The distribution of the androgen receptor (AR) in archival human testes was determined immunocytochemically using an affinity-purified peptide-specific rabbit antibody, PG21, and employing a modified biotin-streptavidin-immunoperoxidase method that incorporated a biotin amplification step. In combination with microwave epitope retrieval, the biotin(More)
To counter the global threat caused by Plasmodium falciparum malaria, new drugs and vaccines are urgently needed. However, there are no practical animal models because P. falciparum infects human erythrocytes almost exclusively. Here we describe a reliable falciparum murine model of malaria by generating strains of P. falciparum in vivo that can infect(More)
OBJECTIVE Liver growth factor (LGF), a mitogen for liver cells, reduces fibrosis in a rat model of cirrhosis. The present study assesses the possible vascular antifibrotic and antihypertensive effects of LGF treatment on spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHR). METHODS Six-month-old male SHR and normotensive Wistar Kyoto rats (WKY) were treated with LGF(More)
BACKGROUND Whereas there is increasing evidence that loss of expression and/or function of the thyroid hormone receptors (TRs) could result in a selective advantage for tumor development, the relationship between thyroid hormone levels and human cancer is a controversial issue. It has been reported that hypothyroidism might be a possible risk factor for(More)
An accurate computer-assisted method able to perform regional segmentation on 3D single modality images and measure its volume is designed using a mixture of unsupervised and supervised artificial neural networks. Firstly, an unsupervised artificial neural network is used to estimate representative textures that appear in the images. The region of interest(More)
The immunohistochemical reaction to oncostatin M (OSM) was studied in normal human testes at different ages (fetuses, newborns, children, pubertal boys, adults, and elderly men), as well as in several testicular disorders including carcinoma-in-situ cells (CIS), germ cell tumors, benign functioning Leydig cell tumor, androgen insensitivity syndrome,(More)
Decreased thyroidal hormone production is found during lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-induced endotoxic shock in animals as well as in critically ill patients. Here we studied the role of the thyroid hormone receptors (TRs) in activation of STAT3, NF-κB and ERK, which play a key role in the response to inflammatory cytokines during sepsis. TR knockout mice showed(More)
