We present a new identity based authenticated key agreement protocol from pairings satisfying the required security attributes. The security of our protocol is based on the bilinear Diffie-Hellman assumption.
The main targets for the immunosuppressive calcineurin inhibitors, cyclosporin A (CsA) and tacrolimus, have been considered to be activated T cells, but not antigen-presenting cells. Here we demonstrate that CsA and tacrolimus, but not rapamycin, inhibit major histocompatibility complex (MHC)-restricted antigen presentation in dendritic cells (DCs).… (More)
The effects of processed Aloe vera gel (PAG) on the course of established diet-induced non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (NIDDM) were studied in C57BL/6J mice. NIDDM was induced in C57BL/6J mice by feeding them a high-fat diet. Mice exhibiting diet-induced obesity (DIO) with blood glucose levels above 180mg/dl were selected to examine the antidiabetic… (More)
Joux  presented a one round protocol for tripartitie key agreement and Al-Riyami et.al.  developed a number of tripartitie, one round, authenticated protocols related to MTI and MQV protocols. Recently, Boneh and Silverleg  studied multilinear forms, which provides a one round multi-party key agreement protocol. In this paper, we propose (n + 1)… (More)
Acharan sulfate isolated from the giant African snail, Achatina fulica, has been reported to have antitumor activity in vivo. In an effort to determine the mechanisms of its antitumor activity, we examined the effects of acharan sulfate on professional antigen presenting cells (APCs). Acharan sulfate increased the phagocytic activity, the production of… (More)
Pose estimation, which determines the position and the attitude of the camera, is a prerequisite for a variety of photogrammetric tasks such as image matching, surface reconstruction, ortho-photo generation, and object recognition. As digital imagery is becoming more popular in photogrammetric applications, features other than points are increasingly… (More)
Myeloid-derived suppressor cells (MDSCs) accumulate in cancer patients and tumor-bearing mice, subsequently suppressing the host immune system. MDSCs represent a group of immature myeloid cells expressing CD11b and Gr-1. Here, we show that a Toll-like receptor (TLR) agonist, resiquimod, which binds to TLR7 and TLR8, induces the differentiation of MDSCs into… (More)
In this paper, we extend the 2-party key exchange protocol on braid groups to the group key agreement protocol based on the hardness of Ko-Lee problem. We also provide authenticity to the group key agreement protocol.
