Parallels between T cell kinetics in mice and men have fueled the idea that a young mouse is a good model system for a young human, and an old mouse, for an elderly human. By combining in vivo kinetic labeling using deuterated water, thymectomy experiments, analysis of T cell receptor excision circles and CD31 expression, and mathematical modeling, we have(More)
The leukocyte-associated Ig-like receptor-1 (LAIR-1) is capable of inhibiting immune cell function through interaction with collagens. LAIR is expressed on the majority of peripheral blood mononuclear cells. The abundant expression of both receptor and ligand calls for regulatory mechanisms to relieve the continuous interaction between collagens and LAIR-1.(More)
OBJECTIVE Routine electrophysiological testing is often normal in the evaluation of painful diabetic neuropathy, as it is unable to detect dysfunction of thinly myelinated (Aδ) and unmyelinated (C) small fibers. Although cutaneous silent periods (CSP) and quantitative sudomotor axon reflex testing (QSART) respectively evaluate these fiber types in the(More)
