Efficacy of the Herpes Zoster Subunit Vaccine in Adults 70 Years of Age or Older.
HZ/su was found to reduce the risks of herpes zoster and postherpetic neuralgia among adults 70 years of age or older. Expand
Nuclear localization of Merkel cell polyomavirus large T antigen in Merkel cell carcinoma.
The expression of large T antigen in vitro and in vivo and sequence analyses suggest that the nuclear localization signal is highly conserved and functional in Merkel cell carcinoma cases. Expand
Successful treatment of toenail onychomycosis with photodynamic therapy.
2 patients with toenail onychomycosis who were sucessfully treated with photodynamic therapy (PDT) are described. Expand
Treatment of patients with acquired idiopathic generalized anhidrosis
High-resolution melting analysis as a diagnostic tool to detect the BRAF V600E mutation in colorectal tumors and enhanced detection of BRAFmutants by pre-PCR cleavage of wild-type sequences revealed circulating melanoma cells heterogeneity. Expand
