In this study we demonstrate perforin-mediated cytotoxic effector function is necessary for viral clearance and may directly contribute to the development of neurologic deficits after demyelination in the Theiler's murine encephalomyelitis virus (TMEV) model of multiple sclerosis. We previously demonstrated major histocompatability complex (MHC) class(More)
Follicular thyroid carcinoma (FTC) tends to metastasize to remote organs rather than local lymph nodes. Separation of FTC from follicular thyroid adenoma (FTA) relies on detection of vascular and/or capsular invasion. We investigated which vascular markers, CD31, CD34 and D2-40 (lymphatic vessel marker), can best evaluate vascular invasion and why FTC tends(More)
BACKGROUND Immunohistochemistry (IHC) for napsin A has been widely used to support a diagnosis of lung adenocarcinoma with high sensitivity. In this study, we evaluated immunoreactivity for napsin A in a broad spectrum of renal neoplasms by using tissue microarrays (TMA). METHODS Duplicate TMA of 159 surgically excised renal neoplasms of various types(More)
DA and other TO subgroup strains of Theiler's murine encephalomyelitis virus synthesize a protein called L* which interferes with DA virus clearance from the central nervous system of susceptible SJL mice, thereby fostering virus persistence and a late demyelinating disease. By using CD4 (-/-) and CD8 (-/-) mice as well as adoptive transfer studies we(More)
