Objective: Oropharyngeal candidiasis (OPC), caused by Candida albicans, is the most common oral infection in HIV+ persons. Oral epithelial cells are considered important for innate host defense against OPC with production of cytokines in response to C. albicans and the ability to inhibit Candida growth in vitro. The purpose of this study was to determine if(More)
OBJECTIVE In HIV+ persons with reduced CD4+ T cells, oropharyngeal candidiasis (OPC) is often associated with the accumulation of CD8+ T cells at the epithelial/lamina propria interface within the lesion together with increased tissue-associated cytokines and chemokines. Despite this reactivity, a dysfunction in the ability of the CD8+ cells to reach the(More)
We describe a methodology and associated system for the interpretation of images of engineering drawings based on the exploitation of the Unix tool Yacc. The system is extensible and clearly relates a hy-pothesis/prediction/verification strategy to a hierarchical model description and the deployment of low level techniques. Examples are given of the(More)
Automatic classification of customer reviews as either positive or negative has been of great interest among the academic and business community in the recent times. In this paper, an attempt has been made to represent the text documents using just eight representative terms (RT) viz. good, very good, excellent, recommended, bad, very bad, disgusting, and(More)
