Various models of HIV infection and evolution have been considered in the literature. This paper considers a variant of the Wodarz and Nowak mathematical model, adding "aggressiveness" as a new state variable in order to quantify the strength of the virus and its response to drugs. Although the model proposed is relatively simple, simulation results suggest(More)
There is a great deal of interest in the understanding of possible age-related changes in Mesenchymal Stem Cells in view of their use for regenerative medicine applications. Given to the outmost standing of periosteum in bone biology and to probe data for a cell-based therapy promoting graft osseointegration in the elderly, we tried to identify specific(More)
Idiopathic pulmonary hemosiderosis (IPH) is a rare cause of alveolar hemorrhage in children but should be considered in children with anemia of unknown origin who develop respiratory complications. It is commonly characterized by the triad of recurrent hemoptysis, diffuse parenchymal infiltrates, and iron-deficiency anemia. Pathogenesis is unclear and(More)
The biochemistry of a system made up of three kinds of cell is virtually impossible to work out without the use of in silico models. Here, we deal with homeostatic balance phenomena from a metabolic point of view and we present a new computational model merging three single-cell models, already available from our research group: the first model reproduced(More)
