Eleven susceptibility loci for late-onset Alzheimer's disease (LOAD) were identified by previous studies; however, a large portion of the genetic risk for this disease remains unexplained. We conducted a large, two-stage meta-analysis of genome-wide association studies (GWAS) in individuals of European ancestry. In stage 1, we used genotyped and imputed(More)
PURPOSE This open-label, prospective, multicenter single-arm phase II study combined bevacizumab (BV) with radiation therapy (RT) and temozolomide (TMZ) for the treatment of newly diagnosed glioblastoma (GBM). The objectives were to determine the efficacy of this treatment combination and the associated toxicity. PATIENTS AND METHODS Seventy patients with(More)
BACKGROUND There is much discussion in the cancer drug development community about how to incorporate molecular tools into early-stage clinical trials to assess target modulation, measure anti-tumor activity, and enrich the clinical trial population for patients who are more likely to benefit. Small, molecularly focused clinical studies offer the promise of(More)
We have demonstrated that the kidney plays an important role in iron balance and that metabolically significant reabsorption of this ion occurs in the loop of Henle and the collecting ducts [Wareing M, Ferguson CJ, Green R, Riccardi D, and Smith CP. J Physiol (Lond) 524: 581-586, 2000]. To test the possibility that the divalent metal transporter DMT1(More)
OBJECTIVE Bevacizumab has been shown to be effective in the treatment of recurrent glioblastoma in combination with chemotherapy compared with historic controls but not in randomized trials. METHODS We conducted a retrospective analysis of patients treated for recurrent glioblastoma with bevacizumab vs a control group of patients, comparing(More)
The methionine choline-deficient (MCD) diet results in liver injury similar to human nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH). The aims of this study were to define mechanisms of MCD-induced steatosis in insulin-resistant db/db and insulin-sensitive db/m mice. MCD-fed db/db mice developed more hepatic steatosis and retained more insulin resistance than MCD-fed(More)
Without transplantation, approximately 50-90% of all patients with fulminant hepatic failure (FHF) die. This poor outcome is due in part to the absence of an appropriate animal model, which would allow for a greater understanding of the pathophysiology of this syndrome. Given the reports of liver injury in humans and livestock fed cycad palm nuts on the(More)
OBJECTIVE To explore the association between high homocysteine levels and risk of Alzheimer disease (AD) in the Washington Heights-Inwood Columbia Aging Project (WHICAP). METHODS The authors obtained fasting plasma samples in 909 elderly subjects chosen at random from a cohort of Medicare recipients; there was longitudinal data in 679 subjects without(More)
PURPOSE Despite the widespread use of intraarterial thrombolytic therapy for peripheral arterial occlusive disease, a randomized study comparing its efficacy with that of operative intervention has never been performed. This study evaluates the potential of intraarterial urokinase infusion to provide clinical benefits in patients with acute peripheral(More)
Hip axis length (HAL), a measure of femoral geometry, has been shown to predict hip fracture in white women over the age of 67 years, independently of bone mineral density at the femoral neck. A cross-sectional study of 304 pairs of female twins [176 monozygous (MZ) and 128 dizygous (DZ)], aged between 10 and 89 years, was performed to examine the influence(More)
