Accelerated degradation and improved bone-bonding ability of hydroxyapatite ceramics by the addition of glass.
Incorporation of glass additives into HA can be concluded to be a good candidate for producing a bone substitute that can partially degrade and bond to bone firmly and rapidly. Expand
Dengue Virus, Nepal
Clinical features in most patients were consistent with signs of DF, but some patients showed signs of DHF, which is considered to be a possible public health threat to Nepal because DF/DHF epidemics have occurred recently in India and Pakistan, which reported several thousand cases and >100 deaths.

Density and Hardness Gradients of Functionally Graded Material Ring Fabricated from Al-3 mass%Cu Alloy by a Centrifugal In-Situ Method
In present study, the Al-Al2Cu functionally graded material (FGM) ring was fabricated from Al-3 mass%Cu initial master alloy by the centrifugal in-situ method. In the case of Al-3 mass%Cu alloy, theExpand
Interactive effect of galanin-like peptide (GALP) and spontaneous exercise on energy metabolism
Results indicate the GALP ICV administration can further promote energy metabolism when administered to spontaneously exercising mice, with significant effects on liver and skeletal muscle samples and energy metabolism-related enzymes. Expand
Anti-obesity effects of hot water extract from Wasabi (Wasabia japonica Matsum.) leaves in mice fed high-fat diets
It is demonstrated that the WLE dietary supplement induces mild suppression of obesity in a high-fat diet induced mice, possibly due to suppression of lipid accumulation in liver and white adipose tissue. Expand
High performance liquid chromatography of proteins on a hydroxyapatite column
Abstract High performance liquid chromatography on a spherical ceramic type hydroxyapatite has been applied successfully for the separation of various kinds of proteins. Twenty-one proteins ofExpand
Determinations of strength of synthetic hydroxyapatite ceramic implants.
Results of strength testing of plates of various shapes and thicknesses constructed from clinical computed tomography data revealed that minimum optimization of the parameters was achieved when plates had a porosity of about 40 percent and a thickness of about 8 mm. Expand
Separation of double-strand DNA fragments by high-performance liquid chromatography using a ceramic hydroxyapatite column
Abstract The liquid chromatographic behavior of double-strand DNA fragments was investigated using a column packed with a newly developed ceramic hydroxyapatite sintered at 950°C (pore size: 1500 A)Expand
In vivo maturation of scaffold-free engineered articular cartilage on hydroxyapatite.
To test whether osteochondral tissue, fabricated in vitro using the ARC method combined with a block of HA, would undergo maturation in vivo using a subcutaneous model in immunodeficient mice, the results presented here represent a possible approach to form a tissue-engineered osteochondrals implant.

Suppressive effect of hot water extract of wasabi (Wasabia japonica Matsum.) leaves on the differentiation of 3T3-L1 preadipocytes.
WLE may prevent obesity and insulin resistance by inhibiting the differentiation of preadipocytes, and the suppressive effect was mediated, in part, through the altered regulation of PPARγ, C/EBPα, and other specific genes, such as aP2. Expand
