Twenty-nine patients underwent courses of home parenteral nutrition therapy ranging from 1.5 to 52 months (mean 14.5 months). The primary diagnoses responsible for the requirement of home parenteral nutrition were radiation enteritis in seven patients, short bowel syndrome secondary to resection in seven, Crohn's disease in two, malabsorption states in six,(More)
The clinical and nutritional significance of radiation enteritis was assessed in eight patients with chronic diarrhea which followed curative doses of radiotherapy for pelvic malignancies. Steatorrhea, found in seven malnourished patients, was ascribed to ileal disease or previous surgery, or to bacterial contamination of the small intestine. Lactose(More)
Interindividual and intraindividual variation in total energy expenditure (TEE) were examined in 17 healthy, free-living men (weight, 56.4 to 82.4 kg; age, 18 to 30 years). TEE over 14 days, resting metabolic rate (RMR), and body composition were measured two or three times during 77 days of fixed caloric intake using doubly labeled water, respiratory gas(More)
The software architecture of distributed systems is about to change due to new requirements of modern mobile devices. New network techniques, like ad-hoc radio communication or peer-to-peer networks allow mobile devices to sense their environment and to interact with other devices dynamically. This paper presents a cutting-edge way to describe objects and(More)
Software cockpits (software project control centers) provide systematic support for monitoring and controlling the activities in a software development project. Important aspects are to track progress, to visualize team performance, and to provide feedback about the quality of delivered results. Therefore, software cockpits integrate and visualize data from(More)
The growing availability of wireless LAN technologies together with the pervasive use of mobile and embedded computing devices gives strong raise for internet services adapted to context, particularly the location of their use. In multiuser cooperation environments for closed area communities like learning and teaching teams in wireless university campus(More)
The fetal alcohol syndrome is primarily an impairment of growth and development. Zinc deficiency also causes abnormal fetal growth. Moreover, alcohol has been shown in some rodent studies to impair placental transport of zinc. The purpose of this investigation was to define better normal human placental zinc transport and the effects of alcohol on this(More)
