To facilitate collaborative research efforts between multi-investigator teams using DNA microarrays, we identified sources of error and data variability between laboratories and across microarray platforms, and methods to accommodate this variability. RNA expression data were generated in seven laboratories, which compared two standard RNA samples using 12(More)
There is considerable heterogeneity in immunological parameters between individuals, but its sources are largely unknown. To assess the relative contribution of heritable versus non-heritable factors, we have performed a systems-level analysis of 210 healthy twins between 8 and 82 years of age. We measured 204 different parameters, including cell population(More)
The long-term health outcome of prenatal exposure to arsenic has been associated with increased mortality in human populations. In this study, the extent to which maternal arsenic exposure impacts gene expression in the newborn was addressed. We monitored gene expression profiles in a population of newborns whose mothers experienced varying levels of(More)
Expression patterns of the 11 potential biomarkers of prenatal arsenic exposure. Absolute gene expresion levels are plotted versus toenail arsenic concentration. Circles represent each of the 32 subjects of the population with light blue representing the arsenic unexposed subjects and dark blue representing the arsenic exposed subjects.
The immunology database and analysis portal (ImmPort) system is the archival repository and dissemination vehicle for clinical and molecular datasets created by research consortia funded by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases Division of Allergy, Immunology, and Transplantation. With nearly 100 datasets now publicly available and(More)
We report the inhibition of the causative agents of dental caries, Streptococcus mutans and other oral streptococci, by the antimicrobially active ingredients of the hop plant (Humulus lupulus L.). The hop constituents studied were purified beta acid, xanthohumol, isoalpha acid and tetra iso-alpha acid. Cruder hop extracts were also investigated. The(More)
Human lymphoblastoid cells derived from different healthy individuals display considerable variation in their transcription profiles. Here we show that such variation in gene expression underlies interindividual susceptibility to DNA damaging agents. The results demonstrate the massive differences in sensitivity across a diverse cell line panel exposed to(More)
Data generated by the numerous clinical trials conducted annually worldwide have the potential to be extremely beneficial to the scientific and patient communities. This potential is well recognized and efforts are being made to encourage the release of raw patient-level data from these trials to the public. The issue of sharing clinical trial data has(More)
In the present paper, we report the preparation of hybrid temperature-sensitive microgels which include magnetite nanoparticles in their structure. Polymeric microgels have been prepared by surfactant-free emulsion copolymerization of acetoacetoxyethyl methacrylate (AAEM) and N-vinylcaprolactam (VCL) in water with a water-soluble azo-initiator. The obtained(More)
Broad open access to entire clinical research studies data is on the rise. Public access to raw clinical research data has created tremendous opportunity to evaluate new research hypotheses that were not originally formulated in the studies; by reanalyzing data from a study, by performing cross analysis of multiple studies, or by combining study data with(More)
