We describe three patients who developed small fibre neuropathy after 1 month of statin therapy with clinical resolution upon prompt drug withdrawal. All patients showed abnormal sympathetic skin responses (SSR) in comparison with controls. SSRs returned to normal in tandem with clinical improvement. One patient redeveloped small and large fibre neuropathy(More)
Cardiovascular disease poses a major challenge for the 21st century, exacerbated by the pandemics of obesity, metabolic syndrome and type 2 diabetes. While best standards of care, including high-dose statins, can ameliorate the risk of vascular complications, patients remain at high risk of cardiovascular events. The Residual Risk Reduction Initiative (R3i)(More)
The rat is a frequently used experimental model in studies involving human disease. We review several methods of inducing hepatic fibrosis and cirrhosis in rats. These include induction by hepatotoxins and hepatocarcinogens such as carbon tetrachloride, dimethylnitrosamine, thioacetamide and furan; the hepatoxin-cum-nutrient, alcohol; a high fat-low(More)
A radiochemical method for selective measurement of postheparin lipase activities was adapted to analyze lipoprotein lipase and hepatic lipase in preheparin plasma. The assay sensitivity was increased about four-fold by doubling both the volume of plasma used and the volume of lipolytic products taken for liquid scintillation counting, and was further(More)
In an IEEE 802.11 Infrastructure network, as the mobile node is moving from one access point to another, the resource allocation and smooth hand off may be a problem. If some reliable prediction is done on mobile node's next move, then resources can be allocated optimally as the mobile node moves around. This would increase the performance throughput of(More)
the mobile node moves from one access point to another, the active connections will not be badly dropped if the handoff is smooth and if there are sufficient resources reserved in the target access point. In a 5x5 grid of access points, within a 6x6 grid of regions, by location tracking and data mining, we predict the mobility pattern of mobile node with(More)
– Mobile ad hoc networking (MANET) is a growing technology that can support the operation of adaptive wireless networks. With the increased demand rate of wireless applications it is useful to have more adaptive and self-organizing technologies that adapt to changes within a network region. In this paper we initially present a brief listing of table driven(More)

The search for more computationally efficient algorithm is mandatory for PAPR reduction especially in OFDM systems employing a large number of sub-channels. Even though the proposed genetic algorithm in [2] has reduced the computational complexity of the search to obtain a sub-optimum solution but we found that there are other techniques such as the(More)
We investigate the performance of a pre-equalised OFDM system compared to that of a conventional OFDM system in a broadband fixed wireless access (BFWA) environment. Issues such as channel estimation requirements, signal power analysis and sub-channel blocking are investigated. Computer simulation results for pre-equalised and conventional systems in a(More)
