Clinical experience has shown that it is often difficult to identify HLA-DR antigens on peripheral blood from long-term dialysis patients, leukemic patients, or blood in poor condition due to age of specimen or delivery conditions. We have found that we can accurately detect HLA-DR antigens on peripheral blood T cells that have been activated with PHA and(More)
BACKGROUND Endometriosis is a distressing gynecological disorder. Toll-like receptor 4 (TLR4) is specific for recognition of the molecular pattern of gram-negative bacteria. TLR4 is present on the surface of endometrial cells. Their role in the molecular pathogenesis of endometriosis is postulated through a novel explanation. OBJECTIVE To study the TLR4(More)
We screened a cohort of 181 patients with features of primary progressive ataxia and chorea for spinocerebellar ataxias 17 (SCA17) mutation after excluding other known SCAs, Huntington's disease (HD), dentatorubral-pallidoluysian atrophy (DRPLA), and non-genetic causes. This study included patients with known family history of SCA, those with sporadic onset(More)
In white members of our panel who have been repeatedly typed, close association between the HLA-D and DR specificities was observed. The typings were concordant with both haplotypes in 71% of the North American white panel. In American Indians concordance was observed in 47%, and in American black panel members in only 24%. One-way MLC reactions between(More)
