Although parathyroid hormone (PTH) has long been known to act as a bone anabolic agent when administered intermittently, the exact underlying mechanisms remain largely unknown. Amphiregulin (AREG), a ligand of the epidermal growth factor receptor, has been identified to be a PTH target gene in vitro and in vivo. Here, we used female global AREG knockout(More)
Host immunity plays an important role in neoplasia. Neoplastic activity is known to correspond with the disturbances in immunological mechanisms. T-lymphocytes DNA replication and mitosis are determined by a critical threshold of signals generated by the interaction between interleukin-2 (IL-2) and its receptors.

The HLA antigen distribution was studied in 37 north Indian patients with myasthenia gravis. The control group consisted of 118 normal, healthy individuals of the same ethnic group. The antigens showing the highest frequency were Bw21 (18.9% vs 4.2% p less than 0.005), Bw35 (24.3% vs 6.8%, p less than 0.005) and A9 (51.3% vs 30.5%, p less than 0.025).(More)
The extent of nerve damage was assessed in the sciatic nerves of CBA/J mice with experimental leprosy by the teased single fibre preparations. Morphological changes in the fibres were observed upto 15 months of infection and compared with control animals of the same age groups. During 4 to 9 months period, the fibres showed paranodal enlargements, widening(More)
