The mechanisms of photodynamic therapy induced anti-tumor immunity
Photodynamic therapy (PDT) has long been shown to be capable of killing malignant cells, causing shut down of tumor microvasculature, and induction of host immune response. The therapeutic efficacy of PDT is dependent on ...
R Packages for density based empirical likelihood based hypothesis tests
This thesis presents the functionality of two new R packages for performing goodness-of-fit tests based on density based empirical likelihood methods: dbEmpLikeGOF and dbEmpLikeNorm. The dbEmpLikeGOF function dbEmpLikeGOF ...
Generation of renin BAC transgenic mouse models for the study of regulation, lineage tracing, and tumorigenic potential of the renin-expressing cell
The objective of this work was stratified between three distinct components centralized on renin and the utilization of BAC transgenic models to study in vivo regulation, lineage-tracing as it relates to renal disease and ...
