AIMS This report describes the baseline characteristics of patients in the Reduction of Events with Darbepoetin alfa in Heart Failure trial (RED-HF) which is testing the hypothesis that anaemia correction with darbepoetin alfa will reduce the composite endpoint of death from any cause or hospital admission for worsening heart failure, and improve other(More)
Samples of blood for estimation of beta-thromboglobulin (B.T.G.) in normal subjects have been obtained both from blood donors at the end of their donation and from other volunteers by standard venepuncture. The former was a satisfactory method in males only. By standard venepuncture females have on average lower values than males and in the pre-menopausal(More)

Thyroid function tests were performed on 115 spinal cord injury patients. Serum thyroxine, thyroid stimulating hormone, and T3 resin uptake were within normal range in all patients. Serum T3 levels tended to be low in paraplegic and quadriplegic patients, even though they were clinically euthyroid and other thyroid functions were normal. Serum reverse T3(More)
Tamoxifen is a known anti-cancer drug and established estrogen receptor modulator. Few clinical studies have earlier implicated the drug in thrombotic complications attributable to lower anti-thrombin and protein S levels in plasma. However, action of tamoxifen on platelet signalling machinery has not been elucidated in detail. In the present report we show(More)
The paper shows how smart meters can be put to work, beyond their traditional use, towards explaining abnormal and unexpected patterns in the behavior of electrical appliances. We describe two kinds of uses, by visualizing and analyzing smart meter data for an academic building. The first gives us the ability to find anomalous appliance behaviors and the(More)
As buildings get smarter they need to be aware of their spaces and occupants to improve prediction and management of energy consumption and environment customization based on user preference. User identification is crucial to this. However, accuracy of identification, intrusiveness and cost are important factors that one considers before installing such a(More)
The use of smart-meters is proliferating, they are now being deployed without asking the obvious question: Do we really need each of them? Beyond the cost of smart-meters, there are overheads related to installation, wiring, etc. To formally tackle this question, we first define the notion of observability that one or more pieces of information (including(More)
