In a double-blind trial, comprising 96 depressed patients, citalopram was compared with maprotiline. The trial period was 6 weeks with ratings (MADRS, CGI) and side effects recordings taking place at Weeks 0, 1, 2, 4, and 6. Both drugs were administered as a single evening dose, 40 or 60 mg for citalopram, and 75 or 150 mg for maprotiline. MADRS total(More)
Two selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs), citalopram and fluoxetine, both at a daily dose of 20 mg, were compared in patients with unipolar major depression treated in general practice. This was a multicentre, double-blind, randomized trial carried out in France. The duration of treatment was 8 weeks. Patients were assessed by means of the(More)
BACKGROUND Using a population-based register of the Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean region (Quebec, Canada), the genealogical reconstruction of 533 individuals with intracranial aneurysm (IA) showed a familial aggregation (the presence of aneurysm in two or more first- to third-degree relatives) for 159 (29.8%) of them; this proportion is much higher than reported(More)
The genealogies of 533 individuals with an intracranial aneurysm (IA) born in the Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean region, a geographically isolated area located in northeastern Quebec, were reconstructed using a population-based register. A control group consisting of three individuals of the same sex and born on the same day and in the same municipality than the(More)
The metallurgical performance of the column flotation process is determined by the concentrate grade and recovery. Although the former can be continuously measured using an on-stream analyzer, the latter must be estimated by a material balance calculation based on seldom verified steady-state assumptions. Consequently, the automatic control and optimization(More)
A difficulty with constrained nonlinear control is the minimization of the cost function. With complex system representations such as fundamental models, the required optimization algorithm may be complex to implement, setting its parameters may be difficult and the calculation time may be long. To overcome these problems, an innovative optimization-free(More)
