In wild-type (VDR(+/+)) mice, ECaC2 expression was confirmed in the intestine and kidney, while ECaC1 expression was exclusively confined to the kidney. Both mRNAs expression of ECaC1 and ECaC2 in the kidney and ECaC2 mRNA expression in the intestine increased time- and dose-dependently in response to 1alpha,25(OH)(2)D(3) injection in VDR(+/+) mice, but not… (More)
BACKGROUND There is growing evidence that human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-infected women might have a different human papillomavirus (HPV) type distribution in cervical dysplasia specimens as compared to the general population. This has implications for primary prevention. OBJECTIVE We aimed to obtain preliminary data on the HPV genotypes prevalent in… (More)
We find a new family of non-separable coordinate transformations bringing the FRW metrics into the manifestly conformally flat form. Our results are simple and complete, while our derivation is quite explicit. We also calculate all the FRW curvatures, including the Weyl tensor.
BACKGROUND Severe aortic tortuosity of the access route often prevents successful complete exclusion of an aneurysm in thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR). CASE PRESENTATION We performed antegrade TEVAR on a 79-year-old man with right hemiparesis. We deployed the stent graft from the ascending aorta with a tube graft conduit to treat a descending… (More)
