Coalitions are collaborative networks of autonomous domains where resource sharing is achieved by the distribution of access permissions to coalition members based on negotiated resource-sharing agreements. The focus of our research is on dynamic coalitions, namely, coalitions where member domains may leave or new domains may join during the life of the(More)
The paper presents some possibilities of estimating the immunologic aggression in silicosis in a group of 68 patients divided into three subgroups according to the evolutive stage of disease. The results were compared with the data obtained in a control group of 35 clinically healthy subjects not subjected to respiratory noxae. Parameters such as the(More)
To ascertain the diagnostic and prognostic value of serum copper in silicosis, this trace element was determined in 68 patients (all males), aged varied between 20 and 60 years (mean age 44 +/- 2.3 years). The same determination was carried out in a control group of 35 healthy subjects. The patients were distributed into three subgroups according to the(More)
Cell-mediated immunity was estimated in a group of 68 patients divided into three subgroups according to the evolutive stage of disease. It was demonstrated that in silicosis there is a disturbance of immunity. The detection of E rosettes and of activated rosettes was carried out according to the classical method. The mean percentage of total T lymphocytes(More)
The authors verify whether in silicosis the accumulation of silicon dioxide (SiO2) particles in the lung can induce changes of the activated T lymphocytes in the peripheral blood. The lymphoblastic transformation of lymphocytes stimulated with phytohemagglutinin (PHA), concanavalin A (Con A), Mycobacterium tuberculosis (Mt) and purified protein derivative(More)
