Application of the Intervention Mapping protocol to develop Keys, a family child care home intervention to prevent early childhood obesity.
(BMC Public Health, 2015-12-10)
BACKGROUND: Many families rely on child care outside the home, making these settings important influences on child development. Nearly 1.5 million children in the U.S. spend time in family child care homes (FCCHs), where ...
HPV clearance and the neglected role of stochasticity.
(PLoS Comput Biol, 2015-03)
Clearance of anogenital and oropharyngeal HPV infections is attributed primarily to a successful adaptive immune response. To date, little attention has been paid to the potential role of stochastic cell dynamics in the ...
TNF rs1799964 as a Predictive Factor of Acute Toxicities in Chinese Rectal Cancer Patients Treated With Chemoradiotherapy.
Acute toxicity is the main dose-limiting factor in the chemoradiotherapy of rectal cancer patients and depends on several pro-inflammatory factors, including interleukin-1 (IL-1), IL-6, and tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-α). ...
Genetic variant of PRKAA1 and gastric cancer risk in an eastern Chinese population.
Published data on the association between PRKAA1 rs13361707 T > C polymorphism and gastric cancer (GCa) susceptibility were inconclusive. To derive a more precise estimation of the association, we conducted a large-scale ...
Impact of coverage-dependent marginal costs on optimal HPV vaccination strategies.
The effectiveness of vaccinating males against the human papillomavirus (HPV) remains a controversial subject. Many existing studies conclude that increasing female coverage is more effective than diverting resources into ...
Autophagy enhances NFκB activity in specific tissue macrophages by sequestering A20 to boost antifungal immunity.
(Nat Commun, 2015-01-22)
Immune responses must be well restrained in a steady state to avoid excessive inflammation. However, such restraints are quickly removed to exert antimicrobial responses. Here we report a role of autophagy in an early host ...
