TH1 cytokine secretion was examined in response to synthetic peptides of the 85A component of the major secreted, fibronectin-binding antigen 85 complex from Mycobacterium tuberculosis in seven different mouse strains infected with live M. bovis BCG. Twenty-eight overlapping 20-mer peptides covering the complete mature 295-amino-acid (AA) protein were(More)
We determined the relative efficacy of two bronchodilator aerosol delivery methods in 18 intubated mechanically ventilated patients with airways obstruction. Two treatment arms, consisting of albuterol 270 micrograms (three puffs) from a metered dose inhaler and albuterol 2.5 mg from a saline solution nebulized with an updraft inhaler, were compared in a(More)
We report a new way to strongly couple graphene to a superconductor. The graphene monolayer has been grown directly on top of a superconducting Re(0001) thin film and characterized by scanning tunneling microscopy and spectroscopy. We observed a moiré pattern due to the mismatch between Re and graphene lattice parameters that we have simulated with ab(More)
We have studied bilayers and trilayers of FePd thin-film alloys, where each of the constituting layers has a different magnetic anisotropy, as controlled by the growth conditions. The competition between the magneto-crystalline anisotropy and the shape anisotropy in these films leads to the formation of stripe domains with a period of ϳ100 nm, which has(More)
This paper describes a versatile, light weight, and portable chamber dedicated to the transfer of electrodes from ultra-high vacuum (UHV) to atmospheric pressure and the liquid phase. This chamber can be connected to a liquid-phase reaction cell to perform electrochemical measurements and transfer back the electrode to the UHV environment. The experimental(More)
Reciprocal changes of the ST segment in the acute phase of inferior myocardial infarction are common but their significance remain controversial. We studied this problem by comparing the ECG on admission of 83 patients with acute inferior myocardial infarction, with the clinical outcome and haemodynamic and angiographic data obtained on average 3 weeks(More)
The strain field of individual epitaxial sub-micrometric copper islands is studied using coherent x-ray diffraction and finite element modelling. The strain inhomogeneity in each island is so large that the characteristic features of the island shape tend to disappear in the diffraction pattern, which is dominated by strain effects. The model confirms the(More)
We report the first observation of a weak ferromagnetic state of Cr in Cr/Ru(0001) superlattices, based on magnetic hysteresis and corroborated by x-ray magnetic circular dichroism at the CrL(2,3) edges. In situ reflection high-energy electron diffraction, x-ray diffraction, and Cr K-edge polarized x-ray absorption investigations have shown that the Cr(More)
