This paper describes an advanced care and alert portable telemedical monitor (AMON), a wearable medical monitoring and alert system targeting high-risk cardiac/respiratory patients. The system includes continuous collection and evaluation of multiple vital signs, intelligent multiparameter medical emergency detection, and a cellular connection to a medical(More)
Owing to the lack of randomised controlled trials no standard of chemotherapy exists in the treatment of advanced biliary tract carcinoma. 5-fluorouracil or gemcitabine is recommended based on small and predominately phase II trials. The aim of this analysis was to analyse existing trials, even small and nonrandomised, and identify superior regimens.(More)
BACKGROUND BI 2536, a novel Polo-like kinase 1 inhibitor, was assessed in patients with unresectable advanced exocrine adenocarcinoma of the pancreas. METHODS The study employed a two-stage design. Randomised first-line patients received BI 2536 200 mg on day 1 (n=43) or 60 mg on days 1-3 (n=43) every 21 days. Recruitment of second-line patients was(More)
We h a ve modiied the popular Mbone tool Vic (VIdeo Conferencing) to use Arequipa (Application REQuested IP over ATM). The latter enables applications and in particular Vic, to request a direct ATM connection for its exclusive use and to directly control the traac parameters of this connection. We have also implemented ATM Forum's UNI4.0 signaling and(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS Patients with advanced hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) face a dismal prognosis, as no effective palliative chemotherapy exists. Moreover, treatment of patients with hepatocellular carcinoma presents a major challenge, because associated cirrhosis limits the choice of chemotherapeutic agents. We evaluated the activity and toxicity of(More)
This paper gives a technical overview of different networking technologies, such as the Internet, ATM. It describes different approaches of how to run IP on top of an ATM network, and assesses their potential to be used as an integrated services network. For many years, the ATM based Broadband-ISDN has generally been regarded as the ultimate networking(More)
