A newly described organism called CLB (coccidian-like or cyanobacterium-like body) has been identified in cases of prolonged diarrhoea. To confirm an association of CLB with disease and identify risk factors for transmission, we conducted a case-control study of travellers and foreign residents at two outpatient clinics in Kathmandu, Nepal. Patients without(More)
Cyclospora is a coccidian (previously referred to as cyanobacterium-like bodies) that has been implicated in cases of prolonged diarrhoea. The average duration of symptoms is more than three weeks, and no specific treatment has been shown to shorten the illness. A case report suggested that co-trimoxazole may be effective. Expatriate persons with(More)
Understanding the milliscale (temporal and spatial) dynamics of the human brain activity requires high-resolution modeling of head electromagnetics and source localization of EEG data. We have developed an automated environment to construct individualized computational head models from image segmentation and to estimate conductivity parameters using(More)
Vibrio cholerae O139 Bengal emerged on the Indian subcontinent in late 1992 and was first recognized in Thailand in 1993. To characterize the epidemiology of this disease, a hospital-based case-control study was conducted in Samutsakorn, a port city 30 km southwest of Bangkok. Between November 15, 1993, and June 3, 1994, 366 patients were confirmed to have(More)
Original approval signatures are on file with the University of Oregon Graduate School. While the message-passing paradigm, seen in programming models such as MPI and UPC, has provided a solution for efficiently programming on distributed memory computer systems, this approach is not a panacea for the needs of all scientists. The traditional method of(More)
