One of the most serious complications faced by patients with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is the potential development of colorectal cancer (CRC). There is a compelling need to enhance the accuracy of cancer screening of IBD patients. MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are small nonprotein-coding RNAs that play important roles in CRC oncogenesis. In this study, we(More)
Lung cancer remains a devastating disease associated with substantial morbidity and mortality. Recent research has suggested that lung cancer screening with spiral computed tomography scans might reduce lung cancer mortality. Studies of lung cancer screening have also suggested that significant numbers of participants quit smoking after screening. However,(More)
The developmental decrease in rapid-eye-movement (REM) sleep in man occurs between birth and after puberty. We hypothesize that if this decrease in REM sleep does not occur, lifelong increases in REM sleep drive may ensue. Such disorders are characterized by hypervigilance and sensory-gating deficits, such as are present in postpubertal onset disorders like(More)
STUDY DESIGN Hyper-reflexia, measured as a decrease of low frequency-dependent depression of the H-reflex, is known to occur in both humans and animals after spinal cord injury (SCI). Previous studies have shown that passive exercise for 3 months could be used to restore low frequency-dependent depression of the H-reflex after SCI. OBJECTIVE To determine(More)
BACKGROUND Hospital length of stay (LOS) and time for a patient to reach clinical stability (TCS) have increasingly become important outcomes when investigating ways in which to combat Community Acquired Pneumonia (CAP). Difficulties arise when deciding how to handle in-hospital mortality. Ad-hoc approaches that are commonly used to handle time to event(More)
The crude product of deamination of the commercially available L-homoserine was acetylated and the 2-O-acetyl-3-deoxy-L-glycero-tetronolactone (18) formed was used to N-acylate methyl perosaminide (methyl 4-amino-4,6-dideoxy-alpha-D-mannopyranoside, 12) and its 2,3-O-isopropylidene derivative. The major product isolated from the reaction was the crystalline(More)
