OBJECTIVES Adiponectin was initially described as a regulator of metabolic homeostases. Further studies demonstrated its involvement in the regulation of inflammatory diseases, particularly rheumatic and vascular diseases and some fibrotic processes. The aim of this study was to evaluate adiponectin in the circulation of patients with systemic sclerosis(More)
The purpose of this study was to assess the convergent and discriminative validity of the Montreal Cognitive Assessment (MoCA) as a screening tool for cognitive dysfunction in Huntington's disease (HD). Twenty HD patients with cognitive deficit and 23 normal controls (NC) without cognitive deficit were matched for age, sex, and education. The mean MoCA(More)
This article deals with interfacing of Xilinx MicroBlaze (UB) softcore microprocessor to full duplex, 1 Gb/s media converter from metallic to optical interface, which is employed in experimental FSO link as a transceiver. The MicroBlaze harvests statistical data from the link and allows administration of the link via interactive web user interface. The(More)
The article describes an innovative bit error rate reduction technique principle and its practical implementation. The design of the technique is implemented in an FPGA and is combined with other more conventional BER reduction techniques, such as Reed-Solomon coding. Experimental results are provided. The application bit rate in function of BER for both(More)
