Rituximab is a chimeric monoclonal antibody that specifically targets the CD20 surface marker expressed in neoplastic B-lymphoid cells. Combined with chemotherapy or alone, in maintenance/consolidation, it is used for the treatment of non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL). The role of a polymorphism in a specific Fc gamma receptor gene, FcgammaRIIa, in the clinical(More)
Chromosomal rearrangements affecting the MLL gene are associated with high-risk pediatric, adult and therapy-associated acute leukemia. In this study, conventional cytogenetic, fluorescence in situ hybridization, and molecular genetic studies were used to characterize the type and frequency of MLL rearrangements in a consecutive series of 45 Portuguese(More)
PURPOSE This paper describes proposed health care services innovations, provided by a system called CAALYX (Complete Ambient Assisted Living eXperiment). CAALYX aimed to provide healthcare innovation by extending the state-of-the-art in tele-healthcare, by focusing on increasing the confidence of elderly people living autonomously, by building on the(More)
Recent advances in mobile positioning systems and telecommunications are providing the technology needed for the development of location-aware tele-care applications. This paper introduces CAALYX--Complete Ambient Assisted Living Experiment, an EU-funded project that aims at increasing older people's autonomy and self-confidence by developing a wearable(More)
This paper describes the development, deployment and trial results from 9 volunteers using the eCAALYX system. The eCAALYX system is an ambient assisted living telemonitoring system aimed at older adults suffering with co-morbidity. Described is a raw account of the challenges that exist and results in bringing a Telemedicine system from laboratory to(More)
Celiac disease is an autoimmune disorder in which a genetic predisposition and the ingestion of wheat gluten triggers a deleterious immune response. This response is complex and may lead to manifestations other than enteropathyha: hepatitis, dermatitis and neuropathy. There is higher risk for neoplasia. We observed an atypical case, corresponding to a(More)
Conventional Silver/Silver-Chloride electrodes are inappropriate for routine high-density EEG and emerging new fields of application like brain computer interfaces. A novel multipin electrode design is proposed. It enables rapid and easy application while maintaining signal quality and patient comfort. The electrode design is described and impedance and EEG(More)
