BACKGROUND Cyclooxygenase (COX) is the rate-limiting enzyme that catalyzes the formation of prostaglandins. The inducible isoform of COX (COX-2) is highly expressed in aggressive metastatic breast cancers and may play a critical role in cancer progression (i.e. growth and metastasis). However, the exact mechanism(s) for COX-2-enhanced metastasis has yet to(More)
BACKGROUND Neovascularization (angiogenesis) is a multistep process, controlled by opposing regulatory factors, which plays a crucial role in several ocular diseases. It often results in vitreous hemorrhage, retinal detachment, neovascularization glaucoma and subsequent vision loss. Hypoxia is considered to be one of the key factors to trigger angiogenesis(More)
Genetic factors, diet, and salt sensitivity have all been implicated in hypertension. To further understand the mechanisms involved in salt-induced hypertension, cardiovascular, hemodynamics, and biochemical parameters in Dahl salt-sensitive rats were evaluated in animals on high- and low-sodium diets. During a 4-week treatment period, blood pressure was(More)
 Wireless Magnetic Control of Medical Microrobots: Developing methods to use nonuniform magnetic fields in the wireless control of robotic tools. The use of nonuniform fields will enable a break from the typical symmetric field-generation sources, allowing the generation of more powerful magnetic fields, which is desirable for useful in vivo applications.(More)
Correction Following publication of our article [1] it was noted that Figures five E and five G were the same as Figures six A and six B. Figure 1 in this correction article is the correct version of Figure six that should have been included in the original article [1]. Figure 1 RT-PCR and Western blot analysis of NFB. Total RNA and total protein were(More)
