There remains debate as to the optimal treatment for a given patient and fracture. Despite the popularity of volar locking plate fixation, there are few large cohort or long term follow up studies to justify this modality. Our aim was to(More)
We have extended our studies on the relationship between cisplatin/carboplatin-induced DNA damage in readily accessible tissue(s) and clinical response to therapy. Such an approach may assist in the study of cancer drug resistance and in establishing parameters for assessing human populations for sensitivity to DNA damaging agents in the environment.(More)
Caloric vestibular stimulation (CVS) has been demonstrated to transiently modulate a variety of cognitive functions. These effects are associated with the brain activation induced by CVS, involving the temporal-parietal cortex, anterior cingulate cortex and insular cortex, which are thought to form a multimodal vestibular cortical network. The present study(More)

XEN cells are derived from an early stage murine embryo and represent an in vitro model of extraembryonic endoderm, an extraembryonic tissue that is essential for the proper development of the embryo. Visceral endoderm, a subtype of extraembry-onic endoderm, is known to directly influence epiblast development through several inductive (and anti-inductive)(More)
