BACKGROUND From December 1987 through August 2004, lung tissue, nasopharyngeal swabs, and colon swab specimens obtained during 1263 autopsies of infants and young children were examined to assess the role of viruses in deaths of children aged <2 years. METHODS Multiple cell cultures were used to isolate viruses. With 4 exceptions, virus isolates were(More)
Undoubtedly ovarian cancer is a vexing, incurable disease for patients with recurrent cancer and therapeutic options are limited. Although the polycomb group gene, Bmi-1 that regulates the self-renewal of normal stem and progenitor cells has been implicated in the pathogenesis of many human malignancies, yet a role for Bmi-1 in influencing chemotherapy(More)
BACKGROUND Epithelial ovarian cancer is the leading cause of gynecologic cancer deaths. Most patients respond initially to platinum-based chemotherapy after surgical debulking, however relapse is very common and ultimately platinum resistance emerges. Understanding the mechanism of tumor growth, metastasis and drug resistant relapse will profoundly impact(More)
BACKGROUND Influenza infections pose a serious burden of illness in the United States. We explored age, influenza strains, and seasonal epidemic curves in relation to influenza-associated mortality. METHODS The state of Wisconsin death records for the years 1967-2004 were analyzed for three distinct populations: children, general population, and elderly.(More)
Ge nanocrystals ͑NCs͒ embedded in silicon dioxide ͑SiO 2 ͒ matrix are grown by radio-frequency magnetron sputtering and studied in order to understand the origin of ultraviolet ͑UV͒ and blue photoluminescence ͑PL͒ from the NC-SiO 2 system. Ge NCs of diameter 7–8 nm are formed after postdeposition annealing, as confirmed by transmission electron microscopy(More)
We report here the whole-genome sequence of the USA300 strain of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), designated ATCC BAA-1680, and commonly referred to as community-associated MRSA (CA-MRSA). This clinical MRSA isolate is commercially available from the American Type Culture Collection (ATCC) and is widely utilized as a control strain for(More)
