Dong Weng, Zhao-Fang Yin, Shan-Shan Chen, Xian He, Nan Li, Tao Chen, Hui Qiu, Meng-Meng Zhao, Qin Wu, Nian-Yu Zhou, Li-Qin Lu, Dan-Li Tang, Jia-Cui Song & Hui-Ping Li
Glucocorticoid (GC) hormone has been commonly used to treat systemic inflammation and immune disorders. However, the side effects associated with long-term use of high-dose GC hormone limit its clinical application seriously. GC hormone that can specifically target the lung might decrease the effective dosage and thus reduce GC-associated side effects. In this study, we successfully prepared human lung-targeting liposomal methylprednisolone crosslinked with nanobody (MPS-NSSLs-SPANb). Our findings indicate that MPS-NSSLs-SPANb may reduce the effective therapeutic dosage...

Value Function Guided Subgroup Identification via Gradient Tree Boosting: a Framework to Handle Multiple Outcomes for Optimal Treatment Recommendation

Pingye Zhang, Peng Liu, Junshui Ma & Yue Shentu
In randomized clinical trials, there has been an increasing interest in identifying subgroups with heterogeneous responses to study treatment based on baseline patient characteristics. Even though the benefit risk assessment of any patient population or subgroups is almost always a multi-facet consideration, the statistical literature of subgroup identification has largely been limited to a single clinical outcome. In the paper, we propose a nonparametric method that searches for subgroup membership scores by maximizing a value...
