Experimental and Numerical Study of the Evolution of Carrot Texture during Cooking in a Pressure CookerAbstractThis study deals with changes to the food texture of carrot (Daucus carota) during steam cooking in a pressure cooker. A previously developed thermal pressure cooker model was used to predict the temperature evolution of the product from core to surface. This compartment model took into account heat and mass transfer laws and various phenomena to adequately describe pressure cookers' mode...

Letrozole improves the sensitivity of breast cancer cells overexpressing aromatase to cisplatin via down-regulation of FEN1AbstractPurposeFlap endonuclease 1 (FEN1) is up-regulated by estrogen (17β-estradiol, E2) and related to cisplatin resistance of human breast cancer cells. Letrozole, an aromatase inhibitor, suppresses the change of testosterone into estrogen and is frequently used to treat breast cancer. However, the effects of letrozole on FEN1 expression and cisplatin sensitivity in breast...

Efficacy of rechallenge with BRAF inhibition therapy in patients with advanced BRAFV600 mutant melanomaAbstractBackgroundThe treatment of patients with BRAFv600 mutant melanomas progressing to BRAF inhibitors (BRAFi) and immunotherapy remains challenging. Preclinical studies and a small phase 2 trials have recently suggested that rechallenging with BRAFi may have a roll in these patients. The aim of this systematic review was to summarise the current evidence on the efficacy of BRAF inhibition therapy...

Efficacy of nivolumab as checkpoint inhibitor drug on survival rate of patients with relapsed/refractory classical Hodgkin lymphoma: a meta-analysis of prospective clinical studyAbstractAimsThe primary standard treatment for classic Hodgkin's lymphoma (cHL) is chemotherapy and radiation therapy. However, some patients get relapsed, or their diseases become resistant. PD1 blocking antibodies have been used to increase the response of treatment in solid tumors, and led to potentially stable responses...

Challenges to Professional Independence in a Relational Society: Accountants in ChinaAbstractThis study examines the tensions between the western concept of professional independence and accountants' commitment to significant others under the care perspective of guanxi. The principle of professional independence is founded on arm's-length transactions to avoid undue influence on professional and ethical judgement. However, in the relational society of China, social interactions based on Confucianism...

Effects of EHD on the flow and heat transfer characteristics in a rectangular corrugated channelAbstractThe electrohydrodynamic (EHD) effects on the flow field and forced convection heat transfer in a rectangular corrugated channel is numerically investigated in the present study. The numerical results are validated against experimental data for the smooth channel. The simulation results qualitatively agree with the experimental measurements. It is observed that in the presence of EHD in the rectangular...

Compensation in personal injury cases: mean or median income?AbstractCourts typically base compensation for loss of income in personal injury cases on either mean or median work income. Yet, quantitatively, mean and median incomes are typically very different. For example, in the US, median income is 65% of mean income. In this paper we use economic theory to determine the relation between the appropriate make-whole (full) compensation and mean and median work incomes. Given that consumption uncertainty...

Automated feature engineering improves prediction of protein–protein interactionsAbstractOver the last decade, various machine learning (ML) and statistical approaches for protein–protein interaction (PPI) predictions have been developed to help annotating functional interactions among proteins, essential for our system-level understanding of life. Efficient ML approaches require informative and non-redundant features. In this paper, we introduce novel types of expert-crafted sequence, evolutionary...
