Background: Recent technological advances in integrated circuits, wireless communications, and physiological sensing allow miniature, lightweight, ultra-low power, intelligent monitoring devices. A number of these devices can be integrated into a Wireless Body Area Network (WBAN), a new enabling technology for health monitoring.
We retrospectively studied patients who had undergone orthotopic liver transplantation and who also had electroencephalography to determine whether epileptiform changes were associated with a poor neurological outcome. Study groups were 36 patients who died after transplantation (141 electroencephalograms) and underwent neuropathological examination, 11 who(More)
Despite the occurrence of serious side effects, the use of cyclosporin A after organ transplantation has increased because of its ability to effectively suppress allograft rejection. Its use in the treatment of ophthalmic disease has also recently increased. Central nervous system toxicity due to cyclosporin A is a significant but apparently clinically(More)
Colonoscopy is an endoscopic technique that allows a physician to inspect the inside of the human colon. Although millions of colonoscopic procedures are performed annually, an objective method that estimates how much effort was undertaken to insure maximal inspection of the visible parts of the inside of the colon, does not exist. Experts agree that it is(More)
We here report isolation of exon 1 and analysis of the human B-50 promoter. A human genomic lambda EMBL3 library was screened with a homologous PCR probe. Two independent clones were analyzed and partially sequenced: They contained up to 5 kb sequence upstream of the translation start site and approx 13 kb of intron 1 sequence. There was a high degree of(More)
Colonoscopy is an endoscopic technique that allows a physician to inspect the inside of the human colon. In current practice, videos captured from colonoscopic procedures are not routinely stored for either manual or automated post-procedure analysis. In this paper, we introduce new algorithms for automated detection of the presence of the shape of the(More)
INTRODUCTION Colonoscopy screening reduces colorectal cancer (CRC) incidence and mortality. CRC screening is recommended at age 50 for average-risk people. Screening of first-degree relatives of CRC patients is recommended to begin at age 40 or 10 years before the age at diagnosis of the youngest relative diagnosed with CRC. CRC incidence has increased(More)
The genomic DNA encoding the exons for the human neural phosphoprotein B-50 (GAP-43) was isolated using rat-based cDNA probes and oligonucleotides. Exons 2 and 3 were isolated from a genomic library, exon 1 was amplified by PCR on total genomic DNA. The gene consists of 3 exons and 2 large introns. The first exon encodes the N-terminal 10 amino acids of(More)
