Olfactory ensheathing cells show promise in preclinical animal models as a cell transplantation therapy for repair of the injured spinal cord. This is a report of a clinical trial of autologous transplantation of olfactory ensheathing cells into the spinal cord in six patients with complete, thoracic paraplegia. We previously reported on the methods of(More)
Fifty-two patients with severe rheumatoid arthritis (RA) from four Australian centres were randomised to receive cyclosporin A (CSA) (n = 25) or azathioprine (AZA) (n = 27) for six months. Initial mean doses of CSA and AZA were 4.2 mg/kg and 1.7 mg/kg respectively. The mean doses of CSA and AZA at six months were 3.4 mg/kg and 1.9 mg/kg. Assessments of(More)
The EPSRC pilot project Meeting the Design Challenges of nanoCMOS Electronics (nanoCMOS) is focused upon delivering a production level e-Infrastructure to meet the challenges facing the semiconductor industry in dealing with the next generation of ‘atomic-scale’ transistor devices. This scale means that previous assumptions on the uniformity of transistor(More)
The $20m Australian Urban Research Infrastructure Network (AURIN) project (www.aurin.org.au) began in July 2010. AURIN has been tasked with developing a secure, Web-based virtual environment (e-Infrastructure) offering seamless, secure access to diverse, distributed and extremely heterogeneous data sets from numerous agencies with an extensive portfolio of(More)
Supporting distributed, research collaborations is a fundamental demand of e-Research infrastructures (e-Infrastructures). To be successful, e-Infrastructures must address the needs of all parties involved including end user researchers and associated stakeholders, e.g. organizations that make resources available. These needs often translate into ensuring(More)
The UK Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) funded project ¿Meeting the Design Challenges of nanoCMOS Electronics¿ (nanoCMOS) is developing a research infrastructure for collaborative electronics research across multiple institutions in the UK with especially strong industrial and commercial involvement. Unlike other domains, the(More)
In this paper, we present the functional capabilities scoping for a novel eResearch infrastructure providing urban researchers with access to datasets and analytical tools. The AURIN portal provides a "lab in a browser" environment, leveraging a complex, loosely-coupled internal architecture and a growing number of federated data sources. Datasets can be(More)
