Diagnostic tests are needed to aid in the diagnosis of necrotizing myopathies associated with statin use. This study aimed to compare different technologies for the detection of anti-HMGCR antibodies and analyze the clinical phenotype and autoantibody profile of the patients. Twenty samples from myositis patients positive for anti-HMGCR antibodies using a(More)
Analysis of complex time-series data from ecological system study requires quantitative tools for objective description and classification. These tools must take into account largely ignored problems of bias in manual classification, autocorrelation, and noise. Here we describe a method using existing estimation techniques for multivariate-normal hidden(More)
2 Background The Pacific Tuna Tagging Programme (PTTP) is a joint research project being implemented by the Oceanic Fisheries Programme (OFP) of the Secretariat of the Pacific Community (SPC), the PNG National Fisheries Authority (NFA) and the members and participating non‐members of the Western and Central Pacific Fisheries Commission (WCPFC). The goal of(More)
We suggest various highly simpliied models which may be employed to make estimates of the performance of a concurrent program running on a multiprocessor machine. We try to nd a small set of parameters which have an important innuence on performance, and conduct simulation experiments on synthetic programs whose parameter values are varied systematically.(More)
In an effort to find naturally occurring substances that reduce cholesterol by inhibiting 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl-coenzyme A reductase (HMGCR), statins were first discovered by Endo in 1972. With the widespread prescription and use of statins to decrease morbidity from myocardial infarction and stroke, it was noted that approximately 5% of all statin(More)
