BACKGROUND Microarray technology shows great potential but previous studies were limited by small number of samples in the colorectal cancer (CRC) research. The aims of this study are to investigate gene expression profile of CRCs by pooling cDNA microarrays using PAM, ANN, and decision trees (CART and C5.0). METHODS Pooled 16 datasets contained 88 normal(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE To combine the diagnosis of OSA with titration of positive airway pressure (PAP), current guidelines recommend that split-night polysomnography (PSG) be performed if an AHI of ≥40/h is recorded over 2h. However, the diagnostic validity of partial-night PSG is uncertain. This study aimed to test the validity of partial-night PSG and(More)
Microarray technology can acquire information about thousands of genes simultaneously. We analyzed published breast cancer microarray databases to predict five-year recurrence and compared the performance of three data mining algorithms of artificial neural networks (ANN), decision trees (DT) and logistic regression (LR) and two composite models of DT-ANN(More)
AIM To verify gene expression profiles for colorectal cancer using 12 internet public microarray datasets. METHODS Logistic regression analysis was performed, and odds ratios for each gene were determined between colorectal cancer (CRC) and controls. Twelve public microarray datasets of GSE 4107, 4183, 8671, 9348, 10961, 13067, 13294, 13471, 14333, 15960,(More)
AIM Optimal molecular markers for detecting colorectal cancer (CRC) in a blood-based assay were evaluated. METHODS A matched (by variables of age and sex) case-control design (111 CRC and 227 non-cancer samples) was applied. Total RNAs isolated from the 338 blood samples were reverse-transcribed, and the relative transcript levels of candidate genes were(More)
The project demonstrated to analyze the survivability of cervical cancer from the large data set of SEER (Surveillance Epidemiology and End Results). The data were re-sampled into 10 folds on 5 different size that were based on for three methods- artificial neural network, logistic regression and decision tree- to establish models for predicting the(More)
OBJECTIVE Bipolar disorder (BD) and attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) have been associated with the use of cigarettes, but little is known about the impact of the subthreshold symptoms of BD or ADHD on the course of nicotine dependence. Identifying the links is essential for elucidating the pathway and supporting the development of nicotine(More)
BACKGROUND Colorectal cancer (CRC) is one of the leading cancers worldwide. Several studies have performed microarray data analyses for cancer classification and prognostic analyses. Microarray assays also enable the identification of gene signatures for molecular characterization and treatment prediction. OBJECTIVE Microarray gene expression data from(More)
