High dimensional data are commonly encountered in various scientific fields and pose great challenges to modern statistical analysis. To address this issue different penalized regression procedures have been introduced in the litrature, but these methods cannot cope with the problem of outliers and leverage points in the heavy tailed high dimensional data. For this purppose, a new Robust Adaptive Lasso (RAL) method is proposed which is based on pearson residuals weighting scheme. The weight function determines the compatibility of each observations and downweight it if they are inconsistent with the assumed model...

We aim to measure the postintervention effects of A-tDCS (anodal-tDCS) on brain potentials commonly used in BCI applications, namely, Event-Related Desynchronization (ERD), Event-Related Synchronization (ERS), and P300. Ten subjects were given sham and 1.5 mA A-tDCS for 15 minutes on two separate experiments in a double-blind, randomized order. Postintervention EEG was recorded while subjects were asked to perform a spelling task based on the "oddball paradigm" while P300 power was measured. Additionally, ERD and ERS were measured while subjects performed mental motor imagery tasks...

OBJECTIVE: It has been widely acknowledged that the community and health professionals hold negative attitudes toward patients with impaired mental health. This constitutes a majör obstacle for those patients in coping with their disease, managing their care, and hence regulating their lives. Although studies carried out in Turkey document the presence of stigma, they provide limited information about the ways for solving this problem. Drawing on the litrature, the present study investigated the effect of medical education on stigmatization...

Achillea tenuifolia Lam. (Asteraceae) afforded a methanolic extract from which after fractionation in solvents with different polarities, two known flavones 3', 5- dihydroxy- 4', 6, 7- trimethoxy flavone (eupatorine, compound 3), 5- hydroxy- 3',4', 6, 7- tetramethoxyflavone (compound 4), besides stearic acid (compound 1), lupeol (compound 2), daucosterol (β- sitosterol 3-O- β- D- glucopyranoside, compound 5), 2, 4- dihydroxy methyl benzoate (compound 6) were isolated for the first time. The structure of isolated compounds was elucidated by means of different spectroscopic methods such as UV, IR, Mass and 1H- NMR (1D and 2D) and 13C-NMR...

OBJECTIVE: To describe a patient with erhythema and edema after Radix Astragali was added to a kampo formula. CASE SUMMARY: A 21-year-old male, who was diagnosed as having atopic dermatitis in 1989, demonstrated systemic dry eruptions and consulted our department for treatment with traditional herbal medicine (THM) in 2004. The oral administration of herbal medicine resulted in decreased symptoms as well as a reduction in the serum IgE level. In August 2007, he complained of sweating on the neck and we added Radix Astragali to the previous formula...

Diastematomyelia is complete or partial sagital splitting of the spinal cord into two hemicords, each with its own central canal and pia surrounding it. We are reporting the clinical feature, radiological evidence and surgical outcome of a nine years old female child from Addis Ababa who was lately diagnosed to have Diastematomyelia. In addition, we have presented review of relevant literatures.

It is well established in the litrature, that selegiline is metabolised to its N-dealkylated metabolites, N-desmethylselegiline, methamphetamine and amphetamine. However, most studies on selegiline metabolism did not characterize the species differences in the formation of the metabolites. Therefore, in this study, we investigated the in vitro metabolism of selegiline in liver microsomes of different species. In addition, to the previously well-characterized metabolites, selegiline-N-oxide (selegiline-NO) was found to be formed as a metabolite of selegiline in rat liver microsomal preparation...

The pre-operative diagnosis of osteoid osteoma of the first metacarpal bone was suggested by Magnetic Resonance Imaging in a 15 year old girl. As indicated in the literature, osteoid osteoma of the hand is relatively rare. The symptoms and the x-rays features of osteoid osteoma are essentially independent from the location consisting in rather unspecific pain and radiographically osteolytic nidus surrounded with sclerosis. In the few published cases with MR Imaging, the nidus shows high signal intensity surrounded by low signal intensity in the area corresponding to the radiographically visible sclerosis...

While synovial sarcoma most commonly presents as a painless mass, occasionally the cancer emerges in a misleading manner resulting in an unfavorable delay or error in diagnosis. A review of the litrature reveals 4 such occult patterns: pretumor phase characterized only by pain or tenderness; the acute inflammatory lesion presenting as a "hot" arthritis or bursitis; the chronic contracture; the post traumatic tumor. These conditions, especially when otherwise unaccounted for, are indications for biopsy. Four avoidable pitfalls in biopsy management also emerged from the review...
