Adoptive natural regulatory T cell (nTreg) therapy has improved the outcome for patients suffering from graft-versus-host disease (GVHD) following allogeneic hematopoietic cell transplantation (Allo-HCT). However, fear of broad immune suppression and subsequent dampening of beneficial graft-versus-leukemia (GVL) responses remains a challenge. To address(More)
BACKGROUND Although rejection rates and short-term graft survival have significantly improved in kidney transplantation with the introduction of calcineurin inhibitor (CNI), cardiovascular disease (CVD) and metabolic complications are being increasingly recognized as important causes of morbidity and mortality. We hypothesize that non-CNI proliferation(More)
Noninvasive portable sensors are becoming popular in biomedical engineering practice due to its ease of use. This paper investigates the estimation of human oxygen uptake (VO(2)) of treadmill exercises by using multiple portable sensors (wireless heart rate sensor and triaxial accelerometers). For this purpose, a multivariable Hammerstein model(More)
Alloreactive donor T cells are the driving force in the induction of graft-versus-host disease (GVHD), yet little is known about T cell metabolism in response to alloantigens after hematopoietic cell transplantation (HCT). Here, we have demonstrated that donor T cells undergo metabolic reprograming after allogeneic HCT. Specifically, we employed a murine(More)
MicroRNAs (miRs) play important roles in orchestrating many aspects of the immune response. The miR-17-92 cluster, which encodes 6 miRs including 17, 18a, 19a, 20a, 19b-1, and 92-1, is among the best characterized of these miRs. The miR-17-92 cluster has been shown to regulate a variety of immune responses including infection, tumor, and autoimmunity, but(More)
Cardiac arrhythmia relating to hypoglycemia is suggested as a cause of death in diabetic patients. This article introduces electrocardiographic (ECG) parameters for artificially induced hypoglycemia detection. In addition, a hybrid technique of swarm-based support vector machine (SVM) is introduced for hypoglycemia detection using the ECG parameters as(More)
Although the susceptibility to fracture is partly determined by genetic factors, the contribution of newly discovered genetic variants to fracture prediction is still unclear. This study sought to define the predictive value of a genetic profiling for fracture prediction. Sixty-two bone mineral density (BMD)-associated single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs)(More)
