BACKGROUND Overexpression of the voltage-gated calcium channel (VGCC) alpha-2-delta1 subunit protein (Cav α2 δ1 ) has been shown to cause pain states. However, whether VGCC are involved in pain states driven by abnormal Cav α2 δ1 expression is not known. METHODS Intrathecal injection of N-, P/Q- and L-type VGCC blockers were tested in two models: a(More)
BACKGROUND Asian centers have consistently reported superior gastric cancer outcomes. Our study examines gastric cancer survival among different races and ethnicities in a large, heterogeneous USA population. PATIENTS AND METHODS Patients with gastric adenocarcinoma treated in Los Angeles County from 1988 to 2006 were identified from the Los Angeles(More)
Cauda equina nerve sheath tumors are usually small, well-encapsulated tumors. Sometimes they may attain very large proportions, cause extensive bony changes, and resemble ependymomas in the cauda equina. They may also infiltrate into adjacent soft tissue planes and retroperitoneal spaces and yet be histologically benign. An awareness of this entity ensures(More)
Recent genome-wide association studies (GWAS) of Hodgkin lymphoma (HL) have identified associations with genetic variation at both HLA and non-HLA loci; however, much of heritable HL susceptibility remains unexplained. Here we perform a meta-analysis of three HL GWAS totaling 1,816 cases and 7,877 controls followed by replication in an independent set of(More)
Using data collected with the D0 detector at the Fermilab Tevatron Collider, corresponding to 5.3 fb(-1) of integrated luminosity, we search for violation of Lorentz invariance by examining the tt[over ¯] production cross section in lepton+jets final states. We quantify this violation using the standard-model extension framework, which predicts a dependence(More)
Combined constraints from the CDF and D0 Collaborations on models of the Higgs boson with exotic spin J and parity P are presented and compared with results obtained assuming the standard model value JP=0+. Both collaborations analyzed approximately 10  fb(-) of proton-antiproton collisions with a center-of-mass energy of 1.96 TeV collected at the Fermilab(More)
We report the first observation of single-top-quark production in the s channel through the combination of the CDF and D0 measurements of the cross section in proton-antiproton collisions at a center-of-mass energy of 1.96 TeV. The data correspond to total integrated luminosities of up to 9.7 fb(-1) per experiment. The measured cross section is σ(s) =(More)
We present a measurement of the direct CP-violating charge asymmetry in B(±) mesons decaying to J/ψK(±) and J/ψπ(±) where J/ψ decays to μ(+) μ(-), using the full run II data set of 10.4 fb(-1) of proton-antiproton collisions collected using the D0 detector at the Fermilab Tevatron Collider. A difference in the yield of B(-) and B(+) mesons in these decays(More)
We perform a combination of searches for standard model Higgs boson production in p¯ p collisions recorded by the D0 detector at the Fermilab Tevatron Collider at a center of mass energy of √ s = 1.96 TeV. The different production and decay channels have been analyzed separately, with integrated luminosities of up to 9.7 fb −1 and for Higgs boson masses 90(More)
We present an improved determination of the total width of the top quark, Γt, using 5.4 fb −1 of integrated luminosity collected by the D0 Collaboration at the Tevatron p¯ p Collider. The total width Γt is extracted from the partial decay width Γ(t → W b) and the branching fraction B(t → W b). Γ(t → W b) is obtained from the t-channel single top quark(More)
