The need for proper consideration of energy-related performance aspects during building design has been identified since the energy crises of the 1970s. However, energy performance is still considered in a very small fraction of building projects, mainly because proper consideration is very expensive. It requires the use of computational software tools,(More)
results does not imply CIEE endorsement of or agreement with these findings, nor that of any CIEE sponsor. ABSTRACT Many building simulation computer programs, originally developed on mainframe computers for research purposes, can now run on the powerful workstation and personal computers that are available to most architectural and engineering firms.

Crohn's disease (CD) is a chronic idiopathic inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) which affects any site of the gastrointestinal tract and occasionally extraintestinal organs. The natural history of CD varies remarkably but a considerable proportion of patients develop complications leading to hospitalizations and surgeries, impaired quality of life, and(More)

The researchers developed and demonstrated a novel approach termed " dual-loop " for daylight harvesting controls in big-box stores with skylights. A dual-loop photosensor control system combines a closed-loop sensor with an open-loop sensor and an intelligent algorithm which work together to adjust the electric light. The result is a new daylight(More)
OBJECTIVES Therapeutic drug monitoring of infliximab improves treatment outcomes, but available assays to monitor infliximab lack speed to implement treatment algorithms immediately. Our aim is to validate a rapid, lateral flow-based assay (LFA) for quantitative determination of infliximab and to assess thresholds associated with mucosal healing in patients(More)
BACKGROUND Currently, there is no standardized protocol for bowel preparation before small bowel capsule endoscopy (SBCE). This study aimed to investigate the effect of simethicone combined with polyethylene glycol (PEG) on the visualization quality (VQ) of the SBCE in patients with or without known or suspected Crohn's disease (CD). METHODS This(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIM Infliximab (IFX) has revolutionized the treatment of patients with Crohn's disease (CD). However, a significant proportion of patients may fail to respond primarily or lose response over time. The genetic background of a particular individual may partially explain differences in responsiveness to anti-TNFα therapy. The aim of this study(More)
