Production of high stellar-mass primordial black holes in trapped inflation

Trapped inflation has been proposed to provide a successful inflation with a steep potential. We discuss the formation of primordial black holes in the trapped inflationary scenario. We show that primordial black holes are naturally produced during inflation with a steep trapping potential. In particular, we have given a recipe for an inflaton potential with which particle...

The Effect of Tenidap on Cytokines, Acute-Phase Proteins, and Virus Load in Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV)-Infected Patients: Correlation between Plasma HIV-1 RNA and Proinflammatory Cytokine Levels

Proinflammatory cytokines may be important in the pathogenesis of human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) disease. Tenidap decreases interleukin (IL)-6, IL-1, and tumor necrosis factor (TNF) production by peripheral blood mononuclear cells and decreases IL-6 plasma levels in rheumatoid arthritis patients. In this randomized double-blind study, 43 HIV-1-infected patients...
