Physically Unclonable Function (PUF) is a security primitive to address hardware security issues such as chip authentication, Intellectual Property (IP) protection etc. Conventional CMOS PUFs are built on delay (inverter chains, scan chains etc.) or memory structures (like SRAM). In this paper, we propose a novel PUF which works on the principles of(More)
BACKGROUND Recent evidence indicates that T cells primed via the indirect pathway of allorecognition play an important role in allograft rejection, although the effector mechanisms remain unknown. The purpose of this study was to characterize and study the in vivo function of self-restricted MHC allopeptide-specific T-cell clones generated from animals(More)
THE DISCOVERY of the presence of previously unsuspected microchimerism in successful long-term liver and kidney transplant recipients prompted us to postulate that these cells are essential for graft acceptance and the induction of donor-specific hyporeactivity.t-3 This observation provided the basis for the initiation of a new therapeutic strategy which(More)
'"I IE HAVE previo~y documented the long-term perV V sistence of donor cell chimerism after successful organ transplantation (Tx) and have postulated that it plays a seminal role in allograft acceptance and in the induction and perpetration of donor-specific tolerance.1•2 To further enhance the salutary effects of chimerism we have augmented this(More)
Low molecular weight hyaluronate (LMW-HA) blocks interactions between T lymphocyte CD44 and hyaluronate (HA), a heteropolysaccharide that is expressed on the surface of endothelial cells and ubiquitously in the extracellular matrix. This study was undertaken to assess the ability of LMW-HA to modify the course of experimental acute renal allograft(More)
The influence of granulocyte-macrophage colony-stimulating factor (GM-CSF) and the recently identified hematopoietic stem-progenitor cell mobilizing factor flt3 ligand (FL) on donor leukocyte microchimerism in noncytodepleted recipients of allogeneic bone marrow (BM) was compared. B10 mice (H2b) given 50x10(6) allogeneic (B10.BR [H2k]) BM cells also(More)
D ESPITE its attended complications. immunosuppression for graft acceptance and the impending threat of chronic rejection are two of the many overwhelming factors that have necessitated the implementation of strategies aimed at inducing donor-specific tolerance (OST). With the postulation that persistence of donor cell chimerism after organ transplantation(More)
Non-volatile memories are gaining significant attention for embedded cache application due to their low standby power and excellent retention. Domain wall memory (DWM) is one possible candidate due to its ability to store multiple bits per cell in order to break the density barrier. Additionally, it provides low standby power, fast access time, good(More)
