Th1 related chemokines CCL3 and CCL5 and Th2 related CCL4 as ligands of the receptor CCR5 contribute to disease development in animal models of type 1 diabetes. In humans, no data are available addressing the role of these chemokines regarding disease progression and remission. We investigated longitudinally circulating concentrations of CCR5 ligands of 256 newly diagnosed patients with type 1 diabetes. CCR5 ligands were differentially associated with beta-cell function and clinical remission. CCL5 was decreased in remitters and positively associated with HbA1c suggestive of a Th1 associated progression of the disease. Likewise, CCL3 was negatively related to C-peptide and positively associated with the beta-cell stress marker proinsulin but increased in remitters. CCL4 associated with decreased beta-cell stress shown by negative association with proinsulin. Blockage of chemokines or antagonism of CCR5 by therapeutic agents such as maraviroc may provide a new therapeutic target to ameliorate disease progression in type 1 diabetes. [less ▲]

The present study reports on computational fluid dynamics in the case of severe renal artery stenosis (RAS). An anatomically realistic model of a renal artery was reconstructed from CT scans, and used to conduct CFD simulations of blood flow across RAS. The recently developed Shear Stress Transport turbulence model was pivotally applied in the simulation of blood flow in the region of interest. Blood flow was studied in vivo under the presence of RAS and subsequently in simulated cases before the development of RAS, and after endovascular stent implantation. The pressure gradients in the RAS case were many orders of magnitude larger than in the healthy case. The presence of RAS increased flow resistance, which led to considerably lower blood flow rates. A simulated stent in place of the RAS decreased the flow resistance at levels proportional to, and even lower than, the simulated healthy case without the RAS. The wall shear stresses, differential pressure profiles, and net forces exerted on the surface of the atherosclerotic plaque at peak pulse were shown to be of relevant high distinctiveness, so as to be considered potential indicators of hemodynamically significant RAS.

We have fabricated and characterized metal–semiconductor–metal (MSM) photodetectors based on lowtemperature-grown GaAs with alloyed (i.e., ohmic-type) contacts. The annealed contacts optimize the electric field distribution inside the photodetector structure which results in an up-to-200% responsivity increase of the devices, compared to conventional MSM detectors with standard nonalloyed (Schottky-type) metallization fabricated on identical material. The improved MSM device with alloyed contacts shows more than three times larger output amplitude at illumination with a 100-fs Ti : sapphire laser, compared to the nonalloyed devices, without degradation of detector speed.

This paper explores the various governance models for financially distressed firms. We offer a new typology of major bankruptcy models and provide a connection between this bankruptcy law puzzle and the variables depicting the governance of healthy firms in order to shed light on two topics: (1) the factors that the lawyer should consider before removing its national bankruptcy law, and (2) the risks associated with each bankruptcy model according to the economic literature on bankruptcy law. Our final aim is to test whether the various bankruptcy models detailed in the paper perform in separate economic and legal environments. [less ▲]

We give the distribution functions, the expected values, and the moments of linear combinations of lattice polynomials from the uniform distribution. Linear combinations of lattice polynomials, which include weighted sums, linear combinations of order statistics, and lattice polynomials, are actually those continuous functions that reduce to linear functions on each simplex of the standard triangulation of the unit cube. They are mainly used in aggregation theory, combinatorial optimization, and game theory, where they are known as discrete Choquet integrals and Lovász extensions. [less ▲]

Es ist eine im wissenschaftlichen Feld der Sozialen Arbeit inzwischen gängige Meinung, die eigene Wissensproduktion als 'sozialwissenschaftlich gewendet' zu bezeichnen (vgl. bspw. Gängler 1995, S. 29; Niemeyer 2003, S. 22). Diese Einschätzung soll im Rahmen des vorliegenden Beitrags angezweifelt werden. Wir beziehen uns dabei insbesondere auf den Schauplatz der sozialpädagogischen Theoriebildung. Unsere These lautet: Die aktuelle Theoriediskussion der Sozialen Arbeit zeichnet sich durch einen Modus der Argumentation aus, der sich 'ontologisch' plausibilisiert. Gelingt es, diese These zu untermauern, so stellt dies u. E. entschieden die herrschende Meinung zur Sozialwissenschaftlichkeit der Wissensproduktion in der Sozialen Arbeit in Frage. [less ▲]
