Autoimmune-prone (NZB x NZW)F1 (B/W) mice fed three nearly isocaloric diets with varied fat content showed a marked difference in their spontaneous development of immune complex disease and their immune response. Those animals received the diets high in either unsaturated or saturated fats had more severe immune complex nephritis and died earlier than mice(More)
Reduction and alkylation of purified hepatitis-associated Australia antigen (hepatitis B antigen) resulted in a total loss of serologic activity. The reduced and alkylated protein formed a single band with a sedimentation coefficient of 31S on analytical ultracentrifugation, and no subunits were detected by Sephadex gel filtration. Although this preparation(More)
Multimedia content over broadband wireless technology has always been a challenge in video communication, as wireless networks are inevitably prone to error burst. In this work, we present an approach in data partition technique to achieve error resilience in Multiview Video Coding (MVC). Data partitioning (DP) is an efficient and important way to make an(More)
A total of 69 persons were investigated for assessment of cell-mediated and humoral immunity to hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg). Three groups, each consisting of 20 normal persons, 20HBsAg carriers, and 20 convalescent hepatitis B patients, were studied for HBsAg, anti-HBs, and leukocyte migration inhibition with purified HBsAg. Sequential sampling if(More)
Failure to react to coccidioidin (anergy) often occurs in patients with disseminated coccidioidomycosis. One possible reason may be desensitization by excessive amounts of antigen. This was studied experimentally by injection of soluble and hyphal antigens of Coccidioides immitis into coccidioidin- and tuberculin-sensitive guinea pigs. Guinea pigs(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate the protective effect of L-carnitine (L-CAR) in tamoxifen (TAM)-induced toxicity and antitumor activity. Adult female rats were randomly divided into four groups. Group I was served as control, groups II and III were treated with TAM (10 mg/kg, periorally) and L-CAR (300 mg/kg, intraperitoneally), respectively, while(More)
