BACKGROUND The prevalence of epilepsy added to inadequate treatment results in chronic morbidity and considerable mortality in poor populations. Neurocysticercosis (NCC), a helminthic disease of the central nervous system, is a leading cause of seizures and epilepsy in most of the world. METHODS Taking advantage of a cysticercosis elimination program, we(More)
High-performance reconfigurable computers (HPRCs) are parallel computers but with added FPGA chips. Examples of such systems are the Cray XT5<sub>h</sub> and Cray XD1, the SRC-7 and SRC-6, and the SGI Altix/RASC. The execution of parallel applications on HPRCs mainly follows the single-program multiple-data (SPMD) model, which is largely the case in(More)
Processor architectures with large instruction windows have been proposed to expose more instruction-level parallelism (ILP) and increase performance. Some of the proposed architectures replace a re-order buffer (ROB) with a check-pointing mechanism and an out-of-order release of processor resources. Check-pointing, however, leads to an imprecise processor(More)
INTRODUCTION In home mechanical ventilation (HMV), the mask is a key factor for patient comfort and therapeutic adherence. There is no evidence on the best strategy for choosing the mask in HMV. OBJECTIVE To explore patient preference when prescribing the mask for HMV treatment and assess its relationship with effectiveness. METHODS A prospective study(More)
BACKGROUND Nocturnal home pulse oximetry (NHPO) provides information by measuring a series of variables: time spent with SaO(2) <90% expressed as percentage (T90) or in minutes (Tm90), mean SaO(2) (MnS), and lowest SaO(2) (LwS.) The presence of significant nocturnal desaturation has been proposed as a parameter in decision making with regard to initiating(More)
Complexity in parallel computation for current HPC systems has being modeled in order to estimate time and energy consumption, which have been conduced to evaluate real costs. Communication analytical models for time and energy comsumption are an attractive issue as part of this cost analysis in parallel computation. In this paper, we present time and(More)
The main aim of this paper was to assess the in vitro response of healthy and coeliac human faecal microbiota to gluten-friendly bread (GFB). Thus, GFB and control bread (CB) were fermented with faecal microbiota in pH-controlled batch cultures. The effects on the major groups of microbiota were monitored over 48 h incubations by fluorescence in situ(More)
