This paper considers the stabilization problem for linear time-invariant (LTI) systems with a single delay h in the feedback loop. Two parametrizations of all stabilizing controllers are derived in terms of a state-space realization of the rational part of the plant. These parametrizations have simple structures and clear interpretations: the first is in… (More)
Large defects of the chest wall require stabilization of the remaining thorax to prevent paradoxical movement. A technique of fixation using rib grafts and compression plates is presented.
The anti-common gamma chain (gammac) mAb CP.B8 is shown to inhibit interleukin 4 (IL-4)-dependent proliferation of phytohemagglutinin (PHA) activated T cells noncompetitively with respect to cytokine by blocking the IL-4-induced heterodimerization of IL-4Ralpha and gammac receptor chains. Affinities for the binding of IL-4 to Cos-7 cells transfected with… (More)
Mononuclear leukocytes from 151 patients with cancer of various organs and from 467 apparently cancer-free individuals were exposed, in vitro, to H2O2 (100 microM) and the effects of the exposure on the activity of adenosine diphosphate ribosyl transferase (ADPRT) were determined. First, the reproducibility of this test procedure was established as… (More)
AIDS is a syndrome caused by HIV. The virus is spread by homosexual or heterosexual transmission and by infected blood or certain body fluids. Respiratory infections are the commonest cause of death, and diagnosis may be difficult. The fiberoptic bronchoscope (FOB) plays an essential role in diagnosing respiratory infections in AIDS and is important in… (More)
