Comparison of a reduced carbohydrate and reduced fat diet for LDL, HDL, and VLDL subclasses during 9-months of weight maintenance subsequent to weight loss.
(Lipids Health Dis, 2010-06-01)
OBJECTIVES: This study compared LDL, HDL, and VLDL subclasses in overweight or obese adults consuming either a reduced carbohydrate (RC) or reduced fat (RF) weight maintenance diet for 9 months following significant weight ...
Spatial distribution of bednet coverage under routine distribution through the public health sector in a rural district in Kenya.
(PLoS One, 2011)
Insecticide-treated nets (ITNs) are one of the most important and cost-effective tools for malaria control. Maximizing individual and community benefit from ITNs requires high population-based coverage. Several mechanisms ...
Use of 16S ribosomal RNA gene analyses to characterize the bacterial signature associated with poor oral health in West Virginia.
(BMC Oral Health, 2011-03-01)
BACKGROUND: West Virginia has the worst oral health in the United States, but the reasons for this are unclear. This pilot study explored the etiology of this disparity using culture-independent analyses to identify bacterial ...
The dopamine metabolite 3-methoxytyramine is a neuromodulator.
(PLoS One, 2010-10-18)
Dopamine (3-hydroxytyramine) is a well-known catecholamine neurotransmitter involved in multiple physiological functions including movement control. Here we report that the major extracellular metabolite of dopamine, ...
Magnetic resonance water proton relaxation in protein solutions and tissue: T(1rho) dispersion characterization.
(PLoS One, 2010-01-05)
BACKGROUND: Image contrast in clinical MRI is often determined by differences in tissue water proton relaxation behavior. However, many aspects of water proton relaxation in complex biological media, such as protein solutions ...
Accessibility, availability and affordability of anti-malarials in a rural district in Kenya after implementation of a national subsidy scheme.
(Malar J, 2011-10-26)
BACKGROUND: Poor access to prompt and effective treatment for malaria contributes to high mortality and severe morbidity. In Kenya, it is estimated that only 12% of children receive anti-malarials for their fever within ...
EPR spectroscopy of nitrite complexes of methemoglobin.
(Inorg Chem, 2010-07-19)
The chemical interplay of nitrogen oxides (NO's) with hemoglobin (Hb) has attracted considerable recent attention because of its potential significance in the mechanism of NO-related vasoactivity regulated by Hb. An important ...
Ras controls melanocyte expansion during zebrafish fin stripe regeneration.
(Dis Model Mech, 2010-07)
Regenerative medicine for complex tissues like limbs will require the provision or activation of precursors for different cell types, in the correct number, and with the appropriate instructions. These strategies can be ...
