OBJECTIVE To study the reliability of a proving methodology and the reproducibility of proving symptoms. METHODS Two homeopathic medicines and placebo were given, in a double-blind randomized design, to 31 healthy volunteers (13 Piper methysticum 30C, 11 placebo and 7 Plumbum metallicum 30C), 5 drops 4 times daily, until the onset of unbearable symptoms,(More)
With shrinking device dimensions and decreasing product-development cycles, fully-automated TCAD analysis of complete semiconductor processes and devices is becoming increasingly important. We present a programmable simulation environment for VLSI technology analysis, focusing on high-level tasks including response surface modeling (RSM) and optimization.(More)
BACKGROUND Allergy to celery is often associated with sensitization to birch and/or mugwort pollen. OBJECTIVE AND METHODS In a multi-centre study, sera from 23 patients suffering from type 1 allergy to celery and 15 patients with positive celery RAST but no clinical sensitization were compared.

INTRODUCTION Sedentary lifestyle is a major risk factor for diabetes, cardiovascular and many other age-related diseases. Heart rate variability (HRV) reflects the function of regulatory systems of internal organs and may sensitively indicate early metabolic disturbances. We hypothesize that quantitative and qualitative changes of HRV in young subjects may(More)
SCOPE Xanthohumol (XN) is a hop flavonoid found in beers and refreshment drinks. Results of in vitro and animal studies indicate that it causes beneficial health effects due to DNA protective, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and phytoestrogenic properties. Aim of the present study was to find out if XN causes alterations of health-related parameters in(More)
Xanthohumol (XN) is a hop flavonoid contained in beers and soft drinks. In vitro and animal studies indicated that XN has DNA and cancer protective properties. To find out if it causes DNA protective effects in humans, an intervention trial was conducted in which the participants (n = 22) consumed a XN containing drink (12 mg XN/P/d). We monitored(More)
