The tricyclic antidepressant, doxepin, has been reported to be a potent local anesthetic in rat sciatic nerve blockade. We hypothesized that topical doxepin has significantly longer antinociception compared with control and intrathecally compared with bupivacaine. Solutions of 0.3 mL of doxepin at 50, 75, and 100 mM and control (only the vehicle solution)(More)
BackgroundCystein-rich protein 61 (Cyr61/CCN1) is a member of the CCN family of matricellular proteins that has an important role in tissue development and remodeling. However, the role of CCN1 in the pathogenesis of bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD) is unknown. Accordingly, we have investigated the effects of CCN1 on a hyperoxia-induced lung injury model in(More)
We have prepared Chinese traditional herb Bletilla striata into microspheres as a novel embolic agent for decades. The aim of this study was to evaluate the biocompatibility of Bletilla striata microspheres (BSMs). After a thermal test of BSMs in vitro, the cell biocompatibility of BSMs was investigated in mouse fibroblasts and human umbilical vein(More)
