OBJECTIVES In this article, we report our decade-long experience in using modified 4D-computed tomography in combination with ultrasonography (Mod 4D-CT/US) to localize abnormal parathyroid glands in patients with primary hyperparathyroidism. STUDY DESIGN Retrospective medical record review at a university-based academic medical center. METHODS Patients(More)
Isoprenylcysteine (IPC) molecules modulate G-protein-coupled receptor signalling. The archetype of this class is N-acetyl-S-farnesyl-l-cysteine (AFC). Topical application of AFC locally inhibits skin inflammation and elicitation of contact hypersensitivity in vivo. However, the mechanism of these anti-inflammatory effects is not well understood.

OBJECTIVE To investigate whether parathyroid gland weight has an impact on the accuracy of preoperative localization of parathyroid adenomas with modified 4 dimensional computed tomography/ultrasound. And to determine if the weight of parathyroid adenomas can be calculated accurately based on the dimensions of the gland on the CT images. STUDY DESIGN Case(More)
BACKGROUND Varicella-zoster virus is a member of the herpes virus family that causes varicella during a primary infection and herpes zoster (HZ) when reactivated. Patients who are immunocompromised often have atypical presentations of HZ and experience complications such as multidermal involvement and dissemination. OBJECTIVE We report a case of(More)
We have examined the electrophoretic pattern of mannose-labelled glycopeptides derived from liver, pancreas, heart, brain, lung and kidney. The various organs were removed from white Swiss mice of 4-5, 20 and 40 days of age as well as from adult animals. Our data demonstrated that each organ had a characteristic ratio of acidic to neutral glycopeptides and(More)
