Tumour necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-alpha) is one of the most prominent inflammatory mediators playing a central role in starting off the inflammatory reactions of the innate immune system. We identified a TNF-alpha-inhibitory activity in the saliva and salivary gland extract (SGE) from partially fed Ixodes ricinus ticks. Using mouse and human TNF-alpha(More)
We present experimental data of the flow of butane and isobutane vapors through porous Vycor glass membranes. The pressure driven flow of vapors near and far from saturation through membranes with pore diameters of 20 and 33 nm is investigated. The upstream pressures lie between the saturation pressure at the upstream temperature to approximately half that(More)
The impact ofIxodes ricinus salivary gland extract (SGE) on inflammatory changes in the skin and draining lymph nodes of mice, elicited by the infection with the important human pathogen,B. afzelii, was determined using flow cytometry. SGE injected together with spirochetes reduced the numbers of leukocytes and γδ-T lymphocytes in infected epidermis at(More)
