Stimulating healthy tissue regeneration by targeting the 5-HT2B receptor in chronic liver disease
Tissue homeostasis requires an effective, limited wound-healing response to injury. In chronic disease, failure to regenerate parenchymal tissue leads to the replacement of lost cellular mass with aExpand

Targeting liver myofibroblasts: a novel approach in anti-fibrogenic therapy
Chronic liver disease results in a liver-scarring response termed fibrosis. Excessive scarring leads to cirrhosis, which is associated with high morbidity and mortality. The only treatment for liverExpand

Borderline magnetism in Sr4Ru3O10: Impact of La and Ca doping on itinerant ferromagnetism and metamagnetism
An investigation of La and Ca doped Sr4Ru3O10, featuring a coexistence of interlayer ferromagnetism and intralayer metamagnetism, is presented. La doping readily changes magnetism betweenExpand
