Bare bones particle swarm optimization (BBPSO) is a swarm algorithm that has shown potential for solving single-objective unconstrained optimization problems over continuous search spaces. However, it suffers of the premature convergence problem that means it may get trapped into a local optimum when solving multimodal problems. In order to address this(More)
PURPOSE To compare the efficacy and tolerability of a fixed-dose combination of 0.5% moxifloxacin and 0.1% dexamethasone formulation (MFLX/DEX) vs conventional dosing with both agents dosed separately for prophylaxis after laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis (LASIK). METHODS A prospective, randomized, double-masked, parallel-group study of 64 patients(More)
PURPOSE To compare the efficacy and tolerability of a fixed-dose combination of 0.3% gatifloxacin and 1% prednisolone formulation versus the same agents administered separately for prophylaxis in a laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) population. METHODS In a prospective, randomized, double-masked, parallel-group study, 97 patients were evaluated(More)
Elasmus steffani (Viggiani) (Hymenoptera: Elasmidae) is a gregarious idiobiont ectoparasitoid of Prays oleae (Bernard) (Lepidoptera: Plutellidae), an olive crop pest. In the substitute host Ephestia kuehniella (Zeller) (Lepidoptera: Pyralidae), the duration of the developmental stages was approximately 11-15 days. The preoviposition was 8.9 ± 5.0 days, and(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the quality of life, vision and stress before and after refractive surgery. METHODS This is a longitudinal, observational study, where 100 patients were evaluated; 54 espectacles wearers, 21 contact lens users before surgery and 25 controls wearers spectacles or contact lenses, who did not want to undergo refractive surgery during one(More)
