A functional genomic screen in vivo identifies CEACAM5 as a clinically relevant driver of breast cancer metastasis

PMCID: 5928229
PMID: 29736411
DOI: 10.1038/s41523-018-0062-x

[…] PDX models were established according to published methods., Briefly, GFP-labeled human stromal fibroblasts were irradiated with 400 Rads and mixed with an equal number of non-irradiated fibroblasts (2.5 × 105 irradiated cells and 2.5 × 105 non-irradiated cells). Fibroblasts were then mixed with 1 × 106 BC3_A2 tumor cells and 1/3 v […]


Filter forensics: microbiota recovery from residential HVAC filters

PMCID: 5791358
PMID: 29382378
DOI: 10.1186/s40168-018-0407-6

[…] hese numbers suggest that in all of these cases, for both bacteria and fungi, community structure is much more repeatable than community membership, which is in part attributable to the long-tail OTU rank-abundance distributions mentioned above. They also suggest that for fungi, all three sampling methodologies were similarly repeatable, while for bacteria, cut samples were less repeatable than sw […]


A novel and fully automated mammographic texture analysis for risk prediction: results from two case control studies

PMCID: 5648465
PMID: 29047382
DOI: 10.1186/s13058-017-0906-6

[…] fe’s parenchymal patterns [] indicate texture characteristics that are not necessarily correlated with PD []. Similarly, the American College of Radiology Breast Imaging Reporting and Data System (BI-RADS) classifies density into categories based on not only the amount of density but on descriptors of the distribution, such as “scattered” and “heterogeneously dense” []. This suggests that the patt […]


Relative abundance of Mycobacterium bovis molecular types in cattle: a simulation study of potential epidemiological drivers

PMCID: 5567634
PMID: 28830547
DOI: 10.1186/s12917-017-1190-5

[…] and is related to the total number of individuals present in the community (J M) and the speciation rate (ν) by θ=JMν1−ν []. When θ is combined with J M, it allows stochastic generation of predicted RADs expected for the community under neutral theory (in the absence of dispersal limitation), using the algorithm specified by Hubbell ([], p289). Predicted RADs are calculated without direct referen […]


Multiparametric Magnetic Resonance Imaging of the Prostate

PMCID: 5544576
PMID: 28463931
DOI: 10.1097/RLI.0000000000000382

[…] A standard, PI-RADS v2 compliant, prostate mpMRI protocol was used in this study. For a given patient, we aimed to maintain similar protocol settings and used the same scanner hardware and software configurations fo […]


An inter laboratory proficiency testing exercise for rabies diagnosis in Latin America and the Caribbean

PLoS Negl Trop Dis
PMCID: 5391118
PMID: 28369139
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pntd.0005427

[…] s indicated by the use of a panel of eight monoclonal antibodies (Mabs) directed to the rabies virus N protein [].All rabies positive brain tissues were inactivated via gamma-irradiation with 5 x 106 rads using a Gamma Cell Irradiator (Gammacell 220 Excel, MDS Nordion, Canada) to exclude any infectious agent in order to facilitate safe importation procedures. To confirm complete inactivation of ra […]
