The heterogeneity of common variable immunodeficiency (CVID) calls for a classification addressing pathogenic mechanisms as well as clinical relevance. This European multicenter trial was initiated to develop a consensus of 2 existing classification schemes based on flowcytometric B-cell phenotyping and the clinical course. The clinical evaluation of 303(More)
Volume mixing and isotope ratios secured with repeated atmospheric measurements taken with the Sample Analysis at Mars instrument suite on the Curiosity rover are: carbon dioxide (CO2), 0.960(±0.007); argon-40 ((40)Ar), 0.0193(±0.0001); nitrogen (N2), 0.0189(±0.0003); oxygen, 1.45(±0.09) × 10(-3); carbon monoxide, < 1.0 × 10(-3); and (40)Ar/(36)Ar,(More)
With the advent of digital television, more specifically interactive television, the emergence and adoption of the JavaTM DVB-MHP standards here in Australia provides developers with a range of new technologies and issues. An appreciation of broadcast technologies, in particular MPEG-2 and the Object Carousel are required to understand the facilities and(More)
Plant parasitic nematodes cause significant damage to crops on a worldwide scale. These nematodes are often soil dwelling but rely on plants for food and to sustain them during reproduction. Complex interactions occur between plants and nematodes during the nematode life cycle with plant roots developing specialized feeding structures through which(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIMS Lumiracoxib is a structurally novel, acidic selective inhibitor of cyclooxygenase (COX)-2. We coordinated existing methodologies in a single study to evaluate potency, selectivity, and effect on the human gastrointestinal tract. METHODS Twenty four healthy subjects (aged 18-45 years, 12 female) received high dose lumiracoxib (800 mg(More)
One particular aspect of the literature on preferences for female body shapes has focused on the purported universality of preferences for a low waist-to-hip ratio (WHR), despite substantial evidence of cross-cultural variability in such preferences. In the present study, we examined the effects of manipulating women's profile WHR, breast size, and(More)
PURPOSE Evaluate potential neurocognitive effects of adjunctive levetiracetam in children with inadequately controlled partial-onset seizures (POS). METHODS Randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, noninferiority safety study. Children (4-16 years; IQ > or =65) with > or =1 POS during 4 weeks before screening despite taking 1-2 antiepileptic drugs(More)
Reniform nematode is a semi-endoparasitic nematode species causing significant yield loss in numerous crops, including cotton (Gossypium hirsutum L.). An RNA-sequencing analysis was conducted to measure transcript abundance in reniform nematode susceptible (DP90 & SG747), resistant (BARBREN-713), and hypersensitive (LONREN-1) genotypes of cotton (Gossypium(More)
BACKGROUND US combat operations in Iraq and Afghanistan have resulted in a greater proportion of service members with head and neck wounds caused by explosions compared with that of previous wars. Although penetrating traumatic brain injury (TBI) is frequently associated with these wounds, the epidemiology of penetrating TBI from these conflicts has not(More)
Bursaphelenchus xylophilus is the pathogen of pine wilt disease. Bursaphelenchus mucronatus is similar to B. xylophilus in morphology. Both species share a common niche, but they are quite different in pathogenicity. Presently, the role of bacteria in pine wilt disease development has been widely speculated. The diversity of bacteria associated with B.(More)
