Invited Review-Neuroimaging Response Assessment Criteria for Brain Tumors in Veterinary Patients
Use of Imaging Biomarkers to Assess Perfusion and Glucose Metabolism in the Skeletal Muscle of Dystrophic Mice
Background Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) is a severe neuromuscular disease that affects 1 in 3500 boys. The disease is characterized by progressive muscle degeneration that results from mutations in or loss of the ...
The effects of dietary protein content and manure handling technique on ammonia emissions during short-term storage of dairy cow manure
(American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers, 2011)
An improved understanding of the potential for dietary protein manipulation to reduce ammonia emissions from dairy farms during various stages of manure handling is needed for both modeling and policy-making efforts. The ...
Gamma Irradiation Influences the Survival and Regrowth of Antibiotic-Resistant Bacteria and Antibiotic-Resistance Genes on Romaine Lettuce
(Frontiers Media, 2019-04)
Contamination of romaine lettuce with human pathogens, antibiotic-resistant bacteria (ARB), and antibiotic resistance genes (ARGs) occurs during production. Post-harvest interventions are emplaced to mitigate pathogens, ...
Temperature-Change-Based Thermal Tomography
Thermal properties of biological tissues play a critical role in the study of tumor angiogenesis and the design and monitoring of thermal therapies. To map thermal parameters noninvasively, we propose temperature-change-based ...
The impact of sphingosine kinase inhibitor-loaded nanoparticles on bioelectrical and biomechanical properties of cancer cells
(The Royal Society of Chemistry, 2015-11-19)
Cancer progression and physiological changes within the cells are accompanied by alterations in the biophysical properties. Therefore, the cell biophysical properties can serve as promising markers for cancer detection and ...
Comparison of Two Alternative Methods for Developing TMDLs to Address Sediment Impairments
While excessive sediment is a leading cause of aquatic life use impairments in free-flowing rivers in Virginia, there is no numeric sediment-water quality criterion. As a result, total maximum daily load (TMDL) sediment ...
Temporal Characterization of Blood–Brain Barrier Disruption with High-Frequency Electroporation
Treatment of intracranial disorders suffers from the inability to accumulate therapeutic drug concentrations due to protection from the blood–brain barrier (BBB). Electroporation-based therapies have demonstrated the ...
Dopamine Stimulates Propagation of Toxoplasma gondii Tachyzoites in Human Fibroblast and Primary Neonatal Rat Astrocyte Cell Cultures
(American Society of Parasitology, 2012-12-01)
Toxoplasma gondii is an obligate intracellular parasite often found in the brain of humans. Research has shown a correlation between prevalence of antibody titers to T. gondii and psychological illness in humans. Recent ...
Identifying protein interaction subnetworks by a bagging Markov random field-based method
(Nucleic Acids Research, 2013)
Identification of differentially expressed subnetworks from protein-protein interaction (PPI) networks has become increasingly important to our global understanding of the molecular mechanisms that drive cancer. Several ...
