Particulate allergens potentiate allergic asthma in mice through sustained IgE-mediated mast cell activation.
(J Clin Invest, 2011-03)
Allergic asthma is characterized by airway hyperresponsiveness, inflammation, and a cellular infiltrate dominated by eosinophils. Numerous epidemiological studies have related the exacerbation of allergic asthma with an ...
Mechanisms of specificity in neuronal activity-regulated gene transcription.
(Prog Neurobiol, 2011-08)
The brain is a highly adaptable organ that is capable of converting sensory information into changes in neuronal function. This plasticity allows behavior to be accommodated to the environment, providing an important evolutionary ...
Knowledge-based IMRT treatment planning for prostate cancer.
(Med Phys, 2011-05)
PURPOSE: To demonstrate the feasibility of using a knowledge base of prior treatment plans to generate new prostate intensity modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) plans. Each new case would be matched against others in the ...
B-lymphocyte effector functions in health and disease.
(Immunol Res, 2011-04)
B-lymphocytes have traditionally been thought to contribute to immunity and autoimmune disease through terminal differentiation into plasma cells that secrete antibody. However, studies in mice and recent clinical studies ...
