In this work, the B-->Z transition of poly(dG-dC).poly(dG-dC) and the B-->A transition of poly(dG).poly(dC) and of calf thymus (CT) DNA fragments modified by antitumor bifunctional polynuclear platinum complexes were investigated by circular dichroism (CD). The transition from the B- to Z-form of DNA was inducible with all three compounds studied, as(More)
BACKGROUND Many studies have documented the increased risk of non-melanoma skin cancers in organ transplant recipients (OTRs). However, the incidence of melanoma is less well defined. To date, there have been no studies on the incidence of melanoma in Canadian OTRs. Herein, we determine the incidence and clinical features of melanoma in a cohort of OTRs in(More)
BACKGROUND Although treatment-as-prevention (TasP) efforts are a new cornerstone of efforts to respond to the HIV/AIDS pandemic, their effects among people who use drugs (PWUD) have not been fully evaluated. This study characterizes temporal trends in CD4+ T-cell (CD4) count at ART initiation and rates of virological response among HIV-positive PWUD during(More)
Mucopolysaccharidoses (MPSs) are a group of inherited lysosomal storage disorders characterized by deficiencies in specific enzymes involved in the catabolism of glycosaminoglycans (GAGs). These deficiencies cause excessive metabolites to accumulate in multiple organs. There are eight different MPS disorders, contributing to the wide variation in clinical(More)
