OBJECTIVES Atherosclerosis is an inflammatory disease of the arterial wall that leads to myocardial infarction and stroke. Regulatory T cells (Tregs) and IL-10 exert significant anti-atherogenic effects in experimental models of atherosclerosis by modulating vascular inflammation. We have previously shown that Mycobacterium bovis BCG killed by extended(More)
A set D ⊆ V (G) is a total dominating set of G if for every vertex v ∈ V (G) there exists a vertex u ∈ D such that u and v are adjacent. A total dominating set of G of minimum cardinality is called a γt(G)set. For each vertex v ∈ V (G), we define the total domination value of v, TDV (v), to be the number of γt(G)-sets to which v belongs. This definition(More)
Let G1 and G2 be disjoint copies of a graph G, and let f : V (G1) → V (G2) be a function. Then a functigraph C(G, f) = (V,E) has the vertex set V = V (G1) ∪ V (G2) and the edge set E = E(G1) ∪ E(G2) ∪ {uv | u ∈ V (G1), v ∈ V (G2), v = f(u)}. A functigraph is a generalization of a permutation graph (also known as a generalized prism) in the sense of(More)
The metric dimension dim(G) of a graph G is the minimum number of vertices such that every vertex of G is uniquely determined by its vector of distances to the chosen vertices. The zero forcing number Z(G) of a graph G is the minimum cardinality of a set S of black vertices (whereas vertices in V (G)\S are colored white) such that V (G) is converted(More)
The activity of SanOrg123781A, a new synthetic antithrombotic drug inhibiting both factor Xa and thrombin through antithrombin (AT), was compared to that of unfractionated heparin (UFH) and of the synthetic pentasaccharide (fondaparinux, SP) in an ex vivo arterial thrombosis model in the pig. Six groups of four pigs were administered intravenously with(More)
