OBJECTIVE Good oocyte quality and maturity are important prerequisites for high fertilization and implantation rates in IVF/ICSI treatment cycles. Reactive oxygen species (ROS) are produced within ovarian follicles, especially during the ovulation process, and increased ROS activity may be a cause of impaired oocyte maturation and higher rate of failure of(More)
Mutations in the RNU4ATAC gene cause microcephalic osteodysplastic primordial dwarfism type I. It encodes U4atac, a small nuclear RNA that is a component of the minor spliceosome. Six distinct mutations in 30 patients diagnosed as microcephalic osteodysplastic primordial dwarfism type I have been described. We report on three additional patients from two(More)
We present a novel integrated visualization system that enables interactive visual analysis of ensemble simulations of the sea surface height that is used in ocean forecasting. The position of eddies can be derived directly from the sea surface height and our visualization approach enables their interactive exploration and analysis.The behavior of eddies is(More)
We present a novel integrated visualization system that enables interactive visual analysis of ensemble simulations used in ocean forecasting, i.e, simulations of sea surface elevation. Our system enables the interactive planning of both the placement and operation of off-shore structures. We illustrate this using a real-world simulation of the Gulf of(More)
In the following paper, a new approach for de signing high-performance arithmetic circuits based on the new “Weighted Logic” family is presented while demonstrating the new technique's performance advantage an d relatively low-energy characteristics. It will be shown by the means of a 64-bit comparator and a 64-bit adder that using the new(More)
Recently researchers were interested in hybrid algorithms for optimization problems for several communication systems. In this paper, a novel algorithm based on hybrid PSOGSA technique (combination of Gravitational Search Algorithm and Particle Swarm Optimization) is presented to enhance the performance analysis of beam-forming for smart antennas systems(More)
Obtaining information about the spatial distribution of desert plants is considered as a serious challenge for ecologists and environmental modeling due to the required intensive field work and infrastructures in harsh and remote arid environments. A new method was applied for assessing the spatial distribution of the halophytic species (HS) in an arid(More)
BACKGROUND To study the prevalence of Chlamydia infection in women with primary and secondary unexplained infertility using ELISA technique for antibody detection and real time, fully automated PCR for antigen detection and to explore its association with circulating antisperm antibodies (ASA). METHODS A total of 50 women with unexplained infertility(More)
Stenting in acute myocardial infarction (AMI) has the benefits of achieving acute optimal angiographic results and correcting residual dissection to decrease the incidence of restenosis and reocclusion. Studies have shown that percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty for primary treatment after AMI is superior to thrombolytic therapy regarding the(More)
Dynamic Programming (DP) is an important technique used in solving optimization problems. A close correspondence between DP recurrences and Constraint Handling Rules with rule priorities (CHR) yields natural implementations of DP problems in CHR. In this work, we evaluate different implementation techniques with respect to their runtime. From our results we(More)
