Predicting the severity of the grass pollen season and the effect of climate change in Northwest Europe

guidance addressing these questions. We propose two previously unexplored approaches for forecasting the severity of the grass pollen season on the basis of statistical and mechanistic models. The results ...

Maturation of Esophageal Motility and Esophagogastric Junction in Preterm Infants

Esophageal pressure topography and pressure impedance metrics were derived. Mixed models with repeated measures were used for statistical analysis. Results: We analyzed 137 nutritive swallows from 36 motility ...
