Innate and adaptive mucosal immunity in protection against HIV infection.
The appalling toll on the populations of developing countries as a result of the HIV epidemic shows no signs of abatement. While costly drug therapies are effective in developed nations, the sheer scale of the epidemic ...
A double-blind, crossover study of Biotène Oralbalance and BioXtra systems as salivary substitutes in patients with post-radiotherapy xerostomia.
This study assessed the efficacy of the Bioxtra (BX) and Biotène Oralbalance (OB) systems in the treatment of post-radiotherapy xerostomia. In a double-blind, crossover study, 20 patients with post-radiotherapy xerostomia ...
Linkage analysis of cross-sectional and longitudinally derived phenotypic measures to identify loci influencing blood pressure.
BACKGROUND: The design of appropriate strategies to analyze and interpret linkage results for complex human diseases constitutes a challenge. Parameters such as power, definition of phenotype, and replicability have to be ...
Genetic and phenotypic effects of phonological short-term memory and grammatical morphology in specific language impairment.
Deficits in phonological short-term memory and aspects of verb grammar morphology have been proposed as phenotypic markers of specific language impairment (SLI) with the suggestion that these traits are likely to be under ...
Familial loading in specific language impairment: patterns of differences across proband characteristics, gender and relative type.
There is now little doubt that both environmental factors and genes are likely to make important contributions to the aetiology of specific language impairment (SLI). The most commonly proposed model for understanding these ...
A flexible model for multivariate interval-censored survival times with complex correlation structure.
We focus on the analysis of multivariate survival times with highly structured interdependency and subject to interval censoring. Such data are common in developmental genetics and genetic epidemiology. We propose a flexible ...
