Energy recovery in individuals with knee osteoarthritis.
(Osteoarthritis Cartilage, 2014-06)
OBJECTIVE: Pathological gaits have been shown to limit transfer between potential (PE) and kinetic (KE) energy during walking, which can increase locomotor costs. The purpose of this study was to examine whether energy exchange ...
Chikungunya and dengue fever among hospitalized febrile patients in northern Tanzania.
(Am J Trop Med Hyg, 2012-01)
Consecutive febrile admissions were enrolled at two hospitals in Moshi, Tanzania. Confirmed acute Chikungunya virus (CHIKV), Dengue virus (DENV), and flavivirus infection were defined as a positive polymerase chain reaction ...
Association of a peripheral blood metabolic profile with coronary artery disease and risk of subsequent cardiovascular events.
(Circ Cardiovasc Genet, 2010-04)
BACKGROUND: Molecular tools may provide insight into cardiovascular risk. We assessed whether metabolites discriminate coronary artery disease (CAD) and predict risk of cardiovascular events. METHODS AND RESULTS: We performed ...
An alphavirus vector overcomes the presence of neutralizing antibodies and elevated numbers of Tregs to induce immune responses in humans with advanced cancer.
(J Clin Invest, 2010-09)
Therapeutic anticancer vaccines are designed to boost patients' immune responses to tumors. One approach is to use a viral vector to deliver antigen to in situ DCs, which then activate tumor-specific T cell and antibody ...
Investigation of sliced body volume (SBV) as respiratory surrogate.
(Journal of applied clinical medical physics, 2013-01-07)
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the sliced body volume (SBV) as a respiratory surrogate by comparing with the real-time position management (RPM) in phantom and patient cases. Using the SBV surrogate, breathing ...
