A search for an annual variation of a daily sidereal modulation of the frequency difference between colocated 129Xe and 3He Zeeman masers sets a stringent limit on boost-dependent Lorentz and CPT violation involving the neutron, consistent with no effect at the level of 150 nHz. In the framework of the general standard-model extension, the present result(More)
OBJECTIVE To examine the sensitivity of ultra-short echo time (UTE) T(2)* mapping to collagen matrix degeneration in human articular cartilage. METHODS Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) UTE-T(2)* maps and standard T(2) maps were acquired on four human tibial plateau explants. Thirty-three osteochondral cores were harvested for polarized light microscopy(More)
Schwann cells within a peripheral nerve respond robustly after an axonal injury. Recent results have revealed that Schwann cells undergo concurrent proliferation and apoptosis after a chronic nerve injury that is independent of axonal pathology. Although the exact nature of the stimulus that produces this Schwann cell response remains unknown, we postulated(More)
Oculopharyngeal muscular dystrophy (OPMD) is a rare myopathy for which validated outcome measures are lacking, posing a barrier to clinical trials. Our goal was to identify factors associated with impaired mobility in OPMD in order to guide development of surrogate endpoints in future clinical trials. One hundred forty-four individuals with OPMD were(More)
OBJECTIVES: We previously demonstrated that diaspirin crosslinked hemoglobin (DCLHb, Baxter Healthcare Corp.) improves systemic oxygen uptake in sepsis. Therefore, our objective was to study the effects of DCLHb on microcirculatory blood flow in septic rats. DESIGN: Prospective and randomized experimental study in a university-affiliated laboratory.(More)
