    • Customized Prediction of Short Length of Stay Following Elective Cardiac Surgery in Elderly Patients Using a Genetic Algorithm 

      Lee, Joon; Govindan, Sapna; Celi, Leo A.; Khabbaz, Kamal R.; Subramaniam, Balachundhar (2013)
      Objective: To develop a customized short LOS (<6 days) prediction model for geriatric patients receiving cardiac surgery, using local data and a computational feature selection algorithm. Design: Utilization of a machine ...
    • Early Cellular Changes in the Ascending Aorta and Myocardium in a Swine Model of Metabolic Syndrome 

      Saraf, Rabya; Huang, Thomas; Mahmood, Feroze; Owais, Khurram; Bardia, Amit; Khabbaz, Kamal R.; Liu, David; Senthilnathan, Venkatachalam; Lassaletta, Antonio D.; Sellke, Frank; Matyal, Robina (Public Library of Science, 2016)
      Background: Metabolic syndrome is associated with pathological remodeling of the heart and adjacent vessels. The early biochemical and cellular changes underlying the vascular damage are not fully understood. In this study, ...
    • Predicting DNA methylation level across human tissues 

      Ma, Baoshan; Wilker, Elissa H.; Willis-Owen, Saffron A. G.; Byun, Hyang-Min; Wong, Kenny C. C.; Motta, Valeria; Baccarelli, Andrea A.; Schwartz, Joel; Cookson, William O. C. M.; Khabbaz, Kamal; Mittleman, Murray A.; Moffatt, Miriam F.; Liang, Liming (Oxford University Press, 2014)
      Differences in methylation across tissues are critical to cell differentiation and are key to understanding the role of epigenetics in complex diseases. In this investigation, we found that locus-specific methylation ...
    • Preliminary Biomarkers for Identification of Human Ascending Thoracic Aortic Aneurysm 

      Black, Kendra M.; Masuzawa, Akihiro; Hagberg, Robert C.; Khabbaz, Kamal R.; Trovato, Mary E.; Rettagliati, Verna M.; Bhasin, Manoj K.; Dillon, Simon T.; Libermann, Towia A.; Toumpoulis, Ioannis K.; Levitsky, Sidney; McCully, James D. (Blackwell Publishing Ltd, 2013)
      Background: Human ascending thoracic aortic aneurysms (ATAAs) are life threatening and constitute a leading cause of mortality in the United States. Previously, we demonstrated that collagens α2(V) and α1(XI) mRNA and ...
