Author(s) :Aaron J. Smith, John Oertle, Dino Prato

ABSTRACT

Adoptive immunotherapy, the therapeutic infusion of ex vivo activated cancer-fighting white blood cells that was pioneered by Dr. Steven Rosenberg over 30 years ago, has become more widespread due to outstanding published research documenting the clinical efficacy of this strategy. Based on the well-established in vivo functions of NK and NKT cells, their integral role in the efficacy Continue reading

Preparation of Microcapsules Containing Triple Core Materials with Interfacial Condensation Reaction

Bookmark and Share

Author(s) :Yoshinari Taguchi, Mikihiko Aoki, Masato Tanaka

ABSTRACT

In this manuscript, we describe the novel method for preparing the microcapsules containing α-tocopherol oil droplets as the first core material, calcium chloride powder as the second core material and the fine water droplets as the third core material by the interfacial condensation reaction between hydroxyl propyl methyl cellulose and tannic acid. The interfacial condensation reaction was performed between hydroxyl Continue reading

Snow Cover Area Estimation Using Radar and Optical Satellite Information

Bookmark and Share
Author(s) :Ana Paula Salcedo, Marisa G. Cogliati

ABSTRACT

Obtaining the seasonal variation of snow cover in areas of the Argentinian Andes is important for hydrological studies and can facilitate proper planning of water resources, with regard to irrigation, supply, flood attenuation and hydroelectricity. Remote sensors that work in the visible and infrared wavelength range are operational tools for monitoring the snow in clear skies. However, microwave satellites are able to obtain data regardless of atmospheric conditions. Continue reading

Solvability of the Economic Input-Output Equation by Time Irreversibility

Bookmark and Share

Author:Shinji Miura

ABSTRACT

This paper reinterprets the economic input-output equation as a description of a realized situation without considering decision making. This paper uses the equation that the self-sufficiency rate is added to the Leontief type, and discusses its solvability. The equation has a unique solution if and only if each part of the relevant society satisfies the space-time openness condition. Continue reading
