Class II major histocompatibility (MHC) molecules have an immunoregulatory role. These cell-surface glycoproteins present fragments of protein antigens (or peptides) to thymus-derived lymphocytes (T cells). Nucleotide sequence polymorphism in the genes that encode the class II MHC products determines the specificity of the immune response and is correlated(More)
GS-7340 and GS-9131 {9-[(R)-2-[[(S)-[[(S)-1-(isopropoxycarbonyl)ethyl]amino]phenoxyphosphinyl]methoxy]-propyl]adenine and 9-(R)-4'-(R)-[[[(S)-1-[(ethoxycarbonyl)ethyl]amino]phenoxyphosphinyl]methoxy]-2'-fluoro-1'-furanyladenine, respectively} are novel alkylalaninyl phenyl ester prodrugs of tenofovir {9-R-[(2-phosphonomethoxy)propyl]adenine} (TFV) and a(More)
The drug coating process for coated drug-eluting stents (DES) has been identified as a key source of inter- and intra-batch variability in drug elution rates. Quality-by-design (QbD) principles were applied to gain an understanding of the ultrasonic spray coating process of DES. Statistically based design of experiments (DOE) were used to understand the(More)
We derive the major characteristics of inclusive and diffractive final states in deep-inelastic scattering off heavy nuclei for the high-energy (small-x) kinematics in which the limit of complete absorption is reached for the dominant hadronic fluctuations in the virtual photon (the black-body limit of the process). Both the longitudinal and transverse(More)
