Conclusion: These data indicate that, in their free unesterified form, sterols and stanols lower plasma LDL cholesterol equivalently in hypercholesterolemic persons by suppressing cholesterol absorption.

Previous investigators[13] have demonstrated that PBMC and whole blood perform similarly when assessing antigen-specific responses in both CD4+ and CD8+ T cell subsets, with CFC assays, when no sample shipment was involved. However, as discussed above, PBMC are the standard sample used for clinical studies and as such this study was done to compare the PBMC processing methods. It is apparent from the data presented here that CPT-processed PBMC performed equivalently to Ficoll-processed PBMC, especially with regard to the fact that no matter which process was used, samples did not lose functional activity upon cryopreservation and thawing.

With fresh samples, Ficoll-processed PBMC demonstrated significantly better viability as compared to CPT-processed PBMC. With cryopreserved samples, CPT-processed PBMC demonstrated better viability as compared to Ficoll-processed PBMC but the difference was not significant. Fresh and post-cryopreservation recoveries were not significantly different between the two processing methods. We also conclude that whether fresh or cryopreserved PBMC are used, CPT is an efficient system for the collection of functionally active HIV+ PBMC as there was only one instance (fresh CPT vs. cryopreserved CPT for CD8- T cells) in which the results vary significantly. The results of this comparative study indicate that PBMC prepared by either method perform equivalently and that the use of CPT to prepare PBMC from whole blood could be a viable alternative to using Ficoll density gradient separation when samples are collected at multiple study sites and sent to a central location for processing and evaluation.

A linear system is equivalently represented by two sets of state equations.X=AX+BU and W=CW+DUThe eigen values of the representations are also computed as [λ] and [μ]. Which one of the following statements is true ?

N2 - A conference matrix of order $n$ is an $n\times n$ matrix $C$ with diagonal entries $0$ and off-diagonal entries $\pm 1$ satisfying $CC^\top=(n-1)I$. If $C$ is symmetric, then $C$ has a symmetric spectrum $\Sigma$ (that is, $\Sigma=-\Sigma$) and eigenvalues $\pm\sqrtn-1$. We show that many principal submatrices of $C$ also have symmetric spectrum, which leads to examples of Seidel matrices of graphs (or, equivalently, adjacency matrices of complete signed graphs) with a symmetric spectrum. In addition, we show that some Seidel matrices with symmetric spectrum can be characterized by this construction.

Research has highlighted potential differences in the phenotypic and clinical presentation of autism spectrum conditions across sex. Furthermore, the measures utilised to evaluate autism spectrum conditions may be biased towards the male autism phenotype. It is important to determine whether these instruments measure the autism phenotype consistently in autistic men and women. This study evaluated the factor structure of the Autism Spectrum Quotient Short Form in a large sample of autistic adults. It also systematically explored specific sex differences at the item level, to determine whether the scale assesses the autism phenotype equivalently across males and females. Factor analyses were conducted among 265 males and 285 females. A two-factor structure consisting of a social behaviour and numbers and patterns factor was consistent across groups, indicating that the latent autism phenotype is similar among both autistic men and women. Subtle differences were observed on two social behaviour item thresholds of the Autism Spectrum Quotient Short Form, with women reporting scores more in line with the scores expected in autism on these items than men. However, these differences were not substantial. This study showed that the Autism Spectrum Quotient Short Form detects autistic traits equivalently in males and females and is not biased towards the male autism phenotype.
