Effective treatment of SIVcpz-induced immunodeficiency in a captive western chimpanzee.
Simian immunodeficiency virus of chimpanzees (SIVcpz), the progenitor of human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1), is associated with increased mortality and AIDS-like immunopathology in wild-living chimpanzees ...
Population-based biobank participants' preferences for receiving genetic test results.
(Journal of human genetics, 2017-12)
There are ongoing debates on issues relating to returning individual research results (IRRs) and incidental findings (IFs) generated by genetic research in population-based biobanks. To understand how to appropriately return ...
Increased renal dopamine and acute renal adaptation to a high-phosphate diet.
(American journal of physiology. Renal physiology, 2011-05)
The current experiments explore the role of dopamine in facilitating the acute increase in renal phosphate excretion in response to a high-phosphate diet. Compared with a low-phosphate (0.1%) diet for 24 h, mice ...
An Initial Evaluation of the Impact of Pokémon GO on Physical Activity.
(Journal of the American Heart Association, 2017-05-16)
Pokémon GO is a location-based augmented reality game. Using GPS and the camera on a smartphone, the game requires players to travel in real world to capture animated creatures, called Pokémon. We examined the impact of ...
Confounders versus Mediators: An Important Distinction.
The Digital Drag and Drop Pillbox: Design and Feasibility of a Skill-based Education Model to Improve Medication Management.
(The Journal of cardiovascular nursing, 2017-09)
We present the design and feasibility testing for the "Digital Drag and Drop Pillbox" (D-3 Pillbox), a skill-based educational approach that engages patients and providers, measures performance, and generates reports of ...
Paracrine Wnt5a-β-Catenin Signaling Triggers a Metabolic Program that Drives Dendritic Cell Tolerization.
Despite recent advances, many cancers remain refractory to available immunotherapeutic strategies. Emerging evidence indicates that the tolerization of local dendritic cells (DCs) within the tumor microenvironment promotes ...
Exposure to opposing views on social media can increase political polarization.
(Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America, 2018-09)
There is mounting concern that social media sites contribute to political polarization by creating "echo chambers" that insulate people from opposing views about current events. We surveyed a large sample of Democrats and ...
A pilot investigation of audiovisual processing and multisensory integration in patients with inherited retinal dystrophies.
(BMC ophthalmology, 2017-12-07)
In this study, we examined audiovisual (AV) processing in normal and visually impaired individuals who exhibit partial loss of vision due to inherited retinal dystrophies (IRDs).Two groups were analyzed for this pilot study: ...
TNFRSF1B +676 T>G polymorphism predicts survival of non-small cell lung cancer patients treated with chemoradiotherapy.
(BMC cancer, 2011-10-14)
The dysregulation of gene expression in the TNF-TNFR superfamily has been involved in various human cancers including non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Furthermore, functional polymorphisms in TNF-α and TNFRSF1B genes ...
