In Alzheimer's disease, aggregates of Aβ and tau in amyloid plaques and neurofibrillary tangles spread progressively across brain tissues following a characteristic pattern, implying a tissue-specific vulnerability to the disease. We report a transcriptional analysis of healthy brains and identify an expression signature that predicts-at ages well before(More)
It is well-established that widespread transcriptional changes accompany the onset and progression of Alzheimer's disease. Because of the multifactorial nature of this neurodegenerative disorder and its complex relationship with aging, however, it remains unclear whether such changes are the result of nonspecific dysregulation and multisystem failure or(More)
This Head and Neck Intergroup analysis was undertaken to evaluate further previously reported observations linking blood transfusions, which were given to patients with head and neck cancer, to a worse prognosis. This study population represents those patients registered to the Head and Neck Intergroup Trial 0034 for previously untreated resectable squamous(More)
Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a heterogeneous degenerative motor neuron disease linked to numerous genetic mutations in apparently unrelated proteins. These proteins, including SOD1, TDP-43, and FUS, are highly aggregation-prone and form a variety of intracellular inclusion bodies that are characteristic of different neuropathological subtypes of(More)
