Small-Diameter Blood Vessels Engineered With Bone Marrow–Derived Cells
It is shown that BMCs have the potential to regenerate vascular tissues and improve patency in tissue-engineered small-diameter vascular grafts, the first report of a small-Diameter neovessel engineered with BMCs as a cell source. Expand
The effect of cyclic strain on embryonic stem cell-derived cardiomyocytes.
The use of an elastic polymer scaffold designed to permit mechanical strain transduction as a cell transplantation vehicle significantly increases cardiomyogenesis of the implanted ESCs. Expand
This final report, in four volumes, of Strategic Highway Research Program (SHRP) Project A-002A describes intensive investigations of the chemical and physical properties of petroleum asphalts usedExpand
Poly(lactide-co-glycolide)/hydroxyapatite composite scaffolds for bone tissue engineering.
Results show that the biodegradable polymer/bioceramic composite scaffolds fabricated by the novel GF/PL method enhance bone regeneration compared with those fabricated byThe conventional SC/PL methods. Expand
In vivo bone formation from human embryonic stem cell-derived osteogenic cells in poly(d,l-lactic-co-glycolic acid)/hydroxyapatite composite scaffolds.
OC-hESCs successfully regenerated bone tissue upon in vivo implantation, and this regeneration can be further enhanced by the administration of BMP-2, which enhanced new bone tissue formation in terms of mineralization and the expression of bone-specific genetic markers. Expand
A Working Review of Available Non-Nuclear Equipment for Determining In-Place Density of Asphalt
Current non-nuclear methods of measuring asphalt pavement density use electrical properties of asphalt. Two known instruments, the PaveTracker™ and the PQI Model 300, estimate pavement density byExpand
Accelerated bonelike apatite growth on porous polymer/ceramic composite scaffolds in vitro.
The results indicate that the biomimetic apatite coating can be accelerated by using a polymer/ceramic composite scaffold and concentrated SBF and may provide enhanced osteogenic potential when used as scaffold for bone tissue engineering. Expand
In vitro cardiomyogenic differentiation of adipose‐derived stromal cells using transforming growth factor‐β1
Results showed that TGF‐β1 induce ADSC cardiomyogenic differentiation in vitro, which could be useful for myocardial infarction stem cell therapy. Expand
Direct measurement of asphalt binder thermal cracking
A new simple test device is proposed to directly measure the critical temperatures for thermal cracking of asphalt binders. Using the dissimilar coefficients of thermal expansion for asphalt bindersExpand
Development of an Asphalt Binder Cracking Device
This Innovations Deserving Exploratory Analysis (IDEA) project developed a simple asphalt binder cracking device (ABCD) to determine the thermal cracking temperature of asphalt binders. The ABCDExpand
