John Backus introduced the Functional Programming (FP) system, the variable-free applicative system having reduction semantics. Backus has also introduced a unique expansion technique for reasoning about a class of recursive FP programs. As a natural outgrowth of this expansion technique, an FP program synthesis methodology is described in this paper. The(More)
BACKGROUND Low serum sodium (Na) has been associated with decreased body mass index and increased cardiovascular mortality in haemodialysis (HD) patients. We examined the relationship between serum Na and selected nutritional parameters of protein energy wasting that are not affected from the hydration status in a cohort of HD patients. METHODS Triceps(More)
BACKGROUND Cardiovascular events are frequent and vascular endothelial function is abnormal in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD). We demonstrated endothelial dysfunction with vitamin D deficiency in CKD patients; however the impact of cholecalciferol supplementation on vascular stiffness and vasomotor function, endothelial and bone biomarkers in(More)
One of the major limitations to preclinical mouse therapeutic evaluation is the inherent difficulty in imaging small tumors in vivo. We present a rapid and reliable method to detect optic glioma (OPG) in a mouse neurofibromatosis-1 model (Nf1(flox/mut)GFAP-Cre mice) in vivo using Manganese-Enhanced Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MEMRI). In a blinded study, 23(More)
BACKGROUND/AIM The effect of hypertension on mortality in haemodialysis patients is controversial and can be confounded by non-traditional risk factors like systemic inflammation. This study examined the effect of systolic blood pressure (SBP), diastolic blood pressure (DBP), and pulse pressure (PP) on mortality in haemodialysis patients, separately with(More)
Individuals with neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1) are prone to develop optic pathway gliomas that can result in significant visual impairment. To explore the cellular basis for the reduced visual function resulting from optic glioma formation, we used a genetically engineered mouse model of Nf1 optic glioma (Nf1+/-(GFAP)CKO mice). We performed multimodal(More)
A 67-year-old man presented to the Accident and Emergency department in September 2004 with cough and sudden shortness of breath. In 2002, he had suffered a left occipital infarct that presented as a transient ischaemic attack. In 2003, he sustained bilateral cerebellar infarcts that left him with residual tremor and ataxia (Figure 1). He took regular(More)
Hutchison and colleagues report a 10-year experience of dialysis patients admitted to intensive care units (ICUs) in the UK excluding Scotland. Their study is the largest published so far and raises issues of interest to both ICU physicians and nephrologists. Overall, the dialysis patients, although sicker on admission and having pre-existing(More)
