In patients who are receiving prolonged antiretroviral treatment (ART), HIV can persist within a small pool of long-lived resting memory CD4(+) T cells infected with integrated latent virus. This latent reservoir involves distinct memory subsets. Here we provide results that suggest a progressive reduction of the size of the blood latent reservoir around a(More)
— The control of an active prosthetic elbow is problematic for most transhumeral amputees and a functional solution providing intuitive control over active multi-joint prosthetic upper limbs is yet to be found. The method in this paper uses IMU-based upper arm kinematics to predict the elbow motion based on upper limb joint coordinations during pointing(More)
Alzheimer's disease is a progressive degenerative disease of the brain marked by gradual and irreversible declines in cognitive functions. Acetylcholinesterase (AChE) plays a biological role in the termination of nerve impulse transmissions at cholinergic synapses by rapid hydrolysis of its substrate, "acetylcholine". The deficit level of acetylcholine(More)
Neuromuscular Electrical Stimulation (NMES) and Functional Electrical Stimulation (FES) are commonly prescribed rehabilitative therapies. Closed-loop NMES holds the promise to yield more accurate limb control, which could enable new rehabilitative procedures. However, NMES/FES can rapidly fatigue muscle, which limits potential treatments and presents(More)
— Previous results have shown experimental evidence that the muscle response to neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES) is delayed; the time lag is often referred to as electromechanical delay. NMES closed-loop control methods have been developed to compensate for a known constant input delay. However, as a muscle fatigues, this delay increases. This(More)
— Commercialized upper limb prostheses do not match the expectations of amputated people, especially tran-shumeral amputees. Most of them report a lack of function-ality, mostly explained by a counter-intuitive control strategy. This paper presents the first implementation of an automatic prosthesis control approach based on natural coordinations between(More)
In this paper, we propose to study the (1+1)-dimensional Klein-Gordon equation in the presence of a minimal length by two approaches: a method direct in the position space representation and a path integral formalism in energy-momentum space, where a particle is subjected to a mixing of linear vector plus scalar potentials. For a first method, a suitable(More)
There is rapidly growing interest by regulatory agencies and stakeholders in the potential toxicity and other risks associated with nanomaterials throughout the different stages of the product life cycle (e.g., development, production, use and disposal). Risk assessment methods and tools developed and applied to chemical and biological material may not be(More)
