In vitro and in vivo neuroprotective effects of cJun N-terminal kinase inhibitors on retinal ganglion cells
(BioMed Central Ltd., 2016-04-21)
BACKGROUND: The c-Jun N-terminal kinase (JNK) signaling pathway plays an important role in neuronal pathophysiology. Using JNK inhibitors, we examined involvement of the JNK pathway in cultured rat retinal ganglion cell ...
Roles of disease severity and post-discharge outpatient visits as predictors of hospital readmissions
(BioMed Central Ltd., 2016-10-10)
BACKGROUND: Risks prediction models of 30-day all-cause hospital readmissions are multi-factorial. Severity of illness (SOI) and risk of mortality (ROM) categorized by All Patient Refined Diagnosis Related Groups (APR-DRG) ...
C1q propagates microglial activation and neurodegeneration in the visual axis following retinal ischemia/reperfusion injury
(BioMed Central Ltd., 2016-03-24)
BACKGROUND: C1q represents the initiating protein of the classical complement cascade, however recent findings indicate pathway independent roles such as developmental pruning of retinal ganglion cell (RGC) axons. Furthermore, ...
Common Lung Microbiome Identified among Mechanically Ventilated Surgical Patients
The examination of the pulmonary microbiome in patients with non-chronic disease states has not been extensively examined. Traditional culture based screening methods are often unable to identify bacteria from bronchoalveolar ...
