The objective of this paper is to provide an overview of methods used for estimating the burden from musculoskeletal (MSK) conditions in the Global Burden of Diseases 2010 study. It should be read in conjunction with the disease-specific MSK papers published in Annals of Rheumatic Diseases. Burden estimates (disability-adjusted life years (DALYs)) were made(More)
A two-dimensional gel electrophoresis (2-DE)-based proteomic approach was used to study a transgenic mouse model of acerbated dilated cardiomyopathy in which the small monomeric GTPase, Rac1, was constitutively expressed exclusively in the myocardium. A subfractionation procedure allowed for the focused analysis of both cytoplasmic and myofilament(More)
