Basic fibroblast growth factor (bFGF or FGF-2), vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), and endothelin-1 (ET-1) are peptide growth factors (PGF) mediating normal lung development, maturation, injury, and repair. These PGF may therefore be involved in the pathogenesis of bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD). We hypothesized that elevated levels of these PGF(More)
Importance Persistent postconcussion symptoms (PPCS) pose long-term challenges and can negatively affect patients' health-related quality of life (HRQoL). To date, no large comprehensive study has addressed the association between PPCS and HRQoL. Objectives To determine the association between HRQoL and PPCS at 4 weeks after concussion and assess the(More)
Endogenous mouse mammary tumor proviruses (MMTV; Mtv loci) deletes Vbeta6 expressing T cells in the thymus of Mtv-7(+) DBA/2 (H2(d)) mice through negative selection. We found that in Mtv-7(-) BALB/c (H2(d)) mice, Vbeta6 is a dominant V gene used in T cell responses to an 18 amino acid long peptide antigen: EYKEYAEYAEYAEYAEYA [abbreviated as K5 or(More)
