PURPOSE In our series of endoscopic third ventriculostomy (ETV), we sought to establish the relationship between the preoperative prediction using the Endoscopic Third Ventriculostomy Success Score (ETVSS) and the postsurgical success rate. MATERIALS AND METHODS This descriptive analytical study comprised 50 pediatric patients who underwent 58 ETV(More)
INTRODUCTION The treatment of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) patients with anti-tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNFα) biological drugs has dramatically improved the prognosis of these patients. However, a third of the treated patients do not respond to this therapy. Thus, the search for biomarkers of clinical response to these agents is currently highly active. Our(More)
This paper presents an automatic modulation classifier for electronic warfare applications. It is a pattern recognition modulation classifier based on statistical features of the phase and instantaneous frequency. This classifier runs in a real time operation mode with sampling rates in excess of 1 Gsample/s. The hardware platform for this application is a(More)
We analyze the contracting structure in a moral hazard setting with several agents where output is produced jointly and is the only contractible variable. Since the salary of each agent is a function of all agents efforts, a positive externality arises between them. This externality is not internalised by a centralised structure where the principal(More)
The aim of this work was to analyze the number and distribution of circulating monocytes, and of their CD14+highCD16−, CD14+highCD16+ and CD14+lowCD16+ subset cells, in treatment-naive patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA), and to determine their value in predicting the clinical response to methotrexate (MTX) treatment. This prospective work investigated(More)
