One of the main contributing factors to the pathology of SLE is the accumulation and impaired clearance of immune complexes(More)
Using a construction of Barth and Verra that realizes torsion bundles on sections of special K3 surfaces, we prove that the minimal resolution of a general paracanonical curve C of odd genus g and order ` ≥ √ g+2 2 is natural, thus proving the Prym–Green Conjecture of [CEFS] . In the process, we confirm the expectation of Barth–Verra concerning the number(More)
Previous studies have highlighted the importance of lung-draining lymph nodes in the respiratory allergic immune response, whereas the lung parenchymal immune system has been largely neglected. We describe a new in vivo model of respiratory sensitization to Blomia tropicalis, the principal asthma allergen in the tropics, in which the immune response is(More)
