We used star density maps obtained from 2MASS to obtain a sample of star clusters in the entire Galactic Plane with |b| < 20. A total of 1788 star cluster candidates are identified in this survey. Among those are 681 previously known open clusters and 86 globular clusters. A statistical analysis indicates that our sample of 1021 new cluster candidates has a(More)
INTRODUCTION Type 1 diabetes can be diagnosed at an early presymptomatic stage by the detection of islet autoantibodies. The Fr1da study aims to assess whether early staging of type 1 diabetes (1) is feasible at a population-based level, (2) prevents severe metabolic decompensation observed at the clinical manifestation of type 1 diabetes and (3) reduces(More)
Dynamic models of M-type Mira variables predict the occurrence of water “shells”, i.e. of zones of high H2O density and high H2O absorption inside the stellar atmosphere. The density, position and width of these shells is closely correlated with different types of two-component shapes of the intensity distribution on the disk in the H , K and L(More)
Introduction This is the last of three articles dealing with statistics and its applications to the data analysis of materials and components, as used in Metallic Materials and Elements for Aerospace Vehicle Structures (MIL HDBK 5) and the Composite Materials Handbook (MIL HDBK 17) [1,2]. The objective of this series is to discuss some ideas and(More)
WiDr (colon adenocarcinoma), SiHa (cervix carcinoma), and SQ20-B cells (head and neck cancer; data not shown here) were cultured in either conventional monolayers or cellular multilayers in a specific culture chamber [1]. Cell cultures were irradiated with 250 kV x-rays or with a Cbeam in the plateau region simulating the situation of normal tissue in the(More)
