The aim of this study is to demonstrate the effect of extracellular calcium ion (Ca2+) and inorganic phosphate (Pi) concentrations on the growth and differentiation of bone-marrow-derived mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs), which is essential to understand the interaction between calcium phosphate ceramic (CPC) scaffolds and seeded cells during the construction(More)
UNLABELLED It is suggested that nanophase hydroxyapatite (nHAP) might have advantages over conventional hydroxyapatite (cHAP) as a biomaterial for bone regeneration. To be a satisfactory candidate for bone tissue engineering, it is important to support the growth and differentiation of bone marrow-derived mesenchymal stem cells (BMSCs). The purpose of this(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the effect of Cordyceps sinensis (CS) on pancreatic islet B cells of experimental hepatic fibrogenesis rats. METHODS Rats were randomly allocated into three groups: normal group, model group and CS group. The rats in the latter two groups were administered with CCl(4) solution to induce liver fibrosis, the CS group was also(More)
Beam structure is one of the most widely used structures in mechanical engineering and civil engineering. Ultrasonic guided wave based crack identification is one of the most important and accepted approaches applied to detect unseen small flaws in structures. Numerical simulations of ultrasonic guided wave propagation have caught more and more attention(More)
Numerical simulation of ultrasonic wave propagation provides an efficient tool for crack identification in structures, while it requires a high resolution and expensive time calculation cost in both time integration and spatial discretization. Wavelet finite element model provides a highorder finite element model and gives a higher accuracy on spatial(More)
