Adjuvant research is being oriented to TLR-agonists, but complement activation has been relatively unexplored. In previous studies it was demonstrated that poly(methyl vinyl ether-co-maleic anhydride) nanoparticles (PVMA NPs) used as adjuvant differentially activate dendritic cells through toll like receptors (TLR) stimulation, however, a high dose of these(More)
The immunogenic potential of tetanus toxoid (TT) was compared when either adsorbed to aluminium hydroxide (TT-alum) or entrapped in microparticles consisting of poly(D,L-lactic-co-glycolic acid) (PLA:PGA, 55:45) derived polymers. Furthermore, the effect of administering the microparticles in an aqueous buffer or water-in-oil emulsion on the TT(More)
This paper presents a development and evaluation platform for a question answering (QA) system. It is a monolingual system, which takes as input Basque questions and searches for answers in a Basque document collection. Three components integrate the platform: the QA system, the lexical component and the evaluation environment. The QA system has been(More)
This work presents the migration process of a syntactic grammar of Basque from one formalism to another. Due to differences in the formalisms and the kind of grammars, it is not possible to make a direct translation. As a consequence, the construction of a new grammar by a linguist must start almost from scratch. For this reason we devised an experiment in(More)
