The in vitro activities of mupirocin, quinupristin/dalfopristin, linezolid, eperezolid, sitafloxacin, clinafloxacin, moxifloxacin, amoxycillin, metronidazole and clarithromycin were tested at pH 7.4 against 57 strains of Helicobacter pylori. The most active agents (mupirocin, sitafloxacin and clinafloxacin) were also tested for activity at pH 5.4 against(More)
The 17 m diameter IACT MAGIC will be commissioned during this year. The control system of the telescope is distributed over a number of functional autonomous elements. CANbus is favored for the communication with the hardware. A central PC steers all these subsystems over Ethernet and allows a human operator full control over the telescope. Here we mainly(More)
The analysis of finite mixture models for exponential repeated data is considered. The mixture components correspond to different possible states of the statistical units. Dependency and variability of repeated data are taken into account through random effects. For each component, an exponential mixed model is thus defined. When considering parameter(More)
This study is an investigation into the modulatory effects of heparin, a component of the extracellular matrix that binds to dihydropyridine receptors, on contraction and Ca2+ channels in frog skeletal muscle. Using tension and Ca2+ signal measurements in single intact skeletal muscle cells we have found that heparin (100-200 micrograms ml-1) substantially(More)
In this paper, we consider the flow of an incompressible fluid in a deformable porous solid. We present a mathematical model using the framework offered by the theory of interacting continua. In its most general form, this framework provides a mechanism for capturing multiphase flow, deformation, chemical reactions and thermal processes, as well as(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE alpha-thalassemia is very common on all thalassemic geographical regions. The present work aimed at analyzing the relationship between the degree of microcytosis and hematological parameters and the type of alpha-thalassemic mutation. DESIGN AND METHODS Five hundred and thirty-six subjects with 4 kinds of alpha-thalassemia were(More)
