Interleukin-10 (IL-10) is mainly an anti-inflammatory cytokine produced by a number of cells including normal and neoplastic B cells. It has been implicated in autoimmunity, transplantation tolerance and tumourigenesis. Polymorphisms in the IL-10 gene promoter genetically determine inter-individual differences in IL-10 production. The aim of this study was(More)
Hypomagnesemic and normomagnesemic calves were infused rectally with MgCl2 X 6H2O to determine effects on magnesium (Mg), calcium (Ca) and potassium (K) concentrations in plasma, red blood cells (RBC) and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF). Sixteen Holstein bull calves were fed one of four semipurified diets containing low or adequate Mg and normal or excess K in a(More)
Sociologists of (e)valuation have devoted considerable attention to understanding differences in evaluative practices across a number of fields. Yet, little is understood about how individuals learn about and navigate multivalent valid group styles within a single setting. As a social phenomenon, many accept how central processes of evaluation are to(More)
Rates of increase in plasma Mg following rectal or oral administration of solutions containing 30 g MgCl2.6H2O were compared in 10 Holstein bull calves receiving wheat straw (.07% Mg) and concentrates (.04 or .24% Mg) fed separately for ad libitum consumption. Treatments were administered in a sequence, which involved each calf with all combinations of(More)
Peripheral venous access can often be difficult to obtain in infants and young children. Landmark articles in the 1940s showed that the intraosseous (IO) route was a viable one for resuscitation. While anecdotal reports and clinical experience suggest that blood products can be transfused via the IO route, it has not been specifically studied nor(More)
In this demonstration proposal, we will deliver the design and implementation of a static and mobile detector system for monitoring traffic and pollution in existing road networks. The measured data comes from netwoks of low cost, pervasive sensors referred to as "smart motes" as well as legacy monitoring stations. These provide real-time information on(More)
