Low Dose Infliximab for Prevention of Postoperative Recurrence of Crohn's Disease: Long Term Follow-Up and Impact of Infliximab Trough Levels and Antibodies to Infliximab
Objective In patients with postoperative recurrence of Crohn’s disease endoscopic and clinical remission can be maintained for up to 1 year with low infliximab doses (3 mg/Kg). However, in theory low-dose infliximab ...
Utility of Real-Time PCR for Detection of Exserohilum rostratum in Body and Tissue Fluids during the Multistate Outbreak of Fungal Meningitis and Other Infections
(American Society for Microbiology, 2015)
Exserohilum rostratum was the major cause of the multistate outbreak of fungal meningitis linked to contaminated injections of methylprednisolone acetate produced by the New England Compounding Center. Previously, we ...
Neural mechanisms of negative reinforcement in children and adolescents with autism spectrum disorders
(Springer New York, 2015-03-25)
Background; Previous research has found accumulating evidence for atypical reward processing in autism spectrum disorders (ASD), particularly in the context of social rewards. Yet, this line of research has focused largely ...
Single Center Retrospective Analysis of Conventional and Radial TIG Catheters for Transradial Diagnostic Coronary Angiography
Current guidelines favor the radial approach for coronary angiography. Therefore, specialty radial diagnostic catheters were designed to engage both coronary arteries with a single device. However, it is unclear if single ...

Sodium channels in the Cx43 gap junction perinexus may constitute a cardiac ephapse: an experimental and modeling study
It has long been held that electrical excitation spreads from cell-to-cell in the heart via low resistance gap junctions (GJ). However, it has also been proposed that myocytes could interact by non-GJ-mediated “ephaptic” ...
The effect of a connexin43-based Peptide on the healing of chronic venous leg ulcers: a multicenter, randomized trial.
The gap junction protein, connexin43 (Cx43), has critical roles in the inflammatory, edematous, and fibrotic processes following dermal injury and during wound healing, and is abnormally upregulated at the epidermal wound ...
Connexin 43 expression is associated with increased malignancy in prostate cancer cell lines and functions to promote migration.
Impaired expression of connexins, the gap junction subunits that facilitate direct cell-cell communication, have been implicated in prostate cancer growth. To elucidate the crucial role of connexins in prostate cancer ...
Is sham cTBS real cTBS? The effect on EEG dynamics
(Frontiers Media S.A., 2015-01-08)
Increasing sensitivity of modern evaluation tools allows for the study of weaker electric stimulation effects on neural populations. In the current study we examined the effects of sham continuous theta burst (cTBS) ...
