A multi-centre controlled trial of steroid treatment of the nephrotic syndrome was carried out on 125 patients. Of these, 64 were controls and 61 received prednisone in a recommended dose range of 20-30 mg./24 hours. The actual initial dose averaged 29 mg./24 hours. Treatment was continued for a variable period, but not less than six months. More than 10(More)

Muscular atonia and cortical desynchronization, two signs of desynchronized sleep, can be enhanced or suppressed by direct injection of carbachol into the pontine brain stem of cats. The positive effects are graded, being maximal in the gigantocellular tegmental field and less marked in adjacent nuclei. These positive effects are dose-dependent. Suppressive(More)
Note onset detection is one of the most investigated tasks in Music Information Retrieval (MIR) and various detection methods have been proposed in previous research. The primary aim of this paper is to investigate different fusion policies to combine existing onset detectors, thus achieving better results. Existing algorithms are fused using three(More)

The relative burden of different diseases is a legitimate component in the consideration of priorities for biomedical research. Simple prevalence statistics do not directly reflect the different burdens on services imposed by diseases of comparable prevalence. This paper sets out for each 54 categories of disease five indices of the burden on services,(More)
