  • The blastogenic response of peripheral blood lymphocytes (PBL) (8 cows) to capsular antigen extract of Staphylococcus aureus, PHA and LPS was measured in vitro using /sup 5/H-thymidine pulse labelling. isolated PBL were treated in vitro for 6-8 days with 10, 25 and 45 ng/ml cortisone. These concentrations simulate serum corticosteroid levels during environmental stress, acute clinical mastitis and ACTH therapy, respectively. To determine the minimal concentration of cortisone that would induce suppression, PBL were also incubated with increasing concentrations of cortisone starting at 10 pg/ml. All concentrations of cortisone caused a significant (P<0.01) depression of lymphocyte blastogenic response to S.more » aureus, PHA and LPS. Macrophage depletion experiments showed no macrophage suppressor effects. Both the blastogenic response of untreated peripheral blood lymphocytes to S. aureus, PHA and LPS and the degree to which that response was suppressed by cortisone differed significantly among cows. Results indicate that cortisone levels found during physiological stress and after therapeutic administration of ACTH can suppress lymphocyte function.« less
  • Factors involved in the diagnostic effectiveness of computed-radionuclide tomography are discussed. Each of the above factors is discussed with physical and instrumentation aspects exemplified by a positron transaxial tomograph, a generalized physiological model presented to demonstrate use of quantitative autoradiographic models for in vivo tomography and tomographic studies of human volunteers and patients using /sup 13/NH/sub 3/, /sup 11/CO and /sup 11/C-glucose to image blood perfusion, blood volume and metabolism in brain (/sup 68/Ga for blood brain barrier) and heart, and /sup 11/C-palmitic acid studies of dogs with myocardial infarction. These studies illustrate ability to implement quantitative studies of hemodynamicsmore » and metabolism; mathematical and physical factors are calculated to illustrate advantages and disadvantages of a true 3-dimensional positron tomograph.« less
  • The dissociation of heavy quarkonium seen in heavy-ion collisions is a phenomena that allows to extract information of the produced thermal medium. This was believed to be due to the screening of the static potential but recently perturbative computations and some lattice studies have pointed out the possibility of having an imaginary part of the potential that would also contribute to dissociation. In recent years a program to study heavy quarkonium with the use of non-relativistic effective field theories (EFTs) has been started, this allows to make the computations in a more systematic way by defining a more suitable powermore » counting and making it more difficult to miss necessary resummations. However until now these studies have been done assuming thermal equilibrium. In this work we will discuss what happens in the EFT formalism when heavy quarkonium is in a medium that is not in thermal equilibrium and what is the expected suppression when a medium with a time dependent effective temperature that follows Bjorken evolution is considered. This will be done adapting previous results from different temperature regimes.« less
