The single-dose pharmacokinetics of cefotaxime (CTX) and desacetylcefotaxime (dCTX) after a 50.0 mg/kg intravenous dose were evaluated in 18 very low birth weight neonates (13 male; 1015.6 +/- 349.8 gm; 28.4 +/- 2.4 weeks gestational age) during the first week of life. Microanalytic high-performance liquid chromatography was used to quantitate both CTX and(More)

The data indicate that this finding is suggestive of reflux: the greater the difference between the two sides, the more likely the patient is to reflux.

The proliferation of e-learning programmes offers new opportunities and challenges for universities to meet the learning needs of new student markets. However, the use of e-learning as an enabling mechanism(More)
ii iii ABSTRACT This thesis describes LPthread (Loop Parallelization Thread), a thread model designed to aid the process of exploiting thread-level parallelism in sequential programs through loop parallelization. The LPthread model provides a deadlock-free environment for exploiting loop parallelization by imposing thread creation constraints and by(More)
