A b s t r a c t Objectives: The authors discuss the usability of an automated tool that supports entry, by clinical experts, of the knowledge necessary for forming high-level concepts and patterns from raw time-oriented clinical data. from raw time-oriented clinical data, the authors designed a graphical knowledge acquisition (KA) tool that acquires the(More)
OBJECTIVE To examine the effect of unemployment on natural killer cell cytotoxicity (NKCC) and, in a subsample of persons who become re-employed, to determine if, after termination of the stressor, immune values recover to levels similar to matched controls.
