Publication date: Available online 20 August 2018Source: NeurocomputingAuthor(s): Junjie Zhang, Yong Xia, Haoyue Zeng, Yanning ZhangAbstractDetection of pulmonary nodules on chest CT is an essential step in the early diagnosis of lung cancer, which is critical for best patient care. In this paper, we propose an automated pulmonary nodule detection algorithm, denoted by NODULe, which jointly uses a conventional method for nodule detection and a deep learning model for genuine nodule identification. Specifically, we first use multi-scale Laplacian of Gaussian (LoG) filters and prior shape and size constraints to detect nodul...

WeissAbstractHighly sensitive detection of heat denatured Herceptin® (trastuzumab), an important monoclonal antibody used in breast cancer therapeutics, is demonstrated using transverse magnetic (TM) mode suspended microring resonators (MRRs). The suspended MRRs are surface functionalized with a single chain fragment variable (scFv) recombinant antibody molecule (designated 2B4) that enables selective capture of denatured Herceptin...

The interaction between HSA and two semi-synthetic potential anti-cancer agents derived from trans -dehydrocrotonin-methyl-hydrazone (MHDCTN) and phenyl-hydrazone (PHDCTN) was evaluated under physiological conditions at 296, 303 and 310 K by multi-spectroscopic techniques and molecular docking calculations. Steady state fluorescence quenching indicated a ground state association (static quenching) for both samples; however, the quenching induced by PHDCTN was not essentially static and can be accompanied by a dynamic quenching mechanism. The binding is strong (modified Stern-Volmer binding constant (Ka) ca. 105 M-1), causi...

Conclusion: the hearing protector was worn by 59.7% of the workers, the plug model was the most used (47.4%) and 75.8% reported that occupational noise decreased with the use of hearing protectors. Most workers use hearing protection and have no hearing symptoms. However, the presence of symptoms such as otalgia (8.8%), otorrhea (5.3%), dizziness (14.0%), tinnitus (17.5%) and difficulty in speech comprehension (7, 0%) should be pointed out. Noise assessment showed high levels from some maintenance machinery, representing a risk for hearing. The sectors of the woodwork and metalwork were the noisiest.RESUMO Objetivo: invest...
