The respondents identified exercise dependent patients as likely to continue physical activity when injured. They were described in terms such as anxious, obsessive, overachieving and addicted to feelings. The majority(More)
The overall success of computer-based products and systems is dependent to a significant extent on their usability and usefulness in the intended context. User Centered Design (UCD) combines research-based methods with product design practices in ways that support the creation of useful and usable products and systems. In this paper we discuss common design(More)
BACKGROUND The majority of patients who suffer a ST-segment myocardial infarction (STEMI) are hospitalized for longer than 48 h. With the advent of reperfusion therapy, the benefits of such extended hospitalization has been questioned.

TCR degeneracy may facilitate self-reactive T cell activation and the initiation of an autoimmune response in multiple sclerosis (MS). MHC class II alleles of the DR2 haplotype DR2a (DRB5*0101) and DR2b (DRB1*1501) are associated with an increased risk for MS in Caucasian populations. In order to selectively expand and characterize T cells with a high(More)
