In this study, a heterologous radioimmunoassay (RIA) for grass carp GH has been validated and used to monitor the kinetics of GH release from perifused grass carp pituitary cells. To establish the anatomical specificity of GH antiserum used in this RIA, immunohistochemical staining was performed in grass carp pituitary sections. Somatotrophs recognized by(More)
OBJECTIVE To examine if leaving special schools has a negative impact on the health care and social isolation of young adults with cerebral palsy. METHODS Young adults with cerebral palsy, aged between 15 and 22 years, were divided into 2 cohorts: current students, who were still receiving services from special schools, and school-leavers, who had since(More)
This paper presents a novel microfluidic system for rapid label-free detection of endothelial progenitor cells (EPCs) from small volumes of white blood cells samples, to obtain a bedside cardiovascular diagnostic solution. The system was built on a single 1 cm(2) microelectrode array silicon chip, integrated with negative dielectrophoresis for cell(More)
This paper reports the development of a microfluidic system for rapid separation of rare endothelial progenitor cells (EPCs) in small volumes of whole blood (<100µl), as well as their selective capture and detection by immunochemistry coupled with electrochemical impedance sensing on a microelectrode array (MEA). EPCs are involved in the healing of(More)
