The danger theory and its application to Artificial Immune Systems (2002)
Conference Proceeding
Aickelin, U., & Cayzer, S. (2002). The danger theory and its application to Artificial Immune Systems. In J. Timmis, & P. J. Bentley (Eds.), ICARIS 2002: 1st International Conference on Artificial Immune Systems, 141-148

Over the last decade, a new idea challenging the classical self-non-self viewpoint has become popular amongst immunologists. It is called the Danger Theory. In this conceptual paper, we look at this theory from the perspective of Artificial Immune Sy... Read More

Poverty, caring and older age (2002)
Journal Article
Argyle, E. (2002). Poverty, caring and older age

Due to the high incidence of disability amongst their contemporaries, older people are likely to be involved in informal caring relationships. Due to the limited nature of post-retirement incomes, such carers are also likely to be relatively poor. In... Read More

Since isolates of Hymenolepis nana infecting humans and rodents are morphologically indistinguishable, the only way they can be reliably identified is by comparing the parasite in each host using molecular tools. In the current study, isolates of H.... Read More
