BACKGROUND Net survival, the survival that might occur if cancer was the only cause of death, is a major epidemiological indicator. Recent findings have shown that the classical methods used for the estimation of net survival from cancer registry data, referred as to "relative-survival methods," provided biased estimates. OBJECTIVES The aim of this study(More)
Daily urinary collection and assessment of glomerular filtration rate (GFR) and effective renal plasma flow were performed in ten 2-month-old Beagle puppies and ten 6-9 year-old Beagle dogs to identify age-associated differences in renal function. The most striking differences in puppies compared to mature dogs were a higher daily urinary volume (+65%), GFR(More)
Nitrites and nitrates are often responsible for methemoglobinemy. Infants, on account of their greater sensibility to oxidizing agents, are particularly liable to poison by nitrates and nitrites. Sodium nitrite can be responsible for poisoning after accidental ingestion or owing to an overdose when preparing salt provisions, or because it has been mistaken(More)
This paper describes and evaluates a new algorithm for the purpose of Indoor propagation prediction for centimetric waves. Usual approaches previously developed for Indoor propagation are based either on empiric or ray-tracing technics. The former suffers a lake of accuracy while the later offers the possibility of a trade-off between accuracy and(More)
