Reported lifetime aberrant drug-taking behaviors are predictive of current substance use and mental health problems in primary care patients.
(Pain Med, 2008-11)
BACKGROUND: The aim of this report is to determine the frequency of aberrant drug behaviors and their relationship to substance abuse disorders in a large primary sample of patients receiving opioids for chronic pain. METHODS: ...
Shared features in the pathobiology of babesiosis and malaria.
(Trends Parasitol, 2007-12)
The pathobiology of malaria has been extensively studied in humans but many questions remain, especially regarding fulminant disease associated with Plasmodium falciparum infection. Babesiosis, recognized since biblical ...

(Int J Clin Pract, 2008-09)
AIMS: The Blood Pressure Success Zone (BPSZ) Program, a nationwide initiative, provides education in addition to a complimentary trial of one of three antihypertensive medications. The BPSZ Longitudinal Observational Study ...
Consensus nomenclature for the human ArfGAP domain-containing proteins.
(J Cell Biol, 2008-09-22)
At the FASEB summer research conference on "Arf Family GTPases", held in Il Ciocco, Italy in June, 2007, it became evident to researchers that our understanding of the family of Arf GTPase activating proteins (ArfGAPs) has ...
Collagen biomarkers for arthritis applications.
(Biomark Insights, 2007-02-07)
ARFGAP1 plays a central role in coupling COPI cargo sorting with vesicle formation.
(J Cell Biol, 2005-01-17)
Examining how key components of coat protein I (COPI) transport participate in cargo sorting, we find that, instead of ADP ribosylation factor 1 (ARF1), its GTPase-activating protein (GAP) plays a direct role in promoting ...
A new instrument for measuring anticoagulation-related quality of life: development and preliminary validation.
(Health Qual Life Outcomes, 2004-05-06)
BACKGROUND: Anticoagulation can reduce quality of life, and different models of anticoagulation management might have different impacts on satisfaction with this component of medical care. Yet, to our knowledge, there are ...
Erythrocyte invasion profiles are associated with a common invasion ligand polymorphism in Senegalese isolates of Plasmodium falciparum.
Plasmodium falciparum parasites use multiple ligand-receptor interactions to invade human erythrocytes. Variant expression levels of members of the PfRh and PfEBA ligand families are associated with the use of different ...
Amino acid racemization reveals differential protein turnover in osteoarthritic articular and meniscal cartilages.
(Arthritis Res Ther, 2009)
INTRODUCTION: Certain amino acids within proteins have been reported to change from the L form to the D form over time. This process is known as racemization and is most likely to occur in long-lived low-turnover tissues ...
Oxygen for relief of dyspnoea in mildly- or non-hypoxaemic patients with cancer: a systematic review and meta-analysis.
(Br J Cancer, 2008-01-29)
The aim of this study was to determine the efficacy of palliative oxygen for relief of dyspnoea in cancer patients. MEDLINE and EMBASE were searched for randomised controlled trials, comparing oxygen and medical air in cancer ...
