The presence of mixed disaccharides (maltose and isomaltose) in plasma from uremic patients has been previously investigated using gel-permeation chromatography. However, this method is unable to separate maltose (linked alpha-1-4) from isomaltose (linked alpha-1-6). We describe an alternative method using

Gene therapy, 22(11), 883-892 (2015-07-01)
Successful application of gene therapy strategies may require stringently regulated transgene expression. Along this line, we describe a doxycycline (Dox)-inducible 'all-in-one' lentiviral vector design using the pTET-T11 (TII) minimal-promoter and a reverse transactivator protein (rtTA2S-M2) driven by the phosphoglycerate kinase

Abatement of fracture-related pain is important in patient welfare. However, the frequently used non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs are considered to impair fracture healing through blockade of cyclooxygenase-2. An alternative for fracture-related pain treatment may be blockade of nerve growth factor (NGF)/neurotrophic

Rhadinoviruses establish chronic infections of clinical and economic importance. Several show respiratory transmission and cause lung pathologies. We used Murid Herpesvirus-4 (MuHV-4) to understand how rhadinovirus lung infection might work. A primary epithelial or B cell infection often is assumed.
