Recent studies have suggested that green tea polyphenols (GTP) are promising agents for preventing bone loss in women. Findings that GTP supplementation resulted in increased urinary GTP concentrations and bone mass via an increase of antioxidant capacity and/or a decrease of oxidative stress damage suggest a significant role of GTP in bone health of women.(More)
The effect of long-chain n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acid (PUFA) on bone measurements was evaluated in gonad-intact middle-aged male rats. Seven rats were killed on day 0 of dietary intervention to determine bone parameters at baseline. Experimental rats (7/group) were fed one of the following lipid treatments (g/kg diet): 167 g safflower oil + 33 g menhaden(More)
Postmenopausal women with osteopenia received green tea polyphenols (GTP) supplement and/or Tai Chi exercise for 6 months. Bone turnover biomarkers, calcium metabolism, and muscle strength were measured. This study showed that GTP supplementation and Tai Chi exercise increased bone formation biomarkers and improved bone turnover rate. Tai Chi exercise(More)
Green tea polyphenols (GTP) are promising agents for preventing bone loss. GTP supplementation sustained microarchitecture and improved bone quality via a decrease in inflammation. Findings suggest a significant role for GTP in skeletal health of patients with chronic inflammation. This study evaluated whether GTP can restore bone microstructure along with(More)
Both spinal cord injury and ovariectomy can result in ostepenia in rats. SCI induces more deterioration of cortical geometric structure and trabecular microstructure in the proximal tibial metaphysis than OVX. The proximal tibial metaphysis microstructure significantly correlates with its biomechanical properties. The purpose of the present study was to(More)
Studies suggest that green tea polyphenols (GTP) or alphacalcidol is promising agent for preventing bone loss. Findings that GTP supplementation plus alphacalcidol administration increased bone mass via a decrease of oxidative stress and inflammation suggest a significant role of GTP plus alphacalcidol in bone health of patients with chronic inflammation.(More)
We study the Lanczos type methods for continuation problems. First we indicate how the symmetric Lanczos method may be used to solve both positive definite and indefinite linear systems. Furthermore, it can be used to monitor the simple bifurcation points on the solution curve of the eigenvalue problems. This includes computing the minimum eigenvalue, the(More)
This paper presents a digital control multi-lamp back-light module for TFT-LCD TV. The driving system consists of three modules and each module adopts three-phase inverters operated with interleaving fashion to drive cold cathode fluorescent lamps (CCFL), which can reduce input current ripple. A three-phase transformer is introduced to prevent current(More)
