A computational approach is presented for modeling and quantifying the structure and dynamics of the nematode C. elegans observed by time-lapse microscopy. Worm shape and conformations are expressed in a decoupled manner. Complex worm movements are expressed in terms of three primitive patterns--peristaltic progression, deformation, and translation. The(More)
INTRODUCTION Suboptimal wound healing represents a major threat to public health and an enormous financial burden to the healthcare system 1. Tens of millions of patients worldwide present every year with difficult-to-heal wounds. The major causes of these chronic skin ulcers are pressure (decubitus ulcers), venous stasis disease, and diabetes mellitus. It(More)
BACKGROUND Activated autologous platelet-rich plasma (PRP) used in therapeutic wound healing applications is poorly characterized and standardized. Using pulsed electric fields (PEF) to activate platelets may reduce variability and eliminate complications associated with the use of bovine thrombin. We previously reported that exposing PRP to sub-microsecond(More)
