Investigating context-aware clues to assist navigation for visually impaired people Nicholas A. Bradley, Mark D. Dunlop Department of Computer and Information Sciences University of Strathclyde, Glasgow, Scotland, G1 1XH, UK Tel: +44 (0) 141 552 4400, Fax: +44 (0) 141 552 5330 E-mail: {Nick.Bradley, Mark.Dunlop}@cis.strath.ac.uk Abstract. It is estimated that 7.4 million people in Europe are visually impaired [1]. Limitations of traditional mobility aids (i.e. white canes and guide dogs) coupled with a proliferation of context-aware technologies (e.g. Electronic Travel Aids, Global Positioning Systems and Geographical Information Systems), have stimulated research and development into navigational systems for the visually impaired. However, current research appears very technology focused, which has led to an insufficient appreciation of Human Computer Interaction, in particular task/requirements analysis and notions of contextual interactions. The study reported here involved a small-scale investigation into how visually impaired people interact with their environmental context during micro-navigation (through immediate environment) and/or macro-navigation (through distant environment) on foot. The purpose was to demonstrate the heterogeneous nature of visually impaired people in interaction with their environmental context. Results from a previous study involving sighted participants were used for comparison. Results revealed that when describing a route, visually impaired people vary in their use of different types of navigation clues – both as a group, when compared with sighted participants, and as individuals. Usability implications and areas for further work are identified and discussed.

Chronic fatigue syndromeprm

CHRONIC FATIGUE SYNDROME (Myalgic Encephalitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome) ©2012 Keith Berndtson, MD CHRONIC FATIGUE SYNDROME Keith Berndtson, MD Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) is a difficult-to-treat medical condition whose cause is not yet known. In its 23 October 2009 issue, Science published a study by researchers from the Whittemore-Peterson Institute (WPI), The Cleveland Clinic, and the National Cancer Institute implicating a potential causative role for a retrovirus known as XMRV.1 This study reported that, compared to healthy people, persons with CFS are 18 times more likely to have XMRV DNA in their blood. Retroviruses, including the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) are know to activate other latent viruses including several from the Herpesvirus family. Unfortunately for sufferers, two years later the XMRV hypothesis went down in flames as several subsequent studies failed to confirm the genetic presence of XMRV in any CFS patients.2 One study claimed to have proved that the original research had found contaminated DNA. Until the fall of 2011, XMRV presented a big challenge to retroviral researchers, as the studies were hard reconcile, meaning one or more of the research teams were getting it wrong. CFS research is famous for producing false leads and misinterpretations of data.3 Nothing gets attention like controversy. CFS is now drawing the attention of a new crop of disciplined, scientific minds. For patients with CFS, and the clinicians who treat them, this is a step in the right direction. On August 23, 2010 a study appeared in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences by Lo and colleagues reporting the presence of DNA fragments from a class of retrovirus known as MLV (mouse leukemia virus). MLVs were present in 85% of 37 CFS patients tested, and in 7% of 44 controls.4 These findings appeared to confirm some role for retrovirus in the pathobiology of CFS, but it was still unknown what role XMRV or MLV retroviruses play in CFS. Some observers felt that these retroviruses interact with other infectious or environmental agents to complicate and worsen CFS severity.5 Some observers were convinced that these viruses play a major causative role in CFS. Still others argued that the data were unclear that these viruses were even present in patients with CFS. In its 1 July 2011 issue, Science published an editorial expression of concern about the October 2009 study.6 In that issue, a study by Tobias Paprotka and a national team of virology experts established that the XMRV DNA found by the WPI team was a

conosciamola insieme PresentazioneLe persone a cui viene diagnosticata una malattia mieloproliferativa cronica del sangue (mielofibrosi, policitemia vera o trombocitemia essenziale) oltre alla reazione naturale di ansia e paura per una malattia di questo tipo, spesso sono disorientate perché le informazioni sono scarse, oppure scritte in linguaggio tecnico e quindi difficili da capire.Che malattia è? Quali sono i sintomi? Come si cura? Come evolve nel tempo? Come cambierà la mia vita quotidiana? Queste sono le domande che tutti noi pazientici poniamo, per cui chiediamo ai medici di darci risposte chiare.Per questo AIL, insieme al Gruppo AIL Pazienti MMP Ph-, ha promosso la realizzazione di questa collana di opuscoli, di facile lettura e con tutte le informazioni essenziali. Quindi non un trattato scientifico ma una guida pratica, scritta espressamente per noi.Scopo di questi opuscoli è aiutarci a convivere con la nostra malattia. Saper riconoscere quali sono i sintomi tipici e i "segnali d'allarme" rende più facile il nostro rapporto e il nostro dialogo con gli specialisti ematologi. Tutto questo si traduce in un monitoraggio più attento ed in cure più tempestive ed efficaci.Ciascun opuscolo è scritto da specialisti ematologi, ossia dai migliori esperti sull'argomento. Il contributo del Gruppo Pazienti è stato quello di stimolare la massima attenzione alla chiarezza del linguaggio e alla spiegazione di tutti i termini scientifici. Essere consapevoli della nostra malattia e aver capito "come funziona" è importantissimo per seguire al meglio le cure prescritte e prevenire eventuali complicazioni. Quindi è utile sia per noi sia per i nostri medici curanti. Ma non solo: capire la malattia ci aiuta anche a viverla con maggiore serenità, senza lasciarci condizionare e mantenendo una buona qualità di vita. Buona lettura!

PREVENTION DES COMPLICATIONS DE LA CORTICOTHERAPIE GENERALE DANS LES PEMPHIGUS DE L'ADULTE Catherine Prost Squarcioni Centre de Références Maladies Rares NET-DBAI-IDF Hôpital Saint Louis et hôpital Avicenne La cortisone, découverte en 1935, a transformé l'évolution de nombreuses maladies inflammatoires et auto-immunes (en particulier celle des pemphigus) qui étaient auparavant constamment mortelles. Depuis, la cortisone a été abandonnée au profit de nouvelles molécules encore plus efficaces et provoquant moins d'effets secondaires ; de nombreux progrès ont été faits pour prévenir ces derniers. Avant d'aborder précisément ce sujet, quelques remarques pour expliquer notre jargon médical et notre démarche thérapeutique dans les pemphigus. La corticothérapie générale s'utilisant de la même manière dans les différentes formes de pemphigus, en particulier dans les pemphigus vulgaires et les pemphigus superficiels, nous parlerons de pemphigus sans plus de précision. • On entend par corticothérapie générale (ou systémique) l'administration de corticoïdes par voie orale (par la bouche), intramusculaire ou intraveineuse (piqûres).

Schilddrüsenunterfunktion (Hypothyreose): International gilt Jean Dodds als die große Kapazität rund um die Schilddrüsenunterfunktion. Auf Bitte einiger Afghanenfreunde habe ich, unter Einbeziehung ihrer Veröffentlichungen im Internet unteeinen ihrer aktuellen amerikanischen Vorträge (gab es als Skript, Vortrag gehalten Juni 2002) frei übersetzt - was ohne ein englisch-deutsches medizinisches Fachwörterbuch nicht ganz einfach gewesen ist. Hinhaltlich ergänzt habe ich diesen Vortrag aus anderen Quellen (siehe Internetreferenzen am Schluss). Da es sich um einen Fachaufsatz handelt, sei allen, die mit dem Thema noch nicht vertraut sind, deals Vorab-Lektüre dringend empfohlen. Eine der im Text erwähnten Tabellen (No. 3) habe ich noch nicht eingescannt. Die Basis bildet, ergänzt um Artikel aus den Links am Ende, ein Referat von einem Seminar über Autoimmunkrankheiten beim Hund vom Sonntag 09. Juni 2002 präsentiert von der C.I.M.D.A. (Canine Immune Mediated Disease Awareness) Doch zuvor noch eine knappe Wiederholung der wichtigsten Fakten über die Schilddrüse: Ein Überblick „Was ist Schilddrüsenunterfunktion" = Hypothyreose? Die Schilddrüsenfehlfunktion ist eine der häufigsten enokrinen Probleme bei Hunden. Praktisch alle Rassen sind betroffen. Während epidemische Daten spärlich sind, scheinen Schilddrüsenfunktionsstörungen immer häufiger in bestimmten Rassen und Linien aufzu- tauchen, besonders bei großen Hunden. Diese Tatsache deutet auf einen genetischen Vererbungsmodus hin. Die Schilddrüse ist an der Stoffwechselregulation aller Zellfunktionen beteiligt. Aus diesem Grund führt eine Reduktion der Schilddrüsenfunktion zu einer breiten Spanne von klinischen Symptomen. Das macht es so schwierig, ohne geeignete Labortests und eine erfahrene, professionelle Interpretation der Ergebnisse eine exakte Diagnose auf diese Krankheit zu stellen. Die häufigste Form der Schilddrüsenunterfunktion [Anmerkung: englisch „Hpothyroidism" oder deutsch „Hypothyreose"] ist die autoimmune Schilddrüsen- entzündung [Anmerkung: englisch „Hypthyroiditis"], eine familiale Autoimmunerkrankung mit Erbdisposition. In diesem Fall greift das tiereigene Immunsystem das Schilddrüsengewebe an und zerstört schließlich die Schilddrüse. Der Körper wird dies für eine Weile durch eine erhöhte Produktion von Schilddrüsenhormonen kompensieren, aber wenn die Reserven erst einmal erschöpft sind, wird das Tier die klinischen Symptome für Schilddrüsenunterfunktion ausprägen. Die Schilddrüsenphysiologie Die Schilddrüse besteht aus zwei Lappen rund um die Luftröhre. Es wurde festgestellt, dass sie wenigstens zwei miteinander verwandte Hormone produziert: Thyroxine (T4, Tetrajodthyronin) und Tri-Jodothyronin (T3). Der einzige strukturelle Unterschied besteht aus 3 Jodionen, die dem T3-Hormon angeheftet sind, und 4 Atomen an dem T4-Hormon. Rund 90% der ausgeschütteten

Characterising patients and controls with brain graphs constructed from fMRI data September 28, 2012 Systems Biology DTC University of Oxford Network science is a novel method of investigating the structure and function of the brain. We used network analysis in an attempt to distinguish between braingraphs constructed from fMRI data from patients and controls. The nodes in thebrain graphs are spatial regions of interest and the strength of their connectionis the correlation of the blood oxygen level-dependent (BOLD) signal of pairs ofnodes. The first data set contained little temporal information, so we performeda spectral clustering method on the communicability networks generated fromthe data. We found that there was some distinction between healthy and brain-damaged individuals. The second data set contained time-series data, whichallowed us to construct time-dependent adjacency matrices. The patients werediagnosed with schizophrenia, and the data was taken with the patients andcontrols taking the drugs Aripiprazole, Sulpiride, or a placebo. We performedtime-dependent community detection on the multilayer networks and the meanflexibility of the network was found. We found that for all drugs, the controlshad a higher mean network flexibility than the patients.

The Effect of Caffeine on Heart Rate During Submaximal Exercise as Subjects Become Habituated to Caffeine Melody S. Axtell Mentor: Ted Anderson, Ph.D., Kinesiology Committee: Ryan Botts, Ph. D., Math/Computer Science, Brandon Sawyer, Ph.D., Biology/Kinesiology Abstract Caffeine is the most commonly used stimulant in the world. Caffeine is consumed by athletes and fitness enthusiasts to boost performance in both aerobic endurance events such as a marathon, as well as anaerobic high intensity activities such as weight lifting. Common means of consumption of caffeine include drinking coffee before exercise or taking a pre-workout energy drink in which caffeine is usually combined with additional ergogenic ingredients. With regular use, caffeine's effectiveness can diminish. Recent research suggests that tolerance, or habituation, may be established in a very short amount of time. This study examines the rate at which college students become habituated to the effect of caffeine as measured by their daily performance of a sub-maximal fitness test, the Queens College Step Test. Results of this study will be used as a first step in defining a schedule of caffeine supplementation that maximizes caffeine effectiveness in terms of physical performance while avoiding tolerance or habituation issues. The results of this study confirm that a tolerance to caffeine can be established with four days of continual use, but that the rate at which habituation and tolerance to caffeine occurs are specific to individuals. This study also confirms that low doses of caffeine (3mg/kg) are effective at producing enhanced physical performance in submaximal exercise. Introduction Caffeine as an ergogenic aid is supported by previous research.1 Caffeine can improve physical performance for both endurance and power activities, as well as being able to mask feelings of fatigue.1 These three areas of physical performance are affected by caffeine in different ways. It is thought that caffeine improves endurance performance by increasing free fatty acid availability thus sparing glucose during endurance events. This is accomplished by stimulating the production of hormone sensitive lipase by increasing catecholamine levels.2,3 There are many factors which alter caffeine's effect on heart rate in individuals during exercise. The factors are important to understand for athletes interested in taking caffeine as an ergogenic aid, these factors include the activity being performed, the structure of caffeine and how it metabolizes physiologically, fitness level and gender, and timing of ingestion of caffeine. Caffeine is popular for it's effect on energy levels. Caffeine molecular structure is similar to that of adenosine.4 This makes caffeine a competitive inhibitor to adenosine. When adenosine receptors bind with adenosine molecules our bodies experience relaxation, fatigue, and sleep, but when adenosine receptors are bound to caffeine molecules, signals for the body to relax, feel fatigued and to ultimately sleep are not sent. This is thought to be the mechanism whereby caffeine blocks signals of fatigue.5 Caffeine does not necessarily give us energy, but it allows for the biochemical pathway to increase energy and delay fatigue, which may improve athletic performance.

Census of the Vegetation Present At Wild at Tuli, Central Tuli Block, Botswana The central Tuli Block is a relatively understudied and isolated area in terms of scientific research. Its landscape and climate closely resembles that to be found on the South side of the Limpopo River, which it abuts, but has experienced very little of the scientific research that has been conducted on the South African side of the border. For this reason we felt it was necessary to perform a census of the vegetation in the area simply to get a better understanding of the diversity of plants and what this would mean for the mammal and bird species which are and could be found in the area. Plants are the base unit for most ecosystems on land and as such it is essential to know which plant species are in an area which is being conserved so you can better understand the reasons for animal distributions, populations and fluctuations as well as knowing whether or not prospective reintroductions of previously extinct species would be successful in the area or areas similar to it.

Fda drug safety communication: fda modifies monitoring for neutropenia associated with schizophrenia medicine clozapine; approves new shared rems program for all clozapine medicines

FDA Drug Safety Communication: FDA modifies monitoring for neutropenia associated with schizophrenia medicine clozapine; approves new shared REMS program for all clozapine medicines Safety Announcement [09-15-2015] The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is making changes to the requirements for monitoring, prescribing, dispensing, and receiving the schizophrenia medicine clozapine, to address continuing safety concerns and current knowledge about a serious blood condition called severe neutropenia. Severe neutropenia is a dangerously low number of neutrophils, white blood cells that help fight infections. Severe neutropenia can be life-threatening. Treatment with clozapine may improve the symptoms of schizophrenia in patients who do not respond adequately to standard antipsychotic treatments. Symptoms of schizophrenia include hearing voices, seeing things that are not there, and being suspicious or withdrawn. Clozapine is also effective in reducing the risk of repeated suicidal behavior in patients with schizophrenia or schizoaffective disorder. We previously communicated safety information associated with clozapine i There are two parts to the changes in the requirements for treating patients with clozapine. First, we have clarified and enhanced the prescribing information for clozapine that explains how to monitor patients for neutropenia and manage clozapine treatment. Second, we approved a new, shared risk evaluation and mitigation strategy (REMS) called the Clozapine REMS Program. The revised prescribing information and the Clozapine REMS Program will improve monitoring and management of patients with severe neutropenia. The shared REMS is also expected to reduce the burden and possible confusion related to having separate registries for individual clozapine medicines. The requirements to monitor, prescribe, dispense, and receive all clozapine medicines are now incorporated into the Clozapine REMS Program. The Clozapine REMS Program replaces the six existing clozapine registries maintained by individual clozapine manufacturers. The shared REMS requires prescribers, pharmacies, and patients to enroll in a single centralized program. Patients who are currently treated with clozapine will be automatically transferred to the Clozapine REMS Program. In order to prescribe and dispense clozapine, prescribers and pharmacies will be required to be certified in the Clozapine REMS Program according to a specific transition schedule starting October 12, 2015 (see Additional Information for Prescribers section and Additional Information for Pharmacies section for more details). The monitoring recommendations for neutropenia caused by clozapine treatment have changed. Clozapine can decrease the number of neutrophils in the blood, in some cases causing severe
