OBJECTIVE To confirm abnormal glycosylation of Tamm-Horsfall protein (THP) in patients with interstitial cystitis (IC). PATIENTS, SUBJECTS AND METHODS The sialic acid content of THP, a critical component of its biological activity, is reduced in patients with IC. N-glycan shows reduced levels of high molecular weight tri- and tetra-antennary sialylated(More)
BACKGROUND Antithymocyte globulin (ATG) is used as induction therapy after cardiac transplant for enhancing immunosuppression and delaying the initiation of nephrotoxic drugs. It is unknown if ATG induction is associated with decreased coronary plaque progression by intravascular ultrasound (IVUS). METHODS AND RESULTS Patients transplanted between March(More)
BACKGROUND Percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) with bare-metal and first-generation drug-eluting stents (DES) for cardiac allograft vasculopathy (CAV) is associated with unexpectedly high restenosis rates and target lesion revascularization (TLR). Long-term outcomes of stenting for CAV using second-generation everolimus-eluting stents (EES) are not(More)
PRESENTATION A thorough evaluation suggested the patient’s initial diagnosis was not quite right; but it was not wrong, either. An 83-year-old woman with presumed aortic stenosis was referred to our medical center for aortic valve replacement.
