A total of 20,599 samples from 4133 slaughter groups representing about 71 million broilers slaughtered between July 1,2001 and June 30, 2002 were tested for Campylobacter species. From each slaughter group, 40 cloacal samples and 10 samples of neck skin were taken from the carcases on the slaughter line and the samples were pooled, 10 to a pool.(More)
Worst-Case Execution Time (WCET) analysis has been around for some time now, but has so far not been much used to analyse real production codes. Here, we present a case study where static WCET analysis was used to find upper time bounds for time-critical regions in a commercial real-time operating system. We report on practical experiences from the work,(More)
The worst case execution time (WCET) of a task is a key component in the design and development of hard real-time systems. Malfunctional real-time systems could cause an aeroplane to crash or the anti-lock braking system in a car to stop working. Static WCET analysis is a method to derive WCET estimates of programs. Such analysis obtains a WCET estimate(More)
Frequent consumption of meat has been associated with an increased risk of colorectal cancer. Such a risk may be due to naturally occurring compounds in the meat, substances added to the meat, or agents formed during cooking. Concerning the latter alternative, mutagenic heterocyclic amines are multi-site animal carcinogens, but their relevance to human(More)
1. Vancomycin-resistant Enterococcus faecium (VRE(fm)) has recently spread among Swedish broiler farms. The objectives were to investigate VRE(fm) persistence within barns between flocks, and to determine whether day-old chicks, feed or forklift trucks used for loading crates could be identified as a means of transmission. 2. Faeces were collected for(More)
A Campylobacter monitoring program in broiler chickens was carried out in Sweden from 2001 through 2005. The objective was to reduce the occurrence of Campylobacter in the food chain through preventive measures, starting with primary production. The program involved collecting samples from all broiler flocks at slaughter and occasional additional times. The(More)
PURPOSE To investigate the effects of a hand-training programme on grip, pinch and wrist force, manual dexterity and activities of daily living, in adults with myotonic dystrophy type 1 (DM1). METHOD In this randomised controlled trial with a crossover design, 35 adults with DM1 were, after stratification for grip force, assigned by lot to two groups.(More)
