Noninvasive histologic grading of solid astrocytomas using proton magnetic resonance spectroscopy
Background: Proton magnetic resonance spectroscopy (1H MRS) constitutes a promising modality to assess intracranial pathology. We present our experience using this method in grading solid brain astrocytomas. Material and ...
Multiple viral/self immunological cross-reactivity in liver kidney microsomal antibody positive hepatitis C virus-infected patients is associated with the possession of HLA B51
Liver Kidney Microsomal autoantibody type 1(LKM1) directed to cytochrome P4502D6 (CYP2D6) characterises autoimmune hepatitis type-2 (AIH-2), but is also found in a proportion of chronic hepatitis C virus (HCV) infected ...

In order to test the serum levels of ICAM-1, ICAM-2 and ICAM-3 in patients with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF), twenty patients with IPF and eleven with secondary interstitial fibrosis (SIF), as well as forty healthy ...
Decreased Expression of the CD3ζ Chain in T Cells Infiltrating the Synovial Membrane of Patients with Osteoarthritis
Osteoarthritis (OA) is a heterogeneous disease which rheumatologists consider to be noninflammatory. However, recent studies suggest that, at least in certain patients, OA is an inflammatory disease and that patients often ...
