The study objectives were to determine; (1) whether activated T cells could be generated from peripheral blood of patients immunized with their own cancer cells, (2) whether adoptive transfer of the activated T cells to patients had toxic effects and (3) whether the infused cells produced clinical responses. Study patients had recurrent, surgically(More)
Inhibitors of hepatitis C virus (HCV) protease have shown marked antiviral activity in short-term clinical studies in HCV-infected individuals. The interaction of the investigational HCV protease inhibitors VX-950 and SCH 503034 with ritonavir, a potent inhibitor of cytochrome P450 3A, was studied in vitro and in vivo. In rat and human liver microsomes, the(More)
The transient receptor potential vanilloid-1 (TRPV1) channel is involved in the development and maintenance of pain and participates in the regulation of temperature. The channel is activated by diverse agents, including capsaicin, noxious heat (≥ 43°C), acidic pH (< 6), and endogenous lipids including N-arachidonoyl dopamine (NADA). Antagonists that block(More)
To test the hypotheses that U.S. Virgin Islanders' knowledge about local coral reefs is correlated with behavior, and that different sociological groups of residents have different patterns of knowledge and behavior, a mixed approach to surveying residents was used: (1) personal interviews were held in public locations and (2) an online version of the(More)
Physiologically based pharmacokinetic (PBPK) modeling tools have become an integral part of the modern drug discovery-development process. However, accurate PK prediction of enabling formulations of poorly soluble compounds by applying PBPK modeling has been very limited. This is because current PBPK models rely only on thermodynamic drug solubility inputs(More)
The discovery and pharmacological evaluation of potent, selective, and orally bioavailable growth hormone secretagogue receptor (GHS-R) antagonists are reported. Previously, 2,4-diaminopyrimidine-based GHS-R antagonists reported from our laboratories have been shown to be dihydrofolate reductase (DHFR) inhibitors. By comparing the X-ray crystal structure of(More)
We describe a simple procedure for detecting fluconazole-resistant yeasts by a disk diffusion method. Forty clinical Candida sp. isolates were tested on RPMI-glucose agar with either 25- or 50-microgram fluconazole disks. With 25-microgram disks, zones of inhibition of >/=20 mm at 24 h accurately identified 29 of 29 isolates for which MICs were </=8(More)
A variety of simple models have been proposed to describe ecological succession (e.g., Connell and Slatyer 1977), but these models do not address some agents that may increase complexity. To determine the complexity of a natural sequence, four null hypotheses were tested: (1) seasonality of growth, recruitment, and mortality does not influence succession;(More)
The synthesis and structure-activity relationships of a series of 5-monosubstituted and 4,5-disubstituted 2-arylaminooxazoles as novel antagonists of the transient receptor potential vanilloid 1 (TRPV1) receptor are described. The 7-hydroxy group of the tetrahydronaphthyl moiety on the 2-amino substituent of the oxazole ring was important for obtaining(More)
