Effects of deep brain stimulation of the subthalamic nucleus on activities of daily living skills in people with Parkinson's disease
This study objectively examined the effects of subthalamic nucleus deep brain stimulation on performance of activities of daily living (ADLs) in people with Parkinson's disease using the Functional Independence Measure ...
Effect of fat on inflammation and insulin resistance in human mononuclear cells and myeloid cell insulin receptor knockout mice
Obesity and diabetes are major risk factors for cardiovascular disease. Both have been shown to be associated with oxidative stress and inflammation. These processes are also involved in the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis. ...
The 5-HT(1A) receptor and hallucinogens
Use of hallucinogens, such as lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD), continues to be a societal problem and accordingly is a major interest of the National Institute on Drug Abuse. Hallucinogens are worthy of study not only ...
Heritability of occlusal traits in primary dentitions of Brazilian twins
The purpose of this study is to determine the heritability of occlusal traits in primary dentitions of Brazilian Twins using a twin study design. 16 pairs of monozygotic (MZ) identical twins casts and 19 pairs of dizygotic ...
A constrained object approach to systems biology
Research has shown that all the information needed to build a detailed model of a cell, including the properties of all constituent components and their interconnectivity, is still not available. However, cells are subject ...
Molecular mechanism of inhibitor of kappa B kinase (IKK) complex activation by inducible phosphorylation and ubiquitination upon T cell receptor (TCR) stimulation
IκB kinase (IKK) complex serves as the master regulator for the activation of NF-κB by various stimuli. It contains two catalytic subunits, IKKα and IKKβ, and a regulatory subunit, IKKγ/NEMO. The activation of IKK complex ...
Impact of aging on type I collagen and transforming growth factor-beta1 (TGF-beta1) mRNA expression during muscle degeneration
We tested the hypothesis that type I collagen mRNA expression would be lower in injured skeletal muscle from senescent rats compared with young and middle-aged rats, and that this decrease would be associated with a decreased ...
Effects of TNF-alpha on type I collagen and TGF-beta1 mRNA expression in muscle cells
The purpose of this study was to determine whether treatment of cultured C 2 C 12 myoblasts and mytotubes with TNF-α over time (24, 48 and 72hrs) would stimulate collagen metabolism either directly or indirectly through a ...
Development and evaluation of a new high-sensitivity, region-of-interest, x-ray imaging system for neuro-interventional applications
Neurovascular image-guided interventional (IGI) procedures require very high resolution (3 to 10 lp/mm), large dynamic range, and real-time imaging capability for visualization and navigation of endovascular devices during ...
