OBJECTIVE To evaluate the prevalence of lower-limb complications in a multiracial cohort of patients with diabetes receiving dialysis. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS This work was a cross-sectional study of lower-limb complications in dialysis-treated patients with diabetes in the U.K. and U.S. RESULTS We studied 466 patients (139 U.K.; 327 U.S.). The(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine whether dialysis treatment is an independent risk factor for foot ulceration in patients with diabetes and renal impairment. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS We performed a cross-sectional study of consecutive patients with diabetes and stage 4 or 5 chronic kidney disease (CKD) attending clinics in Manchester (U.K.). Patients were(More)
Complete design and implementation of a robust palm biometrics recognition and verification system has been presented. The paper attempts to scientifically develop a comprehensive set of hand geometry features and develop an original algorithm from a fundamental level to robustly compute a selected set of features so as to minimize palm placement effect.(More)
All of us are familiar with the digital circuitry. Now days the digital circuitry has replaced most of the analog circuitry in various places because technically digital domain is much better than the analog domain. To operate these digital signals we use the Digital Signal Processors. In digital signal processing to perform different types of operations we(More)
An unknown impurity in the fermentation-based drug substance lovastatin at 0.52 RRT was observed invariably in all batches when analyzed by HPLC as per the PhEur monograph. This impurity was isolated from the impurity-enriched sample using reversed-phase preparative HPLC and characterized by using spectroscopic (PMR, CMR, MASS, and UV) techniques as the(More)
There is an ongoing increase in the number of elderly or frail patients requiring renal replacement therapy. Assisted automated peritoneal dialysis (aAPD) is one treatment option for this patient group and is becoming increasingly recognized as a distinct dialysis modality. In this article, we review the current status of aAPD and its evolution across(More)
