Basic calcium phosphate crystals and osteoarthritis pathogenesis: novel pathways and potential targets.

Basic calcium phosphate (BCP) crystals have long been associated with the pathogenesis of osteoarthritis. As our knowledge concerning BCP crystals in osteoarthritis expands, so does the potential to d...

Electrolytic coloration and spectral properties of O(2-)- and Mg(2+)-codoped LiF crystals.

O(2-)- and Mg(2+)-codoped (OMC) LiF crystals are colored electrolytically at various temperatures and voltages using a pointed cathode and a flat anode. F, F2, F3(+), Mg-perturbed F and Mg-perturbed F...

High-efficiency broadband anti-Stokes emission from Yb3+-doped bulk crystals.

We investigate the broadband anti-Stokes emission (BASE) from Yb3+-doped crystals with a laser diode (LD) pumping at 940 nm. Our experiment reveals that Yb3+-doped crystals with random cracks are able...

Modeling of Mechanical Stress Exerted by Cholesterol Crystallization on Atherosclerotic Plaques.

Plaque rupture is the critical cause of cardiovascular thrombosis, but the detailed mechanisms are not fully understood. Recent studies have found abundant cholesterol crystals in ruptured plaques, an...

Photoelastic properties of NaBi(MoO4)2 crystals.

In this work we present the results of comprehensive studies of the piezo-optic and elasto-optic effects in NaBi(MoO4)2 crystals. The full matrices of the piezo-optic and elasto-optic coefficients for...

Cysteamine Eye Drops to Treat Corneal Crystals in Cystinosis

This study will continue to evaluate the long term safety and effectiveness of cysteamine eye drops for treating cystine crystals in the corneas of patients with cystinosis. These drops a...

Immune Effects of Oral Insulin in Relatives at Risk for Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus (TN20)

The study is a 2 arm, multi-center, randomized, open-labeled clinical trial designed to assess the effects of varying doses and schedules of oral insulin on immunological and metabolic mar...

New Cysteamine Eye Drops Formulation to Treat Corneal Crystals in Cystinosis

This study will evaluate the safety and effectiveness of a new formulation of eye drops used to treat cystine crystals that form in the corneas of patients with cystinosis. Cystinosis is ...

Monitoring Brain Activity in Human Brain Injury

The outcome of brain injury (physical or stroke) may be related to a brain electrical phenomenon known as Cortical Spreading Depression (CSD). This is a brief cessation of function in a l...

Efficacy of Topical Cysteamine in Nephropathic Cyctinosis

The aim of this study is to evaluate the efficacy of topical cysteamine eye drops in the treatment of corneal cystine crystals deposits in patients with nephropathic cystinosis.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Tissue NECROSIS in any area of the brain, including the CEREBRAL HEMISPHERES, the CEREBELLUM, and the BRAIN STEM. Brain infarction is the result of a cascade of events initiated by inadequate blood flow through the brain that is followed by HYPOXIA and HYPOGLYCEMIA in brain tissue. Damage may be temporary, permanent, selective or pan-necrosis.

Localized reduction of blood flow to brain tissue due to arterial obstruction or systemic hypoperfusion. This frequently occurs in conjunction with brain hypoxia (HYPOXIA, BRAIN). Prolonged ischemia is associated with BRAIN INFARCTION.

Bleeding within the brain as a result of penetrating and nonpenetrating CRANIOCEREBRAL TRAUMA. Traumatically induced hemorrhages may occur in any area of the brain, including the CEREBRUM; BRAIN STEM (see BRAIN STEM HEMORRHAGE, TRAUMATIC); and CEREBELLUM.

A condition characterized by long-standing brain dysfunction or damage, usually of three months duration or longer. Potential etiologies include BRAIN INFARCTION; certain NEURODEGENERATIVE DISORDERS; CRANIOCEREBRAL TRAUMA; ANOXIA, BRAIN; ENCEPHALITIS; certain NEUROTOXICITY SYNDROMES; metabolic disorders (see BRAIN DISEASES, METABOLIC); and other conditions.

Neoplasms of the intracranial components of the central nervous system, including the cerebral hemispheres, basal ganglia, hypothalamus, thalamus, brain stem, and cerebellum. Brain neoplasms are subdivided into primary (originating from brain tissue) and secondary (i.e., metastatic) forms. Primary neoplasms are subdivided into benign and malignant forms. In general, brain tumors may also be classified by age of onset, histologic type, or presenting location in the brain.
