Vascular Remodeling and Neointimal Formation Depend on Stent Design in Small Coronary Arteries
Stenting of small coronary arteries is a complex issue that has been faced with problems of acute thrombosis and later restenosis. Small arteries present a distinct problem because there is a much greater proportional ...
Physical Therapy : Keeping the "Dis" Out of the "Able"
The author combines a journal reflecting on her experiences interning in physical therapy at Bronson Methodist Hospital with a review of the areas of specialization within physical therapy.
Vitamin K-Dependent Coagulation Factor Levels in the Cord Blood of Full-Term and Premature Infants: An Establishment of Normal Reference Values and Comparison of Factor Levels Between Term and Preterm Infants
It has been shown that significantly lower amounts of Vitamin K-dependent coagulation factors (Factors II, IX, X, Protein C, and total and free Protein S) are found in newborns as compared to adults. This study was ...
Experimental Implantation and Evaluation of Mitral Valves in Sheep
With the development of cardiopulmonary bypass in 1960, cardiac valve replacement became the most popular method of treatment for severe cardiac valve disease. Since that time, valve replacement operations have become ...
Cloning of Genes with High Homology to the Faciogenital Dysplasia (FGD1) Gene; The Human FGD2, Mouse FGD2, and Zebra Fish FGD1 Genes
Faciogenital dysplasia (FGDY), also known as Aarskog-Scott syndrome, is an X-linked developmental disorder characterized by disproportionately short stature and by facial, skeletal, and urogenital anomalies. Molecular ...
Potential Antagonism of Cocaine Effects on Extracellular Dopamine: Microdialysis Studies with GBR 12909
It is well known that cocaine increases striatal extracellular dopamine (ECDA) levels in vivo. Previous studies have also shown that GBR 12909 1-[2-[bis(fluorophenyl)methoxy ]ethyl]-4-[3-pheynyl-propyl]piperazine increases ...
The Use of Photoelastic Technology in the Localization of Strain on the Equine Hoof Wall: An In Vitro Pilot Study
As horses place weight upon their hooves, the hoof wall deforms to absorb the stress of impact. This results in strain upon the hoof wall. High levels of strain can predispose the hoof to pathological conditions. In the ...
The Effect of Acetyl-L-Carnitine and Exercise on the Mechanical Function of Aged Medial Gastrocnemius Muscles in Male Fisher 344 Rats
Aging is associated with sarcopenia, the severe loss of skeletal muscle mass and strength, which can contribute to physical frailty, vulnerability to injury, and loss of independence in the elderly population. Endurance ...
The Loss of Heterozygosity on Chromosome Regions 3p, 5q, 8p, 9p, l0p, l8q, and 2lq in Squamous Cell Carcinoma of the Head and Neck
Squamous cell carcinoma affects 60,000 persons each year in the United States. Squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck (SCCHN) accounts for 10% of all cancers and 5% of malignant neoplasms and cancer deaths in the ...
A Study of the Effects of Trichomonas vaginalis Proteases on Matrix Metalloproteinase 9 Found in HT 1080 Human Fibrosarcoma Cells
This research is concerned primarily with MMP-9, known also as Type IV collagenase or gelatinase B, a zinc-requiring protease of 92 kDa apparent molecular weight under reducing conditions, and 88 kDa under non-reducing ...
