Delivery of small interfering RNAs (siRNAs) into cells is a key obstacle to their therapeutic application. We designed a protamine-antibody fusion protein to deliver siRNA to HIV-infected or envelope-transfected cells. The fusion protein (F105-P) was designed with the protamine coding sequence linked to the C terminus of the heavy chain Fab fragment of an(More)
PURPOSE To measure the mean diffusional age-related changes of the brain over the full human life span by using diffusion-weighted spin-echo single-shot echo-planar magnetic resonance (MR) imaging and sequential whole-brain apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) histogram analysis and, secondarily, to build mathematical models of these normal age-related(More)
The purpose of this study was to determine the efficacy of CT to predict the development of bile leaks in hepatic trauma. This HIPAA-compliant retrospective study was IRB approved and consent was waived. All patients who sustained hepatic trauma between January 1, 2006, and January 31, 2012, and who underwent CT and hepatobiliary scans during the same(More)
To determine whether the diameter of intrahepatic and extrahepatic bile ducts and pancreatic ducts in patients on methadone maintenance therapy is increased when compared with control subjects. Between January 1, 2000 and March 15, 2013, a total of 97 patients (mean age 49.9, range 22–79, 65 male, 32 female) were identified who were receiving chronic(More)
Introduction: The apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) age dependency of the human brain have been reported by many groups covering various limited age ranges, and performed by small region-of-interest measurements. Some studies have shown a general trend toward decreasing whole brain ADC's as the brain develops from infancy toward adolescence and remaining(More)
