PURPOSE To develop a multiplex polymerase chain reaction (PCR) for the detection of adenovirus, herpes simplex virus, and Chlamydia trachomatis in conjunctival swabs. METHODS Oligonucleotide primers for detection of the 3 agents were combined in one reaction and evaluated for optimal performance using control DNAs of adenovirus type 2, herpes simplex(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate newly designed primers in a polymerase chain reaction (PCR) for the detection of adenovirus DNA in conjunctival swabs. METHODS Oligonucleotides were derived from the adenovirus hexon gene and modified such that a maximum of only two mismatches occurred with adenovirus types 2 through 5, 7, and 16. Specificity was determined against(More)
The insurance company in this case study operates in a highly competitive environment. In recent years it has explored data mining as a means of extracting valuable information from its huge databases in order to improve decision making and capitalise on the investment in business data. This case study describes an investigation into the benefits of data(More)
To protect information technology assets, effective risk management strategies need to be implemented. However, there is little empirical evidence on the factors that affect the successful undertaking of risk assessment. It is also not clearly known exactly how various factors affect the different stages of risk assessment and whether all factors are(More)
This paper describes a neural network modelling approach to premium price sensitivity of insurance policy holders. Clustering is used to classify policy holders into homogeneous risk groups. Within each cluster a neural network is then used to predict retention rates given demographic and policy information, including the premium change from one year to the(More)
