We have measured the size distributions of air ions (0.42–7.5 nm in diameter) with the Balanced Scanning Mobility Analyzer in boreal forest, in Southern Finland since spring 2003. The size range covers the size range of cluster ions (approximately 0.42–1.6 nm) and naturally charged nanometre aerosol particles (1.6–7.5 nm) or intermediate air ions. Based on(More)
Cyproterone acetate (100 mg daily on the 5th-14th days of the normal cycle) together with ethinyl estradiol (0.05 mg daily on the 5th-25th days) was used for the treatment of hirsutism in 23 women for six months. This treatment caused a significant decrease in the severity of the hirsutism after only three months, the effect being maximal after six months.(More)
This paper gives the concept, design, and implementation of an activity monitoring system that incorporates a database and a data analysis language as an integral part of the structure. The versatility of the design allows many different analysis techniques to be run on the extracted data. This forms the framework to allow different machine learning(More)
A combination of 5-fluorocytosine (1000 mg) and candicidin (5 mg) was compared with clotrimazole (100 mg) in the treatment of 112 non-pregnant volunteers with vulvovaginal candidiasis. Seventy-two (75%) of the 96 patients treated with 1 or 2 vaginal tablets of the combination product and 10 (62%) of the 16 women treated with clotrimazole for 6 days were(More)
This study investigated coping and quality of life in men with prostate cancer (n= 105, 48-86 years of age) and their partners (n= 85, 48-84 years). Participants completed the Abbreviated Dyadic Adjustment Scale, Brief COPE, European Organisation for Research and Treatment of Cancer Core Quality of Life Questionnaire (QLQ-C30) and open-ended questions on(More)
In this study, we measured the mobility distributions of cluster and intermediate ions with an ion spectrometer near a waterfall. We observed that the concentration of negative 1.5–10 nm ions was one-hundred fold higher than a reference point 100 m away from the waterfall. Also, the concentration of positive intermediate ions was found to be higher than(More)
Sera from 176 patients with hypertensive disorders of pregnancy, intrahepatic cholestasis of pregnancy, and oedema of pregnancy, and from 51 normal pregnant control subjects were tested for smooth muscle antibodies (SMA) by indirect immunofluorescence. An increased incidence of SMA positivity was found in cases of pre-eclampsia and in superimposed(More)
