Endothelial cells (ECs) subjected to shear stress constantly release nitric oxide (NO). The effect of NO on shear stress-induced endothelial responses was examined. ECs subjected to shear stress induced a transient and shear force-dependent increase in early growth response-1 (Egr-1) mRNA levels. Treatment of ECs with an NO donor,(More)
D espite improved treatment, a significant number of diabetic foot ulcers do not heal and eventually lead to amputation (1–5). The important local factors determining the healing rate of ulcers are pressure at the site of the ulcer, adequacy of blood supply, and infection. It is generally accepted that for optimal healing, infection needs to be treated.(More)
Connective tissue growth factor (CTGF), also known as CCN-2, is a cysteine-rich secreted protein that is involved in a range of biological processes, including regulation of cell growth and differentiation. Our previous in vitro studies have shown that CCN-2 inhibits adipocyte differentiation, although whether CCN-2 is regulated in vivo in adipogenesis is(More)
The Internet is becoming the preferred place for finding information. Millions of people go online in search of health and medical information. Likewise, health care professionals must be able to retrieve and manage information in an efficient, effective manner. The development of health technology and informatics (HTI) has been rapid, yet little is known(More)
