Blood flow measurement from digital angiography
Computational fluid dynamic (CFD) simulations are emerging as a promising tool for diagnosis and treatment planning of vascular diseases such as intracranial aneurysms. In addition to the three-dimensional luminal geometry, ...
Development and evaluation of a new high-sensitivity, region-of-interest, x-ray imaging system for neuro-interventional applications
Neurovascular image-guided interventional (IGI) procedures require very high resolution (3 to 10 lp/mm), large dynamic range, and real-time imaging capability for visualization and navigation of endovascular devices during ...
Robust microbial fabrication of plant pharmaceuticals: Complexities and solutions
Abstract not available.
Bite force estimation of Smilodon fatalis using forward and inverse methodologies
Bite force estimates of extinct species can lead to establishing many hypotheses about the extinct animals. This work is focused on estimating the bite forces of an extinct cat Smilodon fatalis . Bite forces were estimated ...
Efficient retroviral transduction of human epidermal stem cells using recombinant fibronectin
The epidermis is an attractive target for gene therapy because it is easily accessible and shows great potential as an ectopic site for protein delivery in vivo. Genetically modified epidermal keratinocytes are used to ...
High yields of natural products in recombinant microorganisms using regulatory factors
Control of genetic expression, which is traditionally considered as protein's job, can also be achieved by small mRNA sequences located in 5'-UTR of any gene widely recognized as 'riboswitches'. These riboswitches control ...
Theoretical and experimental investigation of gap junctional conductance and permeability
Gap junctions are intercellular pores providing the primary means for direct exchange between cells, of ions and metabolites up to molecular weights of about 1000. They are essential for normal physiological function and ...
Remote sensing and hydrological modeling of burn scars
This study examined the potential usefulness of combining remote sensing data with hydrologic models and mapping tools available from Geographic Information Systems (GIS), to evaluate the effects of wildfire. Four subprojects ...
Biophysical effects of dimyristoylphosphatidylserine on electroporation-induced skin transport regions
DMPS is known to enhance the transdermal transport of small polar solutes by electroporation significantly. Understanding the modus operandi of this enhancement is essential for the further improvement and development of ...
Micromachined polymeric scaffold with neuron factor gradient for guided spiral ganglion neuron growth
Over 50 million people suffer from acquired hearing loss due to permanent damage to hair cells currently treatable by only cochlear implants. The damaged hair cell in turn causes the demise of spiral ganglion neuron, ...
