Modified GDP through health cost analysis of air pollution: the case of Turkey
Economic growth and performance is monitored through the gross domestic product (GDP) of a nation. It has long been recognized that the traditionally computed GDP does not account for gains and losses observed due to the ...
SOX1 antibodies are markers of paraneoplastic Lambert-Eaton myasthenic syndrome
(Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 2008)
BACKGROUND/OBJECTIVE: We reported that 43% of patients with Lambert-Eaton myasthenic syndrome (LEMS) and small cell lung cancer (SCLC) had an antibody called anti-glial nuclear antibody (AGNA), defined by the immunoreaction ...
Skewed X-chromosome inactivation in scleroderma
(Springer New York, 2008)
Scleroderma is a female-prevalent autoimmune disease of unclear etiology. Two fundamental gender differences, skewed X-chromosome inactivation (XCI) and pregnancy-related microchimerism, have been implicated in scleroderma. ...
Two-tier tissue decomposition for histopathological image representation and classification
(Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2015)
In digital pathology, devising effective image representations is crucial to design robust automated diagnosis systems. To this end, many studies have proposed to develop object-based representations, instead of directly ...
Frequent and specific immunity to the embryonal stem cell-associated antigen SOX2 in patients with monoclonal gammopathy
(Rockefeller University Press, 2007)
Specific targets of cellular immunity in human premalignancy are largely unknown. Monoclonal gammopathy of undetermined significance (MGUS) represents a precursor lesion to myeloma (MM). We show that antigenic targets of ...
Effects of coloured lighting on the perception of interior spaces
Use of coloured lighting in interior spaces has become prevalent in recent years. Considerable importance is ascribed to coloured lighting in interior and lighting design. The effects of colour on the perception of interior ...
