PURPOSE To introduce multilevel binomial logistic prediction model-based computer-aided diagnostic (CAD) method of small solitary pulmonary nodules (SPNs) diagnosis by combining patient and image characteristics by textural features of CT image. MATERIALS AND METHODS Describe fourteen gray level co-occurrence matrix textural features obtained from 2171(More)
AIMS With developments of etiology of cerebral small vessel disease (CSVD) and genome-wide association study (GWAS) of stroke, the genetic studies of CSVD are focused on genes related to blood-brain barrier (BBB) and aging. The project aims to investigate the association between CSVD and susceptibility loci and candidate genes. METHODS All study subjects(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIMS Tenuigenin (Ten) is a Chinese herbal extract with antioxidative and antiinflammatory effects on toxin-induced cell models of Parkinson's disease (PD); however, its effects on α-synuclein toxicity-based PD models remain unknown. α-synuclein hyperphosphorylation is a key event in PD pathogenesis and potential target of therapeutic(More)
Malignant meningiomas are uncommon intracranial tumors. The metastasis of malignant meningiomas to distant extracranial sites are well known. However, dissemination of the tumours in the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) is rare and few cases have been reported. We present a case of histologically proven malignant meningioma with CSF dissemination at the remote(More)
The present study was designed to characterize the blood chemistry, hematology, and lymphocyte subsets in pregnant rhesus monkeys and provide baseline parameters for future studies of reproductive and developmental toxicity and developmental immunotoxicity. Harem-mating was used in 96 female and 16 male rhesus monkeys. Pregnancy was confirmed on gestation(More)
