  • Patients with depression can be categorized into four unique subtypes defined by distinct patterns of abnormal connectivity in the brain, according to new research from Weill Cornell Medicine. (brightsurf.com)
  • These biomarkers may help doctors to better diagnose depression subtypes and determine which patients would most likely benefit from a targeted neuro-stimulation therapy called transcranial magnetic stimulation that uses magnetic fields to create electrical impulses in the brain.

  • distinct
  • Analyses of a national sample of individuals with alcohol dependence (alcoholism) reveal five distinct subtypes of the disease, according to a new study by scientists at the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA), part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH).

  • After a confirmatory test done in Australia, it was confirmed that the Bird Flu strain in Pampanga in the Philippines in August 2017 was of the subtype H5N6. (wikipedia.org)
  • researchers
  • In order to better study the role of the subtypes in the clinical course of CD, the researchers went on to look at 201 children who had recently been diagnosed with CD but who had not undergone any treatment or surgery for the condition. (healthcentral.com)
  • Researchers from Weill Cornell Medicine and seven other institutions derived the biomarkers by assigning statistical weights to abnormal connections in the brain and then predicting the probability that they belonged to one subtype versus another. (brightsurf.com)
  • primarily
  • Previous efforts to identify alcoholism subtypes focused primarily on individuals who were hospitalized or otherwise receiving treatment for their alcoholism. (scienceblog.com)
  • treatments
  • The first formal treatments of subtyping were given by John C. Reynolds in 1980 who used category theory to formalize implicit conversions, and Luca Cardelli (1985). (wikipedia.org)
  • disease
  • Thus, a substantial proportion of people with alcoholism were not represented in the samples previously used to define subtypes of this disease. (scienceblog.com)
  • This subtype of HL is usually diagnosed at an early stage in adults and has a low relapse (disease returns after treatment) rate. (lymphomacoalition.org)
  • More advanced disease is usually present by the time this subtype is diagnosed. (lymphomacoalition.org)
  • These grants will provide upwards of $2 million to support projects aimed at gaining a better understanding of these particular subtypes of lymphoma, as well as for the disease in general. (prweb.com)
  • Treatment
  • It's important to know your subtype since it plays a large part in determining the type of treatment you'll receive. (lls.org)
  • In addition, each subtype can behave differently after treatment. (cancer.net)
  • type
  • A subtype statically matches another subtype of the same type if they have statically matching constraints. (adaic.org)
  • In programming language theory, subtyping (also subtype polymorphism or inclusion polymorphism) is a form of type polymorphism in which a subtype is a datatype that is related to another datatype (the supertype) by some notion of substitutability, meaning that program elements, typically subroutines or functions, written to operate on elements of the supertype can also operate on elements of the subtype. (wikipedia.org)
  • The type system of a programming language essentially defines its own subtyping relation, which may well be trivial [clarification needed]. (wikipedia.org)
  • Due to the subtyping relation, a term may belong to more than one type. (wikipedia.org)
  • Subtyping is therefore a form of type polymorphism. (wikipedia.org)
  • Because it must consider mutable objects, the ideal notion of subtyping defined by Liskov and Jeannette Wing, called behavioral subtyping is considerably stronger than what can be implemented in a type checker. (wikipedia.org)
  • The UML notation is used in this diagram, with open-headed arrows showing the direction and type of the relationship between the supertype and its subtypes. (wikipedia.org)
  • Type theorists make a distinction between nominal subtyping, in which only types declared in a certain way may be subtypes of each other, and structural subtyping, in which the structure of two types determines whether or not one is a subtype of the other. (wikipedia.org)
  • five
