BACKGROUND AND AIM The risks of recurrent intracerebral haemorrhage (ICH) vary widely (0-24%). Patients with ICH also have risk factors for ischaemic stroke (IS) and a proportion of ICH survivors re-present with an IS. This dilemma has implications for prophylactic treatment. This study aims to determine the risk of recurrent stroke events (both ICH and IS)(More)
OBJECTIVES to compare erythrocyte thiamine pyrophosphate concentrations in elderly people with those in healthy younger people; to determine if any differences can be attributed to age or to co-morbidities. DESIGN cross-sectional and 3-year longitudinal surveys. SETTING primary care. PATIENTS 100 volunteer blood donors and 222 elderly people from a(More)
In the mid eighties, the System Architecture Research Centre at City University developed a message-passing, UNIX compliant micro kernel (Meshix) for our own scalable distributed memory architecture (Topsy). Over the last two years we have been engaged in a research programme aimed at learning from this experience, and developing a new operating system(More)
If sensitive information is to be included in a shared web, access controls will be required. However, the complex software needed to provide a web service is prone to failure. To provide access control without relying on such software, encryption can be used. Bob is a prototype system that supports complex access control expressions through the transparent(More)

SYNOPSIS This report describes a series of bending tests to examine the influence of web slenderness on the rotation capacity of cold-formed rectangular hollow sections (RHS) for use in plastic design. The results indicate that the plastic web slenderness limits in design standards, which are based on tests of I-sections, are not conservative for RHS. There(More)
