The aqueous extract of Croton cuneatus Klotz. (Euphorbiaceae), was tested for its antinociceptive effects using chemical and thermal test models in mice. Anti-inflammatory activity was determined in Sprague-Dawley rats in a model of acute plantar inflammation induced by bovine serum albumin. Croton cuneatus aqueous extract at doses of 7 mg/kg showed a(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the effectiveness of the nutritional supplement developed for the Oportunidades programme on growth, prevalence of anaemia, morbidity and cognitive function of pre-school children. DESIGN In a randomised, placebo-controlled longitudinal trial, children were assigned to one of three experimental treatment groups: Oportunidades food(More)
commissioned this report to assess experience with and recommend designs for financial risk management instruments (FRMIs) that support scaled-up delivery and financing of small scale renewable energy (SSRE) projects. The assessment will provide guidance to the UNEP and the Global Environment Facility (GEF) to inform designs of future UNEP, GEF and other(More)
Using a national curve of fetal growth development, clinical and laboratory characteristics of 100 term neonates small for dates and 130 term adequate for gestational age newborns are studied. A 91% of the small for dates were classified by the ponderal index as having symmetrical growth retardation. At the same time in the 230 mothers we look for clinical(More)
In previous task matching research the power agnostic Min-Min algorithms has been found to be an effective matching algorithm and has been used as a benchmark in numerous studies. Our study has enhanced these algorithms with the addition of the energy delay product (EDP) resulting in an improved Min-Min that takes both power and execution time into account.(More)
The affinity with which each thread executes can significantly impact both the execution time and power consumption of parallel applications. Finding an optimal mapping of threads to cores is a considerable challenge as it requires runtime tracking and analysis of many interacting system elements. As we head towards the exascale era, and gear up for HPC(More)
