PURPOSE Bone defects and nonunions are major clinical skeletal problems. Growth factors are commonly used to promote bone regeneration; however, the clinical impact is limited because the factors do not last long at a given site. The introduction of tissue engineering aimed to deter the diffusion of these factors is a promising therapeutic strategy. The(More)
Osteochondral injuries remain difficult to repair. We developed a novel photo-cross-linkable furfurylamine-conjugated gelatin (gelatin-FA). Gelatin-FA was rapidly cross-linked by visible light with Rose Bengal, a light sensitizer, and was kept gelled for 3 weeks submerged in saline at 37°C. When bone marrow-derived stromal cells (BMSCs) were suspended in(More)
Recombinant human gelatin was conjugated with dopamine using carbodiimide as a surface modifier. This dopamine-coupled human gelatin (D-rhG) was characterized by (1)H-nuclear magnetic resonance, mass spectroscopy, and circular dichroism. D-rhG-coated surface properties were analyzed by physicochemical methods. Additionally, cell attachment and growth on the(More)
The purpose of this study was to assess the relationship between the positioning of upper extremity and gliding distance of the median nerve during passive and active motion of the wrist and fingers. The longitudinal gliding of the medial nerve in the forearm was measured in 34 healthy subjects by ultrasonographic dynamic images. Those images were analyzed(More)
To evaluate the effect of expression of latent membrane protein (LMP) 1 encoded by Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) on Cε mRNA expression, mRNA levels were examined by RT-PCR or Northern blot analysis upon transient transfection of LMP1 in the spleno-cytes derived from Brown-Norway rats with or without immunization with 2,4-dinitrophenyl-conjugated Ascaris suum(More)
We aim to clarify whether suplatast and azelastine (anti-allergic drugs) can shorten the half-life of imnunoglobulin E (IgE) in the circulating blood. Thirty Wistar rats were divided into six groups. Distilled water or anti-allergic drugs were given orally for 6 days after the first sensitization. Two milligrams of monoclonal dinitrophenyl (DNP)-specific(More)
This paper proposes an interactive rewriting tool for supporting people in creating machine acceptable sentences. The experiment and evaluation of this tool conducted when applied to a pre-editing support tool in a Japanese-to-English machine translation (henceforth, MT) system are also described. 1. Introduction Supporting people in creating machine(More)
