Asthma frequently occurs in association with allergic rhinitis and a combined management approach has been suggested. The Control of Allergic Rhinitis and Asthma Test (CARAT) is the first questionnaire to assess control of both diseases concurrently.

INTRODUCTION AND AIMS Anticoagulation control as assessed by time in therapeutic range (TTR) correlates positively with the safety and efficacy of thromboprophylaxis in atrial fibrillation. We set out to assess TTR in our unit and to investigate determinants of better control. METHODS This was a case series study of atrial fibrillation patients(More)
This paper describes the software tool "Planif 2000" that implements a set of different algorithms to help a Synchronous Digital Hierarchy (SDH) network planer in choosing the final solution or a small set of solutions for Synchronous Digital Hierarchy networks. A description of those algorithms is presented, and at the end, a relevant case study is(More)
The canopy of the pineapple crop changes considerably during the growing season, from a leafless stage to a fully closed canopy at the end of the productive cycle. In order to evaluate the effects of the energy balance components on the developmental stage of the pineapple crop, a field experiment was carried out from March, 2001 to July, 2002 with(More)

Scientific literature concerning this issue is lacking. This article is one of the first to study therapeutic futility specifically at the time(More)
A reduced chemical kinetic reaction mechanism that could be used in computational fluid dynamics (CFD) software was developed to describe the formation of nitrogen oxides and their subsequent destruction in hydrogen and/or hydrocarbon flames with or without seeding of nitrogen compounds. The research work presented here will describe the numerical work done(More)
