They include a northern subtropical (Factor 1), a southern subtropical (Factor 2), a Peru Current (Factor 3) and an eastern Equatorial Pacific (Factor(More)
A vast spectrum of therapeutic interventions is based on stem cell technology, ranging from inert biomaterials to pluripotent, virally-modified cells.

Results Mice treated with 2 mg peanut developed peanut-specific IgE levels which were significantly higher than control mice (p<0.001, n=10/group). Mice treated with 2 mg turkey developed a similar IgE response to turkey (p<0.001, n=10/group). In the second study, allergy was only triggered in one of ten mice treated with 2 mg peanut. Two of ten mice(More)
