The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effects of a crude Trypanosoma cruzi antigen (TCA) and its partially purified subfractions TCF1, TCF2 on peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC) of normal donors and chagasic patients. TCFI and TCF2 stimulated cells from normal donors and chagasic patients in association with a significant production of(More)
The Eastern Carpathians contain many mineral water springs that feed famous Romanian health resorts such as Borsec, Biborteni and Vatra Dornei. These waters have been used for their different therapeutic effects. In this work, mineral and spring waters from these Romanian regions were investigated by means of chemical and isotopic (deltaD and delta(18)O)(More)
Human Chagas' disease, caused by the protozoan Trypanosoma cruzi, is associated with pathological processes whose mechanisms are not known. To address this question, T cell lines were developed from chronic chagasic patients peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC) and cloned. These T cell clones (TCC) were analyzed phenotypically with monoclonal(More)
The new design incorporates the negative ion source and the mass analyzer, both constructed from cylindrical electrodes. The ion source is formed by three gridded cylindrical electrodes: a pulsed grid, the intermediate grid and the final accelerating grid. During a first time lapse, the electrons penetrate through the pulsed grid into the retarding field(More)
The problem of the ion separation/detection has applications in many fields, like: nuclear technology, detection of contraband and explosives, security and military domain. In weak electric fields, the ratio (K) of the ion speed (v) over electric field strengths (E) is typical for each ion with the given mass (m) and electrical charge (e). This ratio, known(More)
