The involvement of the immune system has been hypothesized in the pathogenesis of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). In this study a significantly higher level of TNF-alpha and its soluble receptors, TNF-R1 and TNF-R2, has been found in plasma of patients affected by the sporadic form of ALS compared to normal subjects. The genetic analysis of the… (More)
The shell problem and its asymptotic are investigated. A connection between the asymptotic behavior of the shell energy and real Interpolation Theory is established. Although only the Koiter shells have been considered, the same procedure can be used for other models, such as Naghdi's one, for example.
