Interferon-gamma stimulation of human macrophages causes the synthesis and release of neopterin and its reduced form 7,8-dihydroneopterin (7,8-NP). The purpose of this cellular response is undetermined but in vitro experiments suggests 7,8-NP is an antioxidant. We have found 7,8-NP can protect monocyte-like U937 cells from oxidative damage. 7,8-NP inhibited(More)
Previous work on in-situ calibration of force platforms has focused primarily on behaviour under static loading conditions. The prototype described in this paper is a dynamic system, designed to approximate the loading profile generated during human gait. The design, construction and performance of an oscillating lead pendulum assembly is described;(More)
