Deletions of regions at 13q14 have been detected by various genetic approaches in human cancers including prostate cancer. Several studies have defined one region of loss of heterozygosity (LOH) at 13q14 that seems to reside in a DNA segment of 7.1 cM between genetic markers D13S263 and D13S153. To define the smallest region of overlap (SRO) for deletion at(More)
Because aspirin (ASA) may affect peptic ulcer healing through actions on platelets (for example, by inhibiting release of growth factors), human foreskin fibroblast mitogenesis was used for two bioassays (24-h growth with 3H-thymidine incorporation and 5- to 6-day cell proliferation) for serum derived from collagen-aggregated platelet-rich plasma (PRP) or(More)
Genetic influences have an important role in the ageing process. The genetic factors that influence success in bodily ageing may also contribute to the successful ageing of cognitive abilities. A comparative genomics approach found longevity genes conserved between yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae and nematode Caenorhabditis elegans. We hypothesised that(More)
BACKGROUND Therapeutic hypothermia (TH) has been demonstrated to improve clinical outcomes after out-of-hospital ventricular fibrillation (VF) cardiac arrest. It remains unclear if TH can be safely and effectively used in the setting of traumatic arrest. Furthermore, the use of TH methods in the pre-hospital and transport environments remain poorly(More)
Lanas A, Haggerty P, Hirschowitz BI. In vitro studies of anti-inflammatory agents and prostaglandin E effects on stimulated normal human fibroblast cultures. Inflammopharmacology. 1994;2:377-387. To study the mechanisms whereby anti-inflammatory agents and prostaglandins may affect wound healing (fibroblast proliferation), we studied normal human(More)
OBJECTIVE We describe an atypical presentation of visceral leishmaniasis (VL) complicated by Epstein-Barr virus (EBV)-lymphoproliferative disorder and angioimmunoblastic T-cell lymphoma in a U.S. Government contractor recently deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan. METHODS We performed a search of PubMed (1966-2012) using the terms visceral, leishmaniasis,(More)
