Autologous bone grafts are used to reconstruct mandibular bone defects because autologous bone is highly osteogenic and does not elicit immune reactions. Because harvesting these grafts requires an additional invasive surgical procedure, we attempted to construct bone grafts from decellularized xenogeneic bone. Fragments of porcine femur cortical bone were assembled into pairs and fastened together using suture thread.
The dialysis fluid flow and solute removal performance of newly developed dialyzers and a downsized dialyzer were evaluated using a dimensionless correlation equation related to the mass transfer coefficient of the dialysate-side film in a mass transfer model, which was used in quantitative analyses in our previous study.
Melanoma is a malignant tumor occurring typically in the skin.
Good mass transfer and high cell density culture are required for bioreactors using animal cells.
Ventricular activation time (AT [ms]) is the time required to activate the ventricle electrically.
To relieve or manage stress, objective assessment of stress is required.
