Component-based design can help manage the complexity of high-performance scientific simulations, where it has become increasingly clear that no single research group can effectively develop, select, or tune all of the components in a given application and that no single tool, solver, or solution strategy can seamlessly span the entire spectrum efficiently.(More)
Acaricidal (tick) and insecticidal (flea) efficacy of systemically and cutaneously distributed ectoparasiticide products for dogs are compared based on permethrin and fluralaner as representative molecules. Results of efficacy studies against fleas and ticks are reviewed that show generally good to excellent results. Both externally and systemically(More)
AIMS To describe a community and workplace outbreak of tuberculosis in Hawke's Bay in 2002. METHODS Contact tracing and case definitions used in this study followed New Zealand guidelines for tuberculosis control. DNA fingerprinting of Mycobacterium tuberculosis isolates was performed by restriction fragment length polymorphism (RFLP). RESULTS 19 new(More)
Acaricides are used to treat and prevent tick infestations, and a common clinical scenario is to administer an acaricide on observing an attached tick. Consequently, immediate acaricidal efficacy (onset of activity and speed of kill) results are clinically valuable. This study evaluated the immediate efficacy of four commercially available acaricides(More)
Healthy dogs with low antibody titer to Bordetella bronchiseptica were vaccinated intranasally with an avirulent live vaccine, subcutaneously with an antigen extract vaccine, or subcutaneously and intranasally with a placebo. Intranasally vaccinated dogs developed B. bronchiseptica-specific IgA titers in nasal secretions that remained at high levels until(More)
1. Introduction This paper introduces three component technology initiatives that focus on reducing the software development challenges faced by today's computational scientists. Rapid advances and increasing diversity in high-performance hardware platforms continue to spur the growing complexity of scientific simulations. The resulting environment presents(More)
The only fluralaner-related conclusion presented in a study comparing the efficacy of fluralaner and sarolaner for control of the tick Amblyomma americanum on dogs is based on study times that are outside the label administration recommendations. Label recommendations for fluralaner treatment of A. americanum on dogs in the USA require re-administration at(More)

A parallel component environment places constraints on performance measurement and modeling. For instance, it must be possible to observe component operation without access to the source code. Furthermore, applications that are composed dynamically at run time require reusable performance interfaces for component interface monitoring. This thesis describes(More)
Lack of complete outpatient medical records is a chronic problem. Most facilities are only able to find 60% to 70% of records for appointments. Many records have incomplete laboratory and x-ray information. A program utilizing Ambulatory Care Teams (ACTS) was tested at the Air Force hospital at Carswell AFB. Records were pulled 48 hours prior to(More)
