Globally efficient non-parametric inference of average treatment effects by empirical balancing calibration weighting.
The estimation of average treatment effects based on observational data is extremely important in practice and has been studied by generations of statisticians under different frameworks. ExistingExpand

Increased regulatory T cells correlate with CD8 T-cell impairment and poor survival in hepatocellular carcinoma patients.
BACKGROUND & AIMS Recent studies have suggested that CD4(+)CD25(+) regulatory T cells (Treg) are increased and linked to compromised immune responses in patients with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC).Expand

Endocardial Cells Form the Coronary Arteries by Angiogenesis through Myocardial-Endocardial VEGF Signaling
The origins and developmental mechanisms of coronary arteries are incompletely understood. We show here by fate mapping, clonal analysis, and immunohistochemistry that endocardial cells generate theExpand

Visualization of monoaminergic neurons and neurotoxicity of MPTP in live transgenic zebrafish.
We describe an enhancer trap transgenic zebrafish line, ETvmat2:GFP, in which most monoaminergic neurons are labeled by green fluorescent protein (GFP) during embryonic development. The reporter geneExpand
