Myasthenia gravis (MG) is an autoimmune disorder generally mediated by antibodies against the acetylcholine receptors (AChR) of the skeletal muscles. CD4 T cells help B cells to produce antibodies through their production of cytokines or chemokines. In this study, we evaluated the frequency of regulatory (Treg) and IL-17 producing CD4 T-cell subsets (Th17)(More)
Myasthenia gravis (MG) is an autoimmune disorder generally mediated by antibodies against the acetylcholine receptors of the skeletal muscles. Depending on the disease burden, MG patients may experience chronic dysregulation of both the hormonal stress axis and the immune system, consequently, aggravating the disease itself but also leading to secondary(More)
This paper proposes a method for automatic extraction of the form of a single neuron from image series which are captured with Confocal Laser Scanning Microscopic (CLSM). Deficiency parts appear in binary images through extraction process because of noises in CLSM images. It is needed manual operation to compensate it. Our method connects some discrete(More)
