OBJECTIVE Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is characterized by the dysfunction of control and reward mechanisms. However, only few neuroimaging studies of OCD have examined the reward processing. We examined the neural responses during incentive processing in OCD. METHOD   Twenty unmedicated patients with OCD and 20 age-, sex-, and IQ-matched healthy(More)
Chromosome 8p21-22 is a frequent site of allelic deletions in many types of human tumors, including non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Tumor necrosis factor-related apoptosis-inducing ligand-receptor 2 (TRAIL-R2) is a cell-surface receptor involved in cell death signaling. The TRAIL-R2 gene recently has been mapped to chromosome 8p21-22. To explore the(More)
Magnetic resonance electrical impedance tomography (MREIT) is a recently developed imaging technique that combines MRI and electrical impedance tomography (EIT). In MREIT, cross-sectional electrical conductivity images are reconstructed from the internal magnetic field density data produced inside an electrically conducting subject when an electrical(More)
We report on a search for the standard model Higgs boson produced in association with a vector boson in the full data set of proton-antiproton collisions at sqrt[s]=1.96  TeV recorded by the CDF II detector at the Tevatron, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 9.45  fb(-1). We consider events having no identified charged lepton, a transverse energy(More)
We present a search for standard model (SM) Higgs boson production using pp collision data at square root(s) = 1.96 TeV, collected with the CDF II detector and corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 4.8 fb(-1). We search for Higgs bosons produced in all processes with a significant production rate and decaying to two W bosons. We find no evidence for(More)
We present a search for the technicolor particles rho{T} and pi_{T} in the process pp-->rho{T}-->Wpi{T} at a center of mass energy of sqrt[s]=1.96 TeV. The search uses a data sample corresponding to approximately 1.9 fb{-1} of integrated luminosity accumulated by the CDF II detector at the Fermilab Tevatron. The event signature we consider is W-->lnu and(More)
Biological bases for sexual differences in the brain exist in a wide range of vertebrate species, including chickens. Recently, the dogma of hormonal dependence for the sexual differentiation of the brain has been challenged. We examined whether sexually dimorphic gene expression in the brain precedes gonadal differentiation. Using the Affymetrix GeneChip(More)
BACKGROUND Capecitabine (Xeloda) is a novel, oral, selectively tumor-activated fluoropyrimidine with proven activity in the treatment of advanced colorectal cancer. This trial was conducted to evaluate the efficacy, safety and feasibility of capecitabine in previously untreated patients with advanced and/or metastatic gastric cancer, with a view to(More)
Hydroxyurea is a differentiation-inducing agent of human erythroleukemia K562 cells. However, the cellular mechanisms by which hydroxyurea exerts its effects on tumor cells, leading to the inhibition of cell growth and the induction of differentiation markers, are largely unknown. This study examined the role of different mitogen-activated protein kinase(More)
Robertsonian translocations are the most common chromosomal rearrangements in humans. The vast majority of the ten possible nonhomologous types of Robertsonian translocations ascertained are rob(13q14q) and rob(14q21q). Recombination between homologous sequences on nonhomologous chromosomes has been proposed as a mechanism leading to the preferential(More)
