OBJECTIVE Ankylosing spondylitis (AS), a chronic inflammatory disorder, has a notable association with HLA-B27. One hypothesis suggests that a common antigen that binds to HLA-B27 is important for AS disease pathogenesis. This study was undertaken to determine sequences and motifs that are shared among HLA-B27-positive AS patients, using T cell repertoire(More)
The history of ophthalmology in Cincinnati dates back to 1827, when Dr. Daniel Drake founded the Eye Institute of Cincinnati. Since that time, many other individuals have influenced the course of ophthalmology in the city and region.

A grossly cystic retinoblastoma, presumably a form of the diffuse infiltrating type, mimicked uveitis in an 81/2-year-old boy. A review of 44 cases indicated that grossly (clinically) detectably cysts are rare in this neoplasm, although microcysts are relatively common. Lesions of this nature, especially if presenting with a history of trauma, as in our(More)
Monitoring antigen-specific T cells is critical for the study of immune responses and development of biomarkers and immunotherapeutics. We developed a novel multiplex assay that combines conventional immune monitoring techniques and immune receptor repertoire sequencing to enable identification of T cells specific to large numbers of antigens(More)
