Salicylate causes a moderate hearing loss and tinnitus in humans at high-dose levels. Salicylate-induced hearing loss has been attributed to impaired sound amplification by outer hair cells (OHCs) through its direct action on the OHC motility sensor and/or motor. However, there is a disparity of salicylate concentrations between the clinical and animal(More)
Retroviral insertion site analysis was used to track the contribution of retrovirally transduced primitive progenitors to hematopoiesis after autologous transplantation in the rhesus macaque model. CD34-enriched mobilized peripheral blood cells were transduced with retroviral marking vectors containing the neo gene and were reinfused after total body(More)
Low-level retroviral transduction and engraftment of hematopoietic long-term repopulating cells in large animals and humans remain primary obstacles to the successful application of hematopoietic stem cell (HSC) gene transfer in humans. Recent studies have reported improved efficiency by including stromal cells (STR), or the fibronectin fragment CH-296(More)
Nuclear factor (NF)-κB is a transcription factor implicated in the pathogenesis of autoimmune disorders such as rheumatoid arthritis (RA). Here we have examined the effect of intra-articular administration of the IKK inhibitor, NEMO-binding domain peptide (NBD), on the severity of collagen-induced arthritis (CIA). NBD peptides were injected(More)
