Toll-like receptor activation as a biomarker in traumatically injured patients
(Journal of Surgical Research, 2018-11-01)
© 2018 Elsevier Inc. Background: Surgical insult and trauma have been shown to cause dysregulation of the immune and inflammatory responses. Interaction of damage-associated molecular patterns (DAMPs) with toll-like receptors ...
Functional Relevance of Improbable Antibody Mutations for HIV Broadly Neutralizing Antibody Development.
(Cell host & microbe, 2018-06)
HIV-1 broadly neutralizing antibodies (bnAbs) require high levels of activation-induced cytidine deaminase (AID)-catalyzed somatic mutations for optimal neutralization potency. Probable mutations occur at sites of frequent ...
Acute Myeloid Leukemia After Olaparib Treatment in Metastatic Castration-Resistant Prostate Cancer.
(Clinical genitourinary cancer, 2017-12)
The Risk of Cardiac Device-Related Infection in Bacteremic Patients Is Species Specific: Results of a 12-Year Prospective Cohort.
(Open forum infectious diseases, 2017-01)
The species-specific risk of cardiac device-related infection (CDRI) among bacteremic patients is incompletely understood.We conducted a prospective cohort study of hospitalized patients from October 2002 to December 2014 ...
Differences between completely physically inactive and low active older men and their response to an exercise intervention: the Veterans LIFE study.
(Healthy aging research, 2015-01)
Physical activity interventions typically do not report behavioral changes in activity sub-groups. The aim of this study was to compare baseline differences and changes in physical activity between truly physically inactive ...
The Warrior Wellness Study: A Randomized Controlled Exercise Trial for Older Veterans with PTSD.
(Translational journal of the American College of Sports Medicine, 2018-03)
Posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) affects up to 30% of military veterans. Older veterans, many of whom have lived with PTSD symptoms for several decades, report a number of negative health outcomes. Despite the demonstrated ...
Tenascin-C is an innate broad-spectrum, HIV-1-neutralizing protein in breast milk.
(Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America, 2013-11)
Achieving an AIDS-free generation will require elimination of postnatal transmission of HIV-1 while maintaining the nutritional and immunologic benefits of breastfeeding for infants in developing regions. Maternal/infant ...
The unfolded protein response triggers selective mRNA release from the endoplasmic reticulum.
The unfolded protein response (UPR) is a stress response program that reprograms cellular translation and gene expression in response to proteotoxic stress in the endoplasmic reticulum (ER). One of the primary means by which ...
Differential Expression of Coding and Long Noncoding RNAs in Keratoconus-Affected Corneas.
(Investigative ophthalmology & visual science, 2018-06)
Keratoconus (KC) is the most common corneal ectasia. We aimed to determine the differential expression of coding and long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs) in human corneas affected with KC.From the corneas of 10 KC patients and ...
Looking beyond the exome: a phenotype-first approach to molecular diagnostic resolution in rare and undiagnosed diseases.
(Genetics in medicine : official journal of the American College of Medical Genetics, 2018-04)
PurposeTo describe examples of missed pathogenic variants on whole-exome sequencing (WES) and the importance of deep phenotyping for further diagnostic testing.MethodsGuided by phenotypic information, three children with ...
