RATIONALE Arikace is a liposomal amikacin preparation for aerosol delivery with potent Pseudomonas aeruginosa killing and prolonged lung deposition. OBJECTIVES To examine the safety and efficacy of 28 days of once-daily Arikace in cystic fibrosis (CF) patients chronically infected with P aeruginosa. METHODS 105 subjects were evaluated in double-blind,(More)
BACKGROUND Freezing of gait (FoG) is one of the most disturbing and least understood symptoms in Parkinson disease (PD). Although the majority of existing assistive systems assume accurate detections of FoG episodes, the detection itself is still an open problem. The specificity of FoG is its dependency on the context of a patient, such as the current(More)
Freezing of gait (FoG) is one of the most disturbing and least understood symptoms in Parkinson's disease (PD). One of the specifici-ties of FoG is its dependency on the context of the patient, such as current location or a task at hand. Recent advances in assistive technology have strived towards the realization of personal health systems able to prolong(More)
This paper examines the properties of haptic communication between two human operators using kinesthetic haptic devices in a collaborative task in a virtual environment. Twenty subjects, divided into 10 dyads, participated in a 2D pointing task. Each dyad consisted of a supervisor and an acting agent. The supervisor's role was to guide the acting agent(More)
The ability to identify the specific person in a home camera network is very relevant for healthcare applica­ tions where humans need to be observed daily in their living environment. The appearance based people identification in a domestic environment has many similarities with the problem of re-identification in public surveillance systems, but there are(More)
The Interleukin-23 signalling pathway is important for the differentiation of TH17 lymphocytes and is involved in the pathogenesis of Inflammatory bowel disease. Polymorphisms in the IL-23 receptor gene were previously found to be associated with Inflammatory bowel disease in various populations. The aim of this study was to determine whether the specific(More)
A new home tracking system based on a Microsoft Kinect sensor will help patients with the symptom of 'freezing of gait.' Freezing of gait (FoG) is a disabling symptom commonly occurring in the latter stages of Parkinson's disease. It is characterized by brief episodes of inability to step, or by extremely short steps that typically occur on gait initiation(More)
