Sex hormones and immunity to infection by Sabra L Klein( )

11 editions published between 2009 and 2014 in English and held by 429 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book critically reviews the evolutionary origin and the functional mechanisms responsible for sexual dimorphism in response to infection. It emphasizes the value of examining responses in both males and females to improve our understanding about host-pathogen interactions in both sexes. The contributors are experts in their specific disciplines which range from microbiology and immunology to genetics, pathology, and evolutionary biology. The book aims at bringing insight to the treatment and management of infectious diseases; it delineates areas where knowledge is lacking and highlights future avenues of research
Sex and gender differences in infection and treatments for infectious diseases( )

7 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 261 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book provides an overview of the underlying sex-based and hormone-based differences in immunity, wound healing and pharmacokinetics, while also exploring how pregnancy affects immunity -- Font no determinada The second part of the book shows, for the first time in a single volume, the growing number of infectious diseases for which sex and gender differences are noted, identifies common as well as distinct mechanisms mediating these differences and illustrates how responses to treatments might differ between the sexes -- Font no determinada The awareness that males and females differ in their response to specific pathogens as well as to treatments for infectious diseases may yield sex-specific personalized treatments -- Font no determinada This book will be of interest to basic scientists and clinicians in the fields of microbiology, immunology and pharmacology -- Font no determinada Individuals working in academia, government and industry will also benefit from the information presented -- Font no determinada

Submarine : a novel by Joe Dunthorne( Recording )

3 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in English and Spanish and held by 71 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This hilarious coming-of-age novel follows Oliver Tate as he tries to find out why his father sometimes stays in bed for days at a time, why his mother is getting surfing lessons - and probably more - from a hippy-looking twonk, and as he tries to lose his virginity before it becomes legal - in just over a year

À 15 ans, Oliver Tate a deux gros problèmes : il rêve de coucher avec sa petite amie et sa mère est en train de se laisser séduire par un gourou. Pour empêcher le pire et réussir le meilleur, Oliver n'a que deux atouts : un vocabulaire incroyablement riche et une immense confiance en lui

Generalised Parton Distributions : from phenomenological approaches to Dyson-Schwinger equations by Cédric Mezrag( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This study is devoted to generalised parton distributions (GPDs). First, the main properties of GPDs are given to the reader. One can stress the so-called support properties and the polynomiality property. The latter is automatically fulfiled when modeling GPDs from double distributions (DDs), GPDs being considered as the Radon transform of DDs. In the scalar case, two DDs denoted by F and G are required to describe the GPD H. Due to the integral relation existing between H on one hand, and F and G on the other hand, F and G are not defnied unambiguously. This ambiguity is exploited in the present work in order to develop a new phenomenological parametrisation. Using the Radyushkin Ansatz, it is then possible get a realistic model of GPDs, and to compare it with available experimental data. In the present case, two types of models, one neglecting the GPD E, the other taking it into account are compared with the Jlab Hall A DVCS data. In the former cae, one can notice a better flexibility allowing to better reproduced the beam-helicity independent cross sections. In the latter one, only the GPD E is deeply modified, and thus the comparison with available data does not change significantly with respect to previous parametrisations. Only data more sensitive to E will allow one to selet the most relevant parametrisation.In order to go beyond phenomenological parametrisations, a first step has been done toward a dynamical description of hadron structure. Using the Dyson-Schwinger equations, it has been possible to compute analytically the pion GPD within the triangle diagram approximation. The comparison with available data (Form factor and PDF) appears to be very good. Nevertheless, this first model does not fulfil all the required properties. Especially the soft pion theorem, which corresponds to a specific kinematical limit. It has been shown in this work that this is due to the violation of the Axial-Vector Ward-Takahashi identity, and that the triangle approximation is sufficient to ensure the sof pion theorem. Still it violates the exchange symmetry x, 1-x, and thus additional terms, previously neglected, are taken into account. It is then possible to compute the probability density to find a quark at a given position in the transverse plan carrying a given momentum fraction. Finally, perspective on lightcone computations are given in the last chapter
