Greece is the only European Union member state that in 2008 included hepatitis A (HAV) vaccine in the routine national childhood immunization program (NCIP). Given that the resources allocated to public health have dramatically decreased since 2008 and that Greece is a low endemicity country for the disease, the benefit from universal vaccination has been(More)
The present study examines quality of life (QoL) and psychiatric symptomatology prior to and upon completion of a 5-week in-patient detoxification programme with the aim to identify any changes produced following clinical intervention. A group of 46 alcohol-dependent individuals, who were consecutively admitted for detoxification in the Psychiatric Hospital(More)
Τhe present study examines main psychometric properties of the World Health Organisation (WHO) quality of life (QoL) instrument, the WHOQOL-BREF with the inclusion of four national items. Participants were 425 adult native Greek speaking, grouped into patients with physical disorders, psychiatric disorders and healthy individuals. Participants were(More)
Temporally extended goals are critical to the specification of a diversity of real-world planning problems. Here we examine the problem of planning with temporally extended goals over both finite and infinite traces where actions can be non-deterministic, and where temporally extended goals are specified in linear temporal logic (LTL). Unlike existing LTL(More)
BACKGROUND/AIM Vitamin D (vitD) levels are positively associated with bone health and seasonality affects serum vit D. The aim of the study was to investigate the degree of seasonal variation on 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25(OH)D) serum levels in a population-based cohort of post-menopausal women with osteoporosis. PATIENTS AND METHODS Serum levels of 25(OH)D(More)
We describe two different cases of prinary thyroid lymphoma (PTL). PTL is a rare malignancy. Nevertheless, it frequently presents diagnostic and therapeutic challenges. The first patient, a 79-year-old female, presented with a large, painless thyroid mass accompanied by severe obstructive symptoms of the upper respiratory and gastrointestinal track. The(More)
The stubborn set method is a state-space reduction technique, originally introduced in model checking and then transfered to classical planning. It was shown that stubborn sets significantly improve the performance of optimal determinis-tic planners by considering only a subset of applicable operators in a state. Fully observable nondeterministic planning(More)
BACKGROUND/AIM Medullary thyroid carcinoma (MTC) originates from thyroid C-cells and is a calcitonin-secreting tumor. Calcitonin is also elevated in C-cell hyperplasia (CCH). The objective of the study was to determine the optimal basal (bCT) and peak stimulated calcitonin (psCT) cut-off value for differentiating MTC from CCH, and to examine the(More)
In this work, we evaluate different sentence encoders with emphasis on examining their embedding spaces. Specifically , we hypothesize that a " high-quality " embedding aids in generalization, promoting transfer learning as well as zero-shot and one-shot learning. To investigate this, we modify Skipthought vectors to learn a more generalizable space by(More)
