Information regarding the association of VTE with acquired and heritable thrombophilias has greatly expanded in the last 20 years, adding a new layer of(More)
OBJECTIVE The objective of the study was to determine whether single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) that influence the maternal innate immune response are associated with puerperal group A streptococcal sepsis. STUDY DESIGN Subjects with confirmed puerperal group A streptococal infection were prospectively identified in 2 tertiary care hospitals over 18(More)
New theoretical, methodological, and design frameworks for engaging classroom learning are provoked and supported by the highly interactive and group-centered capabilities of a new generation of classroom–based networks. This discussion group situates networked learning relative to a dialectic of (1) seeing mathematical and scientific structures as fully(More)
Experimental nonhuman primate models of asthma exhibit multiple features that are characteristic of an eosinophilic/T helper 2 (Th2)-high asthma subtype, characterized by the increased expression of Th2 cytokines and responsive genes, in humans. Here, we determine the molecular pathways that are present in a house dust mite-induced rhesus asthma model by(More)

PROBLEM Influenza infection severity may be mediated by estradiol and/or progesterone. METHOD OF STUDY An exploratory study was designed to evaluate 17-β-estradiol and progesterone on influenza infection and examine immune-mediated response in a mouse model. Inoculation with placebo or mouse-adapted H1N1 influenza virus occurred. Treatment groups included(More)
