BACKGROUND The exhaled nitric oxide (eNO) signal is a marker of inflammation, and can be partitioned into proximal [J'awNO (nl/s), maximum airway flux] and distal contributions [CANO (ppb), distal airway/alveolar NO concentration]. We hypothesized that J'awNO and CANO are selectively elevated in asthmatics, permitting identification of four inflammatory(More)
Exhaled nitric oxide (eNO) is elevated in asthmatics and is a purported marker of airway inflammation. The bronchodilator response (BDR) has also been shown to correlate with markers of airway inflammation, including eNO at 50 ml/sec (FE(NO,50)) which is comprised of NO from both the proximal and distal airways. Using eNO at multiple flows and a(More)
The proliferation of goods and services offered online, as well as the growing number of e-consumers are catalysts for the ongoing burgeoning of e-commerce among Internet activities. Numerous industries have adopted e-commerce technologies to optimize and automate business processes. In this paper, we are mainly concerned on the synergic relationship(More)
We have three motivations for looking at this theorem. Firstly it can be seen as partial confirmation of a conjecture of Fontaine and Mazur which asserts that if ρ : GQ → GLn(Qp) is a continuous irreducible representation ramified at only finitely many primes and such that the image of the inertia group at p is finite, then the image of ρ is finite (see(More)
Exhaled nitric oxide (eNO) is elevated in asthmatics and is a purported marker of airway inflammation. By measuring eNO at multiple flows and applying models of eNO exchange dynamics, the signal can be partitioned into its proximal airway [J' aw NO (nl/sec)] and distal airway/alveolar contributions [CA(NO)(ppb)]. Several studies have demonstrated the(More)
Therapies using adult stem cells often require mechanical manipulation such as injection or incorporation into scaffolds. However, force-induced rupture and mechanosensitivity of cells during manipulation is largely ignored. Here, we image cell mechanical structures and perform a biophysical characterization of three different types of human adult stem(More)
