One extension provides ontological concepts as an additional message attribute type, onto which(More)
Content-based networks (CBN), such as [1--3], have formed around the necessity to match a varying subscriber base to that of a networks publication creators. This "de-coupling" of the parties involved in the communication process allows for message routing to be conducted based on who <i>is interested</i> in a particular message, through a routing table(More)

In a randomised prospective trial 98 elderly women with trochanteric fractures of the femur were treated with either a 135 degrees Jewett nail-plate or a 135 degrees Dynamic hip screw. The results at six weeks, three months and six months were statistically analysed. There were no significant differences in the two groups with regard to pain, length of(More)
BACKGROUND Resistance and susceptibility to scrapie has been associated with single nucleotide polymorphisms located within codons 136, 154 and 171 of the ovine prion protein gene (PRNP). Dual-labelled HyBeacon probes were developed to analyse single and clustered polymorphisms within these and neighbouring codons. METHODS Extracted DNAs and unpurified(More)
Between January 1977 and January 1988, 19 patients with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) involving the ileocaecal region were cared for by the CRC Wessex Medical Oncology Unit.

Cuticular components of the green leaves of the Repandae section of theNicotiana species contain compounds that have been shown to be toxic to larvae of the tobacco hornworm larvae,Manduca sexta. The surface constituents of leaves of greenhouse-grownN. repanda, N. stocktonii, andN. nesophila were extracted with methylene chloride in order to isolate the(More)
Users of the web are increasingly interested in tracking the appearance of new postings rather than locating existing knowledge. Coupled with this is the emergence of the Web 2.0 movement (where everyone effectively publishes and subscribes), and the concept of the "Internet of Things". These trends bring into sharp focus the need for efficient distribution(More)
