Deep Multi-Modal Metric Learning with Multi-Scale Correlation for Image-Text Retrieval

Yan Hua, Yingyun Yang, Jianhe Du
2020 Electronics  
Multi-modal retrieval is a challenge due to heterogeneous gap and a complex semantic relationship between different modal data. Typical research map different modalities into a common subspace with a one-to-one correspondence or similarity/dissimilarity relationship of inter-modal data, in which the distances of heterogeneous data can be compared directly; thus, inter-modal retrieval can be achieved by the nearest neighboring search. However, most of them ignore intra-modal relations and

In this paper, we propose a deep multi-modal metric learning method with multi-scale semantic correlation to deal with the retrieval tasks between image and text modalities. A deep model with two branches is designed to nonlinearly map raw heterogeneous data into comparable representations. In contrast to binary similarity, we formulate semantic relationship with multi-scale similarity to learn fine-grained multi-modal distances. Inter-modal and intra-modal correlations constructed on multi-scale semantic similarity are incorporated to train the deep model in an end-to-end way. Experiments validate the effectiveness of our proposed method on multi-modal retrieval tasks, and our method outperforms state-of-the-art methods on NUS-WIDE, MIR Flickr, and Wikipedia datasets.

Changes in gastric mucosal microbiota in gastric carcinogenesis: a systematic review protocol

Ruoyu Ji, Xinyu Zhao, Xinyuan Cao, Yizhen Zhang, Yingyun Yang
2021 BMJ Open  
The human stomach is a complex and diverse microbial ecosystem. Consecutive alternations of gastric microbiota occur in gastric carcinogenesis, while the changing pattern during this process remains controversial across studies. We aim to identify the changes in the diversity and composition of gastric mucosal microbiota in gastric tumorigenesis. We will search through PubMed, EMBASE and Cochrane databases, as well as conference proceedings and references of review articles for observational

Selection of studies and data extraction will be performed independently by two researchers. Disagreements will be resolved through discussion. Risk of bias will be assessed using the modified Newcastle-Ottawa Scale. Quantitative analyses will be performed using a random effects model, where the effect measurement will be expressed as the MD. Ethical approval for this systematic review is not required, as the study is based exclusively on published documents and will not include any individual data. Findings of this study are expected to be disseminated through peer-reviewed journals or conference proceedings. CRD42020206973.

Yingyun Yang, Yuan Liu, Weiyang Zheng, Weixun Zhou, Bin Wu, Xiyu Sun, Wei Chen, Tao Guo, Xiaoqing Li, Hong Yang, Jiaming Qian, Yue Li
2019 BMC Gastroenterology  
Ulcerative colitis (UC)-related post-colectomy enteritis is a very rare condition that is characterized by diffuse small-bowel mucosal inflammation following colectomy and could be very dangerous. In previously reported cases, corticosteroid therapy seemed to be the optimal choice for inducing remission; however, the patient studied herein presented with severe diarrhoea and hypovolemic shock and failed to achieve full remission with corticosteroid therapy. Case presentation: We describe the

Next, we review other cases of post-colectomy enteritis reported in the literature and propose a flow-chart for its diagnosis and initial treatment. Conclusion: Post-colectomy enteritis can be dangerous, and the early awareness of this condition plays a vital role. Additionally, in patients who do not respond well to corticosteroid or immunosuppressant therapy, early closure of the ileostomy and re-establishment of the natural faecal stream could be important considerations.

Panpan Yang, Wen Hu, Zhenzhen Fu, Luning Sun, Ying Zhou, Yingyun Gong, Tao Yang, Hongwen Zhou
2016 Lipids in Health and Disease  
It has been suggested that serum branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs) are associated with the incident, progression and prognostic of type 2 diabetes. However, the role of BCAAs in metabolic dyslipidemia (raised triglycerides (TG) and reduced high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C)) remains poorly understood. This study aims to investigate 1) the association of serum BCAAs with total cholesterol (TC), TG, HDL-C and low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) and 2) the association between

Methods: Demographics data and blood samples were collected from 2251 Chinese subjects from the Huaian Diabetes Protective Program (HADPP) study. After exclusion for cardiovascular disease (CVD), serious hepatic or nephritic diseases and others, 1320 subjects remained for analysis (789 subjects with hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) > 5.7, 521 with HbA1c ≤ 5.7). Serum BCAAs level was measured by liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry (LC MS/MS). The association of BCAAs with lipids or with the risk of metabolic dyslipidemia was analyzed. Results: Elevated serum BCAAs (both total and individual BCAA) were positively associated with TG and inversely associated with HDL-C in the whole population. These correlations were still significant even after adjustment for confounding factors (r = 0.165, p < 0.001 for TG; and r = -0.126, p < 0.001 for HDL-C). For reduced HDL-C, we found higher odds risk (OR) of Valine (Val) in high HbA1c group than in the low one (OR = 1.055, p < 0.001 vs OR = 1.032, p = 0.059). Compared with that in the first quartile, the multivariable-adjusted OR (95 % CI) of the 4 th quartile of serum total BCAAs level for reduced 5.854) in high HbA1c group and 2.329 (1.284, 4.227) in low group, for raised TG was 3.305 (2.120, 5.152) and 2.972 (1.706, 5.176), and for metabolic dyslipidemia was 3.703 (2.261, 6.065) and 3.702 (1.877, 7.304), respectively (all p < 0.01). Conclusion: Elevated serum BCAAs level are positively associated with incident metabolic dyslipidemia. In addition, glucose homeostasis could play a certain role in BCAAs-related dyslipidemia.

2020 Journal of Modern Power Systems and Clean Energy  
With the gradual upgradation of global energy consumption and the associated development of multi-energy sources, the pace of unified energy planning and design has been accelerated and the concept of multi-energy system (MES) has been formed. The industrial structure of industrial park (IP) consists of production and marketing of multi-energy sources, which makes IP become an ideal application scenario for MES. The coupling between multi-sources raises the complexity level of IP, which

This paper presents the concept and operation strategies of integrated demand response (IDR), and its model classification is analyzed in detail. Optimization model and IDR with varying time period are studied in IP to determine their impacts on the system. A detailed survey of different techniques in both operation strategies and model classification is presented and the classification is based on pros and cons. Finally, key issues and outlooks are discussed. Index Terms--Industrial park (IP), multi-energy system (MES), integrated demand response (IDR), integrated direct load control (IDLC), demand side management (DSM), demand side comfort index.

Siglec1 suppresses antiviral innate immune response by inducing TBK1 degradation via the ubiquitin ligase TRIM27

Qingliang Zheng, Jin Hou, Ye Zhou, Yingyun Yang, Bing Xie, Xuetao Cao
2015 Cell Research  
Type I interferon (IFN) production plays pivotal roles in host antiviral innate immune responses, but an excessive production of type I IFN leads to the development of immunopathological conditions. Investigations on the regulatory mechanisms underlying host type I IFN production are currently of great interest. Here, we found that the expression of lectin family member Siglec1 was upregulated by viral infection in macrophages, which was dependent on the IFN/JAK/STAT1 signaling pathway. Siglec1
more » ... was found to negatively regulate viral infection-triggered type I IFN production. Mechanistically, Siglec1 associates with DAP12 to recruit and activate the scaffolding function of SHP2; SHP2 then recruits E3 ubiquitin ligase TRIM27, which induces TBK1 degradation via K48-linked ubiquitination at Lys251 and Lys372. Therefore, viral infection-induced upregulation of Siglec1 feedback loop inhibits type I IFN production and suppresses antiviral innate immune responses. Our study outlines a novel mechanism of negative regulation of type I IFN production, which may help virus to escape immune elimination.
