Over the past 50 years, steady growth in the field of metalloproteinase biology has shown that the degradation of extracellular matrix components represents only a fraction of the functions performed by these enzymes and has highlighted their fundamental roles in immunity. Metalloproteinases regulate aspects of immune cell development, effector function,(More)
Gut microbiota has been linked to a number of human diseases including colon cancer. However, the mechanism through which gut bacteria influence colon cancer development and progression remains unclear. Perturbation of the homeostasis between the host immune system and microbiota leads to inflammation and activation of macrophages which produce large(More)
Timp3 is commonly silenced in breast cancer, but mechanistic studies have identified both tumor promotion and suppression effects of this gene. We have taken a genetic approach to determine the impact of Timp3 loss on two mouse models of breast cancer. Interestingly, MMTV-PyMT Timp3-⁄- mice have delayed tumor onset and 36% of MMTV-Neu Timp3-⁄- mice remain(More)
PURPOSE The goals of this study were to examine how dosing strategies and timeliness of antipsychotic medication initiation would affect delirium duration. METHODS This is a retrospective paper and electronic record review of patients in an academic hospital who had been diagnosed with delirium. Forty-two patients met inclusion criteria.
