Natural Eggshell Membrane (NEM(R)) is a new novel dietary supplement that contains naturally occurring glycosaminoglycans and proteins essential for maintaining healthy articular cartilage and the surrounding synovium. The randomized, multicenter, double-blind, placebo-controlled Osteoarthritis Pain Treatment Incorporating NEM(R) clinical study was(More)
BACKGROUND Natural Eggshell Membrane (NEM) is a novel dietary supplement that contains naturally occurring glycosaminoglycans and proteins essential for maintaining healthy joint and connective tissues. Two single center, open-label human clinical studies were conducted to evaluate the efficacy and safety of NEM as a treatment for pain and inflexibility(More)
We have studied the strain-rate dependency of the viscoelastic mechanical properties of human dermis from young (23-year-old) and old (87-year-old) donors using incremental stress–strain measurements. The elastic spring constant for elastic fibers was found to be strain-rate and age dependent, whereas that for collagen was only age dependent. Fibril lengths(More)
Endoscopic techniques are providing a minimally invasive approach to the treatment of vesicoureteral reflux and urinary incontinence. Bovine collagen has been used, but potential degradation over time and sensitivity reactions have limited its usefulness. We evaluate the use of an autologous collagen-based extracellular matrix preparation injected within(More)
A liquid collagen has been developed that fibrilizes upon injection. Rapid polymerizing collagen (RPC) is a type I porcine collagen that undergoes fibrillization upon interaction with ionic solutions, such as physiological solutions. The ability to inject liquid collagen would be beneficial for many soft tissue augmentation applications. In this study, RPC(More)
