These channels are also expressed in cardiomyocytes and vascular smooth muscle cells (VSMCs), suggesting potential for adverse cardiovascular effects. We evaluated the effects of Gliquidone (Glq) on sulfonylurea(More)
The aim of this study is to evaluate the ability of the random forest algorithm that combines data on transrectal ultrasound findings, age, and serum levels of prostate-specific antigen to predict prostate carcinoma. Clinico-demographic data were analyzed for 941 patients with prostate diseases treated at our hospital, including age, serum prostate-specific(More)
Objective To evaluate the integrated performance of age, serum PSA, and transrectal ultrasound images in the prediction of prostate cancer using a Tree-Augmented NaÏve (TAN) Bayesian network model. METHODS We collected such data as age, serum PSA, transrectal ultrasound findings, and pathological diagnoses from 941 male patients who underwent prostate(More)
