Accumulating mainly experimental evidence from research of the last 3 decades shows that many types of arterial wall injury can accelerate and intensify the development of atherosclerosis in arteries exposed to chronic hyperlipemia by increasing the permeability of their endothelium for plasma lipoproteins, proteins and several types of smooth muscle(More)
The synoptic, dynamic, energetic and thermodynamic conditions during the development of a baroclinic depression which affected the area of Cyprus from 5 to 9 February 2006 are studied. The depression was associated with extreme weather phenomena such as thunderstorms, strong winds, dust and high precipitation accumulations (amounting to 50% of the mean(More)
In this paper we provide an overview of the way that information and communication technologies have been used for emergency healthcare support. The paper provides a literature review of case studies exploring information systems for monitoring signals, images, medical videos, as well as information protocols used during emergency health care support, and(More)
In order to gain understanding of some of the problems of genetic counseling for a severe recessive disease in England, a Greek Cypriot extended family including 87 living members and known to be transmitting a beta-thalassaemia gene was investigated for the extent and the sources of their knowledge about thalassaemia. 42% of members tested carried(More)
The development of suitable Computer Aided Design (CAD) environments for the early phase of architectural design is important. A declarative process could capture the nature of the early phase of architectural design. In this work we develop a software application in order to support the declarative process of developing coherent building models based on(More)
Three main atherogenic processes are recognised today: hyperlipemia, arterial wall injury and parietal thrombosis. The role of hyperlipemia is supported, among other things, by the following: 1. Experimentally, protracted hyperlipemia can reproduce faithfully the lesions and all complications of advanced human atherosclerosis. 2. Immunohistochemically,(More)
