For the first time the immunonutritional role of pyruvate on neutrophils (PMN), free α-keto and amino acid profiles, important reactive oxygen species (ROS) produced [superoxide anion (O(2) (-)), hydrogen peroxide (H(2)O(2))] as well as released myeloperoxidase (MPO) acitivity has been investigated. Exogenous pyruvate significantly increased PMN pyruvate,(More)
In this paper, we develop and evaluate a hybrid classification method based on a combination of Artificial Immune Systems and Genetic Algorithms. Specifically, the new algorithm, called Genetic-AIRS, is a combination of the Artificial Immune Resource System (AIRS) algorithm with well-known evolutionary computation techniques. As a result, Genetic-AIRS is(More)
AIMS We sought to investigate the additional value of real-time three-dimensional transoesophageal echocardiography (RT 3D TOE)-guided sizing for predicting annuloplasty ring size during mitral valve repair. METHODS AND RESULTS In 53 patients undergoing elective mitral valve repair, an RT 3D TOE was performed pre- and post-operatively. The digitally(More)
This paper presents the inception and the basic concepts of a hybrid classification algorithm called Genetic-AIRS [1]. Genetic-AIRS, is a combination of the Artificial Immune Resource System (AIRS) algorithm witch uses evolutionary computation techniques. An analysis is presented to determine the final algorithm architecture and parameters. The paper also(More)
