Tongue Papillae in Goat: a Scanning Electron‐Microscopic Study
The tongue papillae of 6‐9‐month‐old Jamunapari goats were studied by scanning electron‐microscopy. The conical‐shaped filiform papillae had 3–6 pointed projections and 6–8 secondary papillae at theExpand

The Prevalence of Foot Ulceration and its Correlates in Type 2 Diabetic Patients: a Population‐based Study
The prevalence of peripheral neuropathy, peripheral vascular disease, and foot ulceration in Type 2 diabetic patients in the community were determined in a community‐based study. Eight hundred andExpand

CD105 antagonizes the inhibitory signaling of transforming growth factor βl on human vascular endothelial cells
CD105 (endoglin), a receptor for transforming growth factor β (TGFβ), is highly expressed in tissue‐cultured, activated endothelial cells in vitro and in tissues undergoing angiogenesis in vivo. TheExpand

Angiogenesis induced by degradation products of hyaluronic acid.
Partial degradation products of sodium hyaluronate produced by the action of testicular hyaluronidase induced an angiogenic response (formation of new blood vessels) on the chick chorioallantoicExpand

Semmes-Weinstein monofilaments: a simple, effective and inexpensive screening device for identifying diabetic patients at risk of foot ulceration.
Both vibration perception threshold (VPT) by biothesiometry and pressure perception using Semmes-Weinstein monofilaments (filaments) have been proposed to identify diabetic patients at risk of footExpand

CD105 is important for angiogenesis: evidence and potential applications
Angiogenesis is the propelling force for tumor growth and metastasis, and antiangiogenic therapy represents one of the most promising modalities for cancer treatment. CD105 (endoglin) is aExpand

The effect of hyaluronate and its oligosaccharides on endothelial cell proliferation and monolayer integrity.
Hyaluronidase treatment of hyaluronic acid produced a series of oligosaccharides. Those between 3 and 16 disaccharides in length stimulated angiogenesis in vivo and the proliferation of tissueExpand

Oligosaccharides of hyaluronan induce angiogenesis through distinct CD44 and RHAMM-mediated signalling pathways involving Cdc2 and gamma-adducin.
We used short-interfering RNA (siRNA) to knockdown the hyaluronan (HA) receptors CD44 and the receptor for hyaluronan-mediated motility (RHAMM) in vascular endothelial cells to investigate their roleExpand
