Due to the putative involvement of dopaminergic circuits in depression, triple reuptake inhibitors are being developed as a new class of antidepressant, which is hypothesized to produce a more rapid onset and better efficacy than current antidepressants selective for serotonin or norepinephrine neurotransmission.(More)
Most currently prescribed antidepressants act by selectively increasing the synaptic availability of serotonin or norepinephrine, or through action on both serotonin and norepinephrine. However, most therapies require several weeks of treatment before improvement of symptoms is observed and not all patients respond to antidepressant treatment. One strategy(More)
BACKGROUND Elevated Plexin-B1 expression has been found in diverse human cancers and in non-neoplastic tissues, and it mediates diverse biological and pathological activities. However, whether or not Plexin-B1 expression is involved in human ovarian tumors remains unclear. In the present study, Plexin-B1 expression was explored in benign and malignant human(More)
—This paper presents a fully integrated energy harvester that maintains 35% end-to-end efficiency when harvesting from a 0.84 mm solar cell in low light condition of 260 lux, converting 7 nW input power from 250 mV to 4 V. Newly proposed self-oscillating switched-capacitor (SC) DC-DC voltage doublers are cascaded to form a complete harvester, with(More)
Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is an autoimmune rheumatological disease thought to have substantial genetic contributions. Several genetic factors involved in the susceptibility to psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis (PsA) have been identified with genome-wide association studies, including human leukocyte antigen (HLA)-C, junction adhesion molecule 2 (JAM2) and(More)
The transsphenoidal approach to the pituitary is widely used in pituitary surgery. Even though there are some landmarks for internal carotid artery (ICA) on the wall of the sphenoid sinus, it is not rare to get the artery injured during surgery. We found that the most important landmark, carotid prominence, matched with ICA in merely 37.5% of subjects. In(More)
E26 transformation-specific-1 (ETS1) and WDFY family member 4 (WDFY4) are closely related with systemic lupus erythematosus. We hypothesized that ETS1 and WDFY4 polymorphisms may contribute to rheumatoid arthritis (RA) susceptibility. We studied ETS1 rs1128334 G/A and WDFY4 rs7097397 A/G gene polymorphisms in 329 patients with RA and 697 controls in a(More)
There are many sources of analytical variability in ligand binding assays (LBA). One strategy to reduce variability has been duplicate analyses. With recent advances in LBA technologies, it is conceivable that singlet analysis is possible. We retrospectively evaluated singlet analysis using Gyrolab data. Relative precision of duplicates compared to singlets(More)
