Host response elicited by photodynamic therapy (PDT) of cancerous lesions is a critical contributor to the clinical outcome, and complement system has emerged as its important element.

The adjuvanticity of two gamma inulin/liposomes/Vitamin E combinations was evaluated in the mouse, in contraceptive vaccines with sperm protein extracts or a synthetic HE2 peptide ("Human Epididymis gene product"; residues 15-28) as antigen. The HE2 peptide was not conjugated to a protein carrier, to ensure that the antibodies elicited were specific against(More)

Findings for unselected samples of the elderly in two urban populations — one in Mannheim, Germany (n=418) and the other in Sao Paulo, Brazil (n=111)-are compared and contrasted. Each study was restricted to persons aged over 65 years living in private households, and each employed a single-stage method of psychiatric case-identification, based on the(More)
