Treatment with some antipsychotic drugs may result in excessive body weight gain which can have detrimental effects on patient compliance, morbidity and mortality. The aim of the present study was to investigate the effect of atypical antipsychotic drugs on dietary macronutrient selection, body weight, body composition and biochemical parameters related to(More)
Atypical antipsychotic drug therapy may result in substantial weight gain, increased adiposity and the promotion of metabolic abnormalities. The mechanism(s) which underlie such effects remain unclear. Previous studies in our laboratory have demonstrated significant weight gain in female rats maintained on a standard laboratory diet after sub-chronic(More)
Thesis submitted in partial fulllment of the requirements for the degree of Master of Science in Technology. The networking landscape in which modern protocols must operate is no longer just the static, homogeneous Internet. As the demand for ubiquitous connectivity grows, the Internet stretches out to increasingly diverse environments, such as mobile(More)
Malawi hat eine der geringsten Arztdichten weltweit und ist eines der ärmsten Länder der Erde. Ein ausgebildeter Arzt ist für mehr als 50.000 Patienten zuständig. Fachärzte gibt es kaum. Besonders in den Distriktkrankenhäusern trägt nichtärztliches Personal, wie die „anaesthetic clinical officers“, häufig allein die Verantwortung für die Behandlung schwer(More)

Network conditions in a mobile environment are often difficult from the point of view of traditional network protocols, such as TCP. Intermittent connectivity, long delays and nonexistent end-to-end paths hinder protocol performance or may prevent it altogether. A delay-tolerant network (DTN) is an overlay network that tackles these problems and allows(More)
