We conducted a 10-yr prospective study of peak bone mass and its change in 604 women, aged 24-44 yr at study initiation, and related changes in bone mineral density (BMD) and osteocalcin (OCN) concentrations to estrogen receptor (ER) alpha gene polymorphisms in 442 of these women. We examined the association of ER alpha PvuII and XbaI polymorphisms with the(More)
BACKGROUND Erwinia asparaginase is a Food and Drug Administration approved agent for the treatment of acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) for patients who develop hypersensitivity to Escherichia coli derived asparaginases. Erwinia asparaginase is efficacious, but has a short half-life, requiring six doses to replace one dose of the most commonly used(More)
Brain derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) has been shown to ameliorate recovery after intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH). The injured brain tissue after ICH is surrounded by hematoma formed from hemorrhage. Fibrin is abundant in hematoma, which could be a binding target for BDNF. In this work, we have fused a fibrin-binding domain (FBD) to BDNF (FBD-BDNF), and(More)
Objective. To study the effects of vitamin K on bone metabolize in simulated weightlessness rats. Method. Male SD rats were divided into three groups (n = 9): the free active control (FAC), the tail-suspended control (SC), and the tail-suspended group treated with vitamin K (SVK) (50 mg/kg weight/d). The experiment lasted for 3 weeks. Bone biomechanical(More)
