Antemortem identification of Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (CJD) patients is initially based upon clinical presentation of the disease. Symptoms are assessed in combination with results from cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) analysis, electroencephalography (EEG), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and...
Carotid atherosclerosis is responsible for 15-25% of the nearly 8 million first-ever ischemic strokes that occur each year worldwide. This proportion has remained constant over the past three decades, thus suggesting that some patients with carotid atherosclerosis currently receive suboptimal...
Differences in Whole Blood Gene ExpressionAssociated with Infection Time-Course andExtent of Fetal Mortality in a ReproductiveModel of Type 2 Porcine Reproductive andRespiratory Syndrome Virus (PRRSV)InfectionDownload
Porcine Reproductive and Respiratory Syndrome Virus (PRRSV) infection of pregnantfemales causes fetal death and increased piglet mortality, but there is substantial variationin the extent of reproductive pathology between individual dams. This study used RNA-sequencing to characterize the whole...
Evaluating the Role of Bacterial Lipopolysaccharide on Etiology and Pathogenesis of Transmissible Spongiform EncephalopathiesDownload
Transmissible spongiform encephalopathies (TSEs) or otherwise known as prion diseases are a class of fatal neurodegenerative diseases related to irreversible brain damage. Presently, there is no effective treatment or preventive strategy for this disease because the etiology and biological...
Background Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) is a major cause of mortality and morbidity globally. Vertical transmission is the primary mode of HIV acquisition among infants. Although successful interventions have reduced vertical transmission to less than <2.9% in low-to-middle income countries...
Identification of biomarkers associated with the onset and progression of ketosis in transition dairy cowsDownload
Ketosis is a common metabolic disorder of transition dairy cows during the early lactation period. Cows with ketosis have lower milk yield and reproductive performance, greater risk of other periparturient diseases, and higher culling rate. Although ketosis has been extensively studied, not many...
Despite considerable research progress towards characterizing the neurobiology of anxiety, the focus on putative behavioral markers and the absence of a common behavioural/neurobiological signature for the different classes of anxiolytic drugs have potentially slowed research into the neural...
The presence of natural oil seeps, abandoned well sites (generally containing light oil), and high quality source rocks along the coast of western Newfoundland has refocused interest on the region as an area for potential petroleum exploration and development. Most of the oil seeps and old well...
In recent years, rapid advances in genomic and transcriptomic sequencing technologies have enabled the compilation of vast libraries of protein sequences and thus an explosion in bioinformatics-based fields of research. Among these is proteomics – the study of global protein abundance within a...
Apolipoprotein E (APOE) ɛ4 and Clusterin (CLU) C alleles are risk factors for Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and preclinical cognitive and memory decline in older adults. We investigated whether memory resilience to genetic risk (i.e., Apolipoprotein E [APOE] ɛ4, Clusterin [CLU] CC, and a high additive...
