1920 males and females of Glossina palpalis gambiensis were fed 3 times on a Zebu treated with Flumethrin Pour-on. This resulted in a significant increase of the mortality and abortion rate of the flies. The fly-specific effects of Flumethrin Pour-on were time-dependent: Clear effects on the performance of the flies were observed during the first 20 days(More)
XX cells from XX/XY hemopoietic chimeras do not express male determinants in a way to render them either stimulators or targets for male-specific cytotoxic lymphocytes. XX- but not XY-responder T cells from chimeras can be activated to lyse allogeneic male target cells; T cells from normal XX mice depleted of alloreactive T cells, however, cannot be(More)
Cytotoxic T lymphocyte (CTL) responses were obtained in vitro to cells coupled with several different haptens. The degree of lysis of target cells was dependent on the amount of hapten coupled to stimulator and target cells. Spleen cells from normal mice responded to high-hapten density cells but not to low-hapten density cells. However, spleen cells from(More)
Following the demonstration that hybrids between normal B-lymphocytes and myeloma cell lines continue to secrete antibodies with the same specificity as those produced by the parental B-cells, many groups have tried to use this approach to obtain cell lines expressing T-lymphocyte functions by crossing thymoma lines not expressing any measurable activity(More)
Various procedures were used to derive continuously growing cytotoxic T lymphocyte (CTL) clones from a primary culture containing responder cells from immunized mice and 3-(p-sulfophenyldiazo)-4-hydroxylphenyl acetic acid (SP)- or fluorescein isothiocyanate (FL)-coupled stimulator cells. It seems likely that CTL have to undergo some change, possibly(More)
The authors introduce poly(ethylene glycol) (PEG) based macromonomers containing acid-labile ketal moieties as well as terminal methacrylate units that are amenable to radical polymerization. The synthesis of PEGs of different molecular weights (ranging from 2000 to 13 000 g mol-1 with polydispersities <1.15) with a central ketal unit (PEG-ketal-diol) and(More)
The pathogenesis and pathology of African animal trypanosomosis (AAT) in Baoulé, N'Dama/Baoulé-cross-bred and Zebu cattle was studied from 1987 to 1991 in a series of experiments conducted under natural and artificial conditions of challenge at the Centre de Recherches sur les Trypanosomoses Animales (CRTA) in Burkina Faso. This first paper reports on the(More)
The number of patients suffering from allergic asthma and rhino-conjunctivitis has increased dramatically within the last decades. Allergen-specific immunotherapy (AIT) is the only available cause-oriented therapy so far. AIT reduces symptoms, but has also a disease modifying effect. Disadvantages are a long-lasting procedure, and in a few cases potential(More)
