  1. Peress N, Fleit H, Perillo E, Kuljis R, Pezzullo C. Identification of Fc gamma RI, II and III on normal human brain ramified microglia and on microglia in senile plaques in Alzheimer's disease. J Neuroimmunol. 1993;48:71-9 pubmed
    ..These findings suggest that intrinsic Fc gamma R may play an important role in normal and disordered immune-related processes in the brain. They support the idea that microglia are brain macrophages. ..

    ..EMMPRIN overexpression induces an anti-apoptotic and pro-fibrotic phenotype in lung fibroblasts that may contribute to the persistent fibro-proliferative state seen in IPF. ..
  4. Yeh S, Schuster M. Megestrol acetate in cachexia and anorexia. Int J Nanomedicine. 2006;1:411-6 pubmed
    ..A review of general usage and potential side-effects are discussed. A theory that the newly approved nanocrystal formation of MA can better deliver this potent medication for treatment will also be reviewed. ..

    ..These findings establish the importance of oncogenic synergy in cancer initiation and promotion, and establish a molecular link between inflammation and the earliest stages of tumor induction. ..
  9. Arvanian V. Role of neurotrophins in spinal plasticity and locomotion. Curr Pharm Des. 2013;19:4509-16 pubmed
    ..The findings summarized here indicate that neurotrophins have translational research potential for SCI repair, most likely as an essential component of combination therapy. ..
