Behavioral manipulations such as housing in an enriched environment have been shown to increase brain weight and visual cortical thickness. The present study was designed to test whether skill learning or repetitive movements can alter the thickness of the motor cortex. One group of 6-mo-old Long-Evans female rats learned motor skills on an obstacle course(More)
This experiment addressed (1) the importance of conjunctive stimulus presentation for morphological plasticity of cerebellar Purkinje cells and inhibitory interneurons and (2) whether plasticity is restricted to the spiny branches of Purkinje cells, which receive parallel fiber input. These issues were investigated in naive rabbits and in rabbits that(More)
An HIV-negative man with pharyngeal gonorrhea had a positive test-of-cure (nucleic acid amplification test) result 7 days after treatment with ceftriaxone/azithromycin. Neisseria gonorrhoeae Multi-Antigen Sequencing Type 1407 and mosaic pen A (XXXIV) gene were identified in the test-of-cure specimen, and culture was negative. Retreatment with ceftriaxone(More)
A 30-cytokine protein microarray was used to screen for cytokine profile changes in HIV-infected patients in response to highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART). Serum cytokines showing significant changes were confirmed by enzyme immunoassay. Monokine induced by gamma-interferon (MIG) and interferon-inducible protein-10 (IP-10) levels significantly(More)
Viral load monitoring has become the standard of care in clinical practice to assess risk for disease progression and to monitor treatment response. Furthermore, viral load monitoring has contributed greatly to the understanding of HIV disease pathogenesis and response to various antiretroviral regimens, and has broadened its applications to include blood(More)
