IMPORTANCE Time to thrombolysis is crucial for outcome in acute ischemic stroke. OBJECTIVE To determine if starting thrombolysis in a specialized ambulance reduces delays. DESIGN, SETTING, AND PARTICIPANTS In the Prehospital Acute Neurological Treatment and Optimization of Medical care in Stroke Study (PHANTOM-S), conducted in Berlin, Germany, we(More)
IMPORTANCE The effectiveness of intravenous thrombolysis in acute ischemic stroke is time dependent. The effects are likely to be highest if the time from symptom onset to treatment is within 60 minutes, termed the golden hour. OBJECTIVE To determine the achievable rate of golden hour thrombolysis in prehospital care and its effect on outcome. DESIGN,(More)
BACKGROUND The preferred immunosuppressive drug for long term treatment of myasthenia gravis (MG) is azathioprine (AZA). Mycophenolate mofetil (MMF) was suggested as an effective and safe second line alternative to AZA. METHODS In a prospective open-label study, 11 patients with acetylcholine receptor antibody (AChR-ab) positive MG (n=4 ocular MG, n=7(More)
In congenital myasthenic syndrome with DOK7 mutations ephedrine was reported to be beneficial in single patients. We carried out a small, open and prospective cohort study in eight European patients manifesting from birth to 12 years. Five patients showed limb-girdle and facial weakness, three a floppy infant syndrome with bulbar symptoms and/or respiratory(More)
We relate two formerly independent areas: Formal concept analysis and logic of domains. We will establish a correspondene between contextual attribute logic on formal contexts resp. concept lattices and a clausal logic on coherent algebraic cpos. We show how to identify the notion of formal concept in the domain theoretic setting. In particular, we show(More)
OBJECTIVE Beneficial effects of IV tissue plasminogen activator (tPA) in acute ischemic stroke are strongly time-dependent. In the Pre-Hospital Acute Neurological Treatment and Optimization of Medical care in Stroke (PHANTOM-S) study, we undertook stroke treatment using a specialized ambulance, the stroke emergency mobile unit (STEMO), to shorten(More)
With the evolution of linked open data sources, question answering regains importance as a way to make data accessible and ex-plorable to the public. The triple structure of RDF-data at the same time seems to predetermine question answering for being devised in its native subject-verb-object form. The devices of natural language, however , often exceed this(More)
