Vitamin D is known to increase Ca absorption in adults. However, the threshold vitamin D status to benefit Ca absorption is lower than the target vitamin D status for higher bone mineral density and lower fracture risk, pointing to another pathway for vitamin D to benefit bone. One possibility is by affecting osteoblast and osteoclasts directly. Vitamin(More)
6-Hydroxydopamine (6-OHDA) is widely used in vivo and in vitro to mimic the selective neuronal degeneration that characterizes Parkinson disease (PD). To uncover candidate genes that may mediate neuron death in PD, we previously used SAGE to identify transcripts that are rapidly induced by 6-OHDA in neuronally differentiated PC12 cells. Among induced(More)
In cancer patients, visual identification of sentinel lymph nodes (LNs) is achieved by the injection of dyes that bind avidly to endogenous albumin, targeting these compounds to LNs, where they are efficiently filtered by resident phagocytes. Here we translate this 'albumin hitchhiking' approach to molecular vaccines, through the synthesis of amphiphiles(More)
B-cells are promising candidate autologous antigen-presenting cells (APCs) to prime antigen-specific T-cells both in vitro and in vivo. However to date, a significant barrier to utilizing B-cells as APCs is their low capacity for non-specific antigen uptake compared to "professional" APCs such as dendritic cells. Here we utilize a microfluidic device that(More)

Improving Gender Equality in Territorial Issues (IGETI). Integrated Guidelines 2 " For many women, their autonomy depends on land. In the final analysis, land means belonging to a place and to a culture. This is why when speaking about landless men and women we are talking about people without a past, without a present and without a future " * The views(More)
BACKGROUND Evaluation of latest generation automated attenuation-based tube potential selection (ATPS) impact on image quality and radiation dose in contrast-enhanced chest-abdomen-pelvis computed tomography examinations for gynaecologic cancer staging. METHODS This IRB approved single-centre, observer-blinded retrospective study with a waiver for(More)
INTRODUCTION Current methods for early diagnosis of osteoarthritis (OA) are limited. We assessed whether in vivo detection of chondrocyte death by ApoPep-1 (CQRPPR), a peptide that binds to histone H1 of apoptotic and necrotic cells, could be used to detect the initiation of OA. METHODS Apoptosis-induced ATDC5 cells were labeled with Annexin V and(More)
