Human immune system variation

The human immune system is highly variable between individuals but relatively stable over time within a given person. Recent conceptual and technological advances have enabled systems immunology analyses, which reveal the composition of immune cells and proteins

The human immune system and network intrusion detection
free download

This paper reviews and assesses the analogy between the human immune system and network intrusion detection systems. The promising results from a growing number of proposed computer immune models for intrusion detection motivate this work. The paper It has recently become possible to generate chimeric mice durably engrafted with many components of the human immune system (HIS mice). We have characterized the maturation and function of the B cell compartment of HIS mice. The antibody response of HIS

ImmunoGrid-the virtual human immune system project
free download

ImmunoGrid is a 3 year project funded by the European Union which began in February 2006 and establishes an infrastructure for the simulation of the immune system that integrates processes at molecular, cellular and organ levels. It is designed for applications

Modelling the human immune system by combining bioinformatics and systems biology approaches
free download

Over the past decade a number of bioinformatics tools have been developed that use genomic sequences as input to predict to which parts of a microbe the immune system will react, the so-called epitopes. Many predicted epitopes have later been verified

MagicNET: The Human Immune System and Network Security System
free download

Most of the current security systems do not provide adequate level of protection against ever- increasing threats. The main reason for their failure is the use of point solutions to protect hosts and reactive approach against intrusions. We studied human immune system which Starting from a cosmid library of HCMV Ad169-DNA random fragments of DNA were generated. Fragments about 200 to 600 bp in length were selected and cloned into open reading frame (ORF) expression vectors to create ORF-libraries that represent either the

Full characterization of bovine colostrum, raw material for dietary supplements. His beneficial effect on the human immune system
free download

Colostrum is the first substance that is produced by the mammary gland (premilk), following the birth of the newborn. Having a special composition compared with any other food, this product represent an irreplaceable support the immune system . The most important With the improvement of medical care and hygienic conditions, there has been a tremendous increment in human lifespan. However, many of the elderly (> 65 years) display chronic illnesses, and a majority requires frequent and longer hospitalization. The

key component in the antibiotic treatment of hidradenitis suppurativa: a review of rifampins effects on bacteria, bacterial biofilms, and the human immune system
free download

Combinations of rifampin and clindamycin or rifampin, metronidazole, and moxifloxcin have been reported as effective treatments for hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) Hurley Stage 1 and Hurley Stage 2. Clinical trials suggest that for stage 1 and mild stage 2 HS, clindamycin 300

Evasion of the human innate immune system by dengue virus
free download

Dengue virus is a worldwide health problem, with billions of people at risk annually. Dengue virus causes a spectrum of diseases, namely dengue fever, dengue hemorrhagic fever and dengue shock syndrome with the latter two being linked to death. Understanding how Abstract P-glycoprotein, a 170-kd glycoprotein encoded by the MDR 1 gene, is a member of a highly conserved superfamily of ATP-binding cassette (ABC) transport proteins. It shares extensive homology with numerous bacterial and eukaryotic ABC transport proteins. P Monoclonal antibodies were used to analyse the effects of 8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p- dioxin (TCDD) on peripheral lymphocytes from marmosets (Callithrix jacchus) following injections of single low doses of TCDD. A reduction of the percentage and the total number Non- human primates (Callithrix jacchus) were treated with 8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p- dioxin (TCDD) over a period of 30 weeks, and lymphocyte subpopulations of venous blood were monitored using monoclonal antibodies and flow cytometry (FACScan). There was no

Adaptation of HIV-1 to the human immune system at the population level is driven by protective HLA-B alleles
free download

It is generally accepted that cytotoxic T lymphocytes (CTL) play an important role in controlling HIV replication, and that HIV undergoes extensive within-host adaptation to HIV- specific CTL responses. However, the full extent and importance of CTL escape mutations in
