A search for narrow resonances in the dijet mass spectrum is performed using data corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 2.9 pb⁻¹ collected by the CMS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider. Upper limits at the 95% confidence level are presented on the product of the resonance cross section, branching fraction into dijets, and acceptance, separately(More)
The production of jets associated to bottom quarks is measured for the first time in PbPb collisions at a center-of-mass energy of 2.76 TeV per nucleon pair. Jet spectra are reported in the transverse momentum (p(T)) range of 80-250  GeV/c, and within pseudorapidity |η|<2. The nuclear modification factor (R(AA)) calculated from these spectra shows a strong(More)
Results are presented from a search for heavy, right-handed muon neutrinos, N(μ), and right-handed W(R) bosons, which arise in the left-right symmetric extensions of the standard model. The analysis is based on a 5.0  fb(-1) sample of proton-proton collisions at a center-of-mass energy of 7 TeV, collected by the CMS detector at the Large Hadron Collider. No(More)
In a prospective study of 42 high-grade lymphomas which were categorized according to the Kiel classification, the clinical significance of immune genotyping was studied. Immunoglobulin (Ig) and T-cell receptor (TCR) gene rearrangements were investigated. In 33 cases the immune genotype confirmed the phenotype. In one case with equivocal phenotype a TCR(More)
Tissue specimens from 198 cases of Hodgkin's disease and 151 non-Hodgkin lymphomas, as well as 34 nonmalignant lymph node biopsies were examined for the presence of Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) DNA by polymerase chain reaction. Epstein-Barr virus-specific DNA sequences were detected in DNA extracts from frozen and/or paraffin-embedded tissues of 58% of(More)
CFU-F (colony forming units-fibroblast) were studied from cord blood and, as controls, from normal bone marrow of older children and adults. Numbers of CFU-F in cord blood buffy coat cells are lower by a factor of 10 in comparison to bone marrow CFU-F. Cytomorphology and staining with monoclonal antibody identify the progeny cells of CFU-F as fibroblasts.(More)
The presence of rubella virus antigen was demonstrated by means of immunohistological methods in two cases of angioimmunoblastic lymphadenopathy. One patient had elevated serum anti rubella titer and myocarditis. These findings support the idea that angioimmunoblastic lymphadenopathy develops as a combined effect of persistent virus infection and partial(More)
We have examined 69 B-cell non-Hodgkin's lymphomas (NHL) for rearrangements of the immunoglobulin (Ig) or T-cell antigen receptor (TCR) genes. The lymphomas were assigned to the categories of the Kiel classification and their B-cell nature was confirmed by immunostaining. Only 2 cases (with CLL) displayed clonal T beta-chain TCR gene rearrangements together(More)
Tumor necrosis factor (TNF) produced by macrophages is thought to contribute to the host defense against development of cancer. However, since tumor cells themselves are able to produce TNF, it is conceivable that TNF may also play an adverse pathological role in carcinogenesis. To better understand the functional significance of TNF in neoplastic disease,(More)
Electroweak production of the top quark is measured for the first time in pp collisions at √=7  TeV, using a data set collected with the CMS detector at the LHC and corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 36  pb⁻¹. With an event selection optimized for t-channel production, two complementary analyses are performed. The first one exploits the special(More)
