Chemotherapy is often futile in systemic listeriosis, translating to being a peril to public health. There is, thus, an imperative need for novel antilisterial compounds, possibly acting through mechanisms dissimilar to those of existing drugs. The present study describes one such agent-the non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) diclofenac sodium(More)
Macrophages play important roles in defense against infection, as well as in homeostasis maintenance. Thus alterations of macrophage function can have unexpected pathological results. Cyclooxygenase (COX) inhibitors are widely used to relieve pain, but the effects of long-term usage on macrophage function remain to be elucidated. Using bone marrow-derived(More)
Granulocyte-macrophage colony stimulating factor (GM-CSF) has a role in inducing emergency hematopoiesis upon exposure to inflammatory stimuli. Although GM-CSF generated murine bone marrow derived cells have been widely used as macrophages or dendritic cells in research, the exact characteristics of each cell population have not yet been defined. Here we(More)
In this paper, we proposed a measurement-based admission control (MBAC) algorithm for adaptive real-time applications in wireless IP network. In our algorithm, admission test is performed over successive time scale based on the maximal link busy time (MBT), which provides an upper bound for admission test. Analysis and simulation results show that the(More)
