OBJECTIVE To investigate age-related variations in results of hematologic and plasma biochemical tests performed on dogs of 2 common breeds. DESIGN Prospective cohort study. ANIMALS 34 Beagles and 44 Labrador Retrievers. PROCEDURE Blood samples were collected throughout the dogs' lives; 589 samples were collected from the Beagles and 964 samples were(More)
Carnitine palmitoyltransferase II (CPT II) deficiency, an autosomal recessive disorder of fatty-acid oxidation, presents as three distinct phenotypes (neonatal, infantile, and adult onset). In order to investigate the molecular basis of these three phenotypes, six patients with CPT II deficiency have been studied. All six unrelated patients in this study(More)
CD8+ anti-human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) suppressor activity (CASA) defines the noncytolytic suppression of HIV mediated by secreted soluble factors. Changes in CASA in patients receiving combination antiretroviral therapy have not been described. Thirty-two HIV-infected patients receiving mono- or dual therapy for 52 weeks followed by highly active(More)
Results from two studies on longitudinal friendship networks are presented, exploring the impact of a gratitude intervention on positive and negative affect dynamics in a social network. The gratitude intervention had been previously shown to increase positive affect and decrease negative affect in an individual but dynamic group effects have not been(More)
A novel mutation was identified in two unrelated patients with medium-chain acyl-CoA dehydrogenase deficiency. First, a 19-year-old Caucasian female presented with a devastating illness, resulting in sudden death in adulthood which is unusual. The second patient, now a 3.5-year-old male, presented at 17 months of age with a hypoglycemic seizure and(More)
A panel of 22 CD8+ T cell lines, with a broad range of CD8+ anti-HIV-1 suppressor activity (CASA) were generated from a single patient with HIV-1 infection. CD8+ T cell lines with either strong or weak CASA were examined and compared for cell surface and intracellular markers, constitutive chemokine and lymphokine mRNA levels and inducible lymphokine(More)
We report on a family in which an X;14 translocation has been identified. A phenotypically normal female, carrier of an apparently balanced X-autosome translocation t(X;14)(q22;q24.3) in all her cells and a small interstitial deletion of band 15q112 in some of her cells had 2 offspring. She represents a fifth case of balanced X-autosome translocation with(More)
