Receptors for prostanoids on platelets include the EP3 receptor for which the natural agonist is the inflammatory mediator prostaglandin E(2) (PGE(2)) produced in atherosclerotic plaques. EP3 is implicated in atherothrombosis and an EP3 antagonist might provide atherosclerotic lesion-specific antithrombotic therapy. DG-041 (2,3-dichlorothiophene-5-sulfonic(More)
Hepatocyte growth factor/scatter factor (HGF/SF) is a protein growth factor whose pleiotropic effects on epithelial cells include the stimulation of motility, mitosis and tubulogenesis. These responses are mediated by the cell surface tyrosine kinase receptor c-met. Because both the cytokine and receptor are found in the gastrointestinal tract, we have(More)
This paper describes our third generation multicore processor that exhibits a high level of integration. The current design doubles the number of cores, triples the frequency and more than quadruples total memory bandwidth over. It contains 700M transistors and has been fabricated in a 65nm process technology, with 10 layers of copper interconnect and C4(More)
BACKGROUND The United Nations Millennium Development Goals galvanized global efforts to alleviate suffering of the world's poorest people through unprecedented public-private partnerships. Donor aid agencies have demonstrably saved millions of lives that might otherwise have been lost to disease through increased access to quality-assured vaccines and(More)
Poor adherence to medicines in clinical trials can undermine the value of the trials; for example, by compromising estimates of the benefits and risks of a medicine. In this article, we highlight such consequences and also discuss approaches to tackle this problem.
