The short term Expo has been applied to both types of Expos in various locations since Since the Convention Relating to International Exhibitions came into force, the Bureau of International Expositions BIE has served as an international sanctioning body for international exhibitions.

This fair was followed by other national exhibitions in continental Europe and the United Kingdom. The Great Exhibitionas it is often called, was an idea of Prince AlbertQueen Victoria 's husband, and is usually considered to be the first international exhibition of manufactured products.

World expositions were platforms for state-of-the-art science and technology from around the world. LouisSan Franciscoand —34 Chicago were notable in this respect.

Their total surface area must not exceed 25 ha and organizers must build pavilions for the participating states, free of rent, charges, taxes and expenses. Only one Specialised Expo can be held between two World Expos.

Get started in minutes Learn how.Here, we examine the long-term effects of intensive glucose control on risk of ESKD and other outcomes. Research design and methods: Survivors, previously randomized to intensive or standard glucose control, were invited to participate in post-trial follow-up. ESKD, defined as the need for dialysis or kidney transplantation, or death due to kidney disease, was documented overall and by baseline CKD stage, along with hypoglycemic episodes, major cardiovascular events, and death from other causes.
In-trial HbA1c differences disappeared by the first post-trial visit. The in-trial reductions in the risk of ESKD 7 vs. Conclusions: Intensive glucose control was associated with a long-term reduction in ESKD, without evidence of any increased risk of cardiovascular events or death. These benefits were greater with preserved kidney function and with well-controlled blood pressure.
