Changing cancer survival in China during 2003-15: a pooled analysis of 17 population-based cancer registries.
(The Lancet. Global health, 2018-05)
From 2003 to 2005, standardised 5-year cancer survival in China was much lower than in developed countries and varied substantially by geographical area. Monitoring population-level cancer survival is crucial to the understanding ...
A latent factor linear mixed model for high-dimensional longitudinal data analysis.
(Statistics in medicine, 2013-10)
High-dimensional longitudinal data involving latent variables such as depression and anxiety that cannot be quantified directly are often encountered in biomedical and social sciences. Multiple responses are used to characterize ...
A putatively functional polymorphism in the HTR2C gene is associated with depressive symptoms in white females reporting significant life stress.
(PloS one, 2014-01)
Psychosocial stress is well known to be positively associated with subsequent depressive symptoms. Cortisol response to stress may be one of a number of biological mechanisms that links psychological stress to depressive ...
