1. The technique of intracortical microstimulation (ICMS), supplemented by single-neuron recording, was used to carry out an extensive mapping of the face primary motor cortex. The ICMS study involved a total of 969 microelectrode penetrations carried out in 10 unanesthetized monkeys (Macaca fascicularis). 2. Monitoring of ICMS-evoked movements and(More)
1. Somatosensory afferent input and its relationship with efferent output were examined in the primary face motor cortex (MI) and adjacent cerebral cortical areas. Excitatory afferent inputs were tested in a total of 1,654 single neurons recorded in awake or anesthetized monkeys (Macaca fascicularis), and output was characterized in these same monkeys by(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the distribution patterns of primary and permanent teeth in the cleft area and the numerical variation in teeth in unilateral complete cleft lip and palate (UCLP) patients. DESIGN A survey of the dentition in UCLP patients. SETTING Craniofacial Center, Chang Gung Memorial Hospital, Taipei, Taiwan. PATIENTS 137 UCLP patients(More)
1. The lateral part of the pericentral cortex of both hemispheres in three awake monkeys was explored with intracortical microstimulation (ICMS) using short trains (T/S; 200-microseconds pulses at 333 Hz for 35 ms, less than or equal to microA) and long trains (C/S; 200-microseconds pulses at 50 Hz for 3 s, less than or equal to 60 microA). In both(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the toxicity, immunogenicity, and pharmacokinetics of a human-mouse chimeric monoclonal antibody (mAb) ch 14.18 directed against disialoganglioside (GD2) and to obtain preliminary information on its clinical efficacy, we conducted a phase I trial in 10 patients with refractory neuroblastoma and one patient with osteosarcoma.

PURPOSE Clinically, we have observed the phenomenon of postoperatively accelerated orthodontic tooth movement in patients who had orthognathic surgery. This phenomenon lasts for a period of 3 to 4 months. However, the underlying mechanisms of this phenomenon have not been well studied yet. The purpose of this prospective clinical pilot study was to study(More)
PURPOSE This study compares 1) progressive dental and skeletal changes, 2) postsurgical stability, and 3) treatment efficacy of patients with skeletal Class III correction with and without presurgical orthodontic treatment. PATIENTS AND METHODS The study includes 53 patients who underwent orthognathic surgery (OGS) to correct skeletal Class III(More)
The surgery-first approach indicates that the orthognathic surgery precedes the orthodontic treatment, whereas the orthodontics-first approach indicates that the orthodontic treatment precedes the orthognathic surgery. The conventional approach is an orthodontics-first approach. The purposes of this article are to introduce the concept of the surgery-first(More)
PURPOSE This study was conducted to identify the characteristics of facial asymmetry before surgery and to evaluate the facial skeletal changes and stability after 2-jaw orthognathic surgery. The ideal "double-cross grid" as fitting the key landmarks to the reference planes on posteroanterior cephalograms was set as the treatment goal. PATIENTS AND(More)
PURPOSE The objectives of the study were to identify the parameters related to skeletal stability after orthognathic surgery in skeletal Class III malocclusion using a surgery-first approach and to analyze the factors correlated with surgical relapse. MATERIALS AND METHODS Forty-five consecutive patients were included. Serial cephalometric radiographs(More)
