BACKGROUND COPD patients are at increased risk for venous thromboembolism (VTE). VTE however remains under-diagnosed in this population and the clinical profile of VTE in COPD is unclear. METHODS Global initiative for chronic Obstructive Lung Disease (GOLD) stages II-IV participants in the COPD Genetic Epidemiology (COPDGene) study were divided into 2(More)
Nature inspired meta-heuristic algorithms are iterative search processes which find near optimal solutions by efficiently performing exploration and exploitation of the solution space. Considering the solution space in a specified region, this work compares performances of Bat, Cuckoo search and Firefly algorithms for unconstrained optimization problems.(More)
We tested the hypothesis that the negative functional effects of cyclic GMP were mediated by ryanodine receptors, and that these effects would be reduced in thyroxine (thyroxine, 0.5 mg/kg/day, 16 days)-induced hypertrophic myocytes. Using rabbit ventricular myocytes from control (n=9) and thyroxine (n=9) hearts, percent cell shortening (%) and maximum rate(More)
