The purpose of this study was to purify and characterize canine hematopoietic progenitor cells for surface antigen phenotype and reconstitution ability. Canine hematopoietic progenitor cells were isolated by density gradient sedimentation, lineage depletion with monoclonal antibodies, and fluorescence-activated cell sorting (FACS) for selection of cells(More)
Natural surface waves, created by periodic circular motion of material particles, can transfer a long object placed upon the crests of the waves in an arbitrary direction within the horizontal plane. Inspired by this natural behavior, a surface wave distributed actuation method and its potential for transporting bedridden patients is explored in this paper.(More)
Bone tissue engineering mandates the development of a functional scaffold that mimics the physicochemical properties of native bone. Bioglass 45S5 (BG) is a highly bioactive material known to augment bone formation and restoration. Hybrid scaffolds fabricated using collagen type I and BG resemble the organic and inorganic composition of the bone(More)
The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of three levels of work intensity on the performance of a fine motor skill during steady-state exercies. Subjects were administered a progressive bicycle ergometer test to exhaustion in order to determine maximum heart rate (HRmax). Following practice sessions on the pursuit rotor, subjects performed 3(More)
