BACKGROUND Erythropoiesis-stimulating agent (ESA) resistance remains incompletely understood among hemodialysis (HD) patients. METHOD A retrospective, multicenter study was designed to analyze data from 1,934 patients followed for up to two years. The outcome measure was the erythropoietin resistance index (ERI), defined as erythropoietin dosage over a(More)
This paper examines how a " Distributed Heterogeneous Relational Data Warehouse " can be integrated in a Grid environment that will provide physicists with efficient access to large and small object collections drawn from databases at multiple sites. This paper investigates the requirements of Grid-enabling such a warehouse, and explores how these(More)
Grid based systems require a database access mechanism that can provide seamless homogeneous access to the requested data through a virtual data access system, i.e. a system which can take care of tracking the data that is stored in geographically distributed heterogeneous databases. This system should provide an integrated view of the data that is stored(More)
Oracle has been progressively adding support for very large databases and extended objects. The Data Warehouse technique of Oracle may help in storing the Petabyte of data, which will be generated per year by CMS experiment. This report proposes how the Oracle9i tools could be used for event store and client side configuration to access data from Oracle(More)

The IGT runs jobs using the Globus Toolkit with a DAGMan and Condor-G front end. The virtual organization (VO) is managed using VO management scripts from the European Data Grid (EDG). Gridwide monitoring is accomplished using local tools such as Ganglia interfaced into the Globus Metadata Directory Service (MDS) and the agent based Mona Lisa. Domain(More)
Acute kidney injury requiring renal replacement therapy (RRT) is associated with an unacceptably high mortality rate. Despite the identification of the modality, timing and intensity of dialysis, membrane biocompatibility, hollow fiber and catheter properties as potential modifying factors, there is little convincing evidence for the superiority of one over(More)
