    Comparison of Treatment Response and Survival Profiles Between Drug-Eluting Bead Transarterial Chemoembolization and Conventional Transarterial Chemoembolization in Chinese Hepatocellular Carcinoma Patients: A Prospective Cohort Study

    Oncology Research, Vol.27, No.5, pp. 583-592, 2019, DOI:10.3727/096504018X15368325811545

    Abstract This study evaluated the difference in treatment response and survival profiles between drug-eluting bead transarterial chemoembolization (DEB-TACE) and conventional transarterial chemoembolization (cTACE) treatments in Chinese hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) patients. A total of 120 HCC patients were consecutively enrolled in this prospective cohort study, which showed that DEB-TACE achieved higher complete response (CR) (30.8%) compared with cTACE (7.4%) with no difference in overall response rate (ORR) for patients treated with DEB-TACE and cTACE (80.8% vs. 73.5%). In addition, DEB-TACE was associated with a lower rate of progressive disease (PD) compared with cTACE (1.9% vs. 11.8%). With… More >

    Oncology Research, Vol.27, No.4, pp. 495-501, 2019, DOI:10.3727/096504018X15331163433914

    Abstract Melanoma is an aggressive malignancy with a poor prognosis. Current studies show that imatinib treatment is a promising approach in treating advanced melanoma patients harboring c-Kit mutations or amplifications. We retrospectively analyzed the clinical medical records of 78 patients with metastatic melanoma harboring c-Kit mutations or amplifications. These patients were treated with imatinib at a dose of 400 mg/day continuously unless intolerable toxicities or disease progression occurred. Endpoints for exploration included overall survival (OS), progression-free survival (PFS), objective response rate (ORR), and disease of control rate (DCR). The median OS and PFS of all patients were More >

    State-Based Offloading Model for Improving Response Rate of IoT Services

    K. Sakthidasan1, Bhekisipho Twala2, S. Yuvaraj3, K. Vijayan3,*, S. Praveenkumar3, Prashant Mani4, C. Bharatiraja3

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.67, No.3, pp. 3721-3735, 2021, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2021.014321

    Abstract The Internet of Things (IoT) is a heterogeneous information sharing and access platform that provides services in a pervasive manner. Task and computation offloading in the IoT helps to improve the response rate and the availability of resources. Task offloading in a service-centric IoT environment mitigates the complexity in response delivery and request processing. In this paper, the state-based task offloading method (STOM) is introduced with a view to maximize the service response rate and reduce the response time of the varying request densities. The proposed method is designed using the Markov decision-making model to… More >
