The authors carried out a door-to-door survey to determine the prevalence of epilepsy among 55,000 people in China. The lifetime prevalence was 7.0/1000, and 41% of all persons had never received appropriate treatment. The prevalence of active epilepsy was 4.6/1000, and 63% of people with active epilepsy had not received antiepileptic treatment in the week(More)
BACKGROUND Many people with epilepsy need not experience further seizures if the diagnosis and treatment are correct. Most epilepsy patients have convulsions, which are usually fairly easy to diagnose. This study tested a model for treatment of people with convulsive forms of epilepsy at primary health-care level in rural areas of China. METHODS Patients(More)
This paper proposes a new selective aperiodic checkpointing approach for VLR (Visitor Location Register) failure restoration in wireless mobile networks. In this approach, the VLR data are backed up in the non-volatile storage whenever the location update counter for that VLR exceeds the predetermined threshold. It restores the backed up VLR data after the(More)
In baboons the right cerebral hemisphere was embolised by a shower of microemboli, immediately followed by one large embolus designed to occlude the middle cerebral artery (MCA). One hour after embolism a significant, though small, reduction in blood flow and oxygen consumption of the embolised hemisphere was recorded, at which time the animals were killed(More)
The speech generated by hidden Markov model (HMM)-based speech synthesis systems (HTS) suffers from a 'buzzing' sound, which is due to an oversimplified vocoding technique. This paper proposes a new excitation model that uses a pitch-scaled spectrum for the parametric representation of speech in HTS. A residual signal produced using inversing filtering(More)
The brain and plasma levels of chlordecone were monitored after daily oral administration of chlordecone at 10 to 50 mg/kg/day. At a low dose, the plasma level of chlordecone increased steadily and the brain level showed a steady increase and then a plateau. However, at the higher dose the brain and plasma concentrations of chlordecone decayed biphasically.(More)
