Stable ischemic heart disease in the older adults.
(J Geriatr Cardiol, 2016-02)
The genomic analysis of erythrocyte microRNA expression in sickle cell diseases.
(PLoS One, 2008-06-04)
BACKGROUND: Since mature erythrocytes are terminally differentiated cells without nuclei and organelles, it is commonly thought that they do not contain nucleic acids. In this study, we have re-examined this issue by analyzing ...
Critical role of TNF-α in cerebral aneurysm formation and progression to rupture.
(J Neuroinflammation, 2014-04-16)
BACKGROUND: Alterations in TNF-α expression have been associated with cerebral aneurysms, but a direct role in formation, progression, and rupture has not been established. METHODS: Cerebral aneurysms were induced through ...
A Day in the Death of a Hospice Patient.
(J Palliat Med, 2015-08)
Hand hygiene noncompliance and the cost of hospital-acquired methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus infection.
(Infect Control Hosp Epidemiol, 2010-04)
BACKGROUND: Hand hygiene noncompliance is a major cause of nosocomial infection. Nosocomial infection cost data exist, but the effect of hand hygiene noncompliance is unknown. OBJECTIVE: To estimate methicillin-resistant ...
Crosstalk rejection in full-field optical coherence tomography using spatially incoherent illumination with a partially coherent source
(Progress in Biomedical Optics and Imaging - Proceedings of SPIE, 2010-05-03)
The recent advent of ultra high frame rate cameras gives rise to the possibility of constructing swept source full-field OCT systems with achievable volume rates approaching 10Hz and net A-scan rates approaching ...
A genome-wide association study identifies susceptibility variants for type 2 diabetes in Han Chinese.
(PLoS Genet, 2010-02-19)
To investigate the underlying mechanisms of T2D pathogenesis, we looked for diabetes susceptibility genes that increase the risk of type 2 diabetes (T2D) in a Han Chinese population. A two-stage genome-wide association (GWA) ...
A novel mutation of the ACADM gene (c.145C>G) associated with the common c.985A>G mutation on the other ACADM allele causes mild MCAD deficiency: a case report.
(Orphanet J Rare Dis, 2010-10-05)
A female patient, with normal familial history, developed at the age of 30 months an episode of diarrhoea, vomiting and lethargy which resolved spontaneously. At the age of 3 years, the patient re-iterated vomiting, was ...
Menthol attenuates respiratory irritation and elevates blood cotinine in cigarette smoke exposed mice.
(PLoS One, 2015)
Addition of menthol to cigarettes may be associated with increased initiation of smoking. The potential mechanisms underlying this association are not known. Menthol, likely due to its effects on cold-sensing peripheral ...
