The NLRP3 Inflammasome Mediates Inflammation Produced by Bladder Outlet Obstruction.
(The Journal of urology, 2016-05)
While bladder outlet obstruction is well established to elicit an inflammatory reaction in the bladder that leads to overactive bladder and fibrosis, little is known about the mechanism by which this is initiated. NLRs (NOD-like ...
Gene expression in oogenesis and implications for transgenerational effects of environmental toxicants.

Awareness of Cervical Cancer Causes and Predeterminants of Likelihood to Screen Among Women in Haiti.
(Journal of lower genital tract disease, 2017-01)
Cervical cancer is the leading cause of cancer deaths among women in Haiti. Given this high disease burden, we sought to better understand women's knowledge of its causes and the sociodemographic and health correlates of ...
Modeling endocrine control of the pituitary-ovarian axis: androgenic influence and chaotic dynamics.
(Bulletin of mathematical biology, 2014-01)
Mathematical models of the hypothalamus-pituitary-ovarian axis in women were first developed by Schlosser and Selgrade in 1999, with subsequent models of Harris-Clark et al. (Bull. Math. Biol. 65(1):157-173, 2003) and Pasteur ...
Perspectives from Patients and Healthcare Providers on the Practice of Maternal Placentophagy.
(Journal of alternative and complementary medicine (New York, N.Y.), 2017-01)
Placentophagy (maternal consumption of the placenta) has become increasingly prevalent in the past decade among women seeking to promote health and healing during the postpartum period. The purpose of this study was to assess ...
Inhibition of Neu-induced mammary carcinogenesis in transgenic mice expressing ERΔ3, a dominant negative estrogen receptor α variant.
(Hormones & cancer, 2012-12)
The estrogen receptor α (ERα) splicing variant with an in-frame deletion of exon 3 (ERΔ3) is frequently expressed in the normal breast, but its influence on tumorigenesis has not been explored. In vitro, ERΔ3 has dominant ...
Changing cancer survival in China during 2003-15: a pooled analysis of 17 population-based cancer registries.
(The Lancet. Global health, 2018-05)
From 2003 to 2005, standardised 5-year cancer survival in China was much lower than in developed countries and varied substantially by geographical area. Monitoring population-level cancer survival is crucial to the understanding ...
A latent factor linear mixed model for high-dimensional longitudinal data analysis.
(Statistics in medicine, 2013-10)
High-dimensional longitudinal data involving latent variables such as depression and anxiety that cannot be quantified directly are often encountered in biomedical and social sciences. Multiple responses are used to characterize ...
A putatively functional polymorphism in the HTR2C gene is associated with depressive symptoms in white females reporting significant life stress.
(PloS one, 2014-01)
Psychosocial stress is well known to be positively associated with subsequent depressive symptoms. Cortisol response to stress may be one of a number of biological mechanisms that links psychological stress to depressive ...
Predictive Modeling of Length of Hospital Stay Following Adult Spinal Deformity Correction: Analysis of 653 Patients with an Accuracy of 75% within 2 Days.
(World neurosurgery, 2018-07)
Length of stay (LOS) after surgery for adult spinal deformity (ASD) is a critical period that allows for optimal recovery. Predictive models that estimate LOS allow for stratification of high-risk patients.A prospectively ...
