BACKGROUND Early functional rehabilitation is widely used after open suture repair of the Achilles tendon. To our knowledge, no previous studies have assessed gap formation from cyclic loading and subsequent failure loads of simulated Achilles tendon repairs. A synthetic (polyblend) suture has been introduced for tendon repairs with reportedly greater(More)
Agonist ligands for the nuclear receptor peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor-gamma have been shown to induce terminal differentiation of normal preadipocytes and human liposarcoma cells in vitro. Because the differentiation status of liposarcoma is predictive of clinical outcomes, modulation of the differentiation status of a tumor may favorably(More)
The frequency of disease for children who were breast fed as babies is lower than that for children who were bottle fed. Breast milk contains specific and nonspecific proteins which act against pathogens. The influence of breast milk on the development of juvenile periodontitis was examined.
