But, cerebral venous thrombosis was not uncommon but neurologists and pathologists were not properly oriented regarding cerebral venous thrombosis(CVT) specially because the anatomical knowledge were not updated and nobody actually believed that thrombosis can occur in(More)
In order to model traffic stream speed resulting from complex interactions among different vehicle types in a heterogeneous/mixed traffic volume, an Artificial Neural Networks (ANN) approach is exploited. Two different categories of ANN model are attempted based on input vectors used. The performance of both categories of ANN model is evaluated using(More)
BACKGROUND The A1chieve, a multicentric (28 countries), 24-week, non-interventional study evaluated the safety and effectiveness of insulin detemir, biphasic insulin aspart and insulin aspart in people with T2DM (n = 66,726) in routine clinical care across four continents.
