In recent years, stem cells have been the subject of increasing scientific interest because of their utility in numerous biomedical applications. Stem cells are capable of renewing themselves; that is, they can be continuously cultured in an undifferentiated state, giving rise to more specialized cells of the human body such as heart, liver, bone marrow,(More)
Peroxisome proliferators such as the fibrates act via the peroxisome proliferator activated receptor (PPAR)-alpha as hypolipidemic agents. Many peroxisome proliferators are also nongenotoxic hepatic carcinogens and hepatotoxicants in rodents. We performed transcription profiling using cDNA microarrays on livers of rats treated for 5 days with 3 doses of the(More)
This work introduces a 3D+t coronary registration strategy to minimize the navigation among cardiac phases during the process of ischaemic heart disease diagnosis. We propose to register image sub-volumes containing suspected arterial lesions at two cardiac phases, instead of performing a registration of the complete cardiac volume through the whole cardiac(More)
