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)
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)
One of the essential tools to exploit satellite radiance data in an NWP model assimilation system is a fast radiative transfer (RT) model. This includes both the forward model, which computes satellite radiances for a given profile vector, and its jacobian which computes the change in radiances with respect to the input profile variables. The RTTOV fast RT(More)
Strategies for Maintaining Large Robot Communities S. English, J. Gough, A. Johnson, R. Spanton, J. Sun, R. Crowder, and K.-P. Zauner School of Electronics and Computer Science, University of Southampton, U.K. The confluence of progress in micro-actuators, power sources, and mixed-signal microelectronics have recently moved swarm(More)
In common with other global NWP centres, assimilation of radiances from the ATOVS instrument package at the Met Office results in a large benefit to global NWP forecasts (English et al., 2000) and has been used operationally since mid-1999 in the Met Office global 3D-Var system. Recently work has been carried out to assess the impact of using radiances from(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 microcontroller,(More)
Observations from the Atmospheric Infrared Sounder (AIRS) have been operationally assimilated into the Met Office’s Numerical Weather Prediction (NWP) model since 26 May 2004. AIRS observations are screened by a 1D-Var pre-processing stage before being passed to the Met Office’s 4D-Var data assimilation system. The 1D-Var pre-processing stage is used for(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)
