The Sentinel satellite constellation series, developed by the European Space Agency, represents the dedicated space component of the European Copernicus program, committed to long-term operational services in a wide range of application domains. Here, we address the potential of the Sentinel-1 mission for mapping and monitoring the surface velocity of(More)
Terbinafine is an allylamine antifungal compound shown to be effective in the oral treatment of onychomycosis. Because of the fungicidal activity of the drug, a shorter duration of treatment, compared with the currently used oral treatment modalities, can be expected in onychomycosis of the toenail. In the present randomized study, the efficacy of oral(More)
Between 1978 and 1982 an experiment on group treatment for and by psoriasis sufferers was conducted, based on a pyramid of previous investigations since 1968. Each group was facilitated by a duo consisting of a fellow sufferer and a physician, both having trained together. The subjects practiced the procedure described, directed toward self-care and mutual(More)
This double-blind, parallel group study compared a 2-week course of terbinafine 250 mg/day with a 4-week course of itraconazole 100 mg/day. A total of 190 patients were enrolled, of whom 129 were evaluable for efficacy. At week 8, 69% of patients treated with terbinafine were classified as effectively treated (mycological cure, and clinical assessment total(More)
With its temporal resolution of 10 days (five days with two satellites, and significantly more at high latitudes), its swath width of 290 km, and its 10 m and 20 m spatial resolution bands from the visible to the shortwave infrared, the European Sentinel-2 satellites have significant potential for glacier remote sensing, in particular mapping of glacier(More)
Pseudomonic acid, a new wide-spectrum antimicrobial agent, was evaluated as a 2% formulation in a cream. Animal studies showed that this formulation was just capable of penetrating the skin. When administered parenterally to animals, pseudomonic acid was converted to inactive metabolites that were quickly eliminated from the body. When pseudomonic acid was(More)
Seventy-three patients with psoriasis were treated in an open multicenter study with betamethasone dipropionate 0.05 percent cream (twice daily application for four days) alternated with the cream base (twice daily application for three days). The therapeutic response at the end of the treatment period of three weeks was very satisfactory: 39 patients had(More)
Group treatment for and by psoriasis patients was the subject of a trial. For 12 sessions over a period of 3 months, a fellow sufferer as co-helper cooperated with a professional specialist as co-worker according to the so-called duo formula. When the results were compared with those in a control group, the patients showed a change in the dimensions(More)
