    Fake News Detection Based on Text-Modal Dominance and Fusing Multiple Multi-Model Clues

    Lifang Fu1, Huanxin Peng2,*, Changjin Ma2, Yuhan Liu2

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.78, No.3, pp. 4399-4416, 2024, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2024.047053

    Abstract In recent years, how to efficiently and accurately identify multi-model fake news has become more challenging. First, multi-model data provides more evidence but not all are equally important. Secondly, social structure information has proven to be effective in fake news detection and how to combine it while reducing the noise information is critical. Unfortunately, existing approaches fail to handle these problems. This paper proposes a multi-model fake news detection framework based on Tex-modal Dominance and fusing Multiple Multi-model Cues (TD-MMC), which utilizes three valuable multi-model clues: text-model importance, text-image complementary, and text-image inconsistency. TD-MMC is dominated by textural content and… More >

    Albert Osom1, Krysta S. Barton2, Katie Sexton3,4, Lyndia Brumback1, Joyce P. Yi-Frazier4, Abby R. Rosenberg5,6, Ruth Engelberg7, Jill M. Steiner8,*

    Congenital Heart Disease, Vol.19, No.1, pp. 33-48, 2024, DOI:10.32604/chd.2024.046656

    Abstract Social determinants of health (SDOH) affect quality of life. We investigated SDOH impacts on self-perceived resilience among people with adult congenital heart disease (ACHD). Secondary analysis of data from two complementary studies: a survey study conducted May 2021–June 2022 and a qualitative study conducted June 2020–August 2021. Resilience was assessed through CD-RISC10 score (range 0–40, higher scores reflect greater self-perceived resilience) and interview responses. Sociodemographic and SDOH (education, employment, living situation, monetary stability, financial dependency, area deprivation index) data were collected by healthcare record review and self-report. We used linear regression with robust standard errors to analyze survey data and… More > Graphic Abstract

    Developing risk models and subtypes of autophagy-associated LncRNAs for enhanced prognostic prediction and precision in therapeutic approaches for liver cancer patients


    Oncology Research, Vol.32, No.4, pp. 703-716, 2024, DOI:10.32604/or.2023.030988

    Abstract Background: Limited research has been conducted on the influence of autophagy-associated long non-coding RNAs (ARLncRNAs) on the prognosis of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). Methods: We analyzed 371 HCC samples from TCGA, identifying expression networks of ARLncRNAs using autophagy-related genes. Screening for prognostically relevant ARLncRNAs involved univariate Cox regression, Lasso regression, and multivariate Cox regression. A Nomogram was further employed to assess the reliability of Riskscore, calculated from the signatures of screened ARLncRNAs, in predicting outcomes. Additionally, we compared drug sensitivities in patient groups with differing risk levels and investigated potential biological pathways through enrichment analysis, using consensus clustering to identify subgroups… More >

    The heterogeneity of tumor-associated macrophages and strategies to target it

    HAO LV1, BO ZHU1,2, DEGAO CHEN1,2,*

    BIOCELL, Vol.48, No.3, pp. 363-378, 2024, DOI:10.32604/biocell.2023.046367

    Abstract Tumor-associated macrophages (TAMs) are emerging as targets for tumor therapy because of their primary role in promoting tumor progression. Several studies have been conducted to target TAMs by reducing their infiltration, depleting their numbers, and reversing their phenotypes to suppress tumor progression, leading to the development of drugs in preclinical and clinical trials. However, the heterogeneous characteristics of TAMs, including their ontogenetic and functional heterogeneity, limit their targeting. Therefore, in-depth exploration of the heterogeneity of TAMs, combined with immune checkpoint therapy or other therapeutic modalities could improve the efficiency of tumor treatment. This review focuses on the heterogeneous ontogeny and… More >
