The 2002 discovery of a robust modern human mandible in the Peştera cu Oase, southwestern Romania, provides evidence of early modern humans in the lower Danubian Corridor. Directly accelerator mass spectrometry radiocarbon (14C)-dated to 34,000-36,000 14C years B.P., the Oase 1 mandible is the oldest definite early modern human specimen in Europe and(More)
In February 2002, during speleological exploration of a karstic system in the southwestern Carpathian Mountains, Stefan Milota, Adrian Bı̂lgar and Laurentiu Sarcina discovered a previously unknown karstic chamber with abundant remains of Ursus spelaeus, occasional other mammalian skeletal elements, and a largely complete human mandible on the paleosurface.(More)
Between 2003 and 2005, the Peştera cu Oase, Romania yielded a largely complete early modern human cranium, Oase 2, scattered on the surface of a Late Pleistocene hydraulically displaced bone bed containing principally the remains of Ursus spelaeus. Multiple lines of evidence indicate an age of approximately 40.5 thousand calendar years before the present(More)
CCLE, a disease entity at the benign end of the lupus spectrum, is characterized by marked photosensitivity and skin lesions in sun-exposed areas. The histopathology of lesions resembles hypersensitivity type IV reactions. We have asked whether an association between class II alleles and CCLE exists. RFLP analysis of HLA-DQA genes revealed a Taq I HLA-DQA1(More)
Monoclonal antibodies (moAbs) that recognize common or variable determinants of the gamma delta T-cell receptor (TcR) were used to assess gamma delta T-cell distribution on biopsy specimens and/or peripheral blood leukocytes (PBL) from 30 patients suffering from chronic cutaneous lupus erythematosus (CCLE). CD3+/gamma delta TcR + T cells were evaluated in(More)
