Maranatha Christian University was founded on September 11, 1965 by the Christian scientific community in Bandung with the support of the Indonesia Christian Church and Pasundan Christian Church by the effort of the medical students of the Immanuel Christian Indonesian University. The university used to include only two faculties which were the Faculty of Medicine and the Faculty of Psychology. Wikipedia.

This research has an aim similar to that of three earlier studies [1-3], that is, to facilitate lecturer in helping students to predict their final results (high distinction, distinction or pass) based on their performance in several subjects in the first four semesters of their study period. The main difference is that instead of predicting the students' final pass results, in this research, the probability of a student getting those results is to be predicted. This is done through a data mining and multivariate technique called the multinomial regression method. Three cases are presented and discussed in this article. © 2016 WIETE. Source

Objective. Patients with ankylosing spondylitis (AS) can suffer concurrently from inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), as ulcerative colitis (UC) or Crohn's disease (CD). Serological markers have been described to diagnose IBD. We investigated IBD serological markers in AS patients without IBD and whether these antibodies enable differentiating patients with AS and IBD from those without IBD. Methods. Frequencies of perinuclear antineutrophil cytoplasmic antibodies (pANCA), antibodies to the cell-wall mannan of Saccharomyces cerevisiae (ASCA), and antibodies to porin protein C of Escherichia coli (OmpC) were evaluated in 179 patients: 52 with AS, 50 with UC, 51 with CD, and 26 with IBD and AS. Patient groups were matched for age and sex. All AS patients fulfilled the 1984 modified New York criteria. IBD was ascertained by clinical, endoscopic, and microscopic findings. Results. In 55% of the AS patients without manifest IBD at least one antibody associated with IBD was observed. pANCA, ASCA (IgA and/or IgG), and OmpC antibodies were found in 21%, 30%, and 19% of the AS patients, respectively. pANCA was more frequently present in AS with concurrent UC than in AS alone (OR 8.2, 95% CI 1.2-55.6), thus being an indicator for UC in AS patients. Conclusion. Antibodies associated with IBD are detectable in more than half of AS patients without symptoms or signs of IBD. A relatively recent marker in this setting, OmpC antibodies, does not contribute to the differentiation between AS and type of IBD. Presence of pANCA, however, is significantly increased in AS patients who also have UC, and is an indicator to perform endoscopy. These results corroborate a pathophysiological link between AS and IBD. The Journal of Rheumatology Copyright © 2010. All rights reserved. Source

As market intermediaries, e-commerce transaction broker firms need to strongly collaborate with suppliers in order to develop brands seek by customers. Developing suitable electronic Supplier Relationship Management (e-SRM) system is the solution to this need. In this paper, we propose our concept of e-SRM for transaction brokers owned by small medium enterprises (SMEs), which includes the integrated e-SRM and e-CRM architecture, as well as the e-SRM applications and their features. We then discuss the customization and implementation of the proposed e-SRM model in a specific transaction broker selling hotel rooms, which owned by an SME, KlikHotel.com. The implementation of the e-SRM in KlikHotel.com has been successfully boosting the number of suppliers (hotel members) and hotel room sales. © 2005 - 2015 JATIT & LLS. All rights reserved. Source

Soursop (Annona muricata) has numerous traditional medicinal uses in South American and the Caribbean, and it has become a popular nutritional medicinal supplement. In the other hand, pearl grass (Hedyotis corymbosa (L.) Lam.) has long been used traditionally as an anti-inflammatory. In this study, soursop and pearl grass combined to obtain extracts that have anticancer effects and anti-inflammatory effects, as most patients with cancer, particularly advanced breast cancer often experience inflammation. Two types of combination of extracts made by different solvents ie ethanol extract combination (CSEPE) and water extract combination (CSWPW) have been used. The anticarcinogenic properties of both extracts have been studied by using MTT assay. The antioxidative activity of the extracts which could contribute to their cytotoxic properties was also studied by using DPPH assay. The results showed that the combination extract of ethanolic extract of soursop and pearl grass (CSEPE) has potential anticarcinogenic properties and the properties was decreased during the increment of incubation time but increased with the increasement of doses. However, the combination extract of water extract of soursop and pearl grass (CSWPW) did not displayed the potential anticarcinogenic properties. The anticarcinogenic properties of CSEPE could be due to their high antioxidant activities. © 2015, Malaysian Journal of Analytical Sciences. All rights reserved. Source

As an academic advisor, a full-time lecturer has the duty to help students in setting up their study plan each semester so that they can perform with maximum efficiency. The aim of this research is to ascertain which subjects determine the students' final passing results. An academic advisor is expected to be able to predict the students' final passing results. In order to achieve this goal, discriminant analysis can be applied for this purpose. This particular analysis, based on students' results obtained in several subjects was applied in this research, and is outlined and presented as an example in this article. © 2012 WIETE. Source
