National Native American Heritage Month - November 2018

NIH Tribal Health Research Office Dr. Joseph Gone is a clinical-community psychologist and Professor of Anthropology and of Global Health and Social Medicine at Harvard University.  In his interdisciplinary scholarship, Gone examines cultural influences on mental health status, as well as the intersection of evidence-based practice and cultural competence in mental health services. A citizen of the Gros Ventre tribal nation of Montana, he has investigated these issues through collaborative research partnerships in both reservation and urban American Indian communities. As this celebration ’ s special guest, Dr. Gone will share his thoughts and discuss American Indian therapeutic traditions and modern health treatments.   Dr. Gone is the recipient of several fellowships and career awards, he completed a residency at the Center for Advanced Study in the Behavioral Sciences at Stanford University in 2011. In 2014, he was named a Fellow of the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation, and he is currently a Fellow in the Interdisciplinary Research Leaders Program of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.Air date: 11/19/2018 10:30:00 AM

In this study, we found that TLR1/TLR2 expression predicted favorable prognosis of lung cancer patients. In the related mice tumor model, TLR1/TLR2 activation by synthetic bacterial lipoprotein (BLP), a TLR1/2 agonist, greatly inhibited tumor growth and selectively decreased monocytic MDSCs (M-MDSCs). Furthermore, BLP treatment redirected M-MDSC differentiation towards M1 macrophage through JNK pathway, and thus blocked the suppressive activity of M-MDSCs in a TLR2-dependent manner. Therefore, our data demonstrated that TLR2 could be a promising biomarker and a potential immunotherapeutic target for lung cancer.

Kristen Demoruelle, Kevin D. Deane, Nirmal K. Banda, V. Michael HolersAbstractRheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a complex autoimmune disease with an etiology that is not yet well understood, disproportionally affects women and also varies in incidence and prevalence by population. The presence of anti-citrullinated protein antibodies (ACPA) is a highly specific biomarker for the diagnosis of clinically apparent RA. ACPA are also present in the ...

Publication date: Available online 14 June 2019Source: Analytic Methods in Accident ResearchAuthor(s): Lai Zheng, Tarek Sayed, Mohamed EssaAbstractA Bayesian hierarchical modeling (BHM) approach is used to model non-stationary traffic conflict extremes of different sites together for crash estimation. The hierarchical structure has three layers, a data layer that is modeled with a generalized extreme value (GEV) distribution, a latent Gaussian process layer that relates parameters of GEV to covariates and the unobserved heterogeneity, and a prior layer with prior distributions to characterize the latent process. The propos...

We have generated an induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) line, IGIBi001-A from an Indian sickle cell patient with a homozygous HBB gene mutation using Sendai virus reprogramming system. Characterization of IGIBi001-A showed that these iPSCs are transgene-free and expressed pluripotent stem cell markers. They had a...

Pluripotency of the iPSC line was verified by immunofluorescence staining of ...

CONCLUSIONS: These data provide the current PCI practice pattern with the use of FFR and IVUS in intermediate lesion. More common use of FFR for intermediate lesion should be encouraged. PMID: 31190480 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

CONCLUSIONS: Separate examination of control rates demonstrated different sex- and age-differential trends, which would have been overlooked in combined control rates. PMID: 31190479 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
