Pulmonary Pathology of Early-Phase 2019 Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) Pneumonia in Two Patients With Lung Cancer
Abstract There is currently a lack of pathologic data on the novel coronavirus (severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2) pneumonia, or coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), from autopsyExpand
Pathological study of the 2019 novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) through postmortem core biopsies
Data on pathologic changes of the 2019 novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) are scarce. To gain knowledge about the pathology that may contribute to disease progression and fatality, we performedExpand
Steatosis and liver cancer in transgenic mice expressing the structural and nonstructural proteins of hepatitis C virus.
BACKGROUND & AIMS The aim of this study was to determine whether expression of hepatitis C virus proteins alters hepatic morphology or function in the absence of inflammation. METHODS TransgenicExpand
Characterization of Dobrava virus: A hantavirus from Slovenia, Yugoslavia
Small mammals were collected in natural foci of hemorrhagic fever with renal syndrome (HFRS) in Slovenia, Yugoslavia, and a hantavirus was isolated from the lungs of an Apodemus flavicol lis capturedExpand
West Nile virus infection in the golden hamster (Mesocricetus auratus): a model for West Nile encephalitis.
This report describes a new hamster model for West Nile (WN) virus encephalitis. Following intraperitoneal inoculation of a New York isolate of WN virus, hamsters had moderate viremia of 5 to 6 daysExpand
An animal model for studying the pathogenesis of chikungunya virus infection.
Newborn and 14-day-old mice inoculated subcutaneously with chikungunya virus (CHIKV) developed lethargy, difficulty walking, dragging of hind limbs, and reduced weight gain within 7-10 days afterExpand
Arginase-1: A New Immunohistochemical Marker of Hepatocytes and Hepatocellular Neoplasms
The distinction of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) from metastatic tumor in the liver often presents a diagnostic challenge that carries significant impact on prognostication and therapy. The numberExpand
The Proteinase-Activated Receptor 2 Is Involved in Nociception
The proteinase-activated receptor 2 is expressed on a subset of primary afferent neurons and may participate in the neurogenic component of inflammation. We hypothesized that this receptor may alsoExpand
Antigenic and molecular characterization of hantavirus isolates from China.
Hemorrhagic fever with renal syndrome (HFRS) is caused by certain viruses in the genus Hantavirus, family Bunyaviridae, and is a major public health problem in China. By using molecular andExpand
Visualizing hepatitis C virus infections in human liver by two-photon microscopy.
BACKGROUND & AIMS Although hepatitis C virus (HCV) is a common cause of cirrhosis and liver cancer, efforts to understand the pathogenesis of HCV infection have been limited by the low abundance ofExpand
