B lymphocytes from patients with X chromosome-linked immunoglobulin deficiency with normal or elevated serum IgM are unable to switch from the synthesis of IgM/IgD to that of other immunoglobulin isotypes. Isotype switch recombination was evaluated in three affected males by examining interleukin 4-driven IgE synthesis. T-cell-dependent IgE synthesis was(More)
The chemistry of peroxynitric acid (HO2NO2) and methyl peroxynitrate (CH3O2NO2) is predicted to be particularly important in the upper troposphere where temperatures are frequently low enough that these compounds do not rapidly decompose. At temperatures below 240 K, we calculate that about 20% of NOy in the midand high-latitude upper troposphere is HO2NO2.(More)
The thermal stability of sputter-deposited Mo/Si multilayers was investigated by annealing studies at relatively low temperatures (˜ 250-350 °C) for various times (0.5-3000 h). Two distinct stages of thermally activated Mo/Si interlayer growth were found: a primary surge, followed by a (slower) secondary steady-state growth in which the interdiffusion(More)
In a patient with lifelong increased susceptibility to infection and multiple abnormalities in complement-mediated functions, the infusion of normal plasma had been seen to produce a prolonged partial correction of serum abnormalities. It was subsequently shown that the patient was genetically deficient in the C3b inactivator and that immunochemical(More)
BACKGROUND Previous surveys have reported variation in transfusion practice or policies in specific pediatric populations. Our objective was to determine the current transfusion policies in US and Canadian children's hospitals for both neonatal and pediatric general populations. STUDY DESIGN AND METHODS US and Canadian blood bank (BB) personnel at(More)
OBJECTIVE Transfusion-related acute lung injury is the leading cause of transfusion-related mortality. A prospective study using electronic surveillance was conducted at two academic medical centers in the United States with the objective to define the clinical course and outcomes in transfusion-related acute lung injury cases. DESIGN Prospective case(More)
<p>Recent advances in multilayer mirror technology meet many of the stringent demands of soft-x-ray projection lithography (SXPL). The maximum normal-incidence reflectivity achieved to date is 66% for Mo/Si multilayers at a soft-x-ray wavelength of 13.4 am, which is sufficient to satisfy the x-ray throughput requirements of SXPL. These high-performance(More)
Chirped Mo-Si multilayer coatings, where the multilayer period is systematically varied throughout the deposition process, exhibit an increased x-ray bandwidth at normal incidence with a corresponding increase in the integrated reflectance of as much as 20% at lambda ~ 13 nm. The increased bandwidth is accompanied by a slight reduction in peak reflectance.(More)
