Using three-colour flow cytometry, we have measured intracellular IL-2, interferon-gamma (IFN-gamma) and tumour necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-alpha) induced in human CD4+ and CD8+ T cells from normal donors and patients with common variable immunodeficiency (CVID). Since a new range of directly FITC-conjugated anti-cytokine antibodies was used, conditions were(More)
SUMMARY We present a massively parallel stochastic simulation algorithm (SSA) for reaction-diffusion systems implemented on Graphics Processing Units (GPUs). These are designated chips optimized to process a high number of floating point operations in parallel, rendering them well-suited for a range of scientific high-performance computations. Newer GPU(More)
Computer understanding of visual languages in pen-based environments requires a combination of lexical analysis in which the basic tokens are recognized from hand-drawn gestures and syntax analysis in which the structure is recognized. Typically, lexical analysis relies on statistical methods while syntax analysis utilizes grammars. The two stages are not(More)
We have investigated the antigenic modulation induced by a number of antibody fragments and derivatives directed against the idiotype of the surface Ig of the L2C guinea pig B lymphoblastic leukemia, and studied the effects upon such modulation of the simultaneous presence of cells expressing Fc gamma receptors (FcR). In vitro studies confirmed previous(More)
The infusion of anti-idiotypic antibody in patients with lymphoma has proved a relatively innocuous procedure, but in general had yielded only partial, short-lived remissions of disease. A major problem is that xenogeneic antibody is simply not well-fitted to destroying mammalian cells: complement and cellular effectors (K cells and phagocytes) are not(More)
