The Taverna workflow tool suite (http://www.taverna.org.uk) is designed to combine distributed Web Services and/or local tools into complex analysis pipelines. These pipelines can be executed on local desktop machines or through larger infrastructure (such as supercomputers, Grids or cloud environments), using the Taverna Server. In bioinformatics, Taverna(More)
Scientific data represents a significant portion of the linked open data cloud and scientists stand to benefit from the data fusion capability this will afford. Publishing linked data into the cloud, however, doesn’t ensure the required reusability. Publishing has requirements of provenance, quality, credit, attribution and methods to provide the(More)
The Taverna workflow management system is an open source project with a history of widespread adoption within multiple experimental science communities, and a longterm ambition of effectively supporting the evolving need of those communities for complex, data-intensive, service-based experimental pipelines. This paper describes how the recently overhauled(More)
Over a five-year period 245 patients with uveitis were investigated at the Uveitis Clinic, Sydney Eye Hospital, for possible aetiological and relevant disease associations. Uveitis was anterior in 75% of patients, posterior in 21% and generalized in 4%. Anterior uveitis (AU) was idiopathic in 52% of cases. In patients tested for the HLA-B27 antigen, 47%(More)
We present a case of rapid progressive unilateral visual loss in a 69-year-old woman who presented with facial pain, ipsilateral proptosis and restriction of eye movements, and nasal symptoms suggestive of sinusitis. A diagnosis of allergic aspergillus sinusitis was made on the basis of local histopathology and systemic features. Over a three-week period(More)
We report a meta-analysis of randomised, controlled, clinical trials of systemic anti-fibrinolytics in traumatic hyphaema. Outcome measures were rate of secondary haemorrhage and final visual acuity. An estimate of the overall odds ratio for each outcome measure was calculated both by combining the logarithms of the odds ratios, and by the Mantel-Haenszel(More)
Knowledge-intensive applications pose new challenges to metadata management, including distribution, access control, uniformity of access, and evolution in time. This paper identifies general requirements for metadata management and describes a simple model and service that focuses on RDF metadata to address these requirements.
PURPOSE To evaluate the role of botulinum toxin A (BTA) in treating patients with diminished visual acuity secondary to acquired nystagmus and oscillopsia. METHODS Twelve patients with acquired nystagmus causing oscillopsia and reduced vision were treated with injection of BTA. Botulinum toxin A was injected directly into the horizontal recti in three(More)
Two cases are presented in which multiple episodic retrobulbar botulinum toxin injections have diminished incapacitating acquired oscillopsia and nystagmus and improved visual acuity. One transient ptosis occurred in six procedures. Improvement duration averaged approximately three months. This is a simple, safe and effective therapy where alternative(More)
