Cross-presentation of antigen by dendritic cells (DCs) to CD8(+) T cells is a fundamentally important mechanism in the defense against pathogens and tumors. Due to the lack of an appropriate lineage marker, cross-presenting DCs in the mouse are provisionally classified as "Batf3-IRF-8-Id2-dependent DCs" or as "CD8(+) DCs" in the spleen, and as(More)
This study presents a geometric model for segmentation of ultrasound images. A partial differential equation based flow is designed in order to achieve a maximum likelihood segmentation of the target in the scene. The flow is derived as the steepest descent of an energy functional taking into account the density probability distribution of the gray levels(More)
The role of matricellular proteins in bacterial containment and in the induction of pathogen-specific adaptive immune responses is unknown. We studied the function of the matricellular protein secreted protein, acidic and rich in cysteine (SPARC/osteonectin) in the dissemination of locally injected Salmonella typhimurium and in the subsequent immune(More)
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the state-of-the-art of antimicrobial stewardship programmes (ASPs) in Emilia-Romagna, Italy. A self-compiled, 23-question, multiple-choice questionnaire, divided into eight sections, focusing on Public Health Trust (PHT) characteristics, multidisciplinary team, formulary restrictions, education, guidelines and(More)
