The increasing use of discrete simulation in modelling large and complex systems brings new challenges. One such challenge is the need to devise ways of developing modular approaches to reduce the complexity of model building and to make such models easier to maintain. This paper discusses an approach, known as selective external modularity, that builds on(More)
We measured NF-κB, IKK, c-Fos, and GRα mRNA expression and in vivo glucocorticoid sensitivity in patients with rheumatoid arthritis. A very low dose intravenous dexamethasone suppression test and real-time PCR quantitation of mRNA of these genes were performed on blood samples from 21 rheumatoid arthritis patients who were not on glucocorticoids during the(More)
The objective of this article is to describe a case of an electric burn to the genitalia causing scrotal and testicular lesion, and the subsequent reconstruction using a skin graft. The patient was a 10-year-old boy who was victim of an electric burn that harmed the genitalia. There was extended skin loss, penile, scrotal and partial testicular lesion. The(More)
