The effects of ketorolac on bone repair were studied radiographically. The effects of methylprednisolone were also compared. Demineralized bone matrix was grafted into the fractured gap of rabbit's ulna as an experimental bone repair model. The rabbits received ketorolac 2 or 4 mg/kg body weight daily for 6 weeks after transplantation. Serial radiographic(More)
It has been reported that nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) suppress bone repair and bone remodeling but only mildly inhibit bone mineralization at the earlier stage of the repair process. We proposed that the proliferation and/or the earlier stage of differentiation of osteoblasts may be affected by NSAIDs. This study was designed to(More)
Epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) had been reported as one of the major responsible genes for malignant progression and phenotype reversion of gliomas, and has been used as one of the most important therapeutic targets. In the present study, small interference RNA (siRNA) and antisense EGFR expression constructs, which target sequences of human EGFR(More)
With the advent of percutaneously placed lag screws for fixation of acetabular fractures, this study evaluated the strength of lag screw fixation compared with traditional fixation techniques of transverse acetabular fractures. Ten formalin-treated human, cadaveric pelvic specimens with bilateral, transtectal transverse acetabular fractures were used for(More)
Ketorolac and methylprednisolone effects on bone repair were studied. Demineralized bone matrix was used to graft the defects of rabbits' ulnae. Twenty-seven rabbits were divided into 4 groups: Group A (control group; no drug treatment), Group B (treated with ketorolac 2 mg/kg body weight daily), Group C (treated with ketorolac 4 mg/kg body weight daily),(More)
The disseminated neoplastic foci of malignant gliomas are essentially responsible for the limited efficacy of current available therapeutic modalities. Bone marrow-derived stem cells (BMSCs) have the ability to migrate into these tumors and even track infiltrating tumor cells, making them to be promising cellular vehicles for delivering therapeutic agents(More)
Primary osteoblast cultures, which reflect more phenotypic properties of normal osteoblasts than osteoblastic cell lines, can be used as an experimental tool for investigating the osteoblastic functions in vitro. Primary osteoblast cultures were obtained from the parietal bones of calvaria of fetal rats in this study. Differential characteristics of(More)

The mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) content of the mature eggs and embryos of loach and goldfish at early developmental stages were detected by means of dot hybridization. The transcription of mitochondrial cytochrome oxidase subunit I and II (COI and COII) genes during their early development was also detected by Northern hybridization. The experimental results(More)
Typha angustata Bony et Chaub. is a traditional Chinese medicine, commonly used in China for a variety of clinical disorders, including atherosclerosis, cardiovascular diseases, uterus contraction, and wound healing. The effect of the pollen of Typha angustata on the bone inductive capacity of demineralized bone matrix is studied here. Demineralized bone(More)
