Children with the severe phenotype of the genetic immunodeficiency disease leukocyte adhesion deficiency or LAD experience life-threatening bacterial infections because of molecular defects in the leukocyte integrin CD18 molecule and the resultant failure to express the CD11/CD18 adhesion molecules on the leukocyte surface. Hematopoietic stem cell(More)
A Chatillon Model TCM-200 test stand with exchangeable flat horizontal or concave receptacle bases and a DFI-200 gauge load cell with multiple types of upper exchangeable test jaws (large round-flat, medium round-flat, chisel, bullet, and cone-shaped) were compared by using preautoclaved and autoclaved NIH-31 rodent diet pellets to determine which type of(More)
A shock canine pneumonia model that permitted relief of discomfort with the use of objective criteria was developed and validated. After intrabronchial Staphylococcus aureus challenge, mechanical ventilation, antibiotics, fluids, vasopressors, sedatives, and analgesics were titrated based on algorithms for 96 h. Increasing S. aureus (1 to 8 x 10(9)(More)
The genetic disease canine leukocyte adhesion deficiency (CLAD) is characterized by recurrent, severe bacterial infections, typically culminating in death by 6 months of age. CLAD is due to a mutation in the leukocyte integrin CD18 subunit, which prevents surface expression of the CD11/CD18 leukocyte integrin complex. We demonstrate that stable mixed(More)
