Multi-instance learning (MIL) has been widely used on diverse applications involving complicated data objects such as images, where people use a bag generator to represent an original data object as a bag of instances, and then employ MIL algorithms. Many powerful MIL algorithms have been developed during the past decades, but the bag generators have rarely been studied although...
GH and IGF-I have important roles in the maintenance of substrate metabolism and body composition. However, when in excess in acromegaly, the lipolytic and insulin antagonistic effects of GH may alter adipose tissue (AT) deposition.
Cushing's Disease (CD) alters fat distribution, muscle mass, adipokine profile, and cardiovascular risk factors. It is not known whether remission entirely reverses these changes.
HOXA9-mediated up-regulation of miR-155 was noted during an array-based analysis of microRNA expression in Hoxa9−/−bone marrow (BM) cells. HOXA9 induction of miR-155 was confirmed in these samples, as well as in wild-type versus Hoxa9-deficient marrow, using northern analysis and qRT–PCR. Infection of wild-type BM with HOXA9 expressing or GFP+ control virus further confirmed...
Context: GH and IGF-I are important regulators of metabolism and body composition. In acromegaly, a state of GH and IGF-I excess, the lipolytic and insulin antagonistic effects of GH may alter adipose tissue (AT) distribution.
Background: A single axial image measured between the 4th and 5th lumbar vertebrae (L4-L5) is most frequently chosen to approximate total abdominal visceral adipose tissue (VAT) volume, but growing evidence suggests that this measurement site is not ideal.
Background: Skeletal muscle (SM) is an important compartment but is difficult to quantify in children and adolescents.
Background: Protein is an important body component, and the presently accepted criterion method for estimating total body protein (TBPro) mass—in vivo neutron activation (IVNA) analysis—is unavailable to most investigators and is associated with moderate radiation exposure.
