BACKGROUND In-stent restenosis rates have been closely linked to the wall shear stress distribution within a stented arterial segment, which in turn is a function of stent design. Unfortunately, evaluation of hemodynamic performance can only be evaluated with long term clinical trials. In this work we introduce a set of metrics, based on statistical(More)
The use of natural plant biostimulants is proposed as an innovative solution to address the challenges to sustainable agriculture, to ensure optimal nutrient uptake, crop yield, quality, and tolerance to abiotic stress. However, the process of selection and characterization of plant biostimulant matrices is complex and involves a series of rigorous(More)
Cigarette smoke is known to be a risk for the development of intrauterine growth restriction (IUGR). Our objective was to assess the effects of secondhand smoke (SHS) during pregnancy and to what extent it regulates the activation of mTOR family members and murine trophoblast invasion. Mice were treated to SHS for 4 days. Placental and fetal weights were(More)
Palabras clave: algoritmo genético, celda termoeléctrica, micro algoritmo genético. Abstract. The thermoelectric cells are semiconductor devices used in mobile refrigeration, their behavior, it is to say, the way they respond to certain electrical stimulus, can be manipulated through control engineering techniques, the most popular, the(More)
Anthracnose, caused by Colletotrichum species is a highly limiting disease for the production of the tropical fruit tree crop, soursop (Annona muricata L.). In this study, 83 single-spore isolates of Colletotrichum were obtained from diseased soursoup tissues and subjected to a species complex-specific PCR assay. The isolates were identified as C.(More)
An island wide survey carried over 18 months across 79 tomato (Lycopersicum esculentum L.) plantations in 30 localities on 12 varieties revealed that symptoms related to phytoplasma-associated diseases are widespread in this species in Mauritius. Typical witches, broom and stunting and/or yellowing were observed in 74.6 % of fields visited. Phytoplasmas(More)
