Salmonid B lymphocytes were stimulated both in vivo and in vitro
and shown to produce antibody specific for the immunogen. A passive
hemolytic plaque assay was employed to demonstrate B cells producing
specific antibody. Characterization of plaque forming cells (PFCs)
involved sequential inhibition with a series of graded concentrations
The in vitro effects of cortisol in regulating salmonid B cell functions were
investigated. B cells at three distinct stages of differentiation were examined for
cortisol sensitivity. B lymphocyte responses were examined 1) during the early stage
of the precursor, 2) during the intermediate stage of differentiation associated with
Almost 600,000 people in the United States were treated for End Stage Renal Disease in 2010. A majority of those people received hemodialysis from central medical facilities. It has been reported a better treatment option for these patients would be realized if the patients had more frequent hemodialysis treatments. A...
Microchannel arrays are being developed across a wide spectrum of microfluidic applications including blood processing, fuel cells and thermal management among many others. Typical arrays are based on a flat laminated architecture produced in a vacuum hot press (VHP) through solid-state diffusion bonding. Due to the cylindrical nature of certain...
