Alveolar macrophages (AMs) from immunocompetent animals were isolated from bronchoalveolar lavage and labeled with the fluorescent marker 1,1'-dioctadecyl-3,3,3',3'-tetramethylindocarbocyanine perchlorate (DiI). These AMs were administered intratracheally into mechanically ventilated SCID mice. From 1 to 28 days later, the recipient mice underwent(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this article is to describe the development and testing of a new tool for collecting patient information for diabetes self-management education (DSME): the Diabetes Self-management Assessment Report Tool (D-SMART).
