OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to assess the effects of hyperbaric oxygen (HBO) and near-infrared light therapy on wound healing. BACKGROUND DATA Light-emitting diodes (LED), originally developed for NASA plant growth experiments in space show promise for delivering light deep into tissues of the body to promote wound healing and human tissue(More)
BACKGROUND Vitrification is assumed to be a promising method to cryopreserve human oocytes but still needs optimization. In this study, rabbit oocytes (fertilized by ICSI) were vitrified with cryoloops, and the effect of three different cryopreservation protocols on spindle configuration and embryo quality was assessed. METHODS Metaphase II rabbit oocytes(More)
Flexible electronics is an emerging and promising technology for next generation of optoelectronic devices. Herein, hierarchical three-dimensional ZnCo(2)O(4) nanowire arrays/carbon cloth composites were synthesized as high performance binder-free anodes for Li-ion battery with the features of high reversible capacity of 1300-1400 mAh g(-1) and excellent(More)
Islet-like cells derived from embryonic stem (ES) cells may be a promising therapeutic option for future diabetes treatment. Here, we demonstrated a five-stage protocol with adding exendin-4 instead of nicotinamide finally could generate islet-like cells from human embryonic stem (ES) cells. Immunofluorescence analysis revealed a high percentage of(More)
OBJECTIVE To study expression of cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) in human endometrium. METHODS The expression of CFTR mRNA and protein from 50 samples of normal cyclic human endometrium was examined by in situ hybridization, immunohistochemistry and Western blotting respectively. RESULTS CFTR mRNA and protein expressions were(More)
The effects of relaxin (RLX), forskolin (Fk), and 4-(3-butoxy-4-methoxybenzyl)-2-imidazolidinone (Ro, a phophodeisterase inhibitor) on the accumulation of cyclic adenosine 3',5'-monophosphate (cAMP) in human endometrial glandular epithelial cells were studied. Epithelial glands were isolated from the endometrium by digesting the viable tissue fragments with(More)
AIM Ghrelin is involved in regulating the differentiation of mesoderm-derived precursor cells. The aim of this study was to investigate whether ghrelin modulated the differentiation of human embryonic stem (hES) cells into cardiomyocytes and, if so, whether the effect was mediated by growth hormone secretagogue receptor 1α (GHS-R1α). METHODS Cardiomyocyte(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare the clinical outcomes of gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) antagonist (GnRH-ant) fixed protocol with GnRH agonist (GnRH-a) long protocol in infertile patients with normal ovarian reserve function in their first in vitro fertilization-embryo transfer (IVF-ET) cycle, and to explore the feasibility and advantage of GnRH antagonist(More)
A high-efficiency fiber laser at 1018 nm using homemade Yb-doped phosphosilicate fiber is demonstrated. The fiber shows blueshifted emission spectrum compared to Yb-doped aluminosilicate fiber, and is considered favorable for the short wavelength Yb-doped fiber laser. With a 7 m gain fiber, up to 22.8 W output at 1018 nm is achieved with an optical(More)
For the difficult of temperature controlling and coordination in the drying ovens for Automobile Body costing line system, a model of this system was set up based on the technology of multi-agent. According to this model, a negotiation based on argumentation was used to solve the contradiction in this Multi-agent system. Further more, a research about(More)
