MDC

Metoprolol in Dilated Cardiomyopathy trial. A clinical trial that evaluated the additive effect of metoprolol on fatal and non-fatal cardiac events in patients with idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy.

Conclusion
Seven-year survival (80% vs 62%) and transplant-free survival (68% vs 51) were significantly higher in 127 metoprolol treated cases than in 127 controls.

That's where a reverse-mode riser card comes in handy.
Figure 4 shows a reverse-mode bridge on a riser card with PCI-X connectivity to the host and PCIe connectivity to the endpoint.
PCI Express (PCIe) riser cards allow this expansion by providing a method of mounting cards parallel to the system board, rather than the traditional vertical mount as seen in tower systems and full-height racks.
While most riser cards simply provide a mechanical repositioning of an existing I/O slot to allow an add-in card to be mounted parallel to the system board, what do you do if you need to connect a function that is not available in a card with a PCIe interface?
With yesterday's systems' I/O employing PCI and PCI-X, passive riser cards have been deployed with multiple PCI (or -X) slots, as PCI is a parallel multi-drop bus architecture.
Overcoming the space constraint requires active riser cards in PCIe systems.
These routing options represent a major break from the design constraints posed by rigid riser cards and flexible circuits in PCIe applications.
Flexible circuits offer a similar level of flexibility as cables, but both flex and riser cards contain much less copper overall than cables.
They are also narrow enough to fit all 2U rack mount systems without using riser cards. Quatech's serial Low Profile PCI line leverages the company's extensive PCI expertise to provide the same rich features found in their standard PCI boards, such as four-layer board design for improved signal integrity, shared interrupts, 16-byte FIFOs, and enhanced speeds of up to 921.6 kbps.
Smart Link V.92 modem chipsets are available in several different form factors, including: PCI and Riser Cards targeted at PC OEMs; and USB.
The gift sets come packed in sixes with self-displaying detachable riser cards. On the drawing board for next year are two more branded fragrances and possibly another ADF.
The unique modular construction supports twelve system configurations using three riser cards and three I/O module options in a cable-free assembly.
