Background Tuberculosis patients often experience hospitalization. Inpatient services may result in high medical expenditures. It is important to explore the hospitalization rates of tuberculosis patients and the potential factors that are associated with admission rates and inpatient service expenditures.

Abstract Mutations in pncA gene contributing to PZA resistance was not clearly elucidated in China. To reveal the correlated mutations of pncA gene on pyrazinamide (PZA) resistance. 148 Mycobacterium tuberculosis clinical isolates were included from multi-drug resistant tuberculosis suspects. The MGIT 960 test and microscopic observation drug susceptibility (MODS) assay were adopted for PZA phenotype drug susceptibility test. 120 isolates with consistent MGIT 960 and MODS results were selected f...

Abstract Background The Mycobacterium tuberculosis Beijing genotype was first described in 1995 and is now the predominant strain among patients with tuberculosis in many Asian countries. The rapid global spread of the Beijing genotype is receiving increasing attention because it can cause a higher risk of treatment failures. Objectives Our objective was to assess the association between Beijing genotype and unfavorable treatment outcomes of tuberculosis. Data Sources We searched for eligible st...

Background. ASAP1 (also known as AMAP1 or DDEF1) encodes an Arf GTPase-activating protein (Arf GAP), a multifunctional scaffold protein that induces hydrolysis of GTP bound to the ADP-ribosylation factor (Arf) family GTP-binding proteins. Reduction of ASAP1 expression in vitro was related to suppression of cell migration and invasiveness. The genetic variant rs4733781 of the ASAP1 gene was revealed as a significant locus for tuberculosis (TB) susceptibility, but the results still need to be vali...

There is a growing need for distributed graph processing systems to have many more compute nodes processing graph-based Big Data applications, which, however, increases the chance of node failures. To address the issue, we propose a novel recovery scheme to accelerate the recovery process by parallelizing the recomputation. Once a failure occurs, all recomputations are confined to subgraphs that originally reside in the failed compute nodes. When the recovery starts, these subgraphs are reassign...
