The effects of organic and inorganic nutrient enrichments on algal–bacterial competition were investigated using mesocosms. Interactions were followed over 10 d in 12, 3-m 3 seawater mesocosms in the Isefjord, Denmark. Two sets of four mesocosms were given the same daily addition of ''phytoplankton nutrients'' (phosphate and nitrate) but received different(More)
OBJECTIVES (1) To assess the prevalence of risk factors for osteoporosis and cardiovascular disease and the prevalence and severity of the appearance of menopausal symptoms among Spanish menopausal women. (2) To identify the main factors responsible for this severity. (3) To detect symptom differences between perimenopausal and postmenopausal women. (More)
OBJECTIVES To study the impact of treatments prescribed in usual practice to control Overactive Bladder (OAB) on health-related quality of life (HRQoL) of patients with associated pathologies. METHODS 1.434 patients over 60 years with newly diagnosed OAB and at least one associated pathology (urinary or genital-skin infections, sleep disorders,(More)
INTRODUCTION Few studies have examined the 24-hour symptom profile in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). The main objective of this study was to determine daily variations in the symptoms of patients with stable COPD in Spain, compared with other European countries. METHODS Observational study conducted in 8 European countries.(More)
BACKGROUND The present study was designed to describe the clinical profile of acute exacerbations of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and the treatment prescribed by primary care physicians (PCPs) in Spain. METHOD An observational, multicenter and cross-sectional study was performed in patients diagnosed with acute exacerbation of COPD and(More)
OBJECTIVES (1) To assess the prevalence of osteoporosis risk factors in Spanish menopausal women; (2) to detect medical and lifestyle risk factor differences between perimenopausal and postmenopausal women; (3) and to identify the main factors responsible for osteoporosis. METHODS Cross-sectional descriptive study encompassing women aged 45-65 across(More)
INTRODUCTION Most women spend one-third to half of their lifespan in the postmenopausal phase. As menopause involves biological and psychosocial changes that may significantly impair quality of life, the objectives of this study were to: (1) evaluate the prevalence of risk factors for osteoporosis and cardiovascular disease and the prevalence and severity(More)
In this paper we propose the utilisation of an evolutionary approach for the task of classifying microarray data by using prior knowledge in the form of existing gene sets. The purpose of the work is to obtain an accurate classification model that uses a biologically relevant, and previously defined, gene set. The proposed algorithm will be integrated(More)
