In the present work, we present a new formulation for the estimation of the soil moisture in the root zone based on the measured value of soil moisture at the surface. The method sheds lights on the relationship between surface and root zone soil moisture. It derives from a simplified form of the soil water balance equation and provides a closed form of the(More)

Reducing blood pressure (BP) to target levels is a major priority in preventing clinical events in hypertension. Typically this requires more than one drug, and recent guidelines on hypertension management therefore recommend starting with combination treatment in many patients. Diuretics have often been part of such therapy, usually paired with angiotensin(More)
Our purpose was to determine the maximum tolerated dosage of rhIL-6 after high-dose cytotoxic chemotherapy and autologous BMT in patients with advanced breast cancer. Twenty patients (median age 43.5 years) received either CY and thiotepa (n = 3) or CY, thiotepa and carboplatin (n = 17) for 4 days. Unpurged autologous BM was reinfused 72 h later. Daily(More)
To evaluate the hematologic effects of recombinant human interleukin-6 (rhIL-6, Escherichia coli, SDZ ILS 969, IL-6), and determine its toxicity profile, we performed a phase I trial of IL-6 in 22 patients with various myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS), platelet counts < 100,000/microL, and < 5% bone marrow (BM) blasts. Patients received one of four doses of(More)
Synthetic aperture radar (SAR) acquisitions are particularly useful to produce flood maps thanks to their all-weather and day-night capabilities. However, repetition intervals of radar instruments are in the order of several days for routine operations, reaching daily or higher frequencies only in tasked conditions. Therefore, to follow flood dynamics,(More)
