Recent studies have associated short-term exposure to respirable particulate matter (PM10) exposure with peak flow decrements, increased symptoms of respiratory irritation, increased use of asthma medications, and increased hospitalization for asthma. Increased mortality from chronic respiratory disease has also been reported. To help confirm whether PM10(More)
Following consensus meetings of the two parent organizations, a new World Health Organization-European Organization for Research and Treatment of Cancer (WHO-EORTC) classification for primary cutaneous lymphomas has recently been published. This important development will now end the ongoing debate as to which of these was the preferred classification. The(More)
Eighteen patients who developed cutaneous reactions to red tattoos were studied to identify the chemicals responsible for the reactions to modern red tattoo pigments. Biopsies from the tattoos were examined histologically and the chemical composition of the red pigments was analysed by X-ray microanalysis. A variety of metallic elements including aluminium,(More)
We address the problem of allowing authorized users, who have yet to establish a secret key, to <i>securely</i> and <i>efficiently</i> exchange key establishment messages over an insecure channel in the presence of jamming and message insertion attacks. This problem was first introduced by Strasser, P&#246;pper, &#268;apkun, and &#268;agalj in their recent(More)
After 140 years from the discovery of Golgi’s black reaction, the study of connectivity of the cerebellum remains a fascinating yet challenging task. Current histological techniques provide powerful methods for unravelling local axonal architecture, but the relatively low volume of data that can be acquired in a reasonable amount of time limits their(More)
Microscopic studies have been performed on skin biopsies from five patients with occupational argyria. Small brown-black granules were present in the dermis on light microscopy and were intensely refractile with dark-field illumination. Electron microscopy showed that the granules were electron-dense, round or oval in shape and varied in size from 30 nm to(More)
