Immunohistochemistry is essential to obtain the correct diagnosis, and treatment protocols are controversial. OBJECTIVE Langerhans cell histiocytosis (LCH) is easy to be misdiagnosed because of its various clinic features and(More)
PURPOSE We attempted to reproduce published studies that evaluated whether the following factors influence choroidal neovascularization (CNV) induced by laser photocoagulation in murine retinas: small interfering RNA (siRNA), cobra venom factor, complement factors C3 and C5, and complement receptor C5aR. In addition, we explored whether laser-induced CNV in(More)
A good understanding about the structure and function of the envelope glycoprotein (Env) from primary human immunodeficiency virus-1 (HIV-1) isolates is important in facilitating the development of effective neutralizing antibody responses as a component of an effective HIV-1 vaccine. In the current study, the antigenicity of a panel of diverse HIV-1(More)
Proteins that are post-translationally adducted with 2-(ω-carboxyethyl)pyrrole (CEP) have been proposed to play a pathogenic role in age-related macular degeneration, by inducing angiogenesis in a Toll Like Receptor 2 (TLR2)-dependent manner. We have investigated the involvement of CEP adducts in angiogenesis and TLR activation, to assess the therapeutic(More)
