BACKGROUND Pathogenic avian influenza virus (H5N1) has the potential to cause a major global pandemic in humans. Safe and effective vaccines that induce immunologic memory and broad heterotypic response are needed. METHODS AND FINDINGS Healthy adults aged 18-60 and > 60 years (n = 313 and n = 173, respectively) were randomized (1:1) to receive two primary(More)
Thyroid ultrasound is used in the routine clinical assessment and the follow-up of thyroid disorders. The follow- up of patients with thyroid nodules is mostly based on thyroid nodule volume determinations performed by different observers. However, for the judgment of treatment effects there is uncertainty about the interobserver variation of thyroid nodule(More)
Overview In the design of technical products and processes, physical models play an important role for stimulating creative acts and for supporting communication in teams. In parallel computer based planning, tools are used to create numerically exact systems which can be viewed, analyzed, simulated, reproduced and modified in various ways. In this article,(More)
Three-dimensional computer-aided modelling of dynamic processes supported by virtual reality techniques like 3D-stereo vision does not reach the usability (ease, concrete-ness, intuitiveness, directness) we experience in modelling with real physical objects. We propose an interface that aims at coupling two previously separated model worlds-the the real(More)
Three-dimensional computer-aided modeling of dynamic processes supported by virtual reality techniques such as 3D-stereo viewing and nD manipulation devices does not reach the usability (ease, concreteness, intuitiveness, directness) that we experience in modeling with real physical objects. Pure virtual prototyping may reduce cognition and communication.(More)
We describe a patient who underwent thoracic radiation therapy for biopsy-proven pulmonary spindle cell sarcoma in the left lower lobe, 15 months after birth. At the age of 37 she developed shoulder pain, fatigue, and progressive exertion dyspnoea. Chest X-ray revealed a pulmonary mass in the left lower lobe due to a cytology-proven malignant tumour.The(More)
