Convenient and well-performing protein detection methods for a wide range of targets are in great demand for biomedical research and future diagnostics. Assays without the need for washing steps while still unaffected when analyzing complex biological samples are difficult to develop. Herein, we report a well-characterized nucleic acid proximity-based assay(More)
We recently demonstrated that severe thymic and splenic atrophy occur upon dietary treatment of mice with potent peroxisome proliferators (PPs), e.g. perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA), WY-14,643, nafenopin, and di(2-ethylhexyl)phthalate (DEHP). In the present study, we investigated this phenomenon further employing a relative inert PP, PFOA. Comparison of the(More)
In this study, we have examined intratype human papillomavirus (HPV) sequence variation in a worldwide collection of cervical specimens. Twelve different HPV types including HPV-18, HPV-33, HPV-35, HPV-39, HPV-45, HPV-51, HPV-52, HPV-58, HPV-59, HPV-68 (ME180), MM9/PAP238A (recently designated HPV-73), and a novel partial genomic HPV sequence designated(More)
BACKGROUND Internet-delivered self-help programmes with added therapist guidance have shown efficacy in social anxiety disorder, but unguided self-help has been insufficiently studied. AIMS To evaluate the efficacy of guided and unguided self-help for social anxiety disorder. METHOD Participants followed a cognitive-behavioural self-help programme in(More)
Medical research is developing an ever greater need for comprehensive high-quality data generation to realize the promises of personalized health care based on molecular biomarkers. The nucleic acid proximity-based methods proximity ligation and proximity extension assays have, with their dual reporters, shown potential to relieve the shortcomings of(More)
BACKGROUND Despite years of interest in the anti-cancerous effects of cardiac glycosides (CGs), and numerous studies in vitro and in animals, it has not yet been possible to utilize this potential clinically. Reports have demonstrated promising in vitro effects on different targets as well as a possible therapeutic index/selectivity in vitro and in(More)
BACKGROUND This study investigated the efficacy of an Internet-based self-help program with minimal therapist contact via e-mail for Swedish university students with social phobia and public speaking fears. The main objective was to test if the Internet-based self-help program would be more effective if five live group exposure sessions were added. (More)
Perfluorooctane sulfonic acid is almost as potent as perfluorooctanoic acid in causing increases in peroxisomal fatty acid beta-oxidation, peroxisomal catalase activity, omega-hydroxylation of lauric acid, cytosolic epoxide hydrolase activity and cytosolic DT-diaphorase activity. Octane sulfonic acid was ineffective at doses used for perfluorooctane(More)
Vibrational communication is one of the least understood channels of communication. Most studies have focused on the role of substrate-borne signals in insect mating behavior, where a male and a female establish a stereotyped duet that enables partner recognition and localization. While the effective communication range of substrate-borne signals may be up(More)
We have previously examined 29 cervical cell isolates for human papillomavirus type 16 (HPV-16) sequence variations in the E6, L2 and L1 coding regions, and the long control region (LCR). Twenty-five of these isolates as well as 23 additional isolates are characterized here as we present the complete E5 coding segment and the E2 hinge region. Eight amino(More)
