Recruitment of neutrophils to sites of inflammation is mediated in part by endothelial leukocyte adhesion molecule-1 (ELAM-1), which is expressed on activated endothelial cells of the blood vessel walls. ELAM-1 is a member of the LEC-CAM or selectin family of adhesion molecules that contain a lectin motif thought to recognize carbohydrate ligands. In this(More)
Shock due to Gram-negative bacterial sepsis is a consequence of acute inflammatory response to lipopolysaccharide (LPS) or endotoxin released from bacteria. LPS is a major constituent of the outer membrane of Gram-negative bacteria, and its terminal disaccharide phospholipid (lipid A) portion contains the key structural features responsible for toxic(More)
After three years of work the Dutch Parallel Corpus (DPC) project has reached an end. The finalized corpus is a ten-million-word high-quality sentence-aligned bidirectional parallel corpus of Dutch, English and French, with Dutch as central language. In this paper we present the corpus and try to formulate some basic data collection principles, based on the(More)
Although several new therapeutic approaches have improved outcomes in the treatment of hematologic malignancies, unmet need persists in acute myeloid leukemia (AML), multiple myeloma (MM) and non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. Here we describe the proteomic identification of a novel cancer target, SAIL (Surface Antigen In Leukemia), whose expression is observed in(More)
This study examines how three captioning types (i.e., on-screen text in the same language as the video) can assist L2 learners in the incidental acquisition of target vocabulary words and in the comprehension of L2 video. A sample of 133 Flemish undergraduate students watched three French clips twice. The control group (n = 32) watched the clips without(More)
Project managers are challenged to continuously make decisions throughout the development of a project attempting to minimize the overall cost of completing that particular project and seeking to meet a pre-established deadline. These time-cost tradeoff decisions are made even more complex when resource constraints are added to the equation. In this(More)
The possibilities within e-learning environments increased dramatically the last couple of years. They are more and more deployed on the Web, allow various types of tasks and fine-grained feedback, and they can make use of audiovisual material. On the other hand, we are confronted with an increasing heterogeneity in terms of end-user devices (smartphones,(More)
−− The selection of a Discrete Event Simulation Software (DESS) that best meets the needs of a given organization is not an easy task. The purpose of the present work was to develop a systematic approach, applicable to any industry, for the evaluation and selection of a suitable DESS. Based on similar approaches from different authors, this method adds 40(More)
