INTRODUCTION Neuroblastoma, a neoplasm of the sympathetic nervous system, is the second most extracranial malignant solid tumor of childhood. Many therapeutic strategies has evolved over the last 20 years, based upon work by international cooperative groups and smaller cohort studies. Novel therapies to improve initial disease response and treatment of(More)
Postpartum psychosis is a mood disorder occurring up to 3 months after delivery. Incidence is one to two women every 1,000 live births. If not detected and appropriately treated in time, it may have detrimental effects on both the mother and her baby. We report a case of puerperal psychosis in a patient with a history of depression. We have also reviewed(More)
The paper presents the design and multi-parameter optimization of a networked embedded application for the health-care domain. Several hardware, software, and application parameters, such as clock frequency, sensor sampling rate, data packet rate, are tuned at design- and run-time according to application specifications and operating conditions to optimize(More)
Design of distributed embedded systems is a challenging task and it requires raising the level of abstraction to overcome the complexity of the design. In particular, modeling languages and semantic specification are necessary to address network description at high level of abstraction. Starting from this abstraction view, model manipulation is needed to(More)
Network design in distributed embedded applications is a novel challenging task which requires <i>1)</i> the extraction of communication requirements from application specification and <i>2)</i> the choice of channels and protocols connecting physical nodes. These issues are faced in the paper by adopting UML/MARTE as specification front-end and repository(More)
Verification of real time embedded systems is becoming more and more complex in terms of maintaining the code size and keeping equivalence between the specification. It requires the simulation of the system and the checking of its timing and functional properties as well as constraints. The paper presents a methodology which starts from UML sequence(More)
