A colorectal cancer genome-wide association study in a Spanish cohort identifies two variants associated with colorectal cancer risk at 1p33 and 8p12
(BioMed Central, 2013-01)
Background: Colorectal cancer (CRC) is a disease of complex aetiology, with much of the expected inherited risk being due to several common low risk variants. Genome-Wide Association Studies (GWAS) have identified 20 CRC ...
Data Preprocessing and Model Design for Medicine Problems

Black Holes, Cosmological Solutions, Future Singularities, and Their Thermodynamical Properties in Modified Gravity Theorie
Along this review, we focus on the study of several properties of modified gravity theories, in particular on black-hole solutions and its comparison with those solutions in General Relativity, and on Friedmann–Lemaˆıtr ...
Resveratrol prevents inflammation-dependent hepatic melanoma metastasis by inhibiting the secretion and effects of interleukin-18
(BioMed Central, 2011-05)
Background: Implantation and growth of metastatic cancer cells at distant organs is promoted by inflammation-dependent mechanisms. A hepatic melanoma metastasis model where a majority of metastases are generated via ...
Clinical factors associated with a Candida albicans Germ Tube Antibody positive test in Intensive Care Unit patients
(BioMed Central, 2011-03)
Background: Poor outcomes of invasive candidiasis (IC) are associated with the difficulty in establishing the microbiological diagnosis at an early stage. New scores and laboratory tests have been developed in order to ...
Biologically-inspired data decorrelation for hyper-spectral imaging
Hyper-spectral data allows the construction of more robust statistical models to sample the material properties than the standard tri-chromatic color representation. However, because of the large dimensionality and complexity ...
Optimally robust shortcuts to population inversion in two-level quantum systems
(IOP Publishing LTD, 2012-09-21)
We examine the stability versus different types of perturbations of recently proposed shortcuts to adiabaticity to speed up the population inversion of a two-level quantum system. We find the optimally robust processes by ...
Unconventional spin texture of a topologically nontrivial semimetal Sb(110)
(IOP Publishing LTD, 2012-10-17)
The surfaces of antimony are characterized by the presence of spin-split states within the projected bulk band gap and the Fermi contour is thus expected to exhibit a spin texture. Using spin-resolved density functional ...
Behavioral profile of adults with Prader-Willi syndrome : correlations with individual and environmental variables
(BioMed Central, 2013)
Background: Maladaptive behavior has been reported as a phenotypical feature in Prader–Willi syndrome (PWS). It severely limits social adaptation and the quality of life of children and adults with the syndrome. Different ...
Resveratrol Metabolites Modify Adipokine Expression and Secretion in 3T3-L1 Pre-Adipocytes and Mature Adipocytes
(Public Library of Science, 2013-05)
Objective: Due to the low bioavailability of resveratrol, determining whether its metabolites exert any beneficial effect is an interesting issue. Methods: 3T3-L1 maturing pre-adipocytes were treated during differentiation ...
