Residual moisture determines the level of touch-contact-associated bacterial transfer following hand washing.
We report here a new and critical determinant of the effectiveness of hand hygiene procedures, namely the amount of residual moisture left on the hands after washing and drying. When samples of skin,Expand

INFLUENCE OF DOSE AND ROUTE OF ANTIGEN INJECTION ON THE IMMUNOLOGICAL INDUCTION OF T CELLS
Delayed-type hypersensitivity (DTH) develops in the absence of an adjuvant when mice are injected intravenously or subcutaneously with an appropriate dose of sheep red blood cells (SRBC). The optimalExpand

POTENTIATION OF T-CELL-MEDIATED IMMUNITY BY SELECTIVE SUPPRESSION OF ANTIBODY FORMATION WITH CYCLOPHOSPHAMIDE
Delayed-type hypersensitivity (DTH) appears in mice immunized with less than an optimal immunogenic dose of sheep red blood cells (SRBC), but is blocked progressively as antibody production increasesExpand

Experimental uremia. Description of a model producing varying degrees of stable uremia.
A model is described for the induction in the rat of varying degrees of stable uremia using controlled resection of renal tissue. Three degrees of uremia have been attained: 'mild--blood urea 40--80Expand

Anti-inflammatory activity of glycogen extracted fromPerna canaliculus (NZ green-lipped mussel)
Previous laboratory based in vestigations of a commercially prepared freeze-dried extract of the NZ green-lipped mussel (Perna canaliculus) showed that the material had the capacity to inhibitExpand

FEEDBACK INHIBITION OF SPECIFICALLY SENSITIZED LYMPHOCYTES
An explanation was sought for the fact that delayed-type hypersensitivity (DTH) does not normally occur in response to T-cell-dependent antigens unless an adjuvant is used. But when sheep red bloodExpand

Local immune response in experimental pyelonephritis.
Experiments using an in vitro method of assessing protein synthesis by (14)C amino acid incorporation were designed to determine whether pyelonephritic kidneys were capable of local antibodyExpand

Host immune status in uremia. IV. Phagocytosis and inflammatory response in vivo.
Infection is a frequent complication and cause of death in renal failure, but the association between uremia, depressed immune status, and susceptibility to infection is far from proven. In theExpand

Autoimmunity in chronic experimental pyelonephritis.
Clinical studies have shown that in chronic pyelonephritis, kidneys may frequently be sterile, a finding that suggests that the progression of active chronic pyelonephritis may not require theExpand

Complement-mediated immune mechanisms in renal infection.
The belief that the inactivation of complement by renal ammonia enhances the susceptibility of renal tissue to infection has been held for some years. This thesis has been investigated in the presentExpand
