Lenalidomide with or without erythropoietin in transfusion-dependent erythropoiesis-stimulating agent-refractory lower-risk MDS without 5q deletion
After failure of erythropoiesis-stimulating agents (ESAs), lenalidomide (LEN) yields red blood cell (RBC) transfusion independence (TI) in 20–30% of lower-risk non-del5q myelodysplastic syndromeExpand

Inflammatory Biomarker Profiling in Total Joint Arthroplasty and Its Relevance to Circulating Levels of Lubricin, a Novel Proteoglycan
Lubricin, also known as proteoglycan 4, acts as an antiadhesive and boundary lubricant to prevent cartilage damage in healthy joints. Following injury, a decrease in synovial fluid (SF) lubricin mayExpand
