Background: For most computer-aided diagnosis (CAD) problems involving prostate cancer detection via medical imaging data, the choice of classifier has been largely ad hoc, or been motivated by classifier comparison studies that have involved larger synthetic datasets. More significantly, it is currently unknown how classifier choices and trends generalize across multiple institutions, due to heterogeneous acquisition and intensity characteristics (especially when considering MR imaging data). In this work, we empirically evaluate and compare a number...

Data from: Revised Airlie House consensus guidelines for design and implementation of ALS clinical trials

Gubitz, Catherine Lomen-Hoerth, Christopher J. McDermott, Erik P. Pioro, Jeffrey Rosenfeld, Vincenzo Silani, Martin R. Turner, Markus Weber, Benjamin Rix Brooks, Robert G. Miller & Hiroshi Mitsumoto
Objective: To revise the 1999 Airlie House consensus guidelines for the design and implementation of preclinical therapeutic studies and clinical trials in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). Methods: A consensus committee comprising 140 key members of the international ALS community (ALS researchers, clinicians, patient representatives, research funding representatives, industry and regulatory agencies) addressed nine areas of need within ALS research: 1. Pre-clinical studies; 2. Biological and phenotypic heterogeneity; 3. Outcome measures; 4. Disease-modifying and symptomatic interventions;...

Data from: Variation in non-invasive ventilation use in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis

Nimish J. Thakore, Brittany R. Lapin, Erik P. Pioro & Loutfi S. Aboussouan
Objective: We sought to examine prevalence and predictors of non-invasive ventilation (NIV) in a composite cohort of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) patients followed in a clinical trials setting (PRO-ACT database). Methods: NIV initiation and status were ascertained from response to question 12 of the revised ALS functional rating scale (ALSFRS-R). Factors affecting NIV use in patients with forced vital capacity (FVC) ≤ 50% of predicted were examined. Predictors of NIV were evaluated by Cox proportional...

Data from: A survey of risk tolerance to multiple sclerosis therapies

Robert J. Fox, Carol Cosenza, Lauren Cripps, Paul Ford, MaryBeth Mercer, Sneha Natarajan, Amber Salter, Tuula Tyry & Stacey S. Cofield
Objective: To determine tolerance to various risk scenarios associated with current MS therapies. Methods: People with MS from the North American Research Committee on Multiple Sclerosis (NARCOMS) Registry’s online cohort and the National Multiple Sclerosis Society were invited to complete a questionnaire on tolerance to real-world risks associated with a hypothetical therapy. Multiple risks levels were presented including, skin rash, infection, kidney injury, thyroid injury, liver injury, and PML. Results: Both progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy (PML)...
