Secretion of the immunosuppressive cytokine interleukin (IL) 10 by effector T cells is an essential mechanism of self-limitation during infection. However, the transcriptional regulation of IL-10 expression in proinflammatory T helper (Th) 1 cells is insufficiently understood. We report a crucial role for the transcriptional regulator Blimp-1, induced by(More)
Ten patients treated for rupture of a biceps tendon were re-evaluated 2 years or longer after surgery. Four patients complained of loss of strength and increased fatigue. The concentric EMG examination and the technically more demanding Macro EMG technique showed normal motor unit action potential patterns in the muscle operated on and in the contralateral(More)
Patellofemoral kinematics were studied on a computer model. The articulating point of the patella moves from distal to proximal during flexion, until the quadriceps tendon starts to turn around the femur tendo-femoral gliding. The pattern of patellofemoral movement consists of a gliding and rolling component, the latter at its maximum at the beginning of(More)
