Complement receptor 2 (CR2, CD21), the receptor for both the C3d,g portion of human complement component C3 and the Epstein-Barr virus, has been recently described on peripheral T cells. By using dual stain flow cytometric analysis, we have also observed that a peripheral T lymphocyte subpopulation of normal healthy donors bears CR2 in a range varying from(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Hemodynamics of cerebral vasospasm after subarachnoid hemorrhage remain unclear, and the discrepancy between ultrasonographic or angiographic evidence of arterial narrowing and neurological ischemic deficit is still debated. Most blood flow studies have been involved with large arteries, and thus, very little is known regarding the(More)
OBJECTIVE Glioblastomas (GBMs) are lethal cancers that display cellular hierarchies parallel to normal brain. At the apex are GBM stem cells (GSCs), which are relatively resistant to conventional therapy. Interactions with the adjacent perivascular niche are an important driver of malignancy and self-renewal in GSCs. Extracellular matrix (ECM) cues instruct(More)
BACKGROUND Cerebral amyloid angiopathy (CAA) with intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) occurs both sporadically and as a result of mutations in either cystatin C or the amyloid precursor protein. ICH due to cystatin C mutations typically occurs in young people of Icelandic origin. CASE DESCRIPTION We report a case of sporadic CAA with ICH in an elderly Croatian(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Recent studies using cultured cells and rodent intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) models have implicated RIPK1 (receptor interacting protein kinase-1) as a driver of programmed necrosis and secondary injury based on use of chemical inhibitors. However, these inhibitors have off-target effects and cannot be used alone to prove a role for(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Physicians frequently fail to document obesity and obesity-related counseling. We sought to determine whether attaching a physical reminder card to patient encounter forms would increase electronic medical record (EMR) assessment of and documentation of obesity and dietary counseling. METHODS Reminder cards for obesity(More)
