The quadratic hazard model for analyzing longitudinal data on aging, health, and the life span.
(Phys Life Rev, 2012-06)
A better understanding of processes and mechanisms linking human aging with changes in health status and survival requires methods capable of analyzing new data that take into account knowledge about these processes accumulated ...
Recovery and survival from aging-associated diseases.
(Exp Gerontol, 2013-08)
OBJECTIVES: Considering disease incidence to be a main contributor to healthy lifespan of the US elderly population may lead to erroneous conclusions when recovery/long-term remission factors are underestimated. Using two ...
Transitional probability-based model for HPV clearance in HIV-1-positive adolescent females.
(PLoS One, 2012)
BACKGROUND: HIV-1-positive patients clear the human papillomavirus (HPV) infection less frequently than HIV-1-negative. Datasets for estimating HPV clearance probability often have irregular measurements of HPV status and ...
Radiative effects in the processes of exclusive photon electroproduction from polarized protons
(Physical Review D - Particles, Fields, Gravitation and Cosmology, 2012-03-28)
Radiative effects in the electroproduction of photons in polarized ep scattering are calculated in the leading log approximation and analyzed numerically for kinematical conditions of current measurement at Jefferson Lab. ...
Does surgery improve outcomes for esophageal squamous cell carcinoma? An analysis using the surveillance epidemiology and end results registry from 1998 to 2008.
(J Am Coll Surg, 2012-11)
BACKGROUND: We examined survival associated with locally advanced esophageal squamous cell cancer (SCC) to evaluate if treatment without surgery could be considered adequate. STUDY DESIGN: Patients in the Surveillance, ...
Variability in the treatment of elderly patients with stage IIIA (N2) non-small-cell lung cancer.
(J Thorac Oncol, 2013-06)
INTRODUCTION: : We evaluated treatment patterns of elderly patients with stage IIIA (N2) non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC). METHODS: : The use of surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation for patients with stage IIIA (T1-T3N2M0) ...
Monte Carlo generator ELRADGEN 2.0 for simulation of radiative events in elastic ep-scattering of polarized particles
(Computer Physics Communications, 2012-07-01)
The structure and algorithms of the Monte Carlo generator ELRADGEN 2.0 designed to simulate radiative events in polarized ep-scattering are presented. The full set of analytical expressions for the QED radiative corrections ...
Evaluation of genotype-specific survival using joint analysis of genetic and non-genetic subsamples of longitudinal data.
Small sample size of genetic data is often a limiting factor for desirable accuracy of estimated genetic effects on age-specific risks and survival. Longitudinal non-genetic data containing information on survival or disease ...
How the quality of GWAS of human lifespan and health span can be improved.
(Front Genet, 2013)
Exploring the association between melanoma and glioma risks.
(Ann Epidemiol, 2014-06)
PURPOSE: Gliomas are one of the most fatal malignancies, with largely unknown etiology. This study examines a possible connection between glioma and melanoma, which might provide insight into gliomas' etiology. METHODS: ...
