BACKGROUND We documented previously the entity of trichloroethylene (TCE) hypersensitivity syndrome (THS) in occupational workers. OBJECTIVES To identify the culprit causative compound, determine the type of hypersensitivity of THS, and establish a screening test for subjects at risk of THS. METHODS TCE and its main metabolites chloral hydrate (CH),(More)
—We investigate the performance of First-In, First-Out (FIFO) queues over wireless networks. We characterize the stability region of a general scenario where an arbitrary number of FIFO queues, which are served by a wireless medium, are shared by an arbitrary number of flows. In general, the stability region of this system is non-convex. Thus, we develop a(More)
We consider a transportation system of heterogeneously connected vehicles, where not all vehicles are able to communicate. Heterogeneous connectivity in transportation systems is coupled to practical constraints such that (i) not all vehicles may be equipped with devices having communication interfaces, (ii) some vehicles may not prefer to communicate due(More)
The present study aimed to explore the stability, curability and sequelae of cases of Trichloroethylene (TCE) Hypersensitivity Syndrome (THS), and to investigate the causal allergens of THS. Two cases of THS were followed-up in the current study; both cases were healing following glucocorticoid therapy and were discharged >10 weeks prior to follow-up. A(More)

Cigarette smoking is an important risk factor for hypertension. However, the effects on hypertension of the interaction between smoking and the genotype of the nicotinic acetylcholine receptor gene are unclear. The purpose of this study is to determine whether the CHRNA3 rs6495308 genotype affects the association between daily cigarette consumption and(More)
