A diagnostic assay to differentiate antibodies induced by foot-and-mouth disease virus (FMDV) infection from those induced by vaccination was developed. The test is an indirect-trapping ELISA which uses a monoclonal antibody to trap the non-structural 3ABC-FMDV polypeptide expressed in E. coli. Experimental and field sera from naive, vaccinated and infected(More)
10 This paper addresses the capital budgeting problem under uncertainty. In particular, we propose a multi-stage stochastic programming model aimed at selecting and managing a project portfolio. The dynamic uncertain evolution of each project value is modelled by a scenario tree over the planning horizon. The model allows the decision maker to revise(More)
The effects of extracts, partially purified fractions and four flavonol glycosides 1-4 from Aristeguietia discolor were investigated on the naloxone-precipitated withdrawal contraction of the acute morphine dependent guinea-pig ileum in vitro. After a 4 min in vitro exposure to morphine a strong contraction of guinea-pig isolated ileum was observed after(More)
Gastroresistant microparticles for oral administration of hesperidin (Hd) were produced by spray-drying using cellulose acetate phthalate (CAP) as enteric polymer in different polymer/Hd weight ratio (1:1, 3:1, and 5:1), and a series of enhancers of the dissolution rate, such as sodium carboxymethylcellulose crosslinked (CMC), sodium dodecylbenzene(More)
Human activities have altered the biogeochemical cycle of mercury (Hg) since precolonial times, and anthropogenic activities will continue to perturb the natural cycle of Hg. Current estimates suggest the atmospheric burden is three to five times greater than precolonial times. Hg in the upper ocean is estimated to have doubled over the same period. The(More)
Poplar mosaic virus (PopMV) is widespread in all countries where poplar is grown, and causes severe economic losses in terms of quantity and quality of wood production. Control is based on indexing, aimed at the production of healthy propagation material. The currently used diagnostic method is double antibody sandwich (DAS) ELISA with polyclonal(More)
The features of a short-term prediction of a stock price using a multi-layer perceptron in a moving simulation application mode are considered in this paper. The input data for the short-term prediction mode are analyzed. The architecture of the predicting model is developed. The simulation modeling results show a high accuracy of the prediction on the(More)
