Cell sheet technology has been widely employed for the treatment of myocardial infarction (MI), but cell sheet fabrication generally requires the use of thermo-responsive dishes. Here we developed a method for the preparation of adipose-derived stem cell (ASC) sheet that obviated the need of thermo-responsive dishes. This method only required the seeding of(More)
Heterogeneous Fenton reactions have been proven to be an effective and promising selective cancer cell treatment method. The key working mechanism for this method to achieve the critical therapeutic selectivity however remains unclear. In this study, we proposed and demonstrated for the first time the critical role played by catalase in realizing the(More)
PURPOSE We aimed at improving the existing methods for the fully automatic quantification of striatal uptake of [(99m)Tc]-TRODAT with SPECT imaging. PROCEDURES A normal [(99m)Tc]-TRODAT template was first formed based on 28 healthy controls. Images from PD patients (n = 365) and nPD subjects (28 healthy controls and 33 essential tremor patients) were(More)
The present study systemically investigated the influence of gated/non-gated sequences, velocity encoding (VENC), and spatial resolution on blood flow, wall shear stress (WSS), and artery area evaluations when scanning the common carotid artery (CCA) in rats using phase-contrast magnetic resonance imaging (PC-MRI). We first tested whether or not non-gated(More)
