Modulation of the fish immune system by hormones (2000)
Journal Article
Harris, J., & Bird, D. J. (2000). Modulation of the fish immune system by hormones. Veterinary Immunology and Immunopathology, 77(3-4), 163-176. https://doi.org/10.1016/S0165-2427%2800%2900235-X

Immune-neuroendocrine interactions in fish, as in mammals, have become a focus of considerable interest, with the modulation of immune responses by hormones receiving particular attention. Cortisol, growth hormone (GH), prolactin (PRL), reproductive... Read More about Modulation of the fish immune system by hormones.

Voltammetric behavior and trace determination of lead at a mercury-free screen-printed carbon electrode (2000)
Journal Article
Honeychurch, K. C., Hart, J. P., & Cowell, D. C. (2000). Voltammetric behavior and trace determination of lead at a mercury-free screen-printed carbon electrode. Electroanalysis, 12(3), 171-177. https://doi.org/10.1002...-ELAN171%3E3.0.CO%3B2-Q

Abstract Screen-printed carbon electrodes (SPCEs), without chemical modification, have been investigated as disposable sensors for the measurement of trace levels of Pb. Cyclic voltammetry was employed to elucidate the electrochemical behavior of Pb...

Visualisation and categorisation of respiratory mechanism using self organising maps (2000)
Journal Article
Black, A. M., Caleb, P., Steuer, M., Caleb-Solly, P., Drummond, G. B., & Black, A. M. S. (2000). Visualisation and categorisation of respiratory mechanism using self organising maps. IEE Proceedings Science Measurement and Technology, 147(6), 339-344. https://doi.org/10.1049/ip-smt%3A20000856

In post-operative patients it is sometimes necessary to push morphine-like analgesics to their limits for pain relief. Unfortunately, this can sometimes bring a significant risk of disrupting the control of breathing, and of precipitating life-threat...

Quality in project environments: A nonconventional agenda (2000)
Journal Article
Cicmil, S. (2000). Quality in project environments: A nonconventional agenda. International Journal of Quality and Reliability Management, 17(4), 554-570. https://doi.org/10.1108/02656710010298599

A growing body of evidence indicates the emerging applications of projects and their role in modern businesses. The agreement over project success criteria and delivery of a quality product still remains a key managerial concern. Underlying theoretic...

Development of a sensor system for the early detection of soft rot in stored potato tubers (2000)
Journal Article
Spencer-Phillips, P. T., Ratcliffe, N. M., Gunson, H. E., Ewen, R. J., De Lacy Costello, B. P., de Lacy Costello, B., …Spencer-Phillips, P. T. (2000). Development of a sensor system for the early detection of soft rot in stored potato tubers. Measurement Science and Technology, 11(12), 1685-1691. https://doi.org/10.1088/0957-0233/11/12/305

A number of sensor types were fabricated and tested for their electrical resistance changes to compounds known to be evolved by potato tubers with soft rot caused by the bacterium Erwinia carotovora. On the basis of these tests, three sensors were se... Read More about Development of a sensor system for the early detection of soft rot in stored potato tubers.

A Review of the Effects of Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation upon the RIII Nociceptive Reflex (2000)
Journal Article

Marxism and Realism: A Materialistic Application of Realism in the Social Sciences (2000)
Book
Creaven, S. (2000). Marxism and Realism: A Materialistic Application of Realism in the Social Sciences. Routledge

This book rethinks Marx's sociology as a form of realist social theory, extending Roy Bhaskar's philosophical realism into the social sciences. By constructing historical materialism as realist social theory, it becomes possible to resolve many long...
