The effect of soft-laser therapy on rheumatoid arthritis was evaluated in 17 patients with symmetrical involvement of the metacarpophalangeal joint of the index. Nine treatments with a He-Ne laser, 6 J/cm2, were given on the one hand with a sham irradiation of the other. The study was double-blind. The laser therapy gave some pain relief, but no difference(More)
The bone mineral content (BMC) in both forearms (highly correlated to total body calcium) was measured by photon absorptiometry in a representative sample of rheumatoid arthritis outpatients comprising 129 patients treated with either gold salts (n=29), penicillamine (n=61), prednisone (n=24), or other anti-RA drugs (n=15). The mean BMC value was 84% of(More)
HLA-A, B, C, D, and DR typing was performed in 104 patients with Juvenile Chronic Arthritis (JCA). The majority of these (88 patients) participated in a follow-up study of a series of consecutive patients including patients in remission. The study confirmed that JCA is positively associated with B27, Dw8, and possibly Dw5, and negatively associated with Dw2(More)
A method to generate modeled neutron spectra from bulk and fast ion distributions simulated by TRANSP has been developed. In this paper, modeled data generated from fuel ion distributions modeled with TRANSP is compared to measured data from two neutron spectrometers with different lines of sight; TOFOR with a radial one and the MPRu with a tangential one.(More)
Notwithstanding the advances of the past decades, significant developments are still needed to satisfactorily diagnose “burning plasmas.” D–T plasmas indeed require a series of additional measurements for the optimization and control of the configuration: the 14 MeV neutrons, the isotopic composition of the main plasma, the helium ash, and the(More)
The determination of the fuel ion ratio n(t)/n(d) in ITER is required at a precision of 20%, time resolution of 100 ms, spatial resolution of a/10, and over a range of 0.01<n(T)/n(D)<10. We use simplified but realistic Monte Carlo models of ITER to assess the possibility to use neutron emission spectroscopy (NES) for such measurements. We show that NES(More)
In this paper, we present a method to derive n(t)/n(d) using the ratio of the thermonuclear neutron emission to the beam-target neutron emission. We apply it to neutron spectroscopy data from the magnetic proton recoil spectrometer taken during the deuterium tritium experiment at JET. n(t)/n(d)-values obtained using neutron spectroscopy are in qualitative(More)
