OBJECTIVES The purpose of the present study is to report the five-year follow-up results of the ERACI II trial. BACKGROUND Immediate and one-year follow-up results of the ERACI II study showed a prognosis advantage of percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) with stents over coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG). METHODS A total of 450 patients were(More)
Targeting the surface of malignant cells has evolved into a cornerstone in cancer therapy, paradigmatically introduced by the success of humoral immunotherapy against CD20 in malignant lymphoma. However, tumor cell susceptibility to immunochemotherapy varies, with mostly a fatal outcome in cases of resistant disease. Here, we show that lymphoma exosomes(More)
OBJECTIVE To conduct a pilot study comparing the effects of quetiapine and placebo for the treatment of depressive episodes in adolescents with bipolar I disorder. METHOD Thirty-two adolescents (ages 12-18 years) with a depressive episode associated with bipolar I disorder were randomized to eight weeks of double-blind treatment with quetiapine, 300-600(More)
UNLABELLED In previous studies with glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) we have observed that this peptide modulates fluid intake and increases renal sodium excretion in healthy volunteers and in patients with diabetes mellitus type 2. The effect of GLP-1 on thirst, water intake and on osmoregulation has, however, not been examined in detail in humans. (More)
Implicit authentication (IA) uses behavioural biometrics to provide continuous authentication on smartphones. IA has been advocated as more usable when compared to traditional explicit authentication schemes, albeit with some security limitations. Consequently researchers have proposed that IA provides a middle-ground for people who do not use traditional(More)
PURPOSE Although R-CHOP-based immunochemotherapy cures significant proportions of patients with aggressive B-cell lymphoma, tumor cell susceptibility to chemotherapy varies, with mostly fatal outcome in cases of resistant disease. We and others have shown before that export of cytostatic drugs contributes to drug resistance. Now we provide a novel approach(More)
Touch input implicit authentication (``touch IA'') employs behavioural biometrics like touch location and pressure to continuously and transparently authenticate smartphone users. We provide the first ever evaluation of targeted mimicry attacks on touch IA and show that it fails against shoulder surfing and offline training attacks. Based on experiments(More)

Illustrations of human movements are used to communicate ideas and convey instructions in many domains, but creating them is time-consuming and requires skill. We introduce DemoDraw, a multi-modal approach to generate these illustrations as the user physically demonstrates the movements. In a Demonstration Interface, DemoDraw segments speech and 3D joint(More)

We introduce techniques enabling interactive guidance for better self-portrait photos ("selfies") using a smartphone cam- era. Aesthetic quality is estimated using empirical models for three parameterized composition principles: face size, face position, and lighting direction. The models are built using 2,700 crowdworker assessments of highly-controlled(More)
