3. Influence of fiber detargeting on adenovirus-mediated innate and adaptive immune activation.
Match Strength: 6.727
The major adenovirus (Ad) capsid proteins hexon, penton, and fiber influence the efficiency and tropism of gene transduction by Ad vectors. Fiber is the high-affinity receptor binding protein that serves to mediate cell attachment in vitro when using coxsackie-adenovirus receptor (CAR)-containing cell lines. This contrasts with transduction efficiency in macrophages or dendritic cells that lack high concentrations of CAR. To determine how fiber influences gene transduction and immune activation in a murine model, we have characterized Ad type 5 (Ad5) vectors with two classes of chimeric fiber, ... Read More »

4. Investigating treatment dose error due to beam attenuation by a carbon fiber tabletop.
Match Strength: 6.426
Carbon fiber is commonly used in radiation therapy for treatment tabletops and various immobilization and support devices, partially because it is generally perceived to be almost radiotransparent to high-energy photons. To avoid exposure to normal tissue during modern radiation therapy, one must deliver the radiation from all gantry angles; hence, beams often transit the couch proximal to the patient. The effects of the beam attenuation by the support structure of the couch are often neglected in the planning process. In this study, we investigate the attenuation of 6-MV and 18-MV photon ...

19. Diet-dependent shifts in ruminal butyrate-producing bacteria.
Match Strength: 4.944
The influence of a host's diet on Butyrivibrio and Pseudobutyrivibrio populations was investigateded by competitive PCR. Specific primers were designed and competitive PCRs developed for both groups. Results (from 4 cows with different diets) suggested that high-fiber intake essentially increases the Butyrivibrio amounts in the rumen, whereas high-energy food additives lead to its suppression. The Pseudobutyrivibrio concetration also changed during the experiment but without any significant relation to the host's diet. Publication Types: Research Support, Non-U.S. Gov ... Read More »

20. Relationship between effect of polymyxin B-immobilized fiber and high-mobility group box-1 protein in septic shock patients.
Match Strength: 4.943
Direct hemoperfusion (DHP) using a polymyxin B (PMX)-immobilized fiber column has been used for treatment of endotoxemia-induced septic shock in Japan since 1994 and is now an accepted therapy for reducing serum endotoxin levels. Although a reduction in inflammatory cytokines has been reported, the detailed mechanism of DHP-PMX is not known. We investigated the high-mobility group box-1 (HMGB-1) level in septic shock patients treated with DHP-PMX. Subjects (n = 20) were separated into two group: those whose systolic blood pressure increased to more than 30 mm Hg immediately after DHP-PMX ... Read More »
