BACKGROUND The continued presence of a primate antibody-mediated response to cells and organs from alpha1,3-galactosyltransferase gene-knockout (GTKO) pigs indicates that there may be antigens other than Gal alpha 1,3Gal (alpha Gal) against which primates have xenoreactive antibodies. Human and baboon sera were tested for reactivity against a panel of(More)
Lactobacillus johnsonii (Ljo) N6.2 has been shown to mitigate the development of type 1 diabetes when administered to diabetes-prone rats. The specific mechanisms underlying this observed response remain under investigation. The objective of this study was to assess the effect of Ljo N6.2 on mucosal inflammatory response using differentiated Caco-2(More)
Crucial to the commercial exploitation of any service combining UMTS and DVB-T is the availability of standardized API’s adapted to the hybrid UMTS and DVB-T network and to the technical limitations of mobile/portable terminals. This paper describes work carried out in the European Commission Framework Program 5 (FP5) project CONFLUENT to demonstrate the(More)
OBJECTIVE Establishing an effective humoral immunity is an important host defense mechanism in intestinal mucosa. T follicular helper (Tfh) cells are a spectrum of CXCR5 expressing T helper cells that induce antigen-specific B cell differentiation. Because the differentiation of T helper cells is largely regulated by innate immunity, we addressed whether(More)
