Bisphosphonates (BPs) are widely used in the treatment of several bone diseases, such as osteoporosis and cancers that have metastasized to bone, by virtue of their ability to inhibit osteoclastic bone resorption. Previously, it was shown that osteoclasts present at different bone sites have different characteristics. We hypothesized that BPs could have(More)
Antagonists of neurokinin receptors such as CP-643,051 are presently under investigation as potential antidepressants, but little is known about the brain uptake and distribution of these agents. We developed a method for the efficient N-[11C]methylation of CP-122,721, yielding the NK1 antagonist N-[11C]methyl CP-643,051. The brain uptake and distribution(More)
The perspective that naive B-cell recognition of antigen in the absence of T-cell help causes cell death or anergy is supported by in vivo studies of B cells that are continuously exposed to self-antigens. However, intravital imaging suggests that early B-cell recognition of large foreign antigens may be transient. Whether B cells are tolerized or can be(More)
