Nitrosothiols (RS-NOs) are formed by interaction of nitric oxide (NO) with glutathione and may limit the detrimental effect of NO. Because NO generation is increased in airway inflammation, we have measured RS-NOs in exhaled breath condensate in patients with asthma, cystic fibrosis, or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). We also measured exhaled(More)
Measurement of high-Q 2 charged current cross sections in e − p deep inelastic scattering at HERA Abstract Cross sections for e − p charged current deep inelastic scattering have been measured at a centre-of-mass energy of 318 GeV with an integrated luminosity of 16.4 pb −1 using the ZEUS detector at HERA. Differential cross-sections dσ/dQ 2 , dσ/dx and(More)
Exclusive production of 0 and J== mesons in e + p collisions has been studied with the ZEUS detector in the kinematic range 0:25 < Q 2 < 50 GeV 2 , 20 < W < 167 GeV for the 0 data and 2 < Q 2 < 40 GeV 2 , 50 < W < 150 GeV for the J== data. Cross sections for exclusive 0 and J== production have been measured as a function of Q 2 , W and t. The spin-density(More)
Results of recent monitoring activities on potentially unstable areas of the NW volcano flank of La Fossa cone (Vulcano Island, Italy) are shown here. They are obtained by integration of data by aerial photogrammetry, terrestrial laser scanning (TLS) and GPS taken in the 1996–2011 time span. A comparison between multi-temporal models built from remote(More)
Using the ZEUS detector at HERA, we have studied the reaction e + p ! e + X for Q 2 > 5000 GeV 2 with a 20:1 pb ?1 data sample collected during the years 1994 to 1996. For Q 2 below 15000GeV 2 , the data are in good agreement with Standard Model expectations. For Q 2 > 35000 GeV 2 , two events are observed while 0:145 0:013 events are expected. A(More)
We study the impact of neutrino oscillations on the supernova neutrino signal in the Large Volume Detector (LVD). The number of expected events for a galactic supernova (D = 10 kpc) is calculated, assuming neutrino masses and mixing that explain solar and atmospheric neutrino results. The possibility to detect neutrinos in different channels makes LVD(More)
Measurement of proton-dissociative diffractive photoproduction of vector mesons at large momentum transfer at HERA Abstract Diffractive photoproduction of vector mesons, γp → V Y , where Y is a proton-dissociative system, has been measured in e + p interactions with the ZEUS detector at HERA using an integrated luminosity of 25 pb −1. The differential cross(More)
