BACKGROUND Flow cytometric analysis of human P2X(7) pore activity segregates variant from common P2RX7 genotypes and may serve as a biomarker for cancer, pain, inflammation, and immune responses to infection. Standardization is needed to accommodate variable sample age and instrumentation differences in a multicenter clinical trial. METHODS(More)

OBJECTIVES To evaluate the association between P2X(7), asthma exacerbations, and incomplete symptom control in a more diverse(More)
High mammographic density has been correlated with a 4-fold to 6-fold increased risk of developing breast cancer, and is associated with increased stromal deposition of extracellular matrix proteins, including collagen I. The molecular and cellular mechanisms responsible for high breast tissue density are not completely understood. We previously described(More)
