OBJECTIVE Urban air samples contain numerous irregular respirable black particles, which may be airborne tire fragments. A major component of tires is natural latex. Proteins of natural latex can act as adjuvants and as antigens capable of eliciting immediate hypersensitivity, making their presence in particulate air pollution an important clinical issue.(More)
In document management systems it is desirable to provide content-based access to documents going beyond regular expression search in addition to access based on structural characteristics or associated attributes. We present a new approach for coupling OODBMSs (Object Oriented Database Management Systems) and IRSs (Information Retrieval Systems) that(More)
Requirements of modern Hypermedia Document Systems include support for structured d o cu-ments and full DBMS and IRS functionality. 1 An objective of DBMSs is to store and facilitate updates of highly structured and typed data. In conventional IRSs, however, documents are perceived as at. Uncertainty, on the other hand, is a principal notion in the IRS(More)

Thymoglobulin (rATG), polyclonal immunoglobulin, is prepared from rabbits immunized with human thymocytes. It is effective in prevention and treatment of renal allograft rejection. Human antibodies against antilymphocyte preparations can reduce efficacy by accelerating drug clearance or by inducing serum sickness. We developed an enzyme-linked immunosorbent(More)

OBJECTIVE The upper age of renal transplant recipients is rising on the transplant wait list. Age-dependent immune responsiveness to new antigens has not been thoroughly studied. This study used a mouse model of alloantibody response to neoalloantigen to study age-related differences. METHODS Transgenic huCD20-C57BL/6 mice were immunized intraperitoneally(More)
The problems in identifying and managing drug allergy are myriad, primarily because of the number of possible agents involved, the lack of objective diagnostic methods, and the varied signs and symptoms that may occur. Allergic reactions can be life-threatening and are avoidable in most cases. A careful and serious approach is important because the effect(More)
