Models so far considered as facility location problems treat either min–max or max–min criterion, that is, the facility is either desirable or undesirable. We propose the following model considering the satisfaction degree with respect to the distance from the facility for each customer (residents) and preference of the site in an urban area. The objective(More)
Recent studies have reported that APC can present particulate exogenous Ag in the context of class I MHC to CD8+ CTL, and our laboratory demonstrated that IL-3 could enhance CTL generation to exogenous Ag. In this paper, we wished to determine whether presentation of particulate Ag could be enhanced by IL-3. A T cell hybridoma, B3Z86/90.14 (B3Z) restricted(More)
Between one-third and one-half of all cases of sepsis are known to be caused by gram-positive microorganisms through the cell wall component, e.g. lipoteichoic acid (LTA). Gram-positive bacteria are also known to induce encephalomyelitis and meningeal inflammation, and enhance the production of nitric oxide (NO) via expression of inducible nitric oxide(More)
To study mother-to-infant transmission of GB virus C/hepatitis G virus (GBV-C/HGV), blood samples of infants born to carrier mothers were collected beginning 3 months after birth and were tested for GBV-C/HGV RNA until 1 year of age. Of 2046 mothers, 2.1% were positive for GBV-C/HGV RNA, and 25 of their infants were followed for a median of 12 months.(More)
Based on an entropy maximization principle both the spatial interaction model and the discrete choice model are discussed first to clarify the meaning of the accessibility and the utility function. We next introduce a mixture of expert that is one kind of probabilistic neural network and define the preference function in the MoE. The presented model can be(More)
