    Oncology Research, Vol.24, No.2, pp. 117-128, 2016, DOI:10.3727/096504016X14612603423511

    Abstract Glioblastoma (GBM) is the most common primary malignant brain tumor that nearly always results in a bad prognosis. Temozolomide plus radiotherapy (TEM+RAD) is the most common treatment for newly diagnosed GBM. With the development of molecularly targeted drugs, several clinical trials were reported; however, the efficacy of the treatment remains controversial. So we attempted to measure the dose of the molecularly targeted drug that could improve the prognosis of those patients. The appropriate electronic databases (PubMed, MEDLINE, EMBASE, and the Cochrane Library) were searched for relevant studies. A meta-analysis was performed after determining which studies… More >

    Valentina K. Todorova*, Issam Makhoul, Ishwori Dhakal, Jeanne Wei§, Annjanette Stone, Weleetka Carter, Aaron Owen*, V. Suzanne Klimberg*

    Oncology Research, Vol.25, No.8, pp. 1223-1229, 2017, DOI:10.3727/096504017X14876245096439

    Abstract Doxorubicin (DOX) is a commonly used antineoplastic agent for the treatment of various malignancies, and its use is associated with unpredictable cardiotoxicity. Susceptibility to DOX cardiotoxicity is largely patient dependent, suggesting genetic predisposition. We have previously found that individual sensitivity to DOX cardiotoxicity was associated with differential expression of genes implicated in inflammatory response and immune trafficking, which was consistent with the increasing number of reports highlighting the important role of human leukocyte antigen (HLA) complex polymorphism in hypersensitivity to drug toxicity. This pilot study aimed to investigate DNA from patients treated with DOX-based chemotherapy… More >

    Ming Zhang*, Change Gao, Yi Yang*, Gaofeng Li, Jian Dong§, Yiqin Ai*, Nan Chen, Wenhui Li*

    Oncology Research, Vol.26, No.8, pp. 1245-1255, 2018, DOI:10.3727/096504017X14944585873668

    Abstract Long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs), a new class of functional regulators involved in human tumorigenesis, have been attracting the increasing attention of researchers. The lncRNA colorectal neoplasia differentially expressed (CRNDE) gene, transcribed from chromosome 16 on the strand opposite the adjacent IRX5 gene, was originally found to be increased in CRC and was reported to be abnormally expressed in many cancers. However, its potential role and the molecular mechanism underlying the radioresistant phenotype formation of lung adenocarcinoma (LAD) remain unclear. In our present study, we identified that CRNDE was significantly upregulated in LAD tissue and radioresistant… More >

    Traffic Flow Prediction with Heterogeneous Spatiotemporal Data Based on a Hybrid Deep Learning Model Using Attention-Mechanism

    Jing-Doo Wang1, Chayadi Oktomy Noto Susanto1,2,*

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.140, No.2, pp. 1711-1728, 2024, DOI:10.32604/cmes.2024.048955

    Abstract A significant obstacle in intelligent transportation systems (ITS) is the capacity to predict traffic flow. Recent advancements in deep neural networks have enabled the development of models to represent traffic flow accurately. However, accurately predicting traffic flow at the individual road level is extremely difficult due to the complex interplay of spatial and temporal factors. This paper proposes a technique for predicting short-term traffic flow data using an architecture that utilizes convolutional bidirectional long short-term memory (Conv-BiLSTM) with attention mechanisms. Prior studies neglected to include data pertaining to factors such as holidays, weather conditions, and More >
