BACKGROUND Allergic reactions to walnut can be life-threatening. Although IgE epitopes of walnut have been studied, CD4(+) T cell-specific epitopes for walnut remain uncharacterized. In particular, the relationship of both phenotype and frequency of walnut-specific T cells to the disease have not been examined. OBJECTIVES We sought to provide a thorough(More)
Virtual agents are used in a number of different outcomebased contexts such as physical and mental health, skillbased training, as well as classroom learning and pedagogy. Virtual agents in such applications are largely designed so that they project positive attitude and feedback towards the human participant. Human-human interactions, however, are(More)
This paper develops a method for allocating a security budget to a water supply network so as to maximize the network’s resilience to physical attack. The method integrates max-min linear programming, hydraulic simulation, and genetic algorithms for constraint generation. The objective is to find a security allocation that maximizes an attacker’s marginal(More)
While applications of virtual agents in training and pedagogy have largely concentrated on positive valenced environments and interactions, human-human interactions certainly also involve a fair share of negativity that is worth exploring in virtual environments. Further, in natural human interaction as well as in virtual spaces, physical actions arguably(More)
On behalf of the Institute of Food Technologists, the Editors of JFS, JFSE, and CRFSFS extend their deepest gratitude to the following manuscript reviewers for their volunteer efforts to maintain the professional standards of our journals in 2015. We rely on reviewers’ and editors’ dedicated expertise to maintain the scientific integrity of IFT’s(More)
The gastrointestinal tract has an abundant mucosal immune system to develop and maintain oral tolerance. The oral route of administration takes advantage of the unique set of immune cells and pathways involved in the induction of oral tolerance. Food allergy results from a loss of oral tolerance toward ingested antigens. Oral immunotherapy is thought to(More)
Allergen-specific type 2 helper T (TH2) cells play a central role in initiating and orchestrating the allergic and asthmatic inflammatory response pathways. One major factor limiting the use of such atopic disease-causing T cells as both therapeutic targets and clinically useful biomarkers is the lack of an accepted methodology to identify and differentiate(More)
