PDLSC-mediated periodontal tissue regeneration is considered a promising method for periodontitis treatment, but the supply of PDLSCs is limited. As a potential alternative, WJCMSCs are readily available; however, there is a lack of evidence proving that WJCMSCs are suitable for periodontal tissue regeneration. In this study, we investigated the(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Stroke is a major cause of disability. Certain experimental studies have suggested that a combination of almitrine + raubasine (Duxil) increases the supply of oxygen to cerebral tissues and may be beneficial in post-stroke rehabilitation. This multicentre clinical study was carried out in order to assess the efficacy of this(More)
A completely integrated 2.4GHz low-power low-phase-noise voltage-controlled oscillator (VCO) was implemented in a standard 0.18/spl mu/m CMOS single-poly, 6-metal mixed-signal CMOS process. The VCO-core draws 1.5mA of current from a 1.2V supply. Comparison shows that this design has better performance than previously published similar results.
UNLABELLED Enzymatic extrusion, instead of traditional steam cooking, to treat rice is an efficient and alternative pretreatment for Chinese rice wine fermentation. In order to determine the formation of volatiles in enzymatic extrusion-processed rice wine (EE), and to confirm its characteristic flavor compounds, headspace solid-phase micro-extraction(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate whether an association occurred between the IRF6 G820A polymorphism and nonsyndromic cleft lip with or without cleft palate (CL+/-P) or cleft palate only (CPO) in Chinese patients. DESIGN AND SETTING Case-controlled study at the West China Hospital of Stomatology, Sichuan University, China. SUBJECTS A total of 91 patients with(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this retrospective study was to investigate the diagnostic methods, therapeutic principles, surgical approach, and materials used for orbital floor reconstruction. STUDY DESIGN This study consisted of 21 cases with orbital fractures treated at the Hospital of Stomatology, Sichuan University, China, between July 2002 and June 2006.(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to develop a feasible approach to promote bone healing in osteoporotic rats using autogenous bone tissue-engineering and gene transfection of human bone morphogenetic protein 2 (hBMP-2). METHODS Bone marrow stromal cells (BMSCs) from the left tibia of osteoporotic rats were transfected with the hBMP-2 gene in vitro(More)
Infobuttons have proven to be an important element in modern electronic health records (EHR), providing educational materials to both providers and patients. However, the usage of infobuttons in personalized health records (PHR) is only lightly documented in the literature. Patient-facing infobuttons pose a new challenge because patients have different(More)
The high absorption rate of transplanted fat has limited the application of autogenous fat grafts in the clinical setting. Therefore, this study aimed to evaluate the effects of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and adipose-derived stem cells (ASCs) on fat regeneration by investigating the impact of PRP and conditioned medium on the biological characteristics of(More)
Mechanical stress is a well-acknowledged positive regulatory factor for osteogenic differentiation of adipose- derived mesenchymal stem cells (ADSCs). However, the molecular mechanisms associated with micro-RNAs (miRNAs) whereby ADSCs respond to mechanical stimuli remain elusive. We investigated the mechanism of mechanotransduction from the miRNA(More)
