A new all-ceramic crown. A dense-sintered, high-purity alumina coping with porcelain.
A method of manufacturing an all-ceramic crown composed of a coping of dense-sintered, high-purity alumina with dental porcelain is described. This method takes the sintering shrinkage of alumina… Expand

Abstract A model is derived for the optimal spatial allocation of foraging effort for an animal returning with food to a central place in a uniform habitat. The forager is assumed to maximize its… Expand
Extended NO analysis applied to patients with COPD, allergic asthma and allergic rhinitis.
The recommended method to measure exhaled nitric oxide (NO) cannot reveal the source of NO production. We applied a model based on the classical Fick's first law of diffusion to partition NO in the… Expand

Aim: Inhalation of lipopolysaccharide (LPS) produces both systemic and pulmonary inflammatory responses. The aim of this study was to further characterize the response to LPS in order to develop a… Expand
Repeated intranasal TLR7 stimulation reduces allergen responsiveness in allergic rhinitis
BackgroundInteractions between Th1 and Th2 immune responses are of importance to the onset and development of allergic disorders. A Toll-like receptor 7 agonist such as AZD8848 may have potential as… Expand
