subtype

(programming)
If S is a subtype of T then an expression of type S may be used anywhere that one of type T can and an implicit type conversion will be applied to convert it to type T.

In object oriented programming, this means that objects of type S must accept every message that one of type T would.

Our initial approach applies our Cancer Subtype Platform (CSP) to parse the complexity of tumor biology and generate genomic signatures.
Additionally, Chidamide is a new molecular entity with global patent protection developed by Chipscreen Biosciences, China's first international-recognised subtype selective histone deacetylation enzyme (HDAC) oral inhibitor and a national class 1.1 drug.
This resulted in a change of the molecular subtype from basal-like (from the immunohistochemistry result) to HER2 (from the CISH result).
This is important because patients with subtype 1, unlike subtype 2, often do not respond well to medications and develop strictures - extreme narrowing of the gut tube, requiring surgery once it develops.
Lymph node involvement, age, high histological grade, and large tumor size were significantly associated with a poor survival outcome among BCS.[5],[25] In our series, a significant association with tumor size ( P < 0.001), OS ( P < 0.001), and RFS ( P < 0.001) among BCS, in which TN subtype were associated with a larger tumor size, poor OS, and RFS survival outcome which is in accordance with previous studies.[25],[29],[30] Previous studies have also shown that LVI is an independent poor prognostic factor in patients with breast cancer.
The SVD subtype, also called lacuna stroke, usually occurs due to the fibrinoid necrosis and lipohyalinosis of arterioles affected by hypertension-induced pathological processes.
In addition, sections with GIM were stained with alcian blue (pH 2.5) and periodic acid Schiff (PAS) to identify the GIM subtype. Two experienced pathologists (HML and TSN), blinded to any clinical and endoscopic information, jointly examined all the specimens and reached a consensus.
The maximum-likelihood phylogenetic tree of the hemagglutinin (HA) gene showed that the H9N2 subtype virus from Burkina Faso belonged to the G1 lineage, which has remarkable zoonotic potential.
28, 2015, found that patients with the PPR subtype had a better overall prognosis, compared with their counterparts with the other subtypes.
Of 101 patients analyzed 28 (27.72%) patients achieved PCR, and 73 (72.27%) patients did not achieve complete response, the rate of PCR differed significantly among 4 molecular subtypes. About 5.9% (1/17) achieved PCR in luminal A, 4.8% (1/21) had PCR in luminal B (HER 2 -ve type), 23.5% (4/17) in luminal B (HER 2 +ve type), 50% (8/16) achieved PCR in HER-2 over expressed type and 46.7% (14/30) had PCR in triple negative subtype.
