In the interstitial matrix, collagen unfolding at physiologic temperatures is thought to facilitate interactions with enzymes and scaffold molecules during inflammation, tissue remodeling, and wound healing. We tested the hypothesis that it also plays a role in modulating flows and matrix hydration potential. After progressively unfolding dermal collagen in(More)
PURPOSE To report a case series of two cases of granulomatosis with polyangiitis, previously known as Wegener granulomatosis, which developed macular necrosis, not previously associated with granulomatosis with polyangiitis, healed with fibrosis, despite aggressive immune-modulating therapy and good control of systemic disease. METHODS Case series of two(More)
Development of resorbable elastic composites as an alternative means to apply contractive forces for manipulating craniofacial bones is described herein. Composites made from the biodegradable elastomer, poly (1,8-octanediol co-citric acid) (POC), and hydroxyapatite (nHA) with a 200 nm diameter (0-20% loadings) were created to develop a material capable of(More)
While severe adverse effects are rare, evidence suggests significant physiological effects may be associated with the use of electrical incapacitation devices, or TASERs. In this case, a 28 year old Caucasian female with chronic, stable systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) was voluntarily tased in a work-related training procedure. Days later, she presented(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIM Reperfusion injury is a complex inflammatory response involving numerous mechanisms and pathways. Mechanical tissue resuscitation is a newly described therapeutic strategy that reduces reperfusion injury. This study further investigates potential mechanisms for the protective effects of mechanical tissue resuscitation while utilizing a(More)
