Falls and bone fractures are important causes of morbidity and mortality in the elderly. The objective of this study was to identify the degree of consistency between the anticholinergic scales used for patients diagnosed with...Read More
Favorable skeletal benefit/risk of long-term denosumab therapy: A virtual-twin analysis of fractures prevented relative to skeletal safety events observed.
Antiresorptive therapies reduce fracture risk; however, long-term bone turnover inhibition may raise concerns about rare, but serious, skeletal adverse events-atypical femoral fracture (AFF) and osteonecrosis of the jaw (ONJ)....Read More
Radiofrequency echographic multi spectrometry for the prediction of incident fragility fractures: A 5-year follow-up study.
To investigate the effectiveness of the T-score values provided by Radiofrequency Echographic Multi Spectrometry (REMS) in the identification of patients at risk for incident osteoporotic fractures.A population of Caucasian...Read More
Association between lower back pain and lower extremity pain among young volleyball players: A cross-sectional study.
Lower back pain (LBP), as well as lower extremity injuries, are major problems among young volleyball players. Nevertheless, only few studies have focused on the relationship between lower extremity injuries and LBP.This study...Read More
Investigation of the Effect of Secreted Factors from Mesenchymal Stem Cells on Disc Cells from Degenerated Discs.
Low back pain is experienced by a large number of people in western countries and may be caused and influenced by many different pathologies and psychosocial factors including disc degeneration. Disc degeneration involves the...Read More
Accelerating bone defects healing in calvarial defect model using 3D cultured bone marrow-derived mesenchymal stem cells on demineralized bone particle scaffold.
Bone defects are usually difficult to be regenerated due to pathological states or the size of the injury. Researchers are focusing on tissue engineering approaches in order to drive the regenerative events, using stem cells to...Read More
Under the condition of LPS/IFN-γ activation, macrophage metabolism is conversed from oxidative phosphorylation to glycolysis. In the present work, we analyzed whether glycolysis could affect IL-1β expression through altering...Read More
Struma ovarii is a rare, usually benign ovarian tumour with malignancy occurring in 3000 µg/L following recombinant TSH administration prior to her first dose of I131. At 25 months following radioiodine treatment, she is in...Read More
Inhibition of PTP1B Phosphorylation Enhances Early Adhesion of Mesenchymal Stem Cells to Facilitate Fabrication of Tissue-Engineered Bone.
Enhancement of cell-matrix adhesion is preferable and crucial in various fields of tissue engineering. Integrins are important receptors that facilitate cell-matrix adhesion, mediated by intracellular molecules and crosstalk...Read More
