ISeeU: Visually interpretable deep learning for mortality prediction inside the ICU
(Academic Press Inc., 2019)
To improve the performance of Intensive Care Units (ICUs), the field of bio-statistics has developed scores which try to predict the likelihood of negative outcomes. These help evaluate the effectiveness of treatments and ...
Restoration of retinal images with space-variant blur
Retinal images are essential clinical resources for the diagnosis of retinopathy and many other ocular diseases. Because of improper acquisition conditions or inherent optical aberrations in the eye, the images are often ...
Male facial anthropometry and attractiveness
The symmetry and masculinity of the face are often considered important elements of male facial attractiveness. However, facial preferences are rarely studied on natural faces. We studied the effect of these traits and ...
Role of VEGF in the differential growth between the fetal and placental ends of the umbilical cord
(IOS Press, 2019)
INTRODUCTION: The umbilical cord (UC) is a vital structure; its alterations affect the newborn and neurological impact can be permanent. Paradoxically, factors that determine it remain unknown. We explore the differential ...
Reply to: Effectiveness of a visual noise warning system on noise levels in a surgical ICU
(Lippincott Williams and Wilkins, 2020)
Towards better BBB passage prediction using an extensive and curated data set
(Wiley-VCH Verlag, 2015)
In the present report, the challenging task of drug delivery across the blood-brain barrier (BBB) is addressed via a computational approach. The BBB passage was modeled using classification and regression schemes on a novel ...
Effectiveness of a visual noise warning system on noise levels in a surgical ICU: A quality improvement programme
(Lippincott Williams and Wilkins, 2019)
BACKGROUNDThe effects of noise are harmful to patients in the ICU environment, and the latter are particularly noisy places. High noise levels seem to be a factor in sleep disturbance, which can, in turn, result in increased ...
Hand anthropometric study in northern Colombia
(Taylor and Francis Ltd., 2017)
The main purpose of this study is to gather information about the dimensions of the northern Colombian (Caribbean region) population, focusing on the dimensions of the hand and comparing them with measurements from other ...
Multi-output model with box-jenkins operators of quadratic indices for prediction of malaria and cancer inhibitors targeting ubiquitin-proteasome pathway (UPP) proteins
(Bentham Science Publishers B.V., 2016)
The ubiquitin-proteasome pathway (UPP) is the primary degradation system of short-lived regulatory proteins. Cellular processes such as the cell cycle, signal transduction, gene expression, DNA repair and apoptosis are ...
Umbilical cord and preeclampsia
(IOS Press, 2016)
Preeclampsia is associated with abnormalities in the umbilical cord in several ways: morphological, biochemical and functional. Alteration in blood vessels of the placenta, decidua and circulatory system of the fetus might ...
