Some types of peripheral neuropathic pain are associated with damage to myelin rather than to axons of primary sensory neurons. It is extremely important to develop selective demyelination animal models for understanding neuropathic pain caused by demyelination. We induced a rapid-onset and reversible demyelination of peripheral A-fibers and neuropathic(More)
The purpose of this study was to test the mutant selection window (MSW) hypothesis in vitro and in vivo with Staphylococcus aureus exposed to fosfomycin. With the in vitro time–kill studies, S. aureus ATCC 29213 [with a minimal concentration that inhibits colony formation by 99 % (MIC99) of 2.2 μg/mL and a mutant prevention concentration (MPC) of 57.6(More)
This study presents an information-theoretic approach for adaptive identification of an unknown Wiener system. A two-criterion identification scheme is proposed, in which the adaptive system comprises a linear finite-impulse response filter trained by maximum mutual information (MaxMI) criterion and a polynomial non-linearity learned by traditional mean(More)
We investigated the biomechanics of the radiocapitate joint after a proximal row carpectomy in six fresh-frozen cadaver wrists using super-low-pressure-sensitive film on a material testing system. The average pressure within the lunate fossa increased significantly from 23.2 to 136.4 N/cm(2) with a sharp decrease in the contact area from 2.08 to 0.30 cm(2)(More)
