Journal Article
Uecker, M. (2002). Missverständnisse, Rollenspiele, Double Binds: Kommunikation und Bewusstsein im Werk Birgit Vanderbekes. German Life and Letters, 5(3), doi:10.1111/1468-0483.00232

Abweichend von der dominierenden Strategie der Literaturkritik, die das Werk Birgit Vanderbekes in erster Linie auf seine soziologische Repräsentativität für Entwicklungen der deutschen Gesellschaft seit den fünfziger Jahren untersucht hat, konzentri... Read More

New treatments for atopic dermatitis (2002)
Journal Article
Williams, H. (2002). New treatments for atopic dermatitis

Atopic dermatitis now affects 15% to 20% of chil­ dren in developed countries, and prevalence in cities in developing countries undergoing rapid demographic changes is quickly following suit.1 Most cases of atopic dermatitis in a given community... Read More

Local variation in endoparasite intensities of bank voles (Clethrionomys glareolus )from ecologically similar sites: morphometric and endocrine correlates (2002)
Journal Article
morphometric and endocrine correlates. Journal of Helminthology, 76(2), doi:10.1079/JOH2001109

Much interest has centred recently on the role of adaptive trade-offs between the immune system and other components of life history in determining resistance and parasite intensities among hosts. Steroid hormones, particularly glucocorticoids and se... Read More

A molecular phylogeny of nuclear and mitochondrial sequences in Hymenolepis nana (Cestoda) supports the existence of a cryptic species (2002)
Journal Article
the existence of a cryptic species. Parasitology, 125(6), doi:10.1017/S0031182002002366

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

The interleukin-10 – 1082 G/A polymorphism: allele frequency in different populations and functional significance (2002)
Journal Article
Rees, L., Wood, N., Gillespie, K., Lai, K., Gaston, K., & Mathieson, P. (2002). The interleukin-10 – 1082 G/A polymorphism: allele frequency in different populations and functional significance. Cellular and Molecular Life Sciences, 59(3), 560-569. doi:10.1007/s00018-002-8448-0

Genotypic variation in the human interleukin-10 (IL-10) promoter may account for marked inter-individual variation in IL-10 production and may influence susceptibility to autoimmune diseases. The G/A polymorphism at position -1082 has been linked to... Read More

Failure to infect laboratory rodent hosts with human isolates of Rodentolepis(= Hymenolepis) nana (2002)
Journal Article
MacNish, M., Morgan, U., Behnke, J. M., & Thompson, R. (2002). Failure to infect laboratory rodent hosts with human isolates of Rodentolepis(= Hymenolepis) nana. Journal of Helminthology, 76(1), doi:10.1079/JOH200198

Confusion exists over the species status and host-specificity of the tapeworm Rodentolepis (= Hymenolepis) nana. It has been described as one species, R. nana, found in both humans and rodents. Others have identified a subspecies; R. nana var. frater... Read More

'On the Effects of Idiotypic Interactions for Recommendation Communities in Artificial Immune Systems' (2002)
Conference Proceeding
Cayzer, S., & Aickelin, U. (2002). 'On the Effects of Idiotypic Interactions for Recommendation Communities in Artificial Immune Systems'

It has previously been shown that a recommender based on immune system idiotypic principles can outperform one based on correlation alone. This paper reports the results of work in progress, where we undertake some investigations into the nature of t... Read More

A Recommender System based on the Immune Network (2002)
Conference Proceeding
Cayzer, S., & Aickelin, U. (2002). A Recommender System based on the Immune Network

Abstract-The immune system is a complex biological system with a highly distributed, adaptive and self-organising nature. This paper presents an artificial immune system (AIS) that exploits some of these characteristics and is applied to the task of... Read More

The NumbersWithNames Program (2002)
Conference Proceeding
Colton, S., & Dennis, L. A. (2002). The NumbersWithNames Program

We present the NumbersWithNames program which performs data-mining on the Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences to find interesting conjectures in number theory. The program forms conjectures by finding empirical relationships between a sequence chosen... Read More

In vivo models of lung neutrophil activation. Comparison of mice and hamsters (2002)
Journal Article
Corteling, R., Wyss, D., & Trifilieff, A. (2002). In vivo models of lung neutrophil activation. Comparison of mice and hamsters. BMC Pharmacology, 2(1),

BACKGROUND: Evidence suggests that both the migration and activation of neutrophils into the airway is of importance in pathological conditions such as pulmonary emphysema. In the present study, we describe in vivo models of lung neutrophil infiltrat... Read More

A Comparison of two Proof Critics: Power vs. Robustness (2002)
Conference Proceeding
Dennis, L. A., & Bundy, A. (2002). A Comparison of two Proof Critics: Power vs. Robustness. In C. A. Munoz, V. A. Carreno, & S. Tahar (Eds.),

Proof critics are a technology from the proof planning paradigm. They examine failed proof attempts in order to extract information which can be used to generate a patch which will allow the proof to go through. We consider the proof of the $quot;wh... Read More

Pharmacogenetics, pharmacogenomics and airway disease (2002)
Journal Article
Hall, I. P. (2002). Pharmacogenetics, pharmacogenomics and airway disease. Respiratory Research, 3(1),

The availability of a draft sequence for the human genome will revolutionise research into airway disease. This review deals with two of the most important areas impinging on the treatment of patients: pharmacogenetics and pharmacogenomics. Considera... Read More

Mapping and Displaying Structural Transformations between XML and PDF (2002)
Conference Proceeding
Hardy, M. R. B., & Brailsford, D. F. (2002). Mapping and Displaying Structural Transformations between XML and PDF. In J. Maletic, R. Furuta, & E. Munson (Eds.),

Documents are often marked up in XML-based tagsets to delineate major structural components such as headings, paragraphs, figure captions and so on, without much regard to their eventual displayed appearance. And yet these same abstract documents, af... Read More

Using Needs Assessment to Understand Continuing Disability in Patients with Enduring Mental Illness. Implications for Considerations of Service Development (2002)
Journal Article
Middleton, H., Adeniran, R., Brewin, C. R., Brady, C., Duggan, C., Hopkins, N., …Walton, M. (2002). Using Needs Assessment to Understand Continuing Disability in Patients with Enduring Mental Illness. Implications for Considerations of Service Development. Journal of Mental Health, 11,

Particular strengths of the MRC Needs for Care Assessment Schedule have been used to investigate the treatment status of patients with persistent psychiatric disability in ways that other needs assessment tools are unable to. One hundred and seventy-... Read More

An indirect genetic algorithm for set covering problems (2002)
Journal Article
Aickelin, U. (2002). An indirect genetic algorithm for set covering problems. Journal of the Operational Research Society, 53(10), 1118-1126 . doi:10.1057/palgrave.jors.2601317

This paper presents a new type of genetic algorithm for the set covering problem. It differs from previous evolutionary approaches first because it is an indirect algorithm, i.e. the actual solutions are found by an external decoder function. The gen... Read More
