In previous experimental animal studies it has been demonstrated that antibody depletion is not followed by increased antibody synthesis. To assess whether these results are conferrable to antibody-depleted humans, we measured free light chains (flcs) as markers of current antibody synthesis in 8 patients treated with immunoadsorption (IA) therapy.

Patients with Down syndrome (human trisomy 21) develop neuropathological and cholinergic functional defects characteristic of Alzheimer's disease, which has been attributed to the location of the Alzheimer beta-amyloid precursor protein on chromosome 21. Due to the partial genetic homology between mouse chromosome 16 and human chromosome 21, murine trisomy(More)

Measurements are reported on the fluorescence of air as a function of depth in electromagnetic showers initiated by bunches of 28.5 GeV electrons. The light yield is compared with the expected and observed depth profiles of ionization in the showers. It validates the use of atmospheric fluorescence profiles in measuring ultra high energy cosmic rays.
