Cytomegalovirus (CMV) establishes lifelong infections with episodes of active replication. We hypothesized that recurrent CMV replication in older individuals may suppress protective immune responses to non-tuberculous mycobacteria (NTM) and so potentiate pulmonary disease. Accordingly, levels of antibodies to three CMV antigen preparations were higher in(More)
hBMSCs are multipotent cells that are useful for tissue regeneration to treat degenerative diseases and others for their differentiation ability into chondrocytes, osteoblasts, adipocytes, hepatocytes and neuronal cells. In this study, biodegradable elastic hydrogels consisting of hydrophilic poly(ethylene glycol) (PEG) and hydrophobic poly(ε-caprolactone)(More)
The authors successfully performed a series of 32 distal finger reconstructions using partial second toe-to-finger transfers solely for aesthetic indications. The resulting hand function shows an average static 2-point discrimination of 8 mm. Total active range of motion was 205 degrees. Key-pinch strength and grip strength averaged 65 and 90% of the normal(More)
BACKGROUND Non-erosive reflux disorder, which represents more than 60% of gastro-esophageal reflux disorders, lacks objective parameters for diagnosis. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the correlation between non-erosive minimal lesions at the lower esophagus and gastro-esophageal reflux disorder. METHODS Patients were asked to answer a symptom(More)
