Knee osteoarthritis is a degenerative disease of diarthrodial joints. Biomechanical factors are considered as risk factors for the disease, the knee joint being normally subject to pressure. Some studies have examined the biomechanical environment of the knee joint in vitro. The aim of this study was to establish a culture model to mimic the knee joint… (More)
The Earth observation satellites have been monitoring the earth’s surface for a long time, and the images taken by the satellites contain large amounts of valuable data. However, it is extremely hard work to manually analyze such huge data. Thus, a method of automatic object detection is needed for satellite images to facilitate efficient data analyses.… (More)
We designed a cyclic compression system using readily available six-well culture plates to investigate the influence of mechanical stress on skin-like structures. The effects of cyclic mechanical stress on protein expression by cells were easily examined, and hence, this system should be useful for further analysis of skin responses to mechanical stress.
OBJECTIVES Fish proteins are potential sources of natural medicines and food additives. There are many studies being performed to develop underutilized fish proteins. Therefore, the aim of this study was to determine how shark protein functions as a dietary supplement for bone health. METHODS Three groups of ovariectomized (OVX) rats were fed different… (More)
