OBJECTIVE To evaluate the effectiveness of self-management programs on pain and disability for chronic musculoskeletal pain conditions by systematic review. METHODS A search of randomized controlled trials was conducted in Medline and Embase from 1970s to 2010. Two reviewers independently selected trials, conducted critical appraisal of the methodological(More)
We report a new type of core-shell heterostructure consisting of a rod-like NiCo2S4 (NCS) core and an urchin-like Ni(1-x)Co x (OH)2 (NCOH) shell via a simple hydrothermal route coupled with a facile electrodeposition. NCS nanorod arrays (NRAs) can not only act as excellent electrochemically active materials by themselves, but they can also serve as(More)
Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) and prostatitis are very common diseases in elderly men. The recent researches demonstrate that chronic inflammation is often present in the prostatic tissue of patients with BPH and the platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF) plays an important part in stimulating prostatic cell proliferation by inducing mitogenesis. This(More)
Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) had been reported as a novel therapeutic strategy for non-healing diabetic cutaneous wound mainly by promoting the formation of extracellular matrix (ECM) and neovasculature. Collagen regeneration is one of the key processes of ECM remodeling in wound healing. Accordingly, rapid assessment of the collagen content in a(More)
This paper presents closed-form solutions for the problem of long-term satellite relative motion in the presence of J2 perturbations, and introduces a design methodology for long-term passive distance-bounded relativemotion. There are two key ingredients of closedform solutions.One is the model of relative motion; the other is the Hamiltonianmodel and its(More)
The regional injection of connective tissue growth factor (CTGF) for diabetic wound healing requires multiple components and results in a substantial loss of its biological activity. Acellular dermal matrix (ADM) scaffolds are optimal candidates for delivering these factors to local ischemic environments. In this study, we explored whether CTGF loaded on(More)
Solanine, a naturally steroidal glycoalkaloid in nightshade (Solanum nigrum Linn.), can inhibit proliferation and induce apoptosis of tumor cells. However, the mechanism of solanine-suppressing prostate cancer cell growth remains to be elucidated. This study investigates the inhibition mechanism of solanine on cancer development in vivo and in cultured(More)
In the title complex, [Zn(C18H10N4O2)(CH4O)], the Zn(2+) cation is located on a mirror plane and is coordinated by a tetradentate Schiff base ligand anion (L (2-)) and a methanol mol-ecule. The Zn(2+) cation is surrounded by two N atoms and two O atoms from L (2-), in a nearly planar configuration, and one methanol O atom, forming a slightly distorted(More)
