Indoleamine 2,3 dioxygenase (IDO) is a potent immunomodulatory enzyme that has recently attracted significant attention for its potential application as an inducer of immunotolerance in transplantation. We have previously demonstrated that a collagen matrix populated with IDO-expressing fibroblasts can be applied successfully in suppressing islet allogeneic(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to determine the relative cost reductions within different staffing models for continuous video-electroencephalography (cvEEG) service by introducing a template system for 10/20 lead application. METHODS We compared six staffing models using decision tree modeling based on historical service line utilization data from(More)
This thesis describes tracking objects with low-level electric fields. A physical model is presented that describes the important interactions and the required mathematical inversions. Sophisticated hardware used to perform the measurements is described in detail. Finally, a discussion of the myriad applications for electric field sensing is described. The(More)
Upon release from keratinocytes, 14-3-3 sigma (also known as stratifin) acts on the dermal fibroblast and modulates its production of extracellular matrix proteins. Subsequent to the recent identification as a receptor responsible for stratifin-mediated matrix turnover in dermal fibroblasts, aminopeptidase N has been implicated in the regulation of(More)
