The cleavage of C3 is a critical step for complement (C) activation in the classical and alternative pathways. This reaction is controlled by the regulators of C activation protein family. Membrane cofactor protein (MCP) is a cofactor for the factor I-mediated inactivation of C3b and C4b. As a widely distributed membrane protein, MCP may protect host cells(More)
We evaluated the pre-clinical efficacy of a novel intraperitoneal (i.p.) sustained-release paclitaxel formulation (PTX(ePC)) using bioluminescent imaging (BLI) in the treatment of ovarian cancer. Human ovarian carcinoma cells stably expressing the firefly luciferase gene (SKOV3(Luc)) were injected i.p. into SCID mice. Tumour growth was evaluated during(More)
This paper synthesises knowledge about information technologies (ITs) by outlining their functionalities and features, and reflecting on the strategic and operational opportunities and challenges they present to a retail supply chain (SC). The research is developed from empirical case studies, and literature on IT development and applications. It is(More)
