Intraobserver error associated with anthropometric measurements made by dietitians
(Sociedad Española de Nutrición Parenteral y Enteral, 2010)
[EN] Introduction: Although dietitians play an important role in the anthropometric assessment, reports on measurements made by these health professionals rarely include estimates of measurement error. Aim: To estimate ...
Biosimilars – the way forward
(Cogora Limited, 2010-05)
Biotechnology represents a considerable opportunity, but also a challenge, given the complexities and risk associated with the development and manufacture of biological medicines.
The Derivation of Dative Alternations
(John Benjamins Publishing Company, 2010)
[EN]This paper argues for an updated version of the classical derivational approach to Double Object Constructions (DOCs) and parallel dative construction across languages. We extensively argue that the arguments to postulate ...
Expression and activity profiles of DPP IV/CD26 and NEP/CD10 glycoproteins in the human renal cancer are tumor-type dependent
(BioMed Central, 2010-05)
Background: Cell-surface glycoproteins play critical roles in cell-to-cell recognition, signal transduction and regulation, thus being crucial in cell proliferation and cancer etiogenesis and development. DPP IV and NEP ...
Ceramide and ceramide 1-phosphate in health and disease
(BioMed Central, 2010-02)
Sphingolipids are essential components of cell membranes, and many of them regulate vital cell functions. In particular, ceramide plays crucial roles in cell signaling processes. Two major actions of ceramides are the ...
A novel form of human disease with a protease-sensitive prion protein and heterozygosity methionine/valine at codon 129: Case report
(BioMed Central, 2010-10)
Background: Sporadic Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (sCJD) is a rare neurodegenerative disorder in humans included in the group of Transmissible Spongiform Encephalopathies or prion diseases. The vast majority of sCJD cases are ...
A complex systems modelling approach for decentralized simulation of electrical microgrids
The structure and behavior of Electrical Grids share many of the properties of Complex Computer Systems, with microgrids and other decentralized electrical systems attached to them, so they can be interpreted as Systems ...
Modeling smart grids as complex systems through the implementation of intelligent hubs
The electrical system is undergoing a profound change of state, which will lead to what is being called the smart grid. The necessity of a complex system approach to cope with ongoing changes is presented: combining a ...
Global Self-Regulation of the Cellular Metabolic Structure
(Public Library of Science, 2010-03-02)
Background: Different studies have shown that cellular enzymatic activities are able to self-organize spontaneously, forming a metabolic core of reactive processes that remain active under different growth conditions while ...
Global Stability of Polytopic Linear Time-Varying Dynamic Systems under Time-Varying Point Delays and Impulsive Controls
(Hindawi Publishing Corporation, 2010)
This paper investigates the stability properties of a class of dynamic linear systems possessing several linear time-invariant parameterizations (or configurations) which conform a linear time-varying polytopic dynamic ...
