The present study assessed the capacity of eosinophils (EOS) to synthesize the cytokine IL-12. Blood-derived, highly purified human EOS from six atopic patients and two nonatopic individuals were treated in culture with IL-4, IL-5, granulocyte-macrophage CSF, IFN-gamma, TNF-alpha, IL-1alpha, RANTES, and complement 5a, respectively. The expression of both(More)
The present study assessed the molecular mechanism underlying ultraviolet (UV) B radiation-induced inhibition of the expression of the adhesion molecule ICAM-1 in human antigen-presenting cells (APC). UVB radiation-induced inhibition of ICAM-I expression in human peripheral blood monocytes was associated with the generation of cyclobutane pyrimidine dimers(More)
Using time-domain terahertz spectroscopy we performed direct studies of the photoinduced suppression and recovery of the superconducting gap in a conventional BCS superconductor NbN. Both processes are found to be strongly temperature and excitation density dependent. The analysis of the data with the established phenomenological Rothwarf-Taylor model(More)
BACKGROUND Fibrotic skin lesions in patients with localized scleroderma can cause muscle atrophy, disfigurement, and flexion contractures. There is no effective therapy for this disease. Skin fibrosis is thought to be caused by decreased collagenase activity. Collagenase activity can be induced in dermal fibroblasts by UVA1 irradiation. OBJECTIVE Our(More)
Observations of radiation-enhanced superconductivity have thus far been limited to a few type-I superconductors (Al, Sn) excited at frequencies between the inelastic scattering rate and the superconducting gap frequency 2Δ/h. Utilizing intense, narrow-band, picosecond, terahertz pulses, tuned to just below and above 2Δ/h of a BCS superconductor NbN, we(More)
We evaluate a new 12-channel multi-spectral line scan camera system for full-width inline color measurements. The system provides full reflectance spectra for each pixel allowing for accurate color measurement with high spatial resolution. In our analysis, we performed measurements on three test-charts printed in our lab and by different offset printing(More)
Immunocompromised patients are developing in an increasing frequency acyclovir-resistant herpes simplex infections. Different treatment options need to be evaluated considering the possible side effects in regard to the patients' immunocompromised status. A 73-year-old woman with B-cell lymphatic leukemia with a secondary antibody deficiency syndrome and(More)
