Many inflammatory diseases are characterised by persistent and inappropriate neutrophil activation, systemic or localised hypoxia, and bacterial colonisation. Hypoxia represents an important regulator of inflammatory responses because it inhibits neutrophil apoptosis, a process central to the timely resolution of inflammation. Progress in understanding how(More)
Experimental investigations into the dynamics of cylindrical, laser-driven, high-Mach-number shocks are used to study the thermal cooling instability predicted to occur in astrophysical radiative blast waves. A streaked Schlieren technique measures the full blast-wave trajectory on a single-shot basis, which is key for observing shock velocity oscillations.(More)
BACKGROUND The neuropsychological consequences of exposure to environmental hypobaric hypoxia (EHH) remain unclear. We thus investigated them in a large group of healthy volunteers who trekked to Mount Everest base camp (5,300 m). METHODS A neuropsychological (NP) test battery assessing memory, language, attention, and executive function was administered(More)
