Hybridomas the produce anti-DNA autoantibodies were prepared from spleen cells of unimmunized MRL/1 mice, a strain that spontaneously develops severe systemic lupus erythematous (SLE). Reactivities of these monoclonal antibodies with a wide range of polynucleotides prompted tests of their reactions with phospholipids which, like polynucleotides, contain(More)
Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) affect millions of people each year. Research investigating repeated or serial damage in the form of lesions indicates that behavioral deficits are reduced in animals given sequential lesions separated by a sufficient period of recovery. In the lesion literature, this phenomenon is known as the serial lesion effect (SLE).(More)
The synthesis of single-wall carbon nanotubes of desired diameters and chiralities is critical to the design of nanoscale electronic devices with desired properties. The existing methods are based on self-assembly, therefore lacking control over the diameters and chiralities. The present work reports a direct route for rolling graphene. Specifically, we(More)
BACKGROUND Little is known about effective treatment for personality-disordered (PD) offenders. We aimed to obtain the perspective of service users and staff on: (a) the experience of receiving treatment; and (b) the experience of delivering treatment, within new forensic services for PD offenders. MATERIAL Thematic analysis was applied to qualitative(More)
PURPOSE The effectiveness of embryonic stem cell (eSC) therapy has been explored in many models of neurological disease and several research groups have shown that eSC treatment leads to improved outcomes in pre-clinical models of traumatic brain injury (TBI). Though functional recovery occurs, few surviving eSCs appear to develop neuronal characteristics;(More)
a r t i c l e i n f o Conical carbon nanotubes (CCNTs) with unique structural characteristics arising from their tapered morphologies compared to uniform diameter carbon nanotubes, have been shown to exhibit enhanced field emission properties and support high current densities. Specifically, several CCNT arrays with different morphological characteristics(More)
Personality-disordered offenders are difficult individuals to manage, and knowledge about effective treatment is sparse. In the UK, novel forensic psychiatric services were recently established for the treatment of offenders with personality disorder. In this paper we report the clinical and economic findings from a 2-year follow-up of a cohort of service(More)
