Advances in genomics and proteomics are dramatically increasing the need to evaluate large numbers of molecular targets for their diagnostic, predictive or prognostic value in clinical oncology. Conventional molecular pathology techniques are often tedious, time-consuming, and require a lot of tissue, thereby limiting both the number of tissues and the(More)
BACKGROUND Patients hospitalized on acute psychogeriatric wards are a heterogeneous population. Cluster analysis is a useful statistical method for partitioning a sample of patients into well separated groups of patients who present common characteristics. Several patient profile studies exist, but they are not adapted to acutely hospitalized(More)
Pre-clinical studies using murine models are critical for understanding the pathophysiological mechanisms underlying immune-mediated disorders such as Eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE). In this study, an optical coherence tomography (OCT) system capable of providing three-dimensional images with axial and transverse resolutions of 5 µm and 10 µm, respectively,(More)
We present the concept of an 'epileptic syndrome' which is important for prognostic statements and the application of appropriate therapeutic measures. We then discuss the epileptic seizure and the assessment of suspected seizure, indications for admission to a hospital, diagnostic measures (EEG, CT scan, laboratory tests, lumbal puncture, MRI scan, PET(More)
