AIMS Chemotherapy-induced heart failure is increasingly recognized as a major clinical challenge. Cardiotoxicity of imatinib mesylate, a highly selective and effective anticancer drug belonging to the new class of tyrosine kinase inhibitors, is being reported in patients, some progressing to congestive heart failure. This represents an unanticipated(More)
This paper1addresses the hardware implementation of a dynamic scheduler for non-manifest data dependent periodic loops. Static scheduling techniques which are known to give near optimal scheduling-solutions for manifest loops, fail at scheduling non-manifest loops, since they lack the run time information needed which makes a static schedule feasible. In(More)
In this paper we address the problem of scheduling algorithms embodied with a mixture of nonmanifest-loops [1], variable-latency and fixed-latency units [2], [3] for high throughput DSP-applications. Nonmanifest loops are loops where the number of iterations needed for a calculation is data dependent and hence not known at compile time. The body of a(More)
The effects of various gas environment used in high pressure SEM inside the specimen chamber were investigated using Monte Carlo simulation. In order to improve the signal to noise ratio for the electron detection, we suggest to use helium gas-based mixture. The Helium gas is well known to reduce the skirt effect due to its low elastic scattering(More)
Despite high tuberculosis (TB) treatment success rate, treatment adherence is one of the major obstacles to tuberculosis control in Kenya. Our objective was to identify patient-related factors that were associated with time to TB treatment interruption and the geographic distribution of the risk of treatment interruption by county. Data of new and(More)
In terms of electricity generation, Distributed Generation (DG) using Photovoltaics (PV) panels has become more common. To deal with the potential challenges it brought on the existing electricity distribution network, Demand Side Management (DSM) methodologies are developed. Triana, developed by Computer Architecture and Embedded Systems group (CAES) of(More)
BACKGROUND Asthma, a chronic respiratory disease affecting over 18.7 million American adults, has marked disparities by gender, race/ethnicity and socioeconomic status. Our goal was to identify gender-specific demographic and socioeconomic determinants of asthma prevalence among U.S. adults using data from the Behavioral Risk Factors Surveillance System(More)
