Spatiotemporally-controlled delivery of hypoxia-induced angiogenic factor mixtures has been identified by this group as a promising strategy for overcoming the limited ability of chronically ischemic tissues to generate adaptive angiogenesis. We previously developed an implantable, as well as an injectable system for delivering fibroblast-produced factors(More)
Methods for identifying physiologically relevant CD8 T-cell epitopes are critically important not only for the development of T-cell-based vaccines but also for understanding host-pathogen interactions. As experimentally mapping an optimal CD8 T-cell epitope is a tedious procedure, many bioinformatic tools have been developed that predict which peptides(More)
In a number of experiments it was shown that the dithionate ion possesses a higher effective mobility than the chloride ion in aqueous solution, thus enabling the direct and simultaneous isotachophoretic determination of chloride and other anions. Using an acid-base titration, we found only one pKa value for dithionic acid, which is in contrast to the two(More)
Amifostine [WR-2721; H2N-(CH2)3-NH-(CH2)2-S-PO3H2] is used as a protecting agent in the chemotherapy of neuroblastoma. It is supposed that Amifostine will be transformed into its active form, the free thiol (WR-1065), easier by normal cells than by tumour cells. Analytical capillary isotachophoresis was used to determine the dephosphorylation of Amifostine(More)
