Reduction of osteonecrosis of the jaw (ONJ) after implementation of preventive measures in patients with multiple myeloma treated with zoledronic acid.
The risk of developing Osteonecrosis of the jaw after treatment of zoledronic acid is reduced (but not deleted) by the implementation of preventive measures. Expand
Learning by doing and learning through play: an exploration of interactivity in virtual environments for children
This article explores central thread in learning, play, as well as an essentialcharacteristic of virtual reality environments: interactivity, andritical review of examples of immersive virtual reality worldreated for children, with particular attention given to the role and nature of interactivity.

Virtual Reality (VR) is n still n a novel and innovative technology w hich, through its current applications, has proved to be a useful visualization tool for a variety of domains, especially thoseExpand
Design and Evaluation of a Real-World Virtual Environment for Architecture and Urban Planning
This evaluation suggests that involving users and designers from the beginning improves the effectiveness of the VE in the context of the real world urban planning project, and demonstrates that appropriate levels of realism are significant for the design process and for communicating about designs.

Reversibility of renal failure in newly diagnosed multiple myeloma patients treated with high dose dexamethasone-containing regimens and the impact of novel agents.
RF is reversible in the majority of newly diagnosed MM patients treated with high-dose dexamethasone containing regimens and the addition of novel agents induces a more rapid RF reversal. Expand
Reversibility of renal impairment in patients with multiple myeloma treated with bortezomib-based regimens: identification of predictive factors.
Bortezomib-based regimens may improve renal function in the majority of myeloma patients with renal impairment, and the degree of renal impairment was not predictive of the probability for renal response or CRrenal. Expand
Diffuse pattern of bone marrow involvement on magnetic resonance imaging is associated with high risk cytogenetics and poor outcome in newly diagnosed, symptomatic patients with multiple myeloma: A
Diffuse MRI pattern in combination with high risk cytogenetics and ISS‐3 can identify a subset of myeloma patients with very poor prognosis who may need innovative treatment strategies and possibly more aggressive therapies. Expand
Photorealism and Non-Photorealism in Virtual Heritage Representation
It is argued that it is important to enhance the perception of realism, achieved both through photorealistic and non-photorealistic visualisation approaches, with interactivity, as illustrated by two example projects which develop prototype virtual environments created for specialists as well as novice users.

Personalizing Interactive Digital Storytelling in Archaeological Museums: the CHESS Project
Archaeological museums can be boring to many people because they do not connect to the personal narratives they carry with them and constantly re-build. Indeed, memory institutions need to sustainExpand
Exploring rules and underlying concepts while engaged with collaborative full-body games
Results indicate that children perceive the rules of the games and the underlying concepts in different ways and the longer they play the more their verbal interactions change from actions-centre to concept-centred. Expand
