Changing circulation structure and precipitation characteristics in Asian monsoon regions: greenhouse warming vs. aerosol effects

Using model outputs from CMIP5 historical integrations, we have investigated the relative roles of anthropogenic emissions of greenhouse gases (GHG) and aerosols in changing the characteristics of the large-scale circulation and rainfall in Asian summer monsoon (ASM) regions. Under GHG warming, a strong positive trend in low-level moist static energy (MSE) is found over ASM...

Diagnostic value of urodynamic bladder outlet obstruction to select patients for transurethral surgery of the prostate: Systematic review and meta-analysis

Purpose To investigate the diagnostic value of urodynamic bladder outlet obstruction (BOO) in the selection of patients for transurethral surgery of the prostate. Materials and methods We systematically searched online PubMed, Embase, and Cochrane Library databases from January 1989 to June 2014. Results A total of 19 articles met the eligibility criteria for this systematic...

Impacts of aerosol–monsoon interaction on rainfall and circulation over Northern India and the Himalaya Foothills

The boreal summer of 2008 was unusual for the Indian monsoon, featuring exceptional heavy loading of dust aerosols over the Arabian Sea and northern-central India, near normal all-India rainfall, but excessive heavy rain, causing disastrous flooding in the Northern Indian Himalaya Foothills (NIHF) regions, accompanied by persistent drought conditions in central and southern India...

Are urothelial carcinomas of the upper urinary tract a distinct entity from urothelial carcinomas of the urinary bladder? Behavior of urothelial carcinoma after radical surgery with respect to anatomical location: a case control study

performed the statistical analysis. All authors read and approved the final manuscript. Authors information Myong Kim is the first author. 1. Ploeg M , Aben KH , Kiemeney L. The present and future burden of

External Validation of Models for Prediction of Lymph Node Metastasis in Urothelial Carcinoma of the Bladder

Purpose To externally validate models to predict LN metastsis; Karakiewicz nomogram, clinical nodal staging score (cNSS), and pathologic nodal staging score (pNSS) using a different cohort Materials and Methods Clinicopathologic data from 500 patients who underwent radical cystectomy and pelvic lymphadenectomy were analyzed. The overall predictive values of models were compared...

Amplification of ENSO effects on Indian summer monsoon by absorbing aerosols

In this study, we present observational evidence, based on satellite aerosol measurements and MERRA reanalysis data for the period 1979–2011, indicating that absorbing aerosols can have strong influence on seasonal-to-interannual variability of the Indian summer monsoon rainfall, including amplification of ENSO effects. We find a significant correlation between ENSO (El Nino...

Non-Invasive Clinical Parameters for the Prediction of Urodynamic Bladder Outlet Obstruction: Analysis Using Causal Bayesian Networks

Purpose To identify non-invasive clinical parameters to predict urodynamic bladder outlet obstruction (BOO) in patients with benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) using causal Bayesian networks (CBN). Subjects and Methods From October 2004 to August 2013, 1,381 eligible BPH patients with complete data were selected for analysis. The following clinical variables were considered: age...

Multifactorial, Site-Specific Recurrence Models after Radical Cystectomy for Urothelial Carcinoma: External Validation in a Cohort of Korean Patients

Purpose The aim of this study was to evaluate the accuracy of site-specific recurrence models after radical cystectomy in the Korean population. Materials and Methods We conducted a review of an electronic medical record of 572 patients who underwent radical cystectomy for urothelial carcinoma of the bladder. Primary end point was the site-specific recurrence after radical...

Prognostic Significance of Lymphovascular Invasion in Radical Cystectomy on Patients with Bladder Cancer: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis

Purpose The objective of the present study was to conduct a systematic review and meta-analysis of published literature to appraise the prognostic value of lymphovascular invasion (LVI) in radical cystectomy specimens. Materials and Methods Following the PRISMA statement, PubMed, Cochrane Library, and SCOPUS database were searched from the respective dates of inception until June...

Prognostic Role of Survivin in Bladder Cancer: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis

Purpose The objective of the present study was to conduct a systematic review and meta-analysis of published literature investigating the survivin expression and its effects on bladder cancer prognosis. Materials and Methods We carefully searched online Pubmed, Cochrane Library and SCOPUS database from August 1997 to May 2013. Results A total of 14 articles met the eligibility...

Arabidopsis HDA6 Regulates Locus-Directed Heterochromatin Silencing in Cooperation with MET1

Heterochromatin silencing is pivotal for genome stability in eukaryotes. In Arabidopsis, a plant-specific mechanism called RNA–directed DNA methylation (RdDM) is involved in heterochromatin silencing. Histone deacetylase HDA6 has been identified as a component of such machineries; however, its endogenous targets and the silencing mechanisms have not been analyzed globally. In...

Intercomparison and analyses of the climatology of the West African Monsoon in the West African Monsoon Modeling and Evaluation project (WAMME) first model intercomparison experiment

This paper briefly presents the West African Monsoon (WAM) Modeling and Evaluation Project (WAMME) and evaluates WAMME general circulation models’ (GCM) performances in simulating variability of WAM precipitation, surface temperature, and major circulation features at seasonal and intraseasonal scales in the first WAMME experiment. The analyses indicate that models with specified...
