Electrically Generated Silver Ions: Quantitative Effects on Bacterial and Mammalian Cells
The inhibitory and bactericidal concentrations of electrically generated silver ions were 10 to 100 times lower than for silver sulfadiazine. Effects on normal mammalian cells were minimal.

Cortical and trabecular bone contribute strength to the osteopenic distal radius
Fractures of the distal radius are common, especially in postmenopausal women, and their prevalence increases with age. Knowledge of the factors that increase the risk of fracture in this metaphysealExpand

Antibacterial Effects of Silver Electrodes with Weak Direct Current
Silver, platinum, gold, stainless-steel, and copper electrodes were used with low currents (0.02 to 20 μA/mm2) to explore their electrochemical effects on the growth of four bacterial species. In theExpand

Amifostine before fractionated irradiation protects bone growth in rats better than fractionation alone.
The aim of this study was to determine the independent and combined effects of 100 mg/kg and 200 mg/kg doses of the radioprotectant amifostine and radiotherapy dose fractionation in preserving theExpand
