Initiation, growth, recurrence, and metastasis of head and neck squamous cell carcinomas (HNSCC) have been related to the behavior of cancer stem cells (CSC) that can be identified by their aldehyde-dehydrogenase-isoform-1 (ALDH1) activity. We quantified and enriched ALDH1(+) cells within HNSCC cell lines and subsequently characterized their phenotypical… (More)
Participation of people is the most important factor in providing high quality of service in mobile sensing applications. In this paper we study coupons as incentives in order to stimulate users participation, especially in applications that rely on real-time data. We argue that coupons do not only function as incentives to increase user participation , but… (More)

BACKGROUND p16INK4a is a tumor suppressor protein which is induced in cells upon the interaction of high-risk HPV E7 with the retinoblastoma protein by a positive feedback loop, but cannot exert its suppressing effect. Previous reports suggested that p16INK4a immunostaining allows precise identification of even small CIN or cervical cancer lesions in… (More)
