The urokinase receptor (uPAR) binds and localizes urokinase activity at cellular surfaces, facilitating fibrinolysis and cellular migration at sites of tissue injury. uPAR also participates in cellular signaling and regulates integrin-dependent adhesion and migration in vitro. We now report evidence that uPAR occupancy regulates cellular migration in vivo(More)
Stimulus-related and event-related components of the visual evoked potential were recorded in three separate tasks that required language comprehension or spatial discrimination. Task-dependent asymmetries in the evoked potential were found for both the language task and one of the tasks involving spatial discrimination. Moreover, an identical stimulus(More)
Previous studies have demonstrated that delivery of a recombinant adeno-associated virus (AAV) vector encoding the complete human cystic fibrosis transmembrane regulator (CFTR) cDNA (tgAAVCF) to the nose, sinus, and lungs of subjects with cystic fibrosis (CF) was safe and well tolerated. In a small randomized, double-blind study of three doses of(More)
Pseudomonas aeruginosa (Pa) and Burkholderia cepacia complex (Bcc) lung infections are responsible for much of the mortality in cystic fibrosis (CF). However, little is known about the ecological interactions between these two, often co-infecting, species. This study provides what is believed to be the first report of the intra- and interspecies(More)
The ninth official pediatric report of the International Society for Heart and Lung Transplantation (ISHLT) covers the pediatric heart transplant experience from 1982 through 2005. This worldwide experience in pediatric heart transplantation represents a unique documentary in an ongoing effort to help children with lethal cardiac disease. Some aspects of(More)
Cystic fibrosis (CF) is a common inherited condition caused by mutations in the gene encoding the CF transmembrane regulator protein. With increased understanding of the molecular mechanisms underlying CF and the development of new therapies there comes the need to develop new outcome measures to assess the disease, its progression and response to(More)
