This study is designed to evaluate the therapeutic effects of three types of neurospheres (NSs) derived from brain, bone marrow and adipose tissue in a rat model of spinal contusive injury. As shown by BBB locomotor rating scale and grid test, the optimal therapeutic responses generated by subventricular zone-derived NSs (SVZ-NSs), and followed by(More)
Recent studies suggest that bone marrow stromal cells (BMSCs) are promising grafts for treatment of traumatic brain injury (TBI). Neural precursor cells (NPCs) have been detected in the site of cervical cord injury following intrathecal injection by lumbar puncture. So, this study is designed to determine whether BMSCs (after intrathecal administration by(More)
Drug resistance is a major challenge in cancer therapeutics. Abundant evidence indicates that DNA repair systems are enhanced after repetitive chemotherapeutic treatments, rendering cancers cells drug-resistant. Flap endonuclease 1 (FEN1) plays critical roles in DNA replication and repair and in counteracting replication stress, which is a key mechanism for(More)
Cancer cells frequently up-regulate DNA replication and repair proteins such as the multifunctional DNA2 nuclease/helicase, counteracting DNA damage due to replication stress and promoting survival. Therefore, we hypothesized that blocking both DNA replication and repair by inhibiting the bifunctional DNA2 could be a potent strategy to sensitize cancer(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS The coexistence of scoliosis and split cord malformation (SCM) is often encountered. The characteristics of the osseous septum of SCM are still unknown to us. Here we try to delineate the configuration and nature of the osseous septa. The correlation between scoliosis and SCM is also discussed. METHODS 48 patients hospitalized for(More)
This paper describes an automatic and accurate segmentation method to extract the acetabulum tissue from sequential CT images. The hip joint consists of acetabulum and femoral head. In the personalized femoral head prosthesis designing by reverse engineering technology, obtaining the accurate acetabulum shape is the most important task. However, due to the(More)

Controlled drug release has a high priority for the development of modern medicine and biochemistry. To develop a versatile method for controlled release, a miniaturized acoustic gigahertz (GHz) resonator is designed and fabricated which can transfer electric supply to mechanical vibrations. By contacting with liquid, the GHz resonator directly excites(More)
BACKGROUND Multiligand receptor for advanced glycation end products (RAGE), osteoprotegerin, and Golgb1 genes may be implicated in atherosclerosis and vascular diseases. Single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) rs1035798 in RAGE gene, rs2073617 and rs2073618 in TNFRSF11B, and rs3732410 in Golgb1 will be investigated on whether there is an association with(More)
