Human neural transplants are being developed to treat Parkinson's disease. Previous characterization of human transplants focused on neuronal development, while little is known of the interaction between the transplant and its environment, among which blood is of prime importance. We evaluated here the formation of blood vessels in human neural xenografts(More)
Transplantation of human fetal neural cells has been used for several years as a treatment for Parkinson's disease. These therapeutic trials were based on a large number of rat allografts studies, and the species to species extrapolation appeared valid in many respects. One major difference between neurons of various species, however, is their rate of(More)
Although epidemiological evidence suggests a human genetic basis of pulmonary tuberculosis (PTB) susceptibility, the identification of specific genes and alleles influencing PTB risk has proven to be difficult. Previous genome-wide association (GWA) studies have identified only three novel loci with modest effect sizes in sub-Saharan African and Russian(More)
