A total of 125 β-thalassaemia patients receiving repeated blood transfusions were screened by Giemsa stain, Acridine-orange stain and antigen detection for evidence of malaria infection on each visit. A total of 8 (6.4%) of the patients developed post-transfusion malaria (PMT) as confirmed by tracing the infected blood donors. A high incidence of PTM in(More)
To reinforce interest of a general optimization algorithm obtained in a previous paper (Jolly et al., 2005), we consider three applications : an original one about control of cycles for a thermostat with anticipative resistance, a classical one with a new resolution for a car with two gears and a last one about an obstacle-avoidance problem in robotics.
