Fertility and Pregnancy: Common Concerns of the Aging Cystic Fibrosis Population
ABSTRACT Due to dramatically improved survival, cystic fibrosis (CF) is now considered a chronic disease of adults. Many men and women who have CF are interested in starting families and have questions regarding fertility and pregnancy, making discussion of these issues important in routine CF care. This article addresses key issues of fertility in men and women who have CF and discusses pregnancy, including maternal and fetal outcomes, highlighting advances over the last decade.

Conference Paper: Graph MA product systems[Show abstract] [Hide abstract]
ABSTRACT: In this paper, we introduce the notion of graph MA (GMA) product which constitutes a formal framework for the analysis of complex systems defined on graphs. The GMA product is a generalization of the multi-agent (MA) product which was introduced and developed previously. This paper contains results comparing the descriptive power of the MA product, the GMA product and the simultaneous product. It is shown that a necessary and sufficient condition given by I. Romanovski et al. (2002) for the existence of the MA supervisors can be directly applied in order to get a GMA supervisor. Several examples are given to motivate the notion of a GMA product and to illustrate the results of the paper.American Control Conference, 2003. Proceedings of the 2003; 07/2003
