Green Mining is a field of MSR that studies software energy consumption and relies on software performance data. Unfortunately there is a severe lack of publicly available software power use performance data. This means that green mining researchers must generate this data themselves by writing tests, building multiple revisions of a product, and then(More)
BACKGROUND Morphologic evaluation of bone marrow for neuroblastoma cells is a routine and important component of clinical staging. Specific immunostaining of malignant cells with monoclonal antibodies should be more sensitive, however, and may improve the detection of metastases and provide additional prognostic information. METHODS We looked for tumor(More)
One hundred eighteen children with metastatic (Childrens Cancer Study Group [CCSG] stage IV), extensive regional (stage III), or stage II neuroblastoma with N-myc amplification received an intensive chemotherapeutic regimen of cis-platinum, etoposide, doxorubicin, and cyclophosphamide combined with persistent aggressive attempts at complete primary tumor(More)
Fifteen cases of neuroblastoma, ganglioneuroblastoma and ganglioneuroma were studied by electron microscopy. Ultrastructural features of cytodifferentiation, including numbers of dense core neurosecretory granules (NSG) and neuritic processes, were used to evaluate variation within the neuroblastoma group to determine whether differences in(More)
The dystroglycanopathies comprise a clinically and genetically heterogeneous group of muscular dystrophies characterized by deficient glycosylation of alpha-dystroglycan. Mutations in the fukutin (FKTN) gene have primarily been identified among patients with classic Fukuyama congenital muscular dystrophy (FCMD), a severe form of dystroglycanopathy(More)
Three patients with different clinical phenotypes harbored the same point mutation at nucleotide 14709 (T14709C) in the tRNAGlu gene of mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA). The first patient was a 21-month-old child with severe congenital myopathy, respiratory distress and mild mental retardation. Muscle biopsy showed about 12% cytochrome c oxidase (COX)-negative(More)
Intracellular accumulation of phospholipids may be a consequence of inherited or acquired metabolic disorders. In Fabry disease, deficiency of alpha-galactosidase A results in storage of globotriasylceramide in numerous cells including endothelium, striated muscle (skeletal, cardiac), smooth muscle, and renal epithelium among others; the ultrastructural(More)
A 6-day-old male infant was treated for rapidly progressive pneumonia. The infection was not responsive to antibiotic and symptomatic treatment, and the infant died within 48 hours of admission. Herpes simplex type II grew from premortem respiratory and postmortem lung cultures, and immunoperoxidase staining confirmed the presence of this organism in lung(More)
We report an apparently balanced t(4;19)(q35;q13.1) as the sole cytogenetic change in a highly malignant extraskeletal sarcoma in a 12-year-old-boy. Tumor cells were negative for all immunocytochemical markers except vimentin and neuron-specific enolase. Electron microscopy indicated chondroblastic differentiation. The tumor was categorized as a malignant(More)
Neuronal ceroid lipofuscinosis (NCL) is a genetically heterogeneous group of lysosomal diseases that collectively compose the most common Mendelian form of childhood-onset neurodegeneration. It is estimated that ∼8% of individuals diagnosed with NCL by conservative clinical and histopathologic criteria have been ruled out for mutations in the nine known(More)
