OBJECTIVE To determine the incidence, etiology, and concurrent ophthalmic findings in small breed dogs that presented with cataracts. ANIMAL STUDIED Five hundred and sixty-one small breed dogs (942 eyes) were presented to the Veterinary Medical Teaching Hospital of Seoul National University between July 2002 and December 2007 with cataract.

Partial-thickness cartilage defects, with no subchondral bone injury, do not repair spontaneously, thus there is no clinically effective treatment for these lesions. Although the autologous chondrocyte transplantation (ACT) is one of the promising approaches for cartilage repair, it requires in vitro cell expansion to get sufficient cells, but chondrocytes(More)
Wilfoside K1N is a polyoxypregnane glycoside isolated from Cynanchum wilfordii (Asclepiadaceae). Polyoxypregnane glycosides are associated with cellular immunity and anti-tumor activity, and increase the cytotoxicity of many anti-cancer drugs showing multidrug resistant activity on tumor cells. In the present study, we investigated the anti-angiogenic and(More)
The authors describe a new type of titanium (Ti) implant as a Modi-anodized (ANO) Ti implant, the surface of which was treated by sandblasting, acid etching (SLA), and anodized techniques. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the adhesion of MG-63 cells to Modi-ANO surface treated Ti in vitro and to investigate its osseointegration characteristics(More)
Delivering isolated chondrocytes with matrix is a promising approach to promote the cartilage repair. The present study attempted to combine the advantages of porous scaffold and hydrogel in delivering chondrocytes to partial-thickness cartilage defects. An electrospun, gelatin-incorporated PLCL scaffold mechanically similar to natural cartilage was(More)
In this study, we investigated the effects of total ginseng saponin (TGS) on the cutaneous wound healing process using histological analysis. A total of 24 ICR mice, 5-weeks-old, were used for all in vivo experiments. Mice were divided into control and TGS-treated groups and four equidistant 1-cm full-thickness dorsal incisional wounds were created. The(More)
The aim of this study was to develop bone morphogenetic protein-2 (BMP-2) immobilization on titanium (Ti) modified by heparin for improving osteoblast function in vitro and bone formation in vivo. The Ti surface was first modified with heparin and then immobilized with BMP-2 (BMP-2/Hep-Ti). The Ti and modified Ti were characterized by scanning electron(More)
The purpose of the study was to compare two different electroretinography (ERG) instruments used on the same animal in a laboratory setting. Retinal function in both eyes of 12 healthy miniature schnauzers was evaluated under general anesthesia. Scotopic and photopic ERGs were recorded by the HMsERG and the RETIport using the Dog Standard Protocol(More)
Recently, the ligament-bone (LTB) junction has been emphasized for the effective transmission of mechanical force and the reduction in stress concentration between the soft ligament and hard bone tissue. The aim of this study was to regenerate an integrated LTB interface by inoculating LTB-relevant cells, isolated from fibrocartilage (FC) or ligament (LIG),(More)
