Social tagging can provide rich semantic information for large-scale retrieval in music discovery. Such collaborative intelligence, however, also generates a high degree of tags unhelpful to discovery, some of which obfuscate critical information. Towards addressing these shortcomings, tag recommendation for more robust music discovery is an emerging topic(More)
OBJECTIVE This study explored the effects of telomerase reverse transcriptase (TERT) promoter mutations on transcriptional activity of the TERT gene under hypoxic and temozolomide (TMZ) treatment conditions, and investigated the status and prognostic value of these mutations in gliomas. METHODS The effect of TERT promoter mutations on the transcriptional(More)

Because the onset of fever induced by intravenously (i.v.) injected bacterial endotoxic lipopolysaccharides (LPS) precedes the appearance in the bloodstream of pyrogenic cytokines, the presumptive peripheral triggers of the febrile response, we have postulated previously that, in their stead, PGE2 could be the peripheral fever trigger because it appears in(More)
This paper considers statistical process control (SPC) of univariate processes when the para-metric form of the process distribution is unavailable. Most existing SPC procedures are based on the assumption that a parametric form (e.g., normal) of the process distribution can be specified beforehand. In the literature, it has been demonstrated that their(More)
The febrile responses of splenectomized (Splex) or sham-operated (Sham) guinea pigs challenged intravenously or intraperitoneally with lipopolysaccharide (LPS) 7 and 30 days after surgery were evaluated. FITC-LPS uptake by Kupffer cells (KC) was additionally assessed 15, 30, and 60 min after injection. LPS at 0.05 microg/kg iv did not evoke fever in Sham(More)
A music retrieval system is introduced that incorporate tempo, cultural, and beat strength features to help music therapists provide appropriate music for gait training for Parkinson's patients. Unlike current methods available to music therapists (e.g., personal CD/MP3 library search) we propose a domain-specific search engine that utilizes database of(More)
