The diets of all diurnal primates (Gorilla g. gorilla, Pan t. troglodytes, Mandrillus sphinx, Colobus satanas, Cercocebus albigena, Cercopithecus nictitans, C. pogonias, C. cephus) in the Lópe Reserve, central Gabon, are described from qualitative and quantitative data collected over 10 years. A total of 397 foods were recorded, of which 91% were from(More)
BACKGROUND If carotid artery narrowing remains asymptomatic (ie, has caused no recent stroke or other neurological symptoms), successful carotid endarterectomy (CEA) reduces stroke incidence for some years. We assessed the long-term effects of successful CEA. METHODS Between 1993 and 2003, 3120 asymptomatic patients from 126 centres in 30 countries were(More)
This paper studies performance-sensitive debt (PSD), the class of debt obligations whose interest payments depend on some measure of the borrowers performance. We demonstrate that the existence of PSD obligations cannot be explained by the trade-off theory of capital structure, as PSD leads to earlier default and lower equity value compared to fixed-rate(More)
The feeding behavior of one group of green monkeys (Cercopithecus sabaeus)was observed between October 1978 and December 1979 in the Parc National du Niokolo-Koba, Senegal. Details of the vegetational composition of the habitat and seasonal variation in food availability were also recorded. The green monkeys’ diet was omnivorous and diverse, including over(More)

Cerebral blood flow is inversely related to in vitro whole blood viscosity, the major determinant of which is haematocrit. Haemodilution increases cerebral blood flow in polycythaemic patients and in subjects with high normal haematocrit. There is now increasing evidence that this relationship reflects a homeostatic and physiological regulation of(More)
Oral mucositis occurs in up to 75% of recipients of high-dose chemoradiotherapy conditioning regimens used for allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT). As a result of mucositis, narcotic analgesia and total parenteral nutrition (TPN) are commonly required after HSCT. Methotrexate, an antiproliferative graft-versus-host disease (GVHD)(More)
The central nervous system complications arising during or shortly after coronary artery bypass grafting are due to cerebral ischemia associated with hypotension and to embolism. Hemodynamic compromise produces a spectrum of disturbance of consciousness and mentation ranging from brain death and coma through the chronic vegetative state to mild confusion.(More)
BACKGROUND There are no published data on real-life clinical experience comparing inhaled antibiotic therapy via new rapid delivery systems with nebulised antibiotic therapy in CF. This real world study compares safety, effectiveness and tolerability using tobramycin inhaled powder (TIP) versus tobramycin inhaled solution (TIS). METHODS Adult patients(More)
This report gives a survey of user interface languages and formal representations of user interfaces. The following aspects of User Interface Languages are considered: expressiveness readability evaluation (is it possible to evaluate the ergonomic and functional quality of the user interface from the representation) manipulation compilation/interpretation(More)
