OBJECTIVE To evaluate the role of balance training on Force Platform with Visual Feedback technique (FPVF) in improving balance and functional outcome in chronic stroke survivors. DESIGN Prospective, repeated measure study. SETTINGS Neurological rehabilitation department of a tertiary research center. PARTICIPANTS First episode of supra-tentorial(More)
OBJECTIVES To evaluate (1) the prevalence of operationally defined depressive disorder (ICD-10) in chronic stroke subjects and (2) the relationship of post-stroke depression (PSD) with disability. DESIGN Cross-sectional, descriptive study. SETTING Neurological rehabilitation unit of a tertiary care university research center. MATERIALS AND METHODS(More)
Selecting the optimal service from a set of functionally equivalent services is non-trivial. Previous research has addressed this issue making use of Quality of Service (QoS) attributes of the candidate services. In doing this, researchers have however assumed that the customers' preference of the various QoS attributes varies linearly with the actual(More)
Actinobacteria within the acI lineage are often numerically dominating in freshwater ecosystems, where they can account for >50% of total bacteria in the surface water. However, they remain uncultured to date. We thus set out to use single-cell genomics to gain insights into their genetic make-up, with the aim of learning about their physiology and(More)
A program was undertaken to identify hit compounds against NADH:ubiquinone oxidoreductase (PfNDH2), a dehydrogenase of the mitochondrial electron transport chain of the malaria parasite Plasmodium falciparum. PfNDH2 has only one known inhibitor, hydroxy-2-dodecyl-4-(1H)-quinolone (HDQ), and this was used along with a range of chemoinformatics methods in the(More)
Service composition is an effective practice to perform complex tasks through varied configurations of simple services. An issue that often arises in such a set-up is the selection of the best service from a group of functionally equivalent ones to cater to each of the various functionalities of the composite application. Previous effort in this direction(More)
The widespread emergence of Plasmodium falciparum (Pf) strains resistant to frontline agents has fuelled the search for fast-acting agents with novel mechanism of action. Here, we report the discovery and optimization of novel antimalarial compounds, the triaminopyrimidines (TAPs), which emerged from a phenotypic screen against the blood stages of Pf. The(More)
Dynamic Service composition is the art of composing a composite application from a set of service offerings from various providers at run time. Service composition is a complex task and the problem is with the construction of hierarchies of service providers where each service provider processes only a part of the application. This is further exacerbated by(More)
