The robust inflammatory response that occurs during ischemia reperfusion (IR) injury recruits factors from both the innate and adaptive immune systems. However the contribution of platelets and their products such as Platelet Factor 4 (PF4; CXCL4), during the pathogenesis of IR injury has not been thoroughly investigated. We show that a deficiency in PF4(More)
Several innate and adaptive immune cell types participate in ischemia/reperfusion induced tissue injury. Amongst them, platelets have received little attention as contributors in the process of tissue damage after ischemia reperfusion (I/R) injury. It is currently unknown whether platelets participate through the immunologically important molecules(More)
PURPOSE African Americans (AA) are at a higher risk of colorectal cancer (CRC) and some studies report a higher frequency of microsatellite instability (MSI) in this population while others report lower frequency compared to Caucasians. AIM To determine and evaluate the association of race and clinical factors with MSI frequency through meta- analysis. (More)
CONTEXT Thyrotoxic periodic paralysis (TPP) is a potentially life-threatening complication of hyperthyroidism that is underdiagnosed and frequently missed. It is relatively common in Asian men with Graves' disease. TPP attacks are frequently associated with hypokalemia. CASE REPORT Here we report a non-Asian female patient with Graves' disease, who(More)
Cooperative link layer protocols are typically used in single hop networks. In such protocols, a special node called the relay node helps deliver frames from a source to a destination. The performance benefits of cooperation at link layer can be streamlined into multi-hop networks as well. In multi-hop networks, a frame is sent from an original source to(More)
Background: The auditory and vestibular systems work together to process sensations of sound and movement. Auditory processing problems that may arise as a result of vestibular dysfunction include detecting likenesses and differences in words, attending to the teacher's voice in the presence of background noise, difficulty following directions, expressive(More)
