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)
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)
An open, randomized trial was performed to determine the optimal dosage schedule with regard to the efficacy and safety of cyclosporin in severe atopic dermatitis. The study also provided clinical experience with regard to the efficacy and safety of long-term cyclosporin treatment. During a 2-month dose-finding period, 78 patients with severe, long-standing(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)
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)
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)
Introduction: The present conditions at the surface of Mars are not conducive to the survival of life forms, with the thin atmosphere, lack of water, a highly-oxidising regolith and significant UV insolation. The Antarctic provides a terrestrial model with a transect from the maritime, where epilithic colonies can survive through the production of(More)
