Although it is clear that FMDV enters epithelial cells via integrins, little is known about FMDV interaction with DC. Accordingly, DC internalization of(More)

This is a phase 1 pilot trial investigating the immediate effect of a neurodynamic treatment as compared to a sham treatment in eight participants with low back pain. Primary outcome measures included: H-reflex(More)
