Stators are already known which in each case comprise an annular stator stack having grooves which are open towards an axis of the stator and in which an electrical winding is provided which comprises a plurality of winding branches. The plurality of winding branches each have a plurality of parallel wires for reducing the so-called skin effect. The parallel wires are arranged in the grooves, wherein the winding branches in their configuration each form a plurality of turns of a coil which are each part of an electrical coil, wherein a turn of a coil is formed in each case by two sides of a turn, lying in different grooves, of one of the winding branches and by a turn side connector which connects the two sides of a turn to one another. In electrical windings having parallel wires, an unfavourable wire position and a resulting linking of different magnetic flows may lead to disadvantageous compensating or circular currents which produce additional copper losses in the electric motor. In the stator according to the invention the compensating or circular currents in the parallel wires are avoided or at least decreased. According to the invention, the parallel wires (Z) which are arranged in the same groove (2) are in each case provided in a common groove section (yf) of the respective channel (2) having a groove section height (Hf), wherein the groove section (yf) in each case comprises, arranged one above the other in the radial direction, layered regions (y1...yn), wherein in each case the parallel wires () which belong to the same side of a turn are arranged in the same layered region (y1...yn) of the groove section (yf).


Disclosed are a subscriber station (10) for a bus system, preferably a LIN bus system, and a method for adjusting the timing of a transmit signal for a bus system. The subscriber station comprises a first detection unit (131) for detecting a measure of the emission/radiation caused by switching processes taking place because a message is sent within the bus system, a second detection unit (132) for detecting the steepness of the edge of a message sent within the bus system, and an adjustment device (133) for adjusting the steepness and/or the shape of the edge of the message sent within the bus system on the basis of a result detected by the first detection unit (131) and a result detected by the second detection unit (132) in order to minimize interferences caused by switching processes taking place because a message is sent within the bus system and in order to meet the requirements of the bus system in respect of the timing of the message.

MYC rearrangements occur in 5% to 10% of diffuse large B-cell lymphomas (DLBCL) and confer an increased risk to cyclophosphamide, hydroxydaunorubicin, oncovin, and prednisone (CHOP) and rituximab (R)-CHOP treated patients. We investigated the prognostic relevance of MYC-, BCL2- and BCL6-rearrangements and protein expression in a prospective randomized trial. Paraffin-embedded tumor samples from 442 de novo DLBCL treated within the RICOVER study of the German High-Grade Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma Study Group (DSHNHL) were investigated using immunohistochemistry and fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) to detect protein expression and breaks of MYC, BCL2, and BCL6. Rearrangements of MYC, BCL2, and BCL6 were detected in 8.8%, 13.5%, and 28.7%, respectively. Protein overexpression of MYC (>40%) was encountered in 31.8% of tumors; 79.6% and 82.8% of tumors expressed BCL2 and BCL6, respectively. MYC translocations, MYChigh, BCL2high, and BCL6low protein expressions were associated with inferior survival. In multivariate Cox regression modeling, protein expression patterns of MYC, BCL2 and BCL6, and MYC rearrangements were predictive of outcome and provided prognostic information independent of the International Prognostic Index (IPI) for overall survival and event-free survival. A combined immunohistochemical or FISH/immunohistochemical score predicts outcome in DLBCL patients independent of the IPI and identifies a subset of 15% of patients with dismal prognosis in the high-risk IPI group following treatment with R-CHOP. Registered at http://www.cancer.gov/clinicaltrials: RICOVER trial of the DSHNHL is NCT 00052936.
