Use of secondary data to estimate instantaneous model parameters of diabetic heart disease: Lemonade Method

Wen Ye, Deanna J.M. Isaman, Jacob Barhak
2012 Information Fusion  
In addition, the method is demonstrated through application to a model of heart disease in diabetes.  ...  Typically, the models are developed by using secondary data analysis to find a single "best" study to estimate each transition in the model.  ...  Acknowledgments We wish to thank Dr. Michael Brandle for his effort invested in developing the clinical model which motivated this research and extracting the estimates from the medical literature.  ...

Bone strength accrual across adolescent growth and the influences of physical activity and sedentary time

Leigh Elizabeth Christine Gabel
I found no associations between sedentary time and bone parameters. Second, I examined maturity- and sex-related adaptations of bone geometry and strength at the tibial shaft using pQCT.  ...  With recent advances in imaging technologies, we are acquiring a better understanding of the complex hierarchy of bone and how bone adapts its geometry, microarchitecture and ultimately, its strength to  ...  Comparisons of model estimates of bone parameters between boys and girls Tibia Discussion In this study, I use longitudinal data and mixed modeling approaches to demonstrate sex differences in bone  ...
