Fibroblasts stimulate alveolar type II epithelial cell differentiation and proliferation in vitro and during lung development. However, little is known about the effects of adult type II cells on fibroblasts. We investigated the effect of adult rat type II cells on proliferation of adult human lung fibroblasts. Fibroblasts were suspended within rat tail(More)
This paper presents the design, fabrication, control and testing of the third generation prototype of a novel, one degree of freedom (DOF) Variable Resistance Hand Device (VRHD) that was designed for isotonic, isokinetic, and variable resistance grasp and release exercises. Its principle functionality is derived from an electro-rheological fluid based(More)

Cytotoxic chemotherapy is associated with damage to a number of proliferating cell populations, notably the bone marrow, gut epithelium and the gonads. In clinical settings, the recovery time of marrow and gut are dose limiting; however, at the 'tolerable' dose for these acute effects, irreparable damage may be done to testicular and ovarian function. Thus,(More)
