We introduce a new concept of 'co-recognition' for object-level image matching between an arbitrary image pair. Our method augments putative local region matches to reliable object-level correspondences without any supervision or prior knowledge on common objects. It provides the number of reliable common objects and the dense correspondences between the(More)
Microporous, non-woven poly( epsilon -caprolactone) (PCL) scaffolds were made by electrostatic fiber spinning. In this process, polymer fibers with diameters down to the nanometer range, or nanofibers, are formed by subjecting a fluid jet to a high electric field. Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) derived from the bone marrow of neonatal rats were cultured,(More)
Endophytic actinobacterial diversity in the native herbaceous plant species of Korea was analyzed using a culture-based approach. Sixty one actinobacterial strains were isolated, and assigned to 15 genera based on 16S rRNA gene analysis. The members of the genus Streptomyces comprised 45.9% of the total isolates, followed by Micromonospora (18.8%),(More)
Over the last decade, bone tissue engineering scaffolds have been advanced owing to the bioceramic incorporation and biomimetic modification. In this report, a dual-functional fibrous scaffold with a bioceramic and biomolecule is developed, and a combined effect of a dual-modification is investigated. Biphasic calcium phosphate (BCP) is incorporated in(More)
We address an unsupervised object detection and segmentation problem that goes beyond the conventional assumptions of one-to-one object correspondences or modeltest settings between images. Our method can detect and segment identical objects directly from a single image or a handful of images without any supervision. To detect and segment all the(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare the effectiveness of amisulpride in acute (up to 8 weeks) and maintenance (week 8 to 12 months) phases of a 12-month course of treatment in a heterogeneous group of patients with schizophrenia. METHODS We conducted a 12-month, open-label clinical trial with flexible doses of amisulpride among 129 Korean patients with schizophrenia.(More)
AIMS Cardiac tissue engineering has been proposed as an appropriate method to repair myocardial infarction (MI). Evidence suggests that a cell with scaffold combination was more effective than a cell-only implant. Nevertheless, to date, there has been no research into elastic biodegradable poly(lactide-co-epsilon-caprolactone) (PLCL) scaffolds. The aim of(More)
Mast cells have long been believed to be the central effector cells in the development of immunoglobulin (Ig)E-dependent anaphylaxis. In this study, we investigated the role of mast cells in IgE-dependent hapten-induced active fatal anaphylaxis using mast cell-deficient WBB6F1- W/Wv (W/Wv) and congenic normal (+/+) mice. Although a 5-min delay in shock(More)
To investigate the effects of water-soluble vitamin supplementation for IVM/IVC of porcine oocytes and evaluate maturation and developmental capacity in vitro, porcine cumulus oocyte complexes (COCs) was matured in NCSU-23-based medium with water-soluble vitamins for 44 h and then cultured in PZM-3 for 7 days following activation. The COCs were allocated(More)
Over the past decades, hydrogels have been widely studied as biomaterials for various biomedical applications like implants, drugs and cell delivery carriers because of their high biocompatibility, high water contents and excellent permeability for nutrients and metabolites. Especially, in situ forming hydrogel systems have received much attention because(More)
