Kimberly M Ken, Mariah M Johnson, Justin J Leitenberger, Donald E Neal, Jeremy R Etzkorn, Panayiota Govas, Bryan T Carroll, Ahmed H Badawi, Tejaswi Mudigonda, M Laurin Council, Christina Avila, David R Carr, Jodie Sasaki, Travis W Blalock, Nicholas J Golda,

<h4>Background</h4>Dermatologic surgery is associated with low postoperative infection rates, averaging from approximately 1% to 4.25%. Often, postoperative infections are treated empirically based on clinical diagnosis of infection, given it can take 48 to 72 hours for a wound culture to identify a pathogen.<h4>Objective</h4>We aimed to evaluate the efficacy of empiric ...

Economic Costs Avoided by Diagnosing Melanoma Six Months Earlier Justify >100 Benign Biopsies.

Daniel J Aires, Jo Wick, Tarek S Shaath, Anand N Rajpara, Vikas Patel, Ahmed H Badawi, Cicy Li, Garth R Fraga, Gary Doolittle, Deede Y Liu,

New melanoma drugs bring enormous benefits but do so at significant costs. Because melanoma grows deeper and deadlier over time, deeper lesions are costlier due to increased sentinel lymph node biopsy, chemotherapy, and disease-associated income loss. Prior studies have justified pigmented lesion biopsies on a "value per life" basis; by ... Read more >>

Immune Tolerance Induction against Experimental Autoimmune Encephalomyelitis (EAE) Using A New PLP-B7AP Conjugate that Simultaneously Targets B7/CD28 Costimulatory Signal and TCR/MHC-II Signal.

Ahmed H Badawi, Paul Kiptoo, Teruna J Siahaan,

Most of the current therapies used in the treatment of multiple sclerosis (MS) are either ineffective or have adverse side effects. As such, there is a need to develop better therapies that specifically target myelin-specific aberrant immune cells involved in CNS inflammation without compromising the general immune system. In the ... Read more >>

Cetirizine-induced acute generalized exanthematous pustulosis: a serious reaction to a commonly used drug.

Ahmed H Badawi, Kimberly Tefft, Garth R Fraga, Deede Y Liu,

Acute generalized exanthematous pustulosis (AGEP) is an abrupt cutaneous adverse reaction usually in response to medications. It is generally a self-limiting disease if diagnosed promptly and the offending agent discontinued. Cetirizine, a commonly used anti-histamine medication for the treatment of allergic diseases has few reported side effects and is normally ... Read more >>

Schnitzler Syndrome.

Ahmed H Badawi, Selina Gierer, Garth R Fraga,

A 48-year-old man with typical features of Schnitzler Syndrome is presented, followed by a discussion of the pathogenesis and clinical aspects of this rare disease. Some of the challenges we and others have faced in diagnosing and treating this disease are also discussed. Clinical pearls and pitfalls are emphasized to ... Read more >>

Suppression of MOG- and PLP-induced experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis using a novel multivalent bifunctional peptide inhibitor.

Ahmed H Badawi, Teruna J Siahaan,

Previously, bifunctional peptide inhibitors (BPI) with a single antigenic peptide have been shown to suppress experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis (EAE) in an antigen-specific manner. In this study, a multivalent BPI (MVBMOG/PLP) with two antigenic peptides derived from myelin oligodendrocyte glycoprotein (MOG38-50) and myelin proteolipid protein (PLP139-151) was evaluated in suppressing MOG38-50- ...

Suppression of EAE and prevention of blood-brain barrier breakdown after vaccination with novel bifunctional peptide inhibitor.

Ahmed H Badawi, Paul Kiptoo, Wen-Tung Wang, In-Young Choi, Phil Lee, Charlotte M Vines, Teruna J Siahaan,

The efficacy of bifunctional peptide inhibitor (BPI) in preventing blood-brain barrier (BBB) breakdown during onset of experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis (EAE) and suppression of the disease was evaluated in mice. The mechanism that defines how BPI prevents the disease was investigated by measuring the in vitro cytokine production of splenocytes. Peptides were ... Read more >>

Vaccinelike and prophylactic treatments of EAE with novel I-domain antigen conjugates (IDAC): targeting multiple antigenic peptides to APC.

Barlas Büyüktimkin, Prakash Manikwar, Paul K Kiptoo, Ahmed H Badawi, John M Stewart, Teruna J Siahaan,

The objective of this work is to utilize novel I-domain antigenic-peptide conjugates (IDAC) for targeting antigenic peptides to antigen-presenting cells (APC) to simulate tolerance in experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis (EAE). IDAC-1 and IDAC-3 molecules are conjugates between the I-domain protein and PLP-Cys and Ac-PLP-Cys-NH(2) peptides, respectively, tethered to N-terminus and Lys ... Read more >>

Immune modulating peptides for the treatment and suppression of multiple sclerosis.

Ahmed H Badawi, Teruna J Siahaan,

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a neurodegenerative disease in which the immune system recognizes proteins of the myelin sheath as antigenic, thus initiating an inflammatory reaction in the central nervous system. This leads to demyelination of the axons, breakdown of the blood-brain barrier, and lesion formation. Current therapies for the treatment ... Read more >>

Effect of modification of the physicochemical properties of ICAM-1-derived peptides on internalization and intracellular distribution in the human leukemic cell line HL-60.

Sumit Majumdar, Bimo A Tejo, Ahmed H Badawi, David Moore, Jeffrey P Krise, Teruna J Siahaan,

The objective of this work is to test the hypothesis that increasing the hydrophilicity of DOX-peptide conjugates may modify their entry mechanisms into HL-60 cells from passive diffusion to receptor-mediated uptake. To test this hypothesis, the entry mechanisms and the intracellular disposition of DOX-cIBR7, DOX-PEGcIBR7, FITC-cIBR, and FITC-cIBR7 were evaluated ... Read more >>
