The scientists, led by Dr Dale Umetsu, from Harvard Medical School in Boston, US, wrote: "Our results suggest that infection with certain micro-organisms can prevent the subsequent development of asthma and allergy by expanding the relative proportion of a specific subset of NKT
cells, thus providing an immunological mechanism for the hygiene hypothesis."
The study specifically focuses on NKT
cells, one of the first responders to many infections.
According to NKT
, Kara is an internationally experienced executive in the power distribution industry, with in-depth market knowledge and technology insight, which will further strengthen NKT
's position as a strong partner in its key markets.
The presence of these receptors is not exclusive to NK cells, as NKT
cells also express these similar receptors .
cells perform beneficial functions such as killing tumour cells and virus-infected cells.
According to NKT
, the cable system delivered by it for Ostwind 2 comprises of three lots constituting the entire project.
The transaction, which will provide NKT
with a factory in Falun, Sweden, is anticipated to close at the start of the third quarter, subject to regulatory clearance.
The team also found that the evasive blocking tactic was virtually exclusive to a specific protein, called CD1d, needed to activate the NKT
Also, the PCA is a key step towards a final order which is conditional upon final contract negotiations and the project owners providing NKT
a notice to proceed.
The DKK3.8bn (USD682m/EUR511m) deal was announced on 3 February, Subsea 7 said, adding that NKT
Flexibles has already been transferred to NOV.
