BACKGROUND Alzheimer disease (AD) may be caused by the toxic accumulation of beta-amyloid (Abeta). OBJECTIVE To test this theory, we developed a clinical intervention using clioquinol, a metal-protein-attenuating compound (MPAC) that inhibits zinc and copper ions from binding to Abeta, thereby promoting Abeta dissolution and diminishing its toxic(More)
Bacterial infections of the dental pulp result in tissue destruction and periapical bone resorption. The availability of genetically engineered mouse strains is a major advantage in the use of this model system for studies of periapical pathogenesis. The main limitation of the mouse model is its small size, and the necessity for laborious histologic(More)
BACKGROUND Chronic Chlamydia pneumoniae infection has been implicated in the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis but whether it plays a role at an early stage in the disease is uncertain. An early estimate of atherosclerosis can be obtained by ultrasonic imaging of the carotid artery to determine intima-media thickness (IMT) and the thickness of any atheroma(More)
In 2 cases of hydrops fetalis and intrauterine death associated with human parvovirus B19 infection that produced very few symptoms during the second trimester of pregnancy, maternal serum alpha-fetoprotein levels were raised, before the ultrasonic detection of hydropic features. Fetal blood sampling in 1 case revealed the features of aplastic crisis. A(More)
