Health Economic Evaluation of an Influenza Vaccination Program to Prevent Sick Leave in Employees: A Prospective Cohort Study.

Nathanael Lutz, Tom Deliens, Peter Clarys, Nick Verhaeghe & Jan Taeymans
Objective: To evaluate the cost-effectiveness of an influenza vaccination program (IVP) among employees. Methods: This health economic evaluation was embedded in a prospective cohort study of a voluntary IVP. Data on incidence, direct, and indirect costs were collected via questionnaires. Bootstrapping and modeling techniques were used to assess uncertainty of the results. Results: In the base-scenario, the IVP was less effective, more expensive and thus, neither cost-effective nor cost-beneficial. When applying a sensitivity analysis using...

Total Energy Expenditure, Energy Intake, and Body Composition in Endurance Athletes Across the Training Season: a Systematic Review

Bengt Kayser, Yves Schutz & Katarina Melzer
Background: Endurance athletes perform periodized training in order to prepare for main competitions and maximize performance. However, the coupling between alterations of total energy expenditure (TEE), energy intake, and body composition during different seasonal training phases is unclear. So far, no systematic review has assessed fluctuations in TEE, energy intake, and/or body composition in endurance athletes across the training season. The purpose of this study was to (1) systematically analyze TEE, energy intake, and body...

Therapeutic alliance, social inclusion and infection control - Towards pandemic-adapted mental health care services in Switzerland

Dirk Richter, Charles Bonsack, Christian Burri, Walter Gekle, Urs Hepp, Wolfram Kawohl, Andres R. Schneeberger, Anastasia Theodoridou, Rafael Traber & Matthias Jäger
The Covid-19 pandemic has challenged the Swiss mental health care system. Many services were downsized or closed and admission to treatment and care institutions was restricted during lockdown. While these measures were necessary according to the general containment and mitigation strategies of federal and cantonal authorities, this situation has had negative consequences for care and treatment of service users. This paper asks to re-think key aspects of the Swiss mental health care system that have...

Brettsperrholz aus Schweizer Produktion

Werner Leibundgut
Mit dem Begriff ‹Massivholzbauweise› wird heute meistens die Brettsperrholzbauweise bzw. das Konstruieren von Gebäuden mit grossformatigen Holzelementen in Verbindung gebracht. Diese Bauweise feiert vor allem im angelsächsischen Raum mit Objekten von beeindruckendem Umfang grosse Erfolge. In der stark auf Rahmenbau ausgerichteten Schweiz ist sie noch wenig verbreitet. Jedoch ist die massive Holzbauweise auch hierzulande keineswegs erst eine Erfindung der Neuzeit, zeugen doch jahrhundertealte Blockbauten auch in der Schweiz von einer langen Massivholzbautradition.

Towards Verifying the Bitcoin-S Library

Ramon Boss, Kai Brünnler & Anna Doukmak
We try to verify properties of the Bitcoin-S library, a Scala implementation of parts of the Bitcoin protocol. We use the Stainless verifier which supports programs in a fragment of Scala called Pure Scala. Since Bitcoin-S is not written in this fragment, we extract the relevant code from it and rewrite it until we arrive at code that we successfully verify. In that process we find and fix two bugs in Bitcoin-S.

To Governor Luca Zaia, Veneto Region (Italy). Forest biodiversity, soil functions and human behaviour, a case study: the October 29, 2018 catastrophe in North-East Italian Alps

A strong wind severely damaged the forests of 473 Italian Alpine municipalities at the end of October 2018. The affected forest area covers 42,500 ha. The president of one of the damaged regions asked for help from the TESAF department of the University of Padua. 27 international scientists (listed: 24; anonymous: 3) responded to the appeal and collectively wrote this article. At first, we discussed the value of ramial chipped wood; then of leaving or...


Information on texture of steam‐cooked potato is of increased importance for consumers of fresh potatoes. As potato texture not only depends on genetic disposition but also on growth conditions, simple and reliable methods are needed to improve characterization of single potato lots. In the present study 65 potato lots were fractionized to 192 tuber samples according to their specific gravity and used for sensory evaluations. The aim was: (1) to further clarify the role of...

Enhanced Physics-Based Models for State Estimation of Li-Ion Batteries

Daniel Luder
Battery models and state estimation algorithms are a key components of todays advanced Battery Management Systems (BMS). Thereby, the battery models are used to estimate non-measurable states in the battery to ensure safety and availability while prolonging its life. This paper focuses on pseudo-2D physics-based battery models namely the Doyle-Fuller-Newman (DFN) model and Single Particle Model (SPM) that are capable to represent battery internal electrochemical states, that are vital for high precision simulation of the...

Combining deep learning method with optical coherence tomography for ablation lesion assessment

D Liang & A Haeberlin
The immediate effect of radiofrequency catheter ablation (RFA) on the tissue is not directly visualized. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is an imaging technique that uses light to capture histology-like images with a penetration depth of 1-3 mm in the cardiac tissue. There are two specific features of ablation lesions in the OCT images: the disappearance of birefringence artifacts in the lateral and sudden decrease of signal at the bottom (Figure panel A and D). These...

Elevational ground/air thermal gradients in the Swiss inner Alpine Valais

Armin Rist, Lotti Roth & Heinz Veit
The dependence of air temperature on elevation (i.e., its elevational gradient) in the mountains is well known. However, the elevational gradient of near-surface ground temperatures and derived thermal parameters is much less understood. In this study, we investigated how these parameters depend on elevation by one-year temperature measurements along a transect in the Valais Alps (Switzerland) between 700 and 2,600 m a.s.l. In addition, we studied the effect of differences in slope aspect (north/south) and...

Applying configurational theory to build a typology of ethnocentric consumers

Elisa Baumbach & Arch G. Woodside
Individuals showing high consumer ethnocentrism (CE) prefer domestic over foreign-made products and their preferences may contribute to barriers to international market entry. Therefore, how to identify such consumers is an important question. Shankarmahesh’s (2006) review reveals inconsistencies in the literature with regard to CE and its antecedents. To shed theoretical and empirical light on these inconsistencies, the purpose of this paper is to contribute two new perspectives on CE: first, a typology that classifies ethnocentric...
