We propose a multi-layer structure to mediate essential components in sound spatialization. This approach will facilitate artistic work with spatialization systems, a process which currently lacks structure, flexibility, and interoperability.
Serum samples from 82 patients with epithelial ovarian cancer, previously assayed for CA125, were assayed for circulating colony-stimulating factor 1 (CSF-1). An elevated CSF-1 concentration (> 450 U ml-1 or > 5.42 ng ml-1) was significantly associated with a worse survival (P = 0.02). The predictive value of raised CSF-1 levels was retained whether the… (More)
It has been shown that Brown-Norway rats develop an immune-type glomerulonephritis after treatment with various mercury-containing drugs. Anti-GBM antibodies were involved, at least in some animals. This glomerulonephritis induced a proteinuria. Strong evidence is given, suggesting that most mercury compounds, some of which, such as mercurial antiseptics,… (More)
In the field of granular decomposition of sound, the Matching Pursuit algorithm is particularly well suited in representing signals with simple sonic entities localized in time and frequency. Our main goal here is to extend this method towards a sound decomposition on a set of arbitrary microsounds leading to a more adaptive framework.
Granular Synthesis has found to be a particularly rich framework to synthesize varieties of different sound colours and textures. Our goal at GMEM is to design and develop a flexible environment, called " GMU " (for GMEM Mi-crosound Universe), dedicated to this synthesis method including analysis, transformations and synthesis algorithm. The proposal of… (More)
The course of mercuric chloride-induced immune glomerulonephritis is characterized by complement activation, intensive proteinuria, linear and then granular IgG and C3 deposits in the glomeruli. To assess the role of complement activation in the occurrence of the disease, decomplementation was achieved by intravenous injections of cobra venom factor in rats… (More)
To test the effect of cyclosporine A (CsA) in mercuric chloride (HgCl2)-induced nephritis in the Brown-Norway (BN) rat, we treated groups of intoxicated rats with varying doses of CsA for a period of 2 months. All manifestations of HgCl2-induced disease were prevented in rats treated concurrently with CsA at either 7 or 10 mg/kg/day. Partial suppression was… (More)
The effect of prostaglandin E1 on mercury-induced autoimmune disease in brown Norway rats has been investigated. Daily doses of 6 to 24 micrograms prolonged survival and significantly decreased proteinuria, deposition of immune reactants in the glomeruli, circulating anti-glomerular membrane antibody production, total serum IgE, and circulating immune… (More)
