Human mesenchymal stem cells in synovial fluid increase in the knee with degenerated cartilage and osteoarthritis
We investigated whether mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) in synovial fluid (SF) increased in the knee with degenerated cartilage and osteoarthritis. SF was obtained from the knee joints of 22 patientsExpand
Characterization of Arabidopsis thaliana Pinoresinol Reductase, a New Type of Enzyme Involved in Lignan Biosynthesis*
A lignan, lariciresinol, was isolated from Arabidopsis thaliana, the most widely used model plant in plant bioscience sectors, for the first time. In the A. thaliana genome database, there are twoExpand
Local adherent technique for transplanting mesenchymal stem cells as a potential treatment of cartilage defect
IntroductionCurrent cell therapy for cartilage regeneration requires invasive procedures, periosteal coverage and scaffold use. We have developed a novel transplantation method with synovialExpand
In vitro evaluation of the influence of repairing condition of denture base resin on the bonding of autopolymerizing resins.
STATEMENT OF PROBLEM Bonding failures of repair resin to denture base resin occurs when denture base resin is wet, however, little is known of how water relates to failures. PURPOSE This studyExpand
Improvement of bonding to bleached bovine tooth surfaces by ascorbic acid treatment.
The purposes of this study were twofold: (1) to examine the effects of bleaching on the bond strength of an adhesive to bovine tooth surfaces; and (2) to explore the effectiveness of an ascorbic acidExpand
Properties and usefulness of aggregates of synovial mesenchymal stem cells as a source for cartilage regeneration
IntroductionTransplantation of mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) derived from synovium is a promising therapy for cartilage regeneration. For clinical application, improvement of handling operation,Expand
Usefulness of contrast-enhanced ultrasonography with a new contrast mode, Agent Detection Imaging, in evaluating therapeutic response in hepatocellular carcinoma treated with radio-frequency ablation
Objective: The therapeutic response of radio-frequency ablation (RFA) for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) was evaluated by contrast-enhanced ultrasonography (US) using a new contrast mode, agentExpand
Characterization of raspberry ketone/zingerone synthase, catalyzing the alpha, beta-hydrogenation of phenylbutenones in raspberry fruits.
Phenylbutanone raspberry ketone, accumulating in the mature fruits of raspberry (Rubus idaeus), imparts the characteristic aroma to the fruits. Here we describe the isolation and characterization ofExpand
Oncologic outcomes after secondary surgery in recurrent clear-cell carcinoma of the ovary
Objective Complete tumor resection is considered essential in the management of patients with ovarian clear-cell carcinoma. There is a debate regarding whether patients with recurrent ovarianExpand
