OBJECTIVE To externally validate currently available bladder cancer nomograms for prediction of all-cause survival (ACS), cancer-specific survival (CSS), other-cause mortality (OCM) and progression-free survival (PFS). PATIENTS AND METHODS Retrospective analysis of a prospectively maintained database of 282 patients who underwent robot-assisted radical(More)
PURPOSE To test the feasibility of electron paramagnetic resonance imaging (EPRI) to provide non-invasive images of tissue redox status using redox-sensitive paramagnetic contrast agents. MATERIAL AND METHODS Nitroxide free radicals were used as paramagnetic agents and a custom-built 300 MHz EPR spectrometer/imager was used for all studies. A phantom was(More)
Retrievals using synthetic background fields and observations for the Special Sensor Microwave Imager Sounder (SSMIS) instrument are performed using a one-dimensional variational data assimilation (1DVAR) scheme for clear and cloudy nonprecipitating skies over open oceans. Two retrieval techniques are implemented in the 1DVAR and are extensively tested.(More)
The confluence of progress in micro-actuators, power sources, and mixed-signal microelectronics have recently moved swarm robotics and robot communities from simulation to reality. Swarms of 20 to 100 robots are in use already, implementations with several hundred robots are practicable , and communities exceeding a thousand robots are certainly(More)
INTRODUCTION This application note describes a high-accuracy, low-cost power meter based on the ADE7756. The design is for use in the North American 3-wire/single-phase application. This meter may also be used in a single-phase, 2-wire distribution system with a minimal amount of changes. The reference design is comprised of the ADE7756, a micro-controller,(More)
The development of the RTTOV fast radiative transfer model — part of the EUMETSAT-sponsored NWP-SAF activities — has continued since the release of RTTOV-7 in March 2002. Over the last two years, more developments have been made, leading to the release of RTTOV-8 to users in Nov 2004. Around 70 users worldwide have already received the new code. RTTOV is a(More)
1. This phase-I study (NCT02240290) was designed to investigate the human absorption, disposition and mass balance of 14C-tozadenant, a novel A2a receptor antagonist in clinical development for Parkinson s disease. 2. Six healthy male subjects received a single oral dose of tozadenant (240 mg containing 81.47 KBq of [14C]-tozadenant). Blood, urine and feces(More)
