Dendritic cells (DCs) are critical in initiating immune responses by cross-priming of tumor Ags to T cells. Previous results showed that NK cells inhibited DC-mediated cross-presentation of tumor Ags both in vivo and in vitro. In this study, enhanced Ag presentation was observed in draining lymph nodes in TRAIL(-/-) and DR5(-/-) mice compared with that of(More)
Importance The combination of obesity and foregut surgery puts patients undergoing bariatric surgery at high risk for postoperative pulmonary complications. Postoperative incentive spirometry (IS) is a ubiquitous practice; however, little evidence exists on its effectiveness.

The purpose of this study was to identify factors at the time of presentation which could quickly exclude or identify renal dysfunction in blunt trauma patients, thus negating serum measurement of renal function prior to contrast-enhanced imaging and expediting care. Patients, >18 years old, without renal failure, presenting after blunt trauma, with serum(More)
