Cytomegalovirus (CMV) is known to promote a more effector-oriented phenotype in the T-cell compartment, increasing with age. The aim of this study was to(More)
A device designed to measure the forces and moments transmitted through prostheses of persons with lower limb amputation is presented. The sensing unit design is an advancement over previous prosthesis force measurement devices in that it is very thin (19 mm) and lightweight (527.5 g, including signal-conditioning instrumentation). The disk-shaped(More)
We and others have previously described signatures of tolerance in kidney transplantation showing the differential expression of B cell-related genes and the relative expansions of B cell subsets. However, in all of these studies, the index group-namely, the tolerant recipients-were not receiving immunosuppression (IS) treatment, unlike the rest of the(More)
BACKGROUND The increase of live kidney donation (LKD) demands that we scrutinize its long-term consequences. Socialized medicine in Sweden has allowed us to survey long-term consequences of LKD with a high response rate. METHODS Between 1974 and 2008, 455 LKDs were performed; 28 donors were deceased and 14 had moved abroad at the time of the survey. Of(More)
