Vanilloid receptor TRPV1-mediated phosphorylation of ERK in murine adjuvant arthritis
(Osteoarthritis and Cartilage, 2009-02)
Influence of the vanilloid receptor TRPV1 on the activation of spinal cord glia in mouse models of pain
(Experimental Neurology, 2009-12)
The enduring impact of transient emotions on decision making
(Organizational Behavior and Human Decision Processes, 2009-05-01)
People often do not realize they are being influenced by an incidental emotional state. As a result, decisions based on a fleeting incidental emotion can become the basis for future decisions and hence outlive the original ...
Mitochondrial mutations in adenoid cystic carcinoma of the salivary glands.
(PLoS One, 2009-12-30)
BACKGROUND: The MitoChip v2.0 resequencing array is an array-based technique allowing for accurate and complete sequencing of the mitochondrial genome. No studies have investigated mitochondrial mutation in salivary gland ...
Development of universal antidotes to control aptamer activity.
(Nat Med, 2009-10)
With an ever increasing number of people taking numerous medications, the need to safely administer drugs and limit unintended side effects has never been greater. Antidote control remains the most direct means to counteract ...
Coordinated activation of candidate proto-oncogenes and cancer testes antigens via promoter demethylation in head and neck cancer and lung cancer.
(PLoS One, 2009)
BACKGROUND: Epigenetic alterations have been implicated in the pathogenesis of solid tumors, however, proto-oncogenes activated by promoter demethylation have been sporadically reported. We used an integrative method to ...
Substance abuse, treatment needs and access among female sex workers and non-sex workers in Pretoria, South Africa.
(Subst Abuse Treat Prev Policy, 2009-05-27)
BACKGROUND: This study examined cross-sectional data collected from substance-using female sex workers (FSW) and non-sex workers (non-SW) in Pretoria, South Africa, who entered a randomized controlled trial. METHODS: Women ...
Missing data in randomized clinical trials for weight loss: scope of the problem, state of the field, and performance of statistical methods.
(PLoS One, 2009-08-13)
BACKGROUND: Dropouts and missing data are nearly-ubiquitous in obesity randomized controlled trails, threatening validity and generalizability of conclusions. Herein, we meta-analytically evaluate the extent of missing data, ...
Common genetic variation and the control of HIV-1 in humans.
(PLoS Genet, 2009-12)
To extend the understanding of host genetic determinants of HIV-1 control, we performed a genome-wide association study in a cohort of 2,554 infected Caucasian subjects. The study was powered to detect common genetic variants ...
Genome-wide analyses of exonic copy number variants in a family-based study point to novel autism susceptibility genes.
(PLoS Genet, 2009-06)
The genetics underlying the autism spectrum disorders (ASDs) is complex and remains poorly understood. Previous work has demonstrated an important role for structural variation in a subset of cases, but has lacked the resolution ...
