SUMMARY Visual defects, called mura in the field, sometimes occur during the manufacturing of the flat panel liquid crystal displays. In this paper we propose an automatic inspection method that reliably detects and quantifies TFT-LCD region-mura defects. The method consists of two phases. In the first phase we segment candidate region-muras from TFT-LCD(More)
The aim of this study was to determine the effects of mouse granulocyte-macrophage colony-stimulating factor (mGM-CSF) on development of porcine parthenotes and nuclear transferred embryos, and on their expression of implantation-related genes. In the presence of bovine serum albumin, mGM-CSF did not increase the percentage of oocytes that developed to the(More)
BACKGROUND The purpose of this investigation was to evaluate the regenerative response to deproteinized porous bovine bone mineral (BM) when used alone or in combination with a bioresorbable porcine-derived bilayer collagen membrane (CM) for alveolar ridge augmentation in dogs. MATERIALS AND METHODS The mandibular premolars were extracted unilaterally and(More)
The aim of this study was to assess the inhibitory effect of whole bee venom (BV) on adjuvant-induced arthritis in the rat. Rats were divided into pre-apitherapy, post-apitherapy and control experimental groups. The pre-apitherapy group was subcutaneously stung with a honeybee (Apis mellifera L.) and the control group was subcutaneously injected with 0.1 ml(More)
Despite many attempts to improve the in vitro maturation (IVM) of canine oocytes using various culture conditions, the efficiency of canine IVM remains very low compared with that of other domestic animals. In the present study we examined the effect of ovarian estrus stage on oocyte quality, and the effect of epidermal growth factor (EGF) in the presence(More)
This study was performed to assess the efficacy of alpha-viniferin (Carex humilis Leyss) on adjuvant-induced arthritis in rats. Adjuvant arthritis was induced by a single subcutaneous injection of 0.1 ml complete Freund's adjuvant (CFA) containing 7.5 mg Mycobacterium butyricum suspended in 1 ml sterile paraffin oil into the right hind paw. Forty female(More)
This study aims to help business community understand other cultures by utilizing the database. Particularly, the comprehensive information on the member states of ASEAN, which should be perceive as Blue Oceans, will be used for the companies to survive the global competition. In the midst of the global business arena, cultural literacy plays a very(More)
This study was designed to evaluate the effect of 99mTechnetium-dicarboxypropane diphosphonate (99mTc-DPD) and 99mTechnetium-methylene diphosphonate (99mTc-MDP) on bone scan image quality and time in dogs with osteoarthritis. The left cranial cruciate ligament (CrCL) in ten healthy adult Beagle dogs was transected under general anesthesia. The dogs were(More)
The objective of this study was to evaluate the bone uptake of the bone-seeking radionuclide (99m)technetium-methylene diphosphonate ((99m)Tc-MDP) in order to examine and compare the clinical efficacies of tibial plateau leveling osteotomy (TPLO) and cranial tibial wedge osteotomy (CTWO) for the correction of experimentally induced cranial cruciate ligament(More)
