tryptophan and proline, is isolated from the cytoplasmic granules of bovine neutrophils. In this study, the structures of indolicidin in 50% D3-trifluoroethanol and in the absence and presence of SDS and D38-dodecylphosphocholine were determined using NMR spectroscopy.(More)
It has been realized in the music emotion recognition (MER) community that personal difference, or individuality, has significant impact on the success of an MER system in practice. However, no previous work has explicitly taken individuality into consideration in an MER system. In this paper, the group-wise MER approach (GWMER) and personalized MER(More)
The performance of categorical music emotion classification that divides emotion into classes and uses audio features alone for emotion classification has reached a limit due to the presence of a semantic gap between the object feature level and the human cognitive level of emotion perception. Motivated by the fact that lyrics carry rich semantic(More)
Unilateral absence of a pulmonary artery (UAPA) is a rare pulmonary vascular anomaly that is usually associated with other cardiac anomalies. We report a 9-year-old female diagnosed with isolated unilateral absence of the left pulmonary artery and a right aortic arch but without other cardiac anomalies. The only symptoms the patient had were recurrent(More)
To assess the weaning outcome of lung cancer patients with acute respiratory failure (ARF) requiring mechanical ventilation, we retrospectively analyzed the database of the respiratory intensive care unit at a university-affiliated tertiary care hospital. Charts were reviewed for cancer status, biochemistries before respiratory failure, causes of(More)
OBJECTIVES To clarify the contribution of stroke to the risk of hip fracture (HF) and the influence of gender difference on HF, and to estimate the incidence rate of poststroke HF. DESIGN A prospective, probability-sampling, 10-year, population-based cohort study. SETTING A National Health Insurance Research Database consisting of 200,432 randomly(More)
Silencing of Wnt antagonists with aberrant activation of Wnt signaling is a common phenomenon in various human cancers. Wnt inhibitory factor-1 (WIF-1) is a secreted antagonist of Wnt signaling and acts through direct binding to Wnt in the extracellular space. In this study, we tried to illuminate the impact of WIF-1 gene expression in melanoma with WIF-1(More)
BACKGROUND Epidermal growth factor receptor tyrosine kinase inhibitor (EGFR-TKI) is the standard therapy for advanced lung adenocarcinomas with common EGFR mutations. Preclinical studies have suggested that uncommon G719X, L861Q, and S768I mutations are also sensitive to EGFR-TKIs. However, the efficacy of EGFR-TKIs in patients with these uncommon mutations(More)
