Dynamic binary instrumentation for performance analysis on new, large scale architectures such as the IBM Blue Gene/L system (BG/L) poses new challenges. Their scale---with potentially hundreds of thousands of compute nodes---requires new, more scalable mechanisms to deploy and to organize binary instrumentation and to collect the resulting data gathered by(More)

The Affinity Research Group concept and model provides both undergraduate and graduate students with opportunities to learn, use, and integrate the knowledge and skills that are required for research with the knowledge and skills that are required for cooperative work. Affinity research groups include students with a wide range of experiences and skill(More)
To compare the usefulness of multiple sclerosis functional composite (MSFC) to the Expanded Disability Status Scale (EDSS) in assessing functional changes related to relapse. A prospective 12-week follow-up study after relapse was conducted among 14 multiple sclerosis (MS) patients treated with oral high-dose (1 g) methylprednisolone for 3 days. MSFC and(More)
Unwanted side effects of pharmacologically active compounds can usually be eliminated by structural modifications. But the complex heterogeneous structure of the polysaccharide heparin has limited this approach to fragmentation, leading to slightly better-tolerated heparin preparations of low molecular mass. Despite this improvement, heparin-induced(More)
INTRODUCTION Adults with end-stage kidney disease (ESKD) treated with haemodialysis experience mortality of between 15% and 20% each year. Effective interventions that improve health outcomes for long-term dialysis patients remain unproven. Novel and testable determinants of health in dialysis are needed. Nutrition and dietary patterns are potential factors(More)
OBJECTIVE This study aims to assess the response and safety of the treatment of multiple sclerosis (MS) episodes with high oral doses of methylprednisolone (MP) and to investigate the correlation between expanded disability status scale (EDSS) and MS functional composite (MSFC) during recovery from relapses. METHOD Patients consecutively diagnosed of(More)
Even though it is widely known that interleukin (IL)-1 alpha acts at the local level, it is still uncertain whether IL-1 alpha is secreted into the circulation and acts at distant sites. We have tried to elucidate this by measuring 24-hour levels of total IL-1 alpha in six healthy female volunteers. Subjects had detectable and pulsatile levels of IL-1 alpha(More)
This panel focuses on computer science research and educational activities involving minorities. In addition to highlighting various research in progress, this panel will emphasize how research at a given institution has impacted the corresponding computer curriculum. Specific information to be discussed by the panel will include: 1) a brief overview of(More)
An important area of application of computer vision is the detection of object motion. We are currently developing a computer vision system to automatically detect and track human motion across the international border between the United States and Mexico. Because of the wide range of environmental conditions, this application represents a stringent test of(More)
