This paper presents a VLSI implementation of the Priority Adaptive Self-Organizing Concurrent System (PASOCS) learning model that is built using a multi-chip module (MCM) substrate. Many current hardware implementations of neural network learning models are direct implementations of classical neural network structures|a large number of simple computing(More)
The clinical efficacy of an acellular pertussis vaccine containing lymphocytosis-promoting factor, filamentous hemagglutinin, agglutinogens, and the 69-kd outer membrane protein, combined with diphtheria and tetanus toxoids and adsorbed onto an aluminum salt, was assessed in a household contact study. The occurrence of pertussis 7 to 30 days following home(More)
An acellular pertussis-component combined diphtheria and tetanus toxoids, and pertussis (APDT) vaccine adsorbed was compared with a licensed whole-cell pertussis-component combined diphtheria and tetanus toxoids, and pertussis (DTP) vaccine adsorbed for reactogenicity and immunogenicity when given as the fifth DTP immunization to eighty-two 4- to 6-year-old(More)
Healthy 17- to 24-month-old children, previously immunized with three doses of whole-cell diphtheria-tetanus-pertussis (DTP) vaccine, were enrolled in a multi-center double-blind, randomized study comparing a DTP vaccine with an acellular pertussis-component (APDT) and a conventional whole-cell pertussis-component DTP vaccine. Thirty-eight children received(More)
Fifty-three healthy infants received either Haemophilus influenzae type b capsular polysaccharide (PRP) mixed with diphtheria-pertussis-tetanus vaccine (DPT) or PRP conjugated covalently to diphtheria toxoid (PRP-D). The immunizations were given at 3, 5, 7, and either 14 or 18 months of age and were well tolerated. The geometric mean titers of antibody to(More)
The most widely used poliovaccine in the United States contains the three live attenuated strains originally produced by Sabin. An inactivated ("killed") formulation of this trivalent polio vaccine has now been prepared. Before testing this new vaccine, we assessed the poliovirus immune status of 39 healthy adult males between the ages of 20 and 44 years(More)
The requirement for dense interconnect in artii-cial neural network systems has led researchers to seek high-density interconnect technologies. This paper reports an implementation using multi-chip modules (MCMs) as the interconnect medium. The spe-ciic system described is a self-organizing, parallel, and dynamic learning model which requires a dense(More)
