BACKGROUND The objective of this research is to quantify the association between direct medical costs attributable to type 2 diabetes and level of glycemic control. METHODS A longitudinal analysis using a large health plan administrative database was performed. The index date was defined as the first date of diabetes diagnosis and individuals had to have(More)
We describe the implementation of a 2D optical flow algorithm published in the European Conference on Computer Vision (ECCV 2004) by Brox et al. [1] (best paper award) and a qualitative and quantitative evaluation of it for a number of synthetic and real image sequences. Their optical flow method combines three assumptions: a brightness constancy(More)
Marine planktonic diatoms export carbon to the deep ocean, playing a key role in the global carbon cycle. Although commonly thought to have diversified over the Cenozoic as global oceans cooled, only two conflicting quantitative reconstructions exist, both from the Neptune deep-sea microfossil occurrences database. Total diversity shows Cenozoic increase(More)
BACKGROUND Routine metabolic screening and consideration of patient metabolic status in the choice of a second-generation antipsychotic (SGA) medication are recommended. This study evaluated the association between abnormal blood glucose and lipid values and SGA prescribing patterns. MATERIALS AND METHODS A retrospective cohort study using administrative(More)

Enhancing biomass production and yield by maintaining enhanced capacity for CO 2 uptake in response to elevated CO 2. Can. J. Plant Sci. 94: 1075Á1083. Using four model plants, two members of the Gramineae, rye and wheat, and two Brassicaceae, Brassica napus and Arabidopsis thaliana, two fundamental approaches were exploited to determine how regulating(More)
