Previous studies have suggested aberrant expression of membrane B7-H3 in tumor cells. This aim of the study was to determine the expression level of soluble B7-H3 (sB7-H3) in circulation and to subsequently evaluate the clinical significance of circulating B7-H3 in patients with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). The level of circulating B7-H3 was(More)
Greedy search is commonly used in an attempt to generate solutions quickly at the expense of completeness and optimality. In this work, we consider learning sets of weighted action-selection rules for guiding greedy search with application to automated planning. We make two primary contributions over prior work on learning for greedy search. First, we(More)
Beam search is commonly used to help maintain tractability in large search spaces at the expense of completeness and optimality. Here we study supervised learning of linear ranking functions for controlling beam search. The goal is to learn ranking functions that allow for beam search to perform nearly as well as unconstrained search, and hence gain(More)
Constraint-based problems are hard combinatorial problems and are usually solved by heuristic search methods. In this paper, we consider applying a machine learning approach to improve the performance of these search-based solvers. We apply reinforcement learning in the context of Constraint Satisfaction Problems (CSP) to learn a value function, which(More)
We perform the first-principles computational study of the effect of number of stacking layers and stacking style of the few-layer black phosphorus (BPs) on the electronic properties, including transport gap, current-voltage (i-v) relation, and differential conductance. Our computation is based on the nonequilibrium Green's function approach combined with(More)
ETHNOPHARMACOLOGICAL RELEVANCE Banxia Xiexin decoction (BXD), one of a traditional Chinese medicine chronicled in Shang Han Lun, is commonly used to treat gastroenteritis, ulcerative colitis and diarrhea. In our study, we used current biomedical approaches to investigate the therapeutic efficacy of BXD and possible protective mechanism involved in(More)
