trials and the local registry database. The model was run until the patients were 100 years old or died. Figure 1 Structure of the Markov model The main assumptions made in this model were as follows; 1) patients in the acute health state (MI, stroke, HF) would not move to other acute health state; 2) the effectiveness of n-3 PUFAs would be maintained over life-time horizon; 3) the duration in each cycle was 1 year. The discount rate of 3% was applied for both costs and outcomes. The time horizon of the model and the effects in life expectancy

stage of estate development ( Herbst 1975 ). Ursynów’s design was an attempt to combine the positives of the neighbourhood unit and traditional urban space, forming a ‘city within the city’. Due to the above-mentioned features, Ursynów Północny presents more qualities that are endangered than issues to be tackled. Therefore the article focuses on the potential of housing estates and good practices which can be tracked throughout their lifetime. In this paper Ursynów Północny is considered as a part of the city equivalent to inner-city districts. Planning the

In order to enhance the long-term stability of DSA for copper electroplating process, in the present study, noble metal oxides with excellent electrochemical properties was used and optimum condition was determined the ratio of noble metal oxides, surface pre-treatment of titanium substrate and heat treatment. The effect of the surface pretreatment of titanium substrate and ratio of noble metal oxides were estimated by accelerated test at the highly current density conditions. The lifetime of DSA increase six-fold higher as the oxide thickness of Ta 7 : Ir 3 composition ratio. Under the optimal condition, surface pretreatment led to dramatic increase in the lifetime of DSA.

and offer treatment accordingly. A lifetime time horizon was used to estimate the long-term costs and outcomes of infants becoming blind. All future costs and outcomes were discounted at a rate of 3% per annum. For intercountry comparisons, costs were converted into international dollars ($IS) using the purchase power parity exchange rate of $IS1 = 17.659 THB (Thai baht) [ 9 ]. All costs were adjusted to 2013 values using the general consumer price index [ 10 ]. A probabilistic sensitivity analysis was conducted using a second-order Monte Carlo simulation with 1
