The performance of a silica chip-based resequencing method, the Affymetrix HIV PRT 440 assay (hereafter referred to as the Affymetrix assay), was evaluated on a panel of well-characterized nonclade B viral isolates and on isolates exhibiting length polymorphisms. Sequencing of human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) pol cDNAs from clades A, C, D, E, and(More)
For bronchogenic carcinoma, if and when the sequential process of carcinogenesis is reversible is fundamental to chemoprevention research. In our hamster model, focally originating non-small cell lung carcinoma (NSCLC) develops via a reproducible sequential process of carcinogenesis by 180 days after endobronchial sustained-release implants (SRIs) of 10%(More)
Their proximity to Eastern Virginia's abundant waterways has given the authors experience in managing the destructive tenosynovitis and deep tissue infections caused by M marinum. They present nine cases, discuss diagnosis and treatment, review the literature, and urge urban physicians to be on the alert for the disease in patients recently returned from(More)
A group of experts gathered in Indianapolis in December 2011 to address lingering concerns related to uterus transplantation (UTn). They represent a multi-national group of four research teams who have worked for over 15 years on bringing UTn to reality for patients. Presented here are a set of parameters that must be considered in order for UTn to become(More)
Administration of short-term tocolytic agents can prolong pregnancy for women in preterm labor. Prolonging pregnancy has many benefits because it allows for other proven interventions, such as antenatal corticosteroid administration, to be accomplished. This review provides an overview of currently utilized tocolytic agents and the evidence demonstrating(More)
The treatment of early stage cervical malignancy in a pregnant patient remains a challenge. We report the successful application of a vaginal radical trachelectomy (VRT) during pregnancy to treat a patient diagnosed with early stage cervical cancer and subsequently review the published work. A 22-year-old female diagnosed at the gestational age of 17 weeks(More)
