The strength of synaptic communication at central synapses depends on the number of ionotropic glutamate receptors, particularly the class gated by the agonist AMPA (AMPARs). Cornichon proteins, evolutionarily conserved endoplasmic reticulum cargo adaptors, modify the properties of vertebrate AMPARs when coexpressed in heterologous cells. However, the(More)
To date, our understanding of a normal immune system is far behind that of other healthy organ systems. One reason for this is the lack of standardization in the lab techniques, especially flow cytometry. To take a step towards the characterization of a normal immune system, we re-analyzed and combined data that was made publicly available through the(More)
According to the PubMed resource from the U.S. National Library of Medicine, over 750,000 scientific articles have been published in the ~5000 biomedical journals worldwide in the year 2007 alone. The vast majority of these publications include results from hypothesis-driven experimentation in overlapping biomedical research domains. Unfortunately, the(More)
INTRODUCTION In the present study, we sought to identify markers in patients with anti-neutrophil cytoplasmic antibody (ANCA)-associated vasculitis (AAV) that distinguish those achieving remission at 6 months following rituximab or cyclophosphamide treatment from those for whom treatment failed in the Rituximab in ANCA-Associated Vasculitis (RAVE) trial.

We have evaluated the laboratory performance and clinical usefulness of the Roche fructosamine kit. As used with an Abbott ABA 100 bichromatic analyzer, the kit response varied linearly with fructosamine concentration to 5.0 mmol/L (deoxymorpholinofructose equivalents). Interbatch precision was 4.1% and 3.6% for respective fructosamine concentrations of 3.2(More)
RETURN SERVICE REQUESTED " SAN ANTONIO DRAWING WINDOW " BY DALE CHIHULY is featured on the second floor of the Business Building. Stepping out of his usual realm as a blown-glass artist, Chihuly designed this piece to create his own version of a stained-glass window. " San Antonio Drawing Window " features eight glass panels with abstract, hand-painted(More)
The purpose of the present investigation is to examine the impact of a telemanagement component on an outpatient disease management program in patients with heart failure (HF). A total of 282 patients in whom HF was diagnosed and who were enrolled in an outpatient HF program were included in this analysis. One hundred fifty-eight patients additionally(More)

Four cases of benign cystic mediastinal teratoma containing pancreatic tissue have been studied using immunohistochemical and morphometric techniques. The different pancreatic endocrine cell types were stained using antibodies to insulin, glucagon, somatostatin, and pancreatic polypeptide, and the volume density of each cell type was estimated by point(More)
M obile telecommunication technologies have spurred growth and innovation in multiple sectors including commerce, media, and finance. Arguably, health care is the sector in which the potential of these new technologies is both the greatest and the most unrecognized. With the rapid adoption of electronic health records (EHRs) and patient access to mobile(More)
