BACKGROUND MicroRNA-206 (miR-206), as a homolog of miR-1, plays important roles in tumorigenesis and tumor progression of various human malignancies, including breast cancer, endometrial endometrioid carcinoma, rhabdomyosarcoma, glioma, lung cancer, and laryngeal cancer. However, its involvement in gastric cancer has remained unclear. AIM To examine the(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess the association of a single nucleotide polymorphism(SNP) in tumor suppressor gene P53 with the risk of endometriosis (EM) in Han Chinese women. METHODS For 460 EM patients, 113 patients with endometrial carcinoma and 530 matched unrelated controls, a rs1042522(C/G) SNP of the P53 gene was genotyped by polymerase chain reaction-single(More)
BACKGROUND Foot-and-mouth disease (FMD) is an acute, highly contagious disease that infects cloven-hoofed animals. Vaccination is an effective means of preventing and controlling FMD. Compared to conventional inactivated FMDV vaccines, the format of FMDV virus-like particles (VLPs) as a non-replicating particulate vaccine candidate is a promising(More)
Collaborative tagging have emerged as a ubiquitous way to annotate and organize online resources. As a kind of descriptive keyword, large amount of tags are created and associated to multiple types of resources, e.g., web pages, photos, videos and tweets. Users’ tagging actions over time reflect their changing interests. Monitoring and analyzing the(More)
Collaborative tagging becomes a common feature of current web sites, facilitating ordinary users to annotate and represent online resources. The large collection of tags and their relationships form a tag space. In this kind of tag space, the popularity and correlation amongst tags capture the current social interests. Tags are freely chosen keywords and(More)
Web 2.0 users generate and spread huge amounts of messages in online social media. Such user-generated contents are mixture of temporal topics (e.g., breaking events) and stable topics (e.g., user interests). Due to their different natures, it is important and useful to distinguish temporal topics from stable topics in social media. However, such a(More)
BACKGROUND Low socioeconomic status (SES) is associated with adverse cardiovascular risk factor patterns and poor outcomes in patients with diabetes. The aim of this study was to determine whether SES is associated with the control of blood glucose, blood pressure, blood cholesterol (3Bs), and diabetic complications in Chinese adults with type 2 diabetes.(More)
Burst detection is an important topic in temporal stream analysis. Usually, only the textual features are used in burst detection. In the theme extraction from current prevailing social media content, it is necessary to consider not only textual features but also the pervasive collaborative context, e.g., resource lifetime and user activity. This paper(More)
Textual web pages dominate web search engines nowadays. However, there is also a striking increase of structured data on the web. Efficient keyword query processing on structured data has attracted enough attention, but effective query understanding has yet to be investigated. In this paper, we focus on the problem of keyword query reformulation in the(More)
Collaborative tagging systems have emerged as an ubiquitous way to annotate and organize online resources. The users' tagging actions over time reflect the changing of their interests. In this paper, we propose to detect bursty tagging event, which captures the relations among a group of correlated tags where the tags are either bursty or associated with(More)
