Five mouse strains, CBA/J, BALB/c, C3H/HeJ, A/J, and C57Bl/6J-bg-bg, all showed similar expulsion kinetics for Nippostrongylus brasiliensis (infective dose = 500 L3). Typically, parasite recovery was maximal on day 2 in the lungs and by day 4 in the small intestine. Few worms (less than 5% infective dose) were recovered on day 14 in all strains. These same(More)
PREFACE The high cost of textbooks has become a visible and highly charged topic over the past two years, generating scores of state legislative measures and hundreds of institutional initiatives focused on tactical responses to textbook affordability, such as used textbook availability. The spiraling cost of textbooks, however, is only a symptom of a(More)
 Our GPU allowed for:  T = 30 multiprocessors * 32 concurrent warps * 32 threads/warp = 30720  t = 512  We used k = 10  Ignoring the overhead yielded from copying data from main memory to GPU memory, the resulting theoretical complexity obtained is ⌈N / 30720 ⌉ * 10 * log 2 (512) * log 51.2 (30720)  In the real world, taking overhead into account, our(More)
Because of the tremendous impact that parasitic infections have on the health and productivity of humans and domestic animals, considerable research effort has been focused upon understanding the mechanisms of host-parasite coexistence, host resistance and immunopathology. Studies have employed a range of approaches including: kinetic analysis of parasite(More)
Both mucosal and systemic immune responses are depressed in mice infected with the nematode Nippostrongylus brasiliensis and this is correlated with a striking increase in the numbers of histamine-containing, mucosal-associated mast cells. As suppressor T cells bear histamine H2 receptors, we have used the H2 antagonist, cimetidine, to test whether(More)
