THE STAR FORMATION RATE IN THE REIONIZATION ERA AS INDICATED BY GAMMA-RAY BURSTS
High-redshift gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) offer an extraordinary opportunity to study aspects of the early universe, including the cosmic star formation rate (SFR). Motivated by the two recent highest-zExpand

Discovery of the Dust-Enshrouded Progenitor of SN 2008S with Spitzer
We report the discovery of the progenitor of the recent Type IIn SN 2008S in the nearby galaxy NGC 6946. Surprisingly, it was not found in deep, preexplosion optical images of its host galaxy takenExpand

Direct X-ray Constraints on Sterile Neutrino Warm Dark Matter
Warm dark matter (WDM) might more easily account for small scale clustering measurements than the heavier particles typically invoked incold dark matter (�CDM) cosmologies. In this paper, we considerExpand

The Cosmic Star Formation Rate from the Faintest Galaxies in the Unobservable Universe
Observations of high-z galaxies and gamma-ray bursts now allow for empirical studies during reionization. However, even deep surveys see only the brightest galaxies at any epoch and must extrapolateExpand

Role of Adipokines and Hormones of Obesity in Childhood Asthma
Purpose The aim of this study was to evaluate serum levels of leptin, ghrelin, and adiponectin in obese and non-obese children with asthma and in healthy non-asthmatic children, and analyze theirExpand

Neutrino Constraints on the Dark Matter Total Annihilation Cross Section
In the indirect detection of dark matter through its annihilation products, the signals depend on the square of the dark matter density, making precise knowledge of the distribution of dark matter inExpand

Determining the escape fraction of ionizing photons during reionization with the GRB-derived star formation rate
The fraction of ionizing photons that escape their host galaxies and so are able to ionize hydrogen in the inter-galactic medium (IGM) is a critical parameter in the analyses of the reionization eraExpand

Increased expression of angiogenic markers in patients with seasonal allergic rhinitis.
BACKGROUND Increased vascularity due to neo-angiogenesis is an essential part of airway remodelling. Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), CD34 and von Willebrand's factor (FvW) are knownExpand
