OBJECTIVE To assess effectiveness and side effects of thiazolidinediones (TZDs) as adjunctive therapy in suboptimally controlled patients with type 2 diabetes. DESIGN AND SETTING Review of a prospectively recorded database at the Royal Melbourne Hospital diabetes clinic. PARTICIPANTS 203 patients with type 2 diabetes who received pioglitazone or(More)
A recently developed spot form of blotch differential set of 16 barley lines was tested for reaction response to 60 Pyrenophora teres f. maculata isolates from geographically disperse barley crops of Australia. Twelve barley lines (Arimont, Barque, Chebec, CI5286, CI5791, CI9214, CII6150, Dairokkaku, Esperance Orge 289, Galleon, Keel, Skiff, Torrens and(More)

In 2004, Seidel and Smith proved that the Liouville manifold associated to Ramanujams surface contains a Lagrangian torus which is not displaceable by Hamiltonian isotopy, and hence that higher products of this manifold provide non-standard symplectic structures on Euclidean space which are convex at infinity. I extend these techniques a wide class of(More)
We construct using Lefschetz fibrations a large family of contact manifolds with the following properties: Any bounding contact embedding into an exact symplectic mani-fold satisfying a mild topological assumption is non-displaceable and generically has infinitely many leaf-wise intersection points. Moreover, any Stein filling has infinite dimensional(More)
AIMS Insulin secretion increases in normal pregnancy to meet increasing demands. Inability to increase beta-cell function results in gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM). We have previously shown that the expression of the transcription factor ARNT (Aryl-hydrocarbon Receptor Nuclear Translocator) is reduced in the islets of humans with type 2 diabetes. Mice(More)
OBJECTIVE We assessed the efficacy of routine glycated hemoglobin (HbA1c) testing to detect undiagnosed diabetes and prediabetes in an urban Australian public hospital emergency department (ED) located in an area of high diabetes prevalence. METHODS Over 6 weeks, all patients undergoing blood sampling in the ED had their random blood glucose measured. If(More)
Malware classification using machine learning algorithms is a difficult task, in part due to the absence of strong natural features in raw executable binary files. Byte n-grams previously have been used as features, but little work has been done to explain their performance or to understand what concepts are actually being learned. In contrast to other work(More)
OBJECTIVES Weight gain on clozapine is highly variable and poorly predictable. Its mechanisms are not well understood. This study explores the factors that predict weight gain between 3 and 12 months of clozapine therapy in community-dwelling patients. METHODS We conducted a retrospective audit of patients attending an outpatient clozapine clinic. Weight(More)
