Applications ranging from algorithmic trading to scientific data analysis require real-time analytics based on views over databases receiving thousands of updates each second. Such views have to be kept fresh at millisecond latencies. At the same time, these views have to support classical SQL, rather than window semantics, to enable applications that(More)
We reviewed the clinical, histological and serological parameters of microscopic polyangiitis (MPA) associated with antineutrophil cytoplasmic antibodies (ANCA) specific to myeloperoxidase (MPO). Six girls and one boy aged 12.0±2.6 years (7–15 years) met the following inclusion criteria: (1) clinical manifestations of systemic small vessel involvement; (2)(More)
Chronic infections may mimic antineutrophil cytoplasmic antibody (ANCA)-associated vasculitides (AAV). We investigated which markers may help in the diagnosis and the prognosis of infections associated with proteinase 3 (PR3) and myeloperoxidase (MPO)-ANCA. In this study (1993–2008)—with an average follow-up of 5.1 years—we compared 66 AAV patients with 17(More)
The recent Zika virus (ZIKV) epidemic is associated with microcephaly in newborns. Although the connection between ZIKV and neurodevelopmental defects is widely recognized, the underlying mechanisms are poorly understood. Here we show that two recently isolated strains of ZIKV, an American strain from an infected fetal brain (FB-GWUH-2016) and a(More)
Clinical and serological profiles of idiopathic and drug-induced autoimmune diseases can be very similar. We compared data from idiopathic and antithyroid drug (ATD)-induced antineutrophil cytoplasmic antibody (ANCA)-positive patients. From 1993 to 2003, 2474 patients were tested for ANCA in the Laboratory for Allergy and Clinical Immunology in Belgrade.(More)
Nonsyndromic cleft lip with or without cleft palate (nsCL/P) is among the most common human birth defects with multifactorial etiology. Here, we present results from a genome-wide imputation study of nsCL/P in which, after adding replication cohort data, four novel risk loci for nsCL/P are identified (at chromosomal regions 2p21, 14q22, 15q24 and 19p13). On(More)
In the quest for valuable information, modern big data applications continuously monitor streams of data. These applications demand low latency stream processing even when faced with high volume and velocity of incoming changes and the user's desire to ask complex queries. In this paper, we study low-latency incremental computation of complex SQL queries in(More)
We assessed the relationship between the serum levels of antibodies against double-stranded DNA (dsDNA), C1q, nucleosomes, histones, C3 and C4 complement components with one another, with organ involvement and overall disease activity in patients with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). One hundred seventy-five sera from 99 patients with SLE, 31 sera of(More)
The most important mitotic apparatus (MA) antigens are centrosome (CE), nuclear mitotic apparatus (NuMA-1, NuMA-2), midbody, and centromere F (CENP-F). We studied associations of anti-MA antibodies with other autoantibodies and their clinical significance. A total of 6270 patients were studied for the presence of anti-MA antibodies on HEp-2 cells.
