MATERIALS AND METHODS The study was institutional review board approved and HIPAA compliant. One thousand one hundred thirty-nine children suspected of having(More)
Service Discovery Protocols have been developed for applications to take advantages of services shared over networks. Each protocol provides a way for applications to ask for the type of services they need. In return, applications receive information about services that could fulfill their needs. However, such protocols do not supply enough support for(More)
Although the recent Zika virus (ZIKV) epidemic in the Americas and its link to birth defects have attracted a great deal of attention, much remains unknown about ZIKV disease epidemiology and ZIKV evolution, in part owing to a lack of genomic data. Here we address this gap in knowledge by using multiple sequencing approaches to generate 110 ZIKV genomes(More)
BACKGROUND Effective implementation strategies are needed to optimize advancements in the fields of cancer diagnosis, treatment, survivorship, and end-of-life care. We conducted a review of systematic reviews to better understand the evidentiary base of implementation strategies in cancer control. METHODS Using three databases, we conducted a search and(More)
Amoebiasis caused by Entamoeba histolytica continues to be one of the most common parasitic diseases in the developing world. Despite its relevance, due to the lack of accurate diagnostic methods, the true clinical and public health importance of this parasite remains uncertain. The aim of this study was to develop a new diagnostic tool to differentiate(More)
INTRODUCTION Practice pattern data demonstrate regional variation and lower than expected rates of adherence to practice guideline (PG) recommendations for the treatment of stage II/IIIA resected and stage IIIA/IIIB unresected non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) patients in Ontario, Canada.

An intelligent area integrates both Internet and Intranet software/hardware supports (from small embedded sensors to powerful and dynamic computing devices) to provide information about each artifact state (e.g., a power failure of the refrigerator) without user intervention. This technological sophistication can be achieved by means of service discovery(More)
