OBJECTIVE This paper describes state of the art, scientific publications and ongoing research related to the methods of analysis of respiratory sounds. METHODS AND MATERIAL Review of the current medical and technological literature using Pubmed and personal experience. RESULTS The study includes a description of the various techniques that are being(More)
The shortening of the design cycle and the increase of the performance are nowadays the main challenges in aerodynamic design. The use of evolutionary algorithms (EAs) seems to be appropriate in a preliminary phase, due to their ability to broadly explore the design space and obtain global optima. Evolutionary algorithms have been hybridized with metamodels(More)
Cationic host-defence antimicrobial peptides are recognised as an important component of the innate immune response in most multicellular organisms. In humans, several antimicrobial peptides have recently been recognised as key factors in the pathology of diseases such as cystic fibrosis, septic shock, atopic dermatitis and morbus Kostmann. To date, several(More)
We report the case of an 82-year-old patient, hospitalized for malaise. Her clothes were infested by numerous insects and the entomological analysis identified them as being Cimex lectularius (bed bugs). The history of the patient highlighted severe cognitive impairment. The biological assessment initially showed a profound microcytic, aregenerative, iron(More)
Peripheral blood natural killer (NK) cells from patients with transporter associated with antigen processing (TAP) deficiency are hyporesponsive. The mechanism of this defect is unknown, but the phenotype of TAP-deficient NK cells is almost normal. However, we noticed a high percentage of CD56(bright) cells among total NK cells from two patients. We further(More)
BACKGROUND Little data is currently available in the literature on neutropenia and agranulocytosis in the elderly, and, to our knowledge, idiosyncratic drug-induced agranulocytosis is particularly poorly covered, or not at all. OBJECTIVE We herein describe the clinical picture and outcome of patients aged ≥75 years with established idiosyncratic(More)
The aim of the study was to report the clinical, biological, and pathological characteristics of patients with glomerulonephritis (GN) secondary to systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE)/antineutrophil cytoplasmic antibodies (ANCA)-associated vasculitis (AAV) overlap syndrome.A nationwide survey was conducted to identify cases of SLE/AAV overlap syndrome. Data(More)
Chronic diseases are one of the most difficult challenges to the beginning of the twentieth century. Monitoring patients with chronic diseases, especially in chronic heart failure or diabetes mellitus, using telemedicine systems is a potential means for optimizing the management of these patients, even in elderly patients. The e-care project is developing(More)
