Stable ischemic heart disease in the older adults.
(J Geriatr Cardiol, 2016-02)
The genomic analysis of erythrocyte microRNA expression in sickle cell diseases.
(PLoS One, 2008-06-04)
BACKGROUND: Since mature erythrocytes are terminally differentiated cells without nuclei and organelles, it is commonly thought that they do not contain nucleic acids. In this study, we have re-examined this issue by analyzing ...
Critical role of TNF-α in cerebral aneurysm formation and progression to rupture.
(J Neuroinflammation, 2014-04-16)
BACKGROUND: Alterations in TNF-α expression have been associated with cerebral aneurysms, but a direct role in formation, progression, and rupture has not been established. METHODS: Cerebral aneurysms were induced through ...
Serotonin transporter genotype modulates social reward and punishment in rhesus macaques
(PLoS ONE, 2009)
Background: Serotonin signaling influences social behavior in both human and nonhuman primates. In humans, variation upstream of the promoter region of the serotonin transporter gene (5-HTTLPR) has recently been shown to ...
A Day in the Death of a Hospice Patient.
(J Palliat Med, 2015-08)
Hand hygiene noncompliance and the cost of hospital-acquired methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus infection.
(Infect Control Hosp Epidemiol, 2010-04)
BACKGROUND: Hand hygiene noncompliance is a major cause of nosocomial infection. Nosocomial infection cost data exist, but the effect of hand hygiene noncompliance is unknown. OBJECTIVE: To estimate methicillin-resistant ...
Crosstalk rejection in full-field optical coherence tomography using spatially incoherent illumination with a partially coherent source
(Progress in Biomedical Optics and Imaging - Proceedings of SPIE, 2010-05-03)
The recent advent of ultra high frame rate cameras gives rise to the possibility of constructing swept source full-field OCT systems with achievable volume rates approaching 10Hz and net A-scan rates approaching ...
A genome-wide association study identifies susceptibility variants for type 2 diabetes in Han Chinese.
(PLoS Genet, 2010-02-19)
To investigate the underlying mechanisms of T2D pathogenesis, we looked for diabetes susceptibility genes that increase the risk of type 2 diabetes (T2D) in a Han Chinese population. A two-stage genome-wide association (GWA) ...
A novel mutation of the ACADM gene (c.145C>G) associated with the common c.985A>G mutation on the other ACADM allele causes mild MCAD deficiency: a case report.
(Orphanet J Rare Dis, 2010-10-05)
A female patient, with normal familial history, developed at the age of 30 months an episode of diarrhoea, vomiting and lethargy which resolved spontaneously. At the age of 3 years, the patient re-iterated vomiting, was ...
