Human metabotropic glutamate receptor type 7 (mGluR7) cDNA clones were isolated from a medulla cDNA library. The sequence, which includes a polymorphism, has 92% DNA sequence identity with rat mGluR7 and the predicted protein sequence has 99% identity. In-situ hybridization studies on human brain sections showed that mGluR7 mRNA has a widespread(More)
We have isolated clones of a novel splice variant of metabotropic glutamate receptor type 1 (mGluR1) from a human cerebellum cDNA library. Translation of this variant, mGluR1g would result in the addition of just one amino acid after the exon/intron boundary where the other splice variants diverge. RNA dot blot analysis using an mGluR1g-specific probe(More)
BACKGROUND Despite overall progress in treatment of autoimmune diseases, patients with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) experience many inflammatory symptoms representing an unmet medical need. This study aimed to create a conceptual model of the humanistic and economic burden of SLE, and review the patient-reported outcomes (PROs) used to measure such(More)
BACKGROUND Dressings are the mainstay of wound care management; however, adherence of the dressing to the wound or periwound skin is common and can lead to dressing-related pain and trauma. Dressing-related trauma is recognized as a clinical and economic burden to patients and health care providers. This study was conducted to garner expert opinion on(More)
