OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to use microarray technology to: (1) understand the early molecular events underlying the damage of articular cartilage initiated by this surgical procedure, and (2) determine whether these changes mimic those that are occurring in human osteoarthritic (OA) cartilage. DESIGN Cartilage was harvested from both medial(More)
Multicentric carpal-tarsal osteolysis; multicentric osteolysis, nodulosis, and arthropathy; and Winchester syndromes, skeletal dysplasias characterized by carpal/tarsal and epiphyseal abnormalities, are caused by mutations in v-maf musculoaponeurotic fibrosarcoma oncogene ortholog B (MAFB), matrix metalloproteinase (MMP) 2, and MMP14, respectively; however,(More)
Enteric types of adenovirus have recently been identified as a causative agent of infantile gastroenteritis. We utilized enzyme immunoassay and tissue culture techniques to evaluate prospectively the role of ET Ad in diarrhea occurring in hospitalized infants. We found that ET Ad was associated with 14 of 27 cases of diarrhea occurring during a 12-week(More)
Previous reports have attributed increased carotid blood flow to lung ventilation during CPR. This study was undertaken to determine whether PEEP (20 torr airway pressure) or increased frequency of ventilation (3:1) improved arterial pressure, flow, and blood gases. Thirty-three domestic pigs were studied using three protocols (standard 5:1 CPR, 5:1 CPR(More)
High-quality biomarkers for disease progression, drug efficacy and toxicity liability are essential for improving the efficiency of drug discovery and development. The identification of drug-activity biomarkers is often limited by access to and the quantity of target tissue. Peripheral blood has increasingly become an attractive alternative to tissue(More)
