OBJECTIVE Gliomas are the most common type of primary intracranial tumor. Although tumor grade predicts the clinical course of most patients, molecular characteristics of individual tumors have emerged as important prognostic factors for patients with gliomas. Reduced expression of p27 protein is known as an independent prognostic marker in a large variety(More)
Forkhead box class O 3a (FOXO3a) is an important direct target of the phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase (PI3K)/protein B(Akt) pathway, mediating signal transduction in regulating cell survival and cell-cycle progression. Recent reports have shown that FOXO3a inhibits cell-cycle progression at the G1/S transition by controlling transcription of the(More)
A benign lymphoepithelial lesion (BLEL) is an idiopathic inflammation of the parotid gland, characterized by hyperplasia, lymphocyte infiltration and the formation of epimyoepithelial islands, as well as atrophy of the gland parenchyma. Common treatment methods include immunosup-pression and glucocorticoid therapies, in addition to surgical dissections.(More)
Data analysis is receiving considerable attention with the design of new graphics processing units (GPUs). Our study focuses on geostatistical data analysis, which is currently applied in diverse disciplines such as meteorology, oceanography, geography, forestry, environmental control, and agriculture. While geostatistical analysis algorithms are applied in(More)
