Waste heat recovery (WHR) in exhaust gas flow of automotive engines has proved to be a useful path to increase the overall efficiency of internal combustion engines (ICE). Recovery potentials of up to 7% are shown in several works in the literature. However, most of them are theoretical estimations. Some present results from prototypes fed by steady flows(More)
Compared with other well established liver enzyme parameters, carbohydrate-deficient transferrin (CDT) offers a new method for the identification of chronic alcoholism. The dependence of CDT and alcoholism/abstinence was studied in 29 controls and 64 alcoholics (both groups comprising men and women). In contrast to the currently used parameters GOT, GPT,(More)
We present a randomized double-blind study on the efficacy of caroverine in the treatment of alcohol withdrawal symptoms. The group B Ca2+ channel blocking agent caroverine was tested against meprobamate in inpatient treatment of alcohol withdrawal. Patients of both groups were similar in age, weight, duration of drinking, ingested quantities of alcohol and(More)
We present a familial study (45 members), in which 31 members have been examined. Seven were afflicted with bilateral symmetrical calcification of the basal ganglia (Fahr's syndrome), as verified by CT scans. The case history and biochemical results for one additional proband, who had died, strongly indicate that this patient also had Fahr's syndrome. The(More)
Overview: In driving hES cell technology towards widespread applications considerable effort has been focused on the improvement of culture conditions and on enabling efficient differentiation. We have established two technologies which will better enable researchers to achieve these aims. The use of feeder based protocols for the creation, expansion and(More)
Heart and vascular endothelial cells from human pluripotent stem cells are of interest for applications in cell therapy and cardiovascular disease. Differentiation protocols are now sufficiently refined that production of cardiomyocytes, endothelial-and smooth muscle cells is fairly efficient and reproducible. Genetically marked hESCs have been produced in(More)
37 of 43 patients who had been hospitalised because of schizophrenia for the first time in 1954 and subjected to electroconvulsive treatment in the same year, were reexamined 30 years later in respect of course of the disease, social situation, psychopathological pattern and late complications. Whereas in 1954 the direct treatment result was assessed as(More)
