The Min/+ mouse is a model for APC-dependent colorectal cancer (CRC). We showed that tumorigenesis in this animal was associated with decreased E-cadherin adhesion and increased epidermal growth factor receptor (Egfr) activity in the non-tumor intestinal mucosa. Here, we tested whether these abnormalities correlated with changes in the actin cytoskeleton(More)
The prevalence of hepatitis B viral markers is increased in some groups of medical workers who are exposed to blood from patients carrying the virus, but this has not been studied critically in physicians and others who administer anesthesia. Physician anesthesiologists (M.D.) and nurse anesthetists and anesthesia assistants (non-M.D.) at four(More)
Overexpression of the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) and its increased tyrosine kinase activity are implicated in colorectal cancer (CRC) development and malignant progression. The C57BL/6J-Min/+ (Min/+) mouse is a model for CRC and develops numerous intestinal adenomas. We analyzed the normal mucosa of Min/+ and Apc+/+ (WT) littermate mice(More)
Upper-extremity deep venous thrombosis is less common than lower-extremity deep venous thrombosis. However, upper-extremity deep venous thrombosis is associated with similar adverse consequences and is becoming more common in patients with complex medical conditions requiring central venous catheters or wires. Although guidelines suggest that this disorder(More)
A multicompartment pharmacokinetic model is presented to describe procaine distribution in humans during and following intravenous infusion. The model, based on a general perfusion model, relates individual characteristics such as sex, age, weight, height, infusion rate and duration, and hematocrit to general parameters such as drug metabolism, protein(More)
Partial loss of function of adenomatous polyposis coli (APC) protein by truncation of its carboxy (C)-terminus is an early factor in the development of many sporadic colorectal cancers. In the C57BL/6J Min/+ (Min/+) mouse, an animal with a germline mutation of Apc, we found that APC truncation was associated with reduced enterocyte migration and loss of(More)
rn Triple-quadrupole mass spectrometry (MS/MS) has been used to compare nitroaromatic emissions from two different types of diesel engines, a direct-injection, single-cylinder engine and an indirect-injection V-8 engine. The low level of nitropyrenes/nitrofluoranthenes in exhaust extracts may be due in part to the low pyrene content of the reference fuel(More)
