Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV) causes significant disease in the elderly, in part, because immunosenescence impairs protective immune responses to infection in this population. Despite previous and current efforts, there is no RSV vaccine currently licensed in infants or elderly adults. Adjuvanted RSV subunit vaccines have the potential to boost waning(More)
In a recent study, the ideas of Procrustes analysis were introduced to the study of tooth shape for teeth represented as configurations of 'landmarks' from digital images. This study aimed to establish how well the method could be expected to perform (in its standard form) when used on surfaces from a variety of tooth types and, in particular, how much(More)
BACKGROUND Illness associated with Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV) remains an unmet medical need in both full-term infants and older adults. The fusion glycoprotein (F) of RSV, which plays a key role in RSV infection and is a target of neutralizing antibodies, is an attractive vaccine target for inducing RSV-specific immunity. METHODOLOGY AND PRINCIPAL(More)
Accurate quantification of variation in tooth shape is important in studies of dental development, which typically have involved measuring distances between subjectively identified landmarks, key points of correspondence on teeth. An established statistical framework now exists for the analysis of shape when objects are represented as configurations of(More)
Many practical experiments on mixtures (where the components sum to one) include additional lower or upper bounds on components, or on linear combinations of them. Usually theory cannot be used to obtain a good design, and algorithmic methods are necessary. Some of the available methods are discussed. Their performance is evaluated on some examples, and the(More)
