Who was Saint Patrick? by E. A Thompson( Book )
18 editions published between 1985 and 1999 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,004 libraries worldwide
"Everyone knows of St. Patrick, but what do we know about him? Simply that it was he who 'converted the Irish to Christianity'. The strange fact is that for two hundred years or so after his death, although his name was remembered with respect, everything else about him was forgotten." "E. A. Thompson pieces together the story of his life, drawing his evidence from the only real clues that exist, Patrick's own writings, not from the later Lives. He reveals him as coming from a well-to-do nominally Christian family in Britain, being captured by Irish raiders and forced into slavery in Co Mayo, converting to a most earnest Christianity, and eventually escaping from Ireland to the fulfilment of his calling. As a bishop, he is shown to have been a man of profound originality, and his writings - his Confession and his Letter to Coroticus - further display his character. It is no surprise that a host of legends became attached to his name, and the biography is completed with a look at some of those early legends."--Jacket

The Huns by E. A Thompson( Book )
15 editions published between 1996 and 2006 in 3 languages and held by 90 libraries worldwide
This narrative of the Huns in Europe documents their history from the first attacks on the Goths north of the Black Sea to the collapse of their central European empire after the death of Attila. The author reconstructs the Huns' campaigns in detail, revealing their successes and failures against the non-Roman peoples of central and eastern Europe and their many invasions of the eastern and western halves of the Roman Empire. The narrative is punctuated by chapters that explain the sudden rise and equally sudden fall of the Huns through an analysis of the impact of Roman wealth on the original Hun social structures.--Adapted from publisher description

Development of Integrase-Like Catalytic Antibodies for Breast Cancer ( Book )
4 editions published between 1999 and 2001 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
This project aims to develop catalytic antibodies that will allow efficient DNA transfer by promoting DNA site-specific recombination. Such antibodies may provide a very powerful means to manipulate DNA transfer at defined sequences with obvious implications for gene therapy of breast cancer. In order to engineer enzymes that catalyze the recombination, we immunized mice with a synthetic DNA Holiday structure and screened over 5,000 hybridomas. We had candidate clones that seemed to either resolve or bind to the structure in primary screenings. Unfortunately we have not been able to isolate clones that possess the properties after expansion and purification. For constructing fab expression library we encountered difficulties in amplifying Fab cDNA from immunized mouse splenic mRNA. We have made a few primary libraries. We are in the beginning of screening the libraries for the Fabs that resolve the structure. This is a very technical and labor challenging project. I feel that our resources are limited to successfully complete the project. Successful completion of this project will provide a new technology of DNA transfer for both biomedical research and therapeutic purposes
