BACKGROUND Despite the disease burden imposed by respiratory diseases on children in Central America, there is a paucity of data describing the etiologic agents of the disease. AIMS To analyze viral etiologic agents associated with influenza-like illness (ILI) in participants reporting to one outpatient health center, one pediatric hospital, and three(More)
During the stage of system requirements gathering, model elicitation is aimed at identifying in textual scenarios model elements that are relevant for building a first version of models that will be further exploited in a model-driven engineering method. When multiple elements should be identified from multiple interrelated conceptual models, the complexity(More)
This paper addresses the need for supporting the design of user interfaces for workflow management systems. Based on the already existing task and domain models, an approach is proposed to design a workflow model that explicitly articulates its new concepts with respect to the concepts belonging to the task and the domain, but with some extensions. The(More)
— A user interface description language (UIDL) consists of a specification language that describes various aspects of a user interface under development. A comparative review of some selected user interface description languages is produced in order to analyze how they support the various stages of user interface development life cycle and development(More)
Multiple myeloma (MM) remains incurable partly because no effective cell cycle-based therapy has been available to both control tumor cell proliferation and synergize with cytotoxic killing. PD 0332991 is an orally active small molecule that potently and specifically inhibits Cdk4 and Cdk6. It has been shown to induce rapid G(1) cell cycle arrest in primary(More)
Many methods in the area of Human-Computer Interaction have been developed for deriving user interfaces considering individual users. However, nowadays information systems include more than single interaction, there is a need to explicitly include multi user interaction during the design process of information systems. One of this approaches are workflow(More)
BACKGROUND Tropical countries are thought to play an important role in the global behavior of respiratory infections such as influenza. The tropical country of Ecuador has almost no documentation of the causes of acute respiratory infections. The objectives of this study were to identify the viral agents associated with influenza like illness (ILI) in(More)
This paper addresses the need for designing user interfaces (UIs) to workflow information systems by adopting a model-centric approach. We introduce a conceptual workflow model to determine system func-tionalities of workflow. The model is exploited in order to systematically derive UIs to access these functional-ities. The workflow model is recursively(More)
BACKGROUND Recent influenza antiviral resistance studies reveal an alarming increase in both adamantanes and neuraminidase inhibitors (NAIs) resistant viral strains worldwide, particularly in Asia, Europe and the United States. OBJECTIVES In this study, we have evaluated influenza virus resistance in Central and South America. METHODS Influenza viruses,(More)
Human rhinoviruses (HRVs) belong to the Picornaviridae family with high similarity to human enteroviruses (HEVs). Limited data is available from Latin America regarding the clinical presentation and strains of these viruses in respiratory disease. We collected nasopharyngeal swabs at clinics located in eight Latin American countries from 3,375 subjects aged(More)
