BACKGROUND High carbohydrate intake has been linked to insulin resistance, obesity, and abnormal serum lipid profiles-conditions which favor gallstone formation. GOALS The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of dietary carbohydrate intake on incident gallbladder disease, defined as biliary sludge and stones, during pregnancy. STUDY We(More)
OBJECTIVES:Enhanced characterization of esophageal peristaltic and sphincter function provided by esophageal pressure topography (EPT) offers a potential diagnostic advantage over conventional line tracings (CLT). However, high-resolution manometry (HRM) and EPT require increased equipment costs over conventional systems and evidence demonstrating a(More)
The Group IVA cytosolic phospholipase A2 (GIVA cPLA2) is a key provider of substrates for the production of eicosanoids and platelet-activating factor. We explored the structure-activity relationship of 2-oxoamide-based compounds and GIVA cPLA2 inhibition. The most potent inhibitors are derived from delta- and gamma-amino acid-based 2-oxoamides. The optimal(More)
TAp73 is a p53 tumor suppressor gene homologue that is known to be mainly involved in apoptosis. We report here that TAp73 is necessary for the cellular response to oxidative stress and that TAp73 functions as a downstream target of p53 in this process. We show that p53 physically interacts with the TAp73 promoter under stress conditions that lead to cell(More)
