A single model regressing
the SDNN index (no lag) on nickel, vanadium, and lead concentrations, adjusted for age, mean heart rate, and smoking status, was investigated.
These findings were associated with a statistically significant increase in the rate of apoptosis in regressing
polyps showed substantial increases in the rate of apoptosis, while the rate of apoptosis in nearby normal tissue was unchanged, confirming a selective induction of apoptosis in neoplastic tissue without affecting normal cells.
In effect, we are regressing
to the old 'islands of data' problem that a central data warehouse was supposed to solve," said Doug Lynn, senior research analyst in META Group's Open Computing & Server Strategies service.
