Recent studies have demonstrated that genetically modified hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) can reduce HIV viremia. We have developed an HIV/AIDS-patient model in Simian/human immunodeficiency virus (SHIV)-infected pigtailed macaques that are stably suppressed on antiretroviral therapy (ART: raltegravir, emtricitabine and tenofovir). Following SHIV infection(More)
In patients with myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS), apoptosis in hematopoietic cells is up-regulated in low-grade disease, whereas advanced disease is characterized by apoptosis resistance. We have shown that marrow stroma-derived signals convey sensitivity to tumor-necrosis-factor alpha (TNF-alpha)-mediated apoptosis in otherwise-resistant KG1a myeloid cells(More)
Biomarkers are most frequently proteins that are measured in the blood. Their development largely relies on antibody creation to test the protein candidate performance in blood samples of diseased versus nondiseased patients. The creation of such antibody assays has been a bottleneck in biomarker progress due to the cost, extensive time, and effort required(More)
