An adaptive, highly scalable, and robust web caching system is needed to effectively handle the exponential growth and extreme dynamic environment of the World Wide Web. Our work presented last year sketched out the basic design of such a system [31]. This sequel paper reports our progress over the past year. To assist caches making Web query forwarding(More)
BACKGROUND Medication errors at the interfaces of care are highly prevalent. This study aims to identify unintentional medication discrepancies at hospital admission and to explore their potential clinical impact in elderly patients. METHOD The study was conducted in an Internal Medicine Department. Patients ≥ 65 years admitted through the emergency(More)
— Web caching is generally acknowledged as an important service for alleviating focused overloads when certain web servers' contents suddenly become popular. Cooperative caching systems are more effective than independent caches due to the larger collective backing store that cooperation creates. One such system currently being developed at UCLA, Adaptive(More)
Acrodermatitis enteropathica is rare autosomal recessive disorder characterized by a severe nutritional zinc deficiency. We and others have recently identified the human gene encoding an intestinal zinc transporter of the ZIP family, SLC39A4, as the mutated gene in acrodermatitis enteropathica (AE). A first mutation screening in 8 AE families (15 patients(More)
This chapter examines the integration of content-based event notification systems with workflow management. This is motivated by the need for dynamic, data-driven application systems which can dynamically discover, ingest data from, and interact with other application systems, including physical systems with online sensors and actuators. This requires(More)
PURPOSE A growing number of patients today receive anticoagulants. These drugs can cause serious adverse reactions leading to patients' hospitalization. The present study aimed to assess the number of hospital admissions as a result of anticoagulant adverse reactions in Alsace, a French region of 1.8 million inhabitants, and to estimate the economic burden(More)
