Recently introduced "second-generation" techniques for specific IgE measurement have produced some analytical improvement, offering better clinical sensitivity than previous techniques. The aims of our study were to compare the analytical and clinical performances of four second-generation techniques for allergen-specific IgE measurement in serum and to(More)
AIM To validate the use of tear eosinophil cationic protein (ECP) as a marker for eosinophil activation, and its pharmacological modulation, in addition to evaluating the efficacy of lodoxamide and sodium cromoglycate in the treatment of vernal keratoconjunctivitis (VKC). METHODS Tears were collected from 30 patients affected by active mild to moderate(More)
— We address the problem of designing an energy management system for a small scale micro-grid comprising a chiller plant and a cooling load representing some zone. The energy management task involves distributing the cooling power request among the chillers constituting the chiller plant, and modulating the temperature set-point of the zone so as to save(More)
This paper concerns the design of an energy management system for a building cooling system that includes a chiller plant (with two or more chiller units), a thermal storage unit, and a cooling load. The latter is modeled in a probabilistic framework to account for the uncertainty in the building occupancy. The energy management task essentially consists in(More)
