People usually spend most of the time inside buildings. Therefore, it is necessary to reach a tradeoff between users' comfort and energy saving. The use of appropriate control strategies can highly contribute to this purpose. This paper presents a practical nonlinear model predictive control strategy, that allows to obtain a high thermal comfort level(More)
BACKGROUND Cilastatin reduces nephrotoxicity associated with cyclosporin A (CyA) in solid organ and bone marrow transplantation. This appears to be unrelated to changes in renal haemodynamics or CyA metabolism. How cilastatin induces this protection is unclear, but it could result from changes on accumulation of CyA proximal cells. METHODS We investigated(More)
In general, human beings receive most part of information through eyesight. Therefore, light is an essential element which allows people to distinguish the shape, colour and perspective of the environment around them. Moreover, energy efficiency in buildings is a problem that is being widely analysed since energy consumption inside them represents(More)
P"rpse: To investigate the clinical and histological toxicity of the exposure of the :rabbit cornea1 endothelium to anterior chamber injection of liposome-encapsulated 5-fluorouridine (LS-FUR) at concentrations of 1 mg/ml and 0.38 mg/ml and intravitreal injection of I.5FUR at 1 mg/ml. M*thOdS : A total of 12 New Zealand white rabbits were divided in three(More)
PURPOSE: We studied the effects of exposure to mitomycin C and 5-Fluorcuracil to human RPE cultures, in growth inhibition and citoxicity. METHODS: 1) Growth inhibition: RPE cultures (3.000 cells/well) were exposed to different concentrations of mitomycin C and 5-Fluorouracil, and cell viability (MTT test) was evaluated 48h, 72h and 96h after. 2)(More)
Pm: A new hydrogel composed ofiota-carrageenan/polyvinylpyrrolidon (i-cgn/pvp) was tested in rabbit eyes to dctennine its intraocular tolerance and to evaluate its suitability as a vitreous substitute. MefhodF: Aver pars-plana lensectomy and pars-plana vitrectomy 1,Sml of i-cgn/pvp were injected into 4 eyes of 4 rabbitsThe untreated contralateral eyd served(More)
PURPOSE the autors study the results of the PCR, the C coefficient and the Ig A antibodies of 30 patients without toxoplasmosis. METHODS An anterior chamber puncture is operated on 30 patients undergoing cataract surgery. RESULTS Contrary to all expectations, some of the results tend towards evolutional toxoplasmosis. CONCLUSION The interest of these(More)
