A significant portion of the carbon dioxide emissions that have been shown to cause global warming are due to household energy consumption and traffic. EcoIsland is a computer system aimed at persuading and assisting individual families in changing their lifestyle patterns in a way that reduces CO 2 emissions. The system builds on our earlier work on persuasive ubiquitous computing applications, and applies ideas from behaviorism, social psychology and emissions trading to attempt to motivate

Emergency Caesarean Section Saved Both an Anti-MuSK Antibody-positive Myasthenia Gravis Mother with Pregnancy-induced Hypertension and Her Premature Baby

We herein report the case of a 46-year-old pregnant woman with anti-muscle specific kinase (MuSK) antibody-positive myasthenia gravis (MG) who showed pregnancy-induced hypertension and developed respiratory failure at 30 weeks and 5 days of pregnancy, and who underwent an emergency caesarean section (CS). Her MG symptoms gradually improved in the subsequent weeks. The premature baby with positive MuSK antibodies was successfully delivered, but the male baby required temporary artificial

The present case suggests that an emergency CS could rescue both the mother, who was in critical condition, and the prematurely born baby, even when suffering from acute respiratory insufficiency. A 43-year-old woman occasionally noticed double vision and bilateral eyelid ptosis, but otherwise had no particular past medical or familial history. She was diagnosed with dysarthria and dysphagia at 44 years of age. She became pregnant for the first time when she was 46, but was admitted to her previous hospital due to a worsening of dysarthria and dysphagia at 20 weeks (w) of pregnancy. A blood ex-

In secondary lymphoid organs, development and homeostasis of stromal cells such as podoplanin (Pdpn)-positive fibroblastic reticular cells (FRCs) are regulated by hematopoietic cells, but the cellular and molecular mechanisms of such regulation have remained unclear. Here we show that ablation of either signal regulatory protein α (SIRPα), an Ig superfamily protein, or its ligand CD47 in conventional dendritic cells (cDCs) markedly reduced the number of CD4 + cDCs as well as that of Pdpn + FRCs

Such ablation also impaired the survival of FRCs as well as the production by CD4 + cDCs of tumor necrosis factor receptor (TNFR) ligands, including TNF-α, which was shown to promote the proliferation and survival of Pdpn + FRCs. CD4 + cDCs thus regulate the steady-state homeostasis of FRCs in the adult spleen via the production of TNFR ligands, with the CD47-SIRPα interaction in cDCs likely being indispensable for such regulation. dendritic cell | fibroblastic reticular cell | signal regulatory protein α | CD47 | tumor necrosis factor-α

Signal regulatory protein α (SIRPα), is an immunoglobulin superfamily protein that is predominantly expressed in macrophages and dendritic cells (DCs), especially CD4 + conventional DCs (cDCs). In this study, we demonstrated that, in addition to the reduced number of CD4 + cDCs, the number of T cells was significantly decreased in the spleen of Sirpa-/-mice, in which full-length of SIRPα protein was systemically ablated. The size of the T cell zone was markedly reduced in the spleen of

Consistently, the abundance of fibroblastic reticular cells (FRCs), a subset of stromal cells in the T cell zone, was markedly reduced in the spleen of Sirpa −/− mice compared with Sirpa f/f mice. Moreover, we demonstrated that the mRNA expression of Lymphotoxin (LT) α, LTβ, and LIGHT was significantly reduced in the spleen of Sirpa −/− mice. These data thus suggest that SIRPα is essential for steady-state homeostasis of T cells and FRCs in the spleen.
