Quantification of live cells in phase contrast microscopy images allows in vivo assessment of the viability of cultured cells. An automatic screening procedure seems advisable because of the large number of cells that must be counted to achieve reasonable accuracy. This paper presents a method that quantifies necrosis in cell cultures by texture analysis of(More)
BACKGROUND Cilastatin reduces nephrotoxicity associated with cyclosporin A (CyA) in solid organ and bone marrow transplantation. This appears to be unrelated to changes in renal haemodynamics or CyA metabolism. How cilastatin induces this protection is unclear, but it could result from changes on accumulation of CyA proximal cells. METHODS We investigated(More)
