Serum thyroid hormone and thyrotropin levels were assayed and the myocardial function was evaluated by measuring systolic time intervals both in 30 patients with epilepsy on long-term carbamazepine monotherapy and in 19 healthy volunteers. Serum thyroxine, free thyroxine and triiodothyronine levels were significantly lower (p < 0.001) in the patient group(More)
Ambient networks (AN) project focuses on the convergence of heterogeneous networks over different domains. The aim (among others) is to facilitate co-operation, mobility support and multi-access between networks and terminals. One of the most important goals is to integrate the different AN-concepts together for validation. This paper presents an integrated(More)
The aquaporin 4 (AQP4) water channel is present on the sarcolemma of fast-twitch-type skeletal myofibres. We have examined the distribution of AQP4 in relation to sarcolemmal domain structure and found that AQP4 protein is not evenly distributed on the sarcolemma. Immunofluorescence staining of isolated single myofibres indicated a punctate staining pattern(More)
In the last years multimedia processing applications have gained more and more importance in the field of mobile and hand-held devices, requiring dedicated hardware platforms characterized by high performance computation capabilities with reduced area occupation and low power consumption. 2D graphics and signal processing applications in general benefit(More)
Context. The literature concerning the health-related quality of life (HRQoL) of patients with surgically treated PA is controversial. Objective. To describe the long-term HRQoL of surgically treated patients in all PA classes. Design and subjects. The 15D, a generic HRQoL instrument producing a 15-dimensional profile and a single 15D index score (a(More)
Path metric computation in Viterbi decoders is a crucial task where previously computed path metrics are used as input values. If an area-efficient decoder is preferred, mapping the Viterbi algorithm onto reduced computational resources becomes attractive. This implies a need for path metric storage and an interconnection network between parallel(More)
We examined how the concentrations of exogenous compounds (and their metabolites) in rat brain tissue correlate with their concentrations in the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) (i) when the blood-brain barrier (B-BB) is intact and increasing doses of compounds are administered, and (ii) when the function of the B-BB is impaired and small constant doses are given.(More)
