Gadolinium is detectable within the tissue of patients with nephrogenic systemic fibrosis.
BACKGROUND Nephrogenic systemic fibrosis (NSF) is a disease of unknown etiology that affects a subset of patients with renal insufficiency. Recent publications suggested an association betweenExpand
Bone development and age-related bone loss in male C57BL/6J mice.
The objective of this study was to examine changes in the long bones of male C57BL/6J mice with growth and aging, and to consider the applicability of this animal for use in studying Type IIExpand
Effect of nitinol implant porosity on cranial bone ingrowth and apposition after 6 weeks.
The present study addresses two aspects of the use of nitinol in cranial bone defect repair. The first is to verify that there is substantial bone ingrowth into the implant after 6 weeks; the secondExpand
Combustion synthesis of heterogeneous calcium phosphate bioceramics from calcium oxide and phosphate precursors
The solid-state reaction of combustion synthesis has been demonstrated to be capable of rapidly producing materials for biomedical applications. Reactant powders of CaO and P2O5 were pressed intoExpand
Combustion synthesis of porous biomaterials.
This article discusses the unique material manufacturing process of self-propagating high temperature synthesis (SHS) as applied to the making of porous biomaterials. Porous materials have long beenExpand
Long-term bone ingrowth and residual microhardness of porous block hydroxyapatite implants in humans.
PURPOSE This study examined the ingrowth of bone into coralline, porous hydroxyapatite (HA) block (Interpore 200) over long periods after orthognathic surgery and analyzed their microhardness as aExpand
Histomorphometric, physical, and mechanical effects of spaceflight and insulin-like growth factor-I on rat long bones.
Previous experiments have shown that skeletal unloading resulting from exposure to microgravity induces osteopenia in rats. In maturing rats, this is primarily a function of reduced formation, ratherExpand
Granulomatous reaction to titanium alloy: an unusual reaction to ear piercing.
A 68-year-old man presented with 4 firm, flesh-colored, and slightly erythematous nodules located on the superior pole and lobule of each ear. Although reluctant to provide details, it was discoveredExpand
Osteoblast-like cell mineralization induced by multiphasic calcium phosphate ceramic
The work presented here examines the effect of multiphasic CaP materials on the activity of SaOS-2 osteoblast like cells. Heterogeneous calcium phosphate (HCaP) was synthesized using self-propagatingExpand
