BACKGROUND The pathogenesis of atherosclerosis is currently being investigated in genetically engineered small animals. Methods to follow the time course of the developing pathology and/or the responses to therapy in vivo are limited. METHODS AND RESULTS To address this problem, we developed a noninvasive MR microscopy technique to study in vivo(More)
Two strains of ApoE-deficient mice were found to have markedly different plasma lipoprotein profiles and susceptibility to atherosclerosis when fed either a low-fat chow or a high-fat Western-type diet. FVB/NJ ApoE-deficient (FVB E0) mice had higher total cholesterol, HDL cholesterol, ApoA1, and ApoA2 levels when compared with C57BL/6J ApoE-deficient (C57(More)
OBJECTIVE To examine the allelic association of the single nucleotide polymorphism (CTLA4A/G) in exon 1 of the cytotoxic T lymphocyte antigen-4 (CTLA4) gene with early rheumatoid arthritis (RA). METHODS One hundred and twenty-three unrelated white probands with early RA from the north-east of England and 349 local ethnically matched controls were studied.(More)
BACKGROUND Intercondylar femoral bone removal during posterior stabilized (PS) total knee arthroplasty (TKA) makes many cruciate substituting implant designs less appealing than cruciate retaining implants. Bone stock conservation is considered fundamental in the prevision of future revision surgeries. The purpose of this study was to compare the quantity(More)
