BACKGROUND: Data capture for clinical registries or pilot studies is often performed in spreadsheet-based applications like Microsoft Excel or IBM SPSS. Usually, data is transferred into statistic software, such as SAS, R or IBM SPSS Statistics, for analyses afterwards. Spreadsheet-based solutions suffer from several drawbacks: It is generally not possible to ensure a sufficient right and role management; it is not traced who has changed data when and why. Therefore, such systems are not able to comply with regulatory requirements for electronic data capture in clinical trials...

Recombinant Adeno-associated virus (rAAV) is a commonly used gene therapy vector for the delivery of therapeutic transgenes in a variety of human diseases, but pre-existing serum antibodies to viral capsid proteins can greatly inhibit rAAV transduction of tissues. We have assayed serum from patients with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD), Becker Muscular Dystrophy (DMD), Inclusion Body Myositis (IBM), and GNE myopathy (GNE). These were compared to serum from otherwise normal human subjects to determine the extent of pre-existing serum antibodies to rAAVrh74, rAAV1, rAAV2, rAAV6, rAAV8 and rAAV9...

This study investigates how the intelligibility advantage of ideal binary mask (IBM) processing in synthesizing speech is affected by the use of a small number of the most energetic channels. In experiment 1, IBM-processed Mandarin speech that had been corrupted by speech spectrum-shaped noise or two-talker babble was synthesized by using as few as four of the most energetic target-dominated channels at each frame. This approach provided intelligibility comparable to that of speech synthesized with all of the target-dominated channels...
