Role of mast cells in inflammatory bowel disease and inflammation-associated colorectal neoplasia in IL-10-deficient mice.
(PLoS One, 2010-08-17)
BACKGROUND: Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is hypothesized to result from stimulation of immune responses against resident intestinal bacteria within a genetically susceptible host. Mast cells may play a critical role ...
Direct TLR2 signaling is critical for NK cell activation and function in response to vaccinia viral infection.
(PLoS Pathog, 2010-03-12)
Natural killer (NK) cells play an essential role in innate immune control of poxviral infections in vivo. However, the mechanism(s) underlying NK cell activation and function in response to poxviruses remains poorly understood. ...
Localisation and mislocalisation of the interferon-inducible immunity-related GTPase, Irgm1 (LRG-47) in mouse cells
(PLoS ONE, 2010)
Irgm1 (LRG-47) is an interferon-inducible Golgi membrane associated GTPase of the mouse whose disruption causes susceptibility to many different intracellular pathogens. Irgm1 has been variously interpreted as a regulator ...
Fiber type-specific nitric oxide protects oxidative myofibers against cachectic stimuli.
(PLoS One, 2008-05-07)
Oxidative skeletal muscles are more resistant than glycolytic muscles to cachexia caused by chronic heart failure and other chronic diseases. The molecular mechanism for the protection associated with oxidative phenotype ...
The impact of structured support groups for pregnant South African women recently diagnosed HIV positive.
(Women Health, 2011-08-31)
The authors of this study evaluated a structured 10-session psychosocial support group intervention for newly HIV-diagnosed pregnant South African women. Participants were expected to display increases in HIV disclosure, ...
Peripheral nerve blocks in the management of postoperative pain: challenges and opportunities.
(J Clin Anesth, 2016-12)
Peripheral nerve blocks (PNBs) are increasingly used as a component of multimodal analgesia and may be administered as a single injection (sPNB) or continuous infusion via a perineural catheter (cPNB). We undertook a qualitative ...
Super-resolution method for arbitrary retrospective sampling in fluorescence tomography with raster scanning photodetectors.
(Proc SPIE Int Soc Opt Eng, 2013-03-22)
Dense spatial sampling is required in high-resolution optical imaging and many other biomedical optical imaging methods, such as diffuse optical imaging. Arrayed photodetectors, in particular charge coupled device cameras ...
Thromboembolism and bleeding in bladder cancer.
(Oncology (Williston Park), 2014-10)
Bladder cancer is a unique disease process in that clinically significant hemorrhage can occur simultaneously with equally significant aberrant clotting. With hematuria the key presenting symptom of bladder cancer, hemorrhage ...
