(BMC IMMUNOLOGY, 2009-06-25)
Polyclonal B cell differentiation and loss of gastrointestinal tract germinal centers in the earliest stages of HIV-1 infection.
(PLoS Med, 2009-07-07)
BACKGROUND: The antibody response to HIV-1 does not appear in the plasma until approximately 2-5 weeks after transmission, and neutralizing antibodies to autologous HIV-1 generally do not become detectable until 12 weeks ...
Metronomic chemotherapy with daily, oral etoposide plus bevacizumab for recurrent malignant glioma: a phase II study.
(Br J Cancer, 2009-12-15)
BACKGROUND: We evaluated bevacizumab with metronomic etoposide among recurrent malignant glioma patients in a phase 2, open-label trial. METHODS: A total of 59 patients, including 27 with glioblastoma (GBM) and 32 with grade ...
Neuropeptide Y gene polymorphisms confer risk of early-onset atherosclerosis.
(PLoS Genet, 2009-01)
Neuropeptide Y (NPY) is a strong candidate gene for coronary artery disease (CAD). We have previously identified genetic linkage to familial CAD in the genomic region of NPY. We performed follow-up genetic, biostatistical, ...
Pseudomonas aeruginosa vesicles associate with and are internalized by human lung epithelial cells.
(BMC Microbiol, 2009-02-03)
BACKGROUND: Pseudomonas aeruginosa is the major pathogen associated with chronic and ultimately fatal lung infections in patients with cystic fibrosis (CF). To investigate how P. aeruginosa-derived vesicles may contribute ...
Analysis of case-control association studies: SNPs, imputation and haplotypes
(Statistical Science, 2009)
A Vital Role for Interleukin-21 in the Control of a Chronic Viral Infection
Micro-CT imaging of breast tumors in rodents using a liposomal, nanoparticle contrast agent.
(Int J Nanomedicine, 2009)
A long circulating liposomal, nanoscale blood pool agent encapsulating traditional iodinated contrast agent (65 mg I/mL) was used for micro-computed tomography (CT) imaging of rats implanted with R3230AC mammary carcinoma. ...
