    Abdulelah Alwabel1,*, Chinmaya Kumar Swain2

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.79, No.3, pp. 4127-4148, 2024, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2024.048833

    Abstract Fog computing has recently developed as a new paradigm with the aim of addressing time-sensitive applications better than with cloud computing by placing and processing tasks in close proximity to the data sources. However, the majority of the fog nodes in this environment are geographically scattered with resources that are limited in terms of capabilities compared to cloud nodes, thus making the application placement problem more complex than that in cloud computing. An approach for cost-efficient application placement in fog-cloud computing environments that combines the benefits of both fog and cloud computing to optimize the… More >

    CDGSH Iron Sulfur Domain 2 Activates Proliferation and EMT of Pancreatic Cancer Cells via Wnt/β-Catenin Pathway and Has Prognostic Value in Human Pancreatic Cancer

    Yang Yang, Yuan-song Bai, Qing Wang

    Oncology Research, Vol.25, No.4, pp. 605-615, 2017, DOI:10.3727/096504016X14767450526417

    Abstract Recently, increasing evidence has shown that CDGSH iron sulfur domain 2 (CISD2) is involved in the initiation and metastasis of several cancers. However, the evidence of its potential role in pancreatic cancer is still lacking. In our present study, CISD2 was found to be increased in pancreatic cancer samples and multiple cell lines. Moreover, statistical analysis revealed that a high level of CISD2 was related to advanced clinical stage, advanced T-stage, positive vascular invasion, positive distant metastasis, and larger tumor size. In addition, multivariate analysis suggests that CISD2 was an independent prognostic factor in pancreatic… More >

    KUN FENG1,#, HAO PENG2,#, QINGPENG LV1, YEWEI ZHANG1,*

    Oncology Research, Vol.32, No.6, pp. 1063-1078, 2024, DOI:10.32604/or.2024.047078

    Abstract Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is a malignancy known for its unfavorable prognosis. The dysregulation of the tumor microenvironment (TME) can affect the sensitivity to immunotherapy or chemotherapy, leading to treatment failure. The elucidation of PHLDA2’s involvement in HCC is imperative, and the clinical value of PHLDA2 is also underestimated. Here, bioinformatics analysis was performed in multiple cohorts to explore the phenotype and mechanism through which PHLDA2 may affect the progression of HCC. Then, the expression and function of PHLDA2 were examined via the qRT-PCR, Western Blot, and MTT assays. Our findings indicate a substantial upregulation of… More >

    Improving Channel Estimation in a NOMA Modulation Environment Based on Ensemble Learning

    Lassaad K. Smirani1, Leila Jamel2,*, Latifah Almuqren2

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.140, No.2, pp. 1315-1337, 2024, DOI:10.32604/cmes.2024.047551

    Abstract This study presents a layered generalization ensemble model for next generation radio mobiles, focusing on supervised channel estimation approaches. Channel estimation typically involves the insertion of pilot symbols with a well-balanced rhythm and suitable layout. The model, called Stacked Generalization for Channel Estimation (SGCE), aims to enhance channel estimation performance by eliminating pilot insertion and improving throughput. The SGCE model incorporates six machine learning methods: random forest (RF), gradient boosting machine (GB), light gradient boosting machine (LGBM), support vector regression (SVR), extremely randomized tree (ERT), and extreme gradient boosting (XGB). By generating meta-data from five… More >

    A Novel Scheduling Framework for Multi-Programming Quantum Computing in Cloud Environment

    Danyang Zheng, Jinchen Xv, Feng Yue, Qiming Du, Zhiheng Wang, Zheng Shan*

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.79, No.2, pp. 1957-1974, 2024, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2024.048956

    Abstract As cloud quantum computing gains broader acceptance, a growing quantity of researchers are directing their focus towards this domain. Nevertheless, the rapid surge in demand for cloud-based quantum computing resources has led to a scarcity, which in turn hampers users from achieving optimal satisfaction. Therefore, cloud quantum computing service providers require a unified analysis and scheduling framework for their quantum resources and user jobs to meet the ever-growing usage demands. This paper introduces a new multi-programming scheduling framework for quantum computing in a cloud environment. The framework addresses the issue of limited quantum computing resources More >

    Abstract Background: The incidence of clear cell renal cell carcinoma (ccRCC) is globally high; however, despite the introduction of innovative drug therapies, there remains a lack of effective biomarkers for evaluating treatment response. Recently, Caspase recruiting domain-containing protein 11 (CARD11) has garnered attention due to its significant association with tumor development and the immune system. Methods: The expression of CARD11 mRNA and protein in ccRCC were analyzed by public database and immunohistochemistry. The focus of this study is on the epigenomic modifications of CARD11, its expression of ccRCC immunophenotype, and its correlation with response to immunotherapy… More > Graphic Abstract

    ZHEN LIU1,#, LIANGWANG YANG2,#, ZHENGXING XIE1, HUI YU3, TIANYI GU3, DAOMING SHI4, NING CAI1,*, SHENGHUA ZHUO2,*

    Oncology Research, Vol.32, No.5, pp. 965-981, 2024, DOI:10.32604/or.2024.045769

    Abstract Clinical data indicates that glioma patients have poor treatment outcomes and clinical prognosis. The role of olfactory signaling pathway-related genes (OSPRGs) in glioma has not been fully elucidated. In this study, we aimed to investigate the role and relationship between OSPRGs and glioma. Univariate and multivariate Cox regression analyses were performed to assess the relationship between OSPRGs and the overall survival of glioma based on public cohorts, and the target gene (G Protein Subunit Alpha L, GNAL) was screened. The association of GNAL expression with clinicopathological characteristics, gene mutation landscape, tumor immune microenvironment (TIME), deoxyribonucleic acid… More >
