This paper is concerned with video sequence analysis for urban area surveillance applications. The aim is to detect, track and classify targets entering a urban scene under varying illumination conditions and distracters. The paper contributions consist in the integration of algorithms for performing the various tasks and in their statistical evaluation.(More)
To investigate the possible effects of glycoinositolphospholipid (GIPL) from Trypanosoma cruzi on human antigen presenting cells, we tested their effects on lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-stimulated human macrophages and dendritic cells (DC). Human macrophages or DC were incubated with GIPL (50 microg/ml) and LPS (500 pg/ml) and tumor necrosis factor alpha(More)
Two procedures were used with one subject to examine changes in the ear canal with jaw motion. Silicone ear impressions were examined to measure the effect of jaw position. Magnetic resonance imaging was used to define the three-dimensional structure of the canal and visualize key underlying tissue. Results showed that inexpensive impressions can detail(More)

In the past, the human earcanal has primarily been thought of as a passive conduit for sound. Several studies, reported here, explored evidence of how active the earcanal is. The "active earcanal" is conceptualized and aspects of it are viewed through three timeframes: jaw-induced canal change in seconds/minutes, cerumen production in weeks/months, and(More)
UNLABELLED Incomplete septal cirrhosis is a form of macronodular cirrhosis characterized by fine and incomplete septa, which delimit rudimentary regeneration nodules. Its etiopathogeny is uncertain and is associated with various diseases such as regenerative nodular hyperplasia, idiopathic portal hypertension, and partial non-cirrhotic nodular(More)
