Dynamic Decision Modeling about Combination of Traditional Chinese and Western Medicine

2015 8th International Symposium on Computational Intelligence and Design (ISCID), 2015

Chinese medicine information processing technology doesn't solve the problem of the formalized logic description of Chinese medicine diagnosis and treatment fundamentally, and it also lacks the method and the formalized description of the fusion of Chinese medicine and western medicine information. Therefore, the prognosis analysis of combination of traditional Chinese and Western medicine meet the problem. A new knowledge representation ...


Tech Fights Toughest Tumors: New Robotics Capabilities, Radiation Technologies, and Methods for Spotting Tumor Cells Lead the Way Forward

IEEE Pulse, 2017

Ask any surgical oncologist, and you'll hear the same thing: tumors are insidious. Removing them completely can be very difficult. Sometimes tumors are in hardto-reach areas, and, in many cases, tumor tissue looks so much like normal tissue that surgeons cannot tell exactly what to excise and what to leave alone.

  • Dynamic Decision Modeling about Combination of Traditional Chinese and Western Medicine

    Chinese medicine information processing technology doesn't solve the problem of the formalized logic description of Chinese medicine diagnosis and treatment fundamentally, and it also lacks the method and the formalized description of the fusion of Chinese medicine and western medicine information. Therefore, the prognosis analysis of combination of traditional Chinese and Western medicine meet the problem. A new knowledge representation approach is proposed to support the fusion of Chinese medicine and western medicine information, this proposed approach can represent the state change over time, and state-space expansion and compression automatically according to the situation. This paper also provides model construction process which constructs a model according to different situation dynamically. Finally, an example about gastric cancer is used to demonstrate the effectiveness of this approach.

I had just learned of his deteriorating health, and I flew into Gainesville to see him for, as it turned out, one last time. He was undergoing chemotherapy at the time, and the signs were not encouraging. However, he was well cognizant that the end was near; he told me so and suggested that I would be writing his obituary very soon. Naturally, my reaction was to provide encouragement about the state of medicine and the abilities of our health-care professionals, to which he expressed doubts and joked. He brought up the fact that President Nixon declared "war on cancer" many years ago and then laughingly noted that although cancer had neither army nor generals, cancer is still around whereas Nixon is not.

We take Dual-band IR Spectrogram's RAW Data as an input to the BSS algorithms. Integrated into the back-end processor of a Dual-band IR Sensor and Readout Circuit Platform, our Improved Neighbor-based BSS algorithm operated on Dual-band IR Spectrogram provides a better breast cancer detection. Considering the demarcating degree, our Improved Neighbor-based BSS algorithm is approximately 15% better than other algorithms. As to the correctness rate, our improved algorithm approximately increases 10% compared with other algorithms.

  • Nanosecond pulsed electric fields adjuvant chemotherapy for breast cancer: An in vitro study

    Chemotherapeutic resistance and adverse effects induced by chemotherapy are major problems of chemotherapy in breast cancer treatment. Lots of efforts have been put into discovering of better therapy for breast cancer. Nanosecond pulsed electric fields has been reported as an efficient drug-free approach to induce cell apoptosis. In the study, we used nanosecond pulsed electric fields adjuvant to gemcitabine, an anti-cancer drug widely used in clinics, as a novel combined therapy to increase the effects of treatment. Two cell lines were tested in the study. Human breast cancer cell line MCF-7 and MDA-MB-231. Cells were exposed to nsPEFs prior to low concentration of gemcitabine. It was observed that the combined treatment of nsPEF and gemcitabine significantly inhibited growth of both cell lines. The inhibition fraction could achieve 2 times greater than that induced by 0.38uM gemcitabine alone. The prior treatment of nsPEFs could sensitize the cells and thus enhance the effects of chemotherapeutic drugs. Similarly, apoptosis fraction increased significantly by adding nsPEF to the drug treatment. The proportion of early apoptosis could reach over 50% after pulsed plus 0.1ug/mL gemcitabine, which is 2-fold increase compared with gemcitabine alone treated cells. Morphological changes were observed by H&E staining. The results indicate that nsPEF can effectively enhance the inhibition of low concentration gemcitabine in breast cancer.

  • Inferring microarray relevance by enrichment of chemotherapy resistance-based microRNA sets

    Inferring relevance between microarray experiments stored in a gene expression repository is a helpful practice for biological data mining and information retrieval studies. In this study, we propose a knowledge-based approach for representing microarray experiment content to be used in such studies. The representation scheme is specifically designed for inferring a disease- associated relevance of microRNA experiments. A group of annotated microRNA sets based on their chemotherapy resistance are used for a statistical enrichment analysis over observed expression data. A query experiment is then represented by a single dimensional vector of these enrichment statistics, instead of raw expression data. According to the results, new representation scheme can provide a better retrieval performance than traditional differential expression-based representation.

  • The Influence of Environment Stimulation on Learning and Memory Function in Rats with Medication Chemotherapy

    Objective: To study the effect of environmental intervention on chembrain. Methods: SD rats were randomized into the experimental group and the control group. The control group was given peritoneal injection of cyclophosphamide, methotrexate and 5-fluorouracil and the experimental group received the enriched environmental intervention on the basis of the control group. The differences in learning and memory, EMG and dentate gyrus neurons were compared between the two groups. Results: Escape latency in the experimental group was significantly shortened than that in the control group. The number of dentate gyrus NeuN (neuron-specific nuclear protein) positive cells in the experimental group was higher than that in the control group. The experimental group of action ability in the Agile and external stimuli is better than that of the control group. Conclusion: Enriched environmental intervention can effectively improve the ability of chembrain in learning, memory and ability of action.

  • Efficient and economical electrical therapy for pancreatic cancers

    Pancreatic Adenocarcinoma is the most common pancreatic cancer. This occurs in 90% of all human pancreatic cancers. It is the most devastating disease, with overall 5-year survival rate of only 3-5%. In 2014, it was estimated that in the US, 46,000 new cases will occur with more than 40,000 deaths. This indicates that the current standard of cure is inadequate. Typically they are diagnosed at the late stages only, and hence are not resectable, due to the nearby major arteries and organs. Chemotherapy is also not useful in many patients due to the resistance of the pancreatic cell lines to the drug. As the current therapies offer very limited survival benefits, novel, physical therapeutic strategies are critically needed to treat this aggressive disease. Towards this we used electrically-mediated drug uptake using high intensity short duration pulses. Our results indicate that the drug resistant Panc-28 human pancreatic cells could be effectively killed using 1200V/cm, 100μs and 500V/cm, 25ms pulses. The Gemcitabine, chemo drug concentration was 100uM and the cell deaths were an impressive 67% and 66%, respectively at these two pulses conditions for the drug dose used. This indicates that electrical pulse-mediated chemo drug could be a better option to treat effectively more pancreatic cancer patients who do not respond to current standard of cure of cancer, such as surgery, radiation and chemotherapy.
