The purpose was to determine whether a strong decrease in apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) within epidermoid cysts (ECs) is actually responsible for their bright signal intensity on diffusion-weighted (DW) trace images. We studied six patients with surgically proven ECs in whom ADC calculation from T2-weighted DW-EPI-SE data were performed within the(More)
BACKGROUND This phase I/II partially blinded, randomized, dose-ranging study assessed the safety and immunogenicity of a novel human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) vaccine candidate consisting of a recombinant fusion protein (F4) containing 4 HIV-1 clade B antigens (Gag p24, Pol reverse transcriptase, Nef, and Gag p17) adjuvanted with AS01 in(More)
The nucleotide sequence was determined for the fusion (F) protein-coding mRNA of the bovine respiratory syncytial virus (strain RB 94) and the amino acid sequence of the F protein was deduced for comparison with the sequence of human respiratory syncytial virus subtypes A and B (RSS-2 and 18537 strains). The human and bovine RS virus F proteins (excluding(More)
BACKGROUND Combination vaccines improve coverage, compliance and effectively introduce new antigens to mass vaccination programmes. This was a phase III, observer-blind, randomized study of GSK Biologicals diphtheria-tetanus-whole cell pertussis vaccine combined with hepatitis B and Haemophilus influenzae type b vaccines, containing a reduced amount of(More)
BACKGROUND Diphtheria-tetanus-whole-cell pertussis (DTPw)-based combination vaccines are an attractive option to rapidly achieve high coverage and protection against other important pathogens, such as hepatitis B virus (HBV) and Haemophilus influenzae type B (Hib). To ensure adequate antigen supply, GlaxoSmithKline Biologicals has introduced a new DTPw(More)
BACKGROUND Sequential prime-boost or co-administration of HIV vaccine candidates based on an adjuvanted clade B p24, RT, Nef, p17 fusion protein (F4/AS01) plus a non-replicating adenovirus 35 expressing clade A Gag, RT, Int and Nef (Ad35-GRIN) may lead to a unique immune profile, inducing both strong T-cell and antibody responses. METHODS In a phase 1,(More)
Gastropod is a fast radiative transfer code designed to meet the requirements of a day one radiative transfer operator for AIRS (and eventually IASI) for use in variational data assimilation systems. This paper gives an overview of the model methodology adopted, and summarises the results from line-by-line radiative transfer model validation of the(More)
