This article describes our conceivability of a software platform, which should facilitate collaboration, coordination and communication within virtual-networked cooperations in the context of civil and building engineering projects. These cooperations are characterized by highly dynamic structures and complex heterogeneities, frequently leading to problems(More)
We present a new approach to regulate traffic-related pollution in urban environments by utilizing hybrid vehicles. To do this, we orchestrate the way that each vehicle in a large fleet combines its two engines based on simple communication signals from a central infrastructure. Our approach can be viewed both as a control algorithm and as an optimization(More)
Preeclampsia (PE) is characterized by widespread endothelial damage with hypertension, proteinuria, glomeruloendotheliosis and elevated soluble Flt-1 (sFlt-1), a natural occurring antagonist of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF). Cancer patients receiving anti-VEGF therapy exhibit similar symptoms. We suggested that a decrease in circulating sFlt-1(More)
We present a concise version of the complete SPIDER SPIT prevention framework. The deliverable includes an analysis of the SPIT phenomenon and the necessity for a reliable and effective anti-SPIT architecture. Moreover, the document includes a detailed description of the SPIDER infrastructure and its underlying modules. It finally includes a comprehensive(More)
Proneurotensin/neuromedin N (pro NT/NMN) is the common precursor of two biologically active peptides, neurotensin (NT) and neuromedin N (NMN). We have established antibodies against peptide sequences of the NT/NMN precursor and developed a sandwich immunoassay for the detection of pro NT/NMN immunoreactivity in human circulation. Endogenous pro NT/NMN(More)
In this report, we describe a newly developed sandwich immunoassay using antibodies against the proenkephalin A 119-159 peptide (PENK A 119-159). PENK A 119-159 immunoreactivity was detectable in the circulation of human blood donors and in cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) of patients without a neurologic disorder. The concentration was about 100 times higher in(More)
Integrated access to the many heterogeneous and distributed sources of Geo data is an important precondition in order to facilitate the investigation of global processes like temporal development of ecosystems. The object oriented paleoecological information system OPALIS aims to support interoperability of various data sources. While retaining the(More)
