This paper presents a high-performance substrate-integrated-waveguide RF microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) tunable filter for 1.2-1.6-GHz frequency range. The proposed filter is developed using packaged RF MEMS switches and utilizes a two-layer structure that effectively isolates the cavity filter from the RF MEMS switch circuitry. The two-pole filter(More)
Junin virus-induced encephalitis in suckling mouse is a delayed-type hypersensitivity reaction, whose immunopathologic nature has been proven by suppressing the thymus-dependent response. Cyclophosphamide (CY) given at day +6 post-infection (p.i.) has been shown to modulate infection, presumably by TDTH lymphocyte inactivation. To determine critical timing(More)
The aim of this work was to study the effect of xanthan gum (XG) on the gelation process of bovine sodium caseinate (NaCAS) induced by acidification with glucono-δ-lactone (GDL) and on the mixed acid gel microstructure. Before GDL addition, segregative phase separation was observed in all the NaCAS-XG mixtures evaluated. The gelation process was analyzed by(More)
Alpha-macroglobulins (AM) are proteins that inactivate proteinases. Sodium monofluorophosphate (MFP) binds to AM and transiently changes AM plasma levels. As a consequence MFP is useful to modify AM homeostasis. A mathematical model to study the homeostasis of AM is proposed in this paper. The model describes changes in plasma concentration of AM, MFP(More)
Delayed-type-hypersensitivity (DTH) response "in vivo" is commonly evaluated by the footpad swelling test (FPST). High doses of Sheep Red Blood Cells (SRBC) are known to produce negligible DTH, while low doses lead to optimal sensitization. As expected FPST values obtained in Balb/c mice using 10(6) or 10(8) SRBC as sensitizing doses, showed that in 9 out(More)
