Summary of "Multiparametric MR Investigation of Proteoglycan Diffusivity, T Relaxation, and Concentration in an Ex Vivo Model of Intervertebral Disc Degeneration."

Proteoglycan (PG) is a major component of the intervertebral disc extracellular matrix (ECM) that acts to hydrate the disc nucleus. Early detection of PG degradation is valuable for both diagnosis and preclinical research of intervertebral disc degeneration (IVDD).

Anisotropic Diffusivity Tensor in Articular Cartilage: Effective Medium Approach.

Due to the avascular nature of articular cartilage, molecular transport occurs via interstitial fluid flow as well as diffusion. Diffusion in cartilage has been studied experimentally, but no mathemat...

Noninvasive characterization of In Situ forming implant diffusivity using diffusion-weighted MRI.

In situ forming implants (ISFIs) form a solid drug-eluting depot, releasing drug for an extended period of time after a minimally-invasive injection. Clinical use of ISFIs has been limited because man...

Modeling of Drug Diffusion Based on Concentration Profiles in Healthy and Damaged Human Skin.

Based on experimental drug concentration profiles in healthy as well as tape-stripped ex vivo human skin, we model the penetration of the antiinflammatory drug dexamethasone into the skin layers by t...

Predicting Effective Diffusivity of Porous Media from Images by Deep Learning.

We report the application of machine learning methods for predicting the effective diffusivity (D) of two-dimensional porous media from images of their structures. Pore structures are built using reco...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Statistical formulations or analyses which, when applied to data and found to fit the data, are then used to verify the assumptions and parameters used in the analysis. Examples of statistical models are the linear model, binomial model, polynomial model, two-parameter model, etc.

In vivo methods of screening investigative anticancer drugs, biologic response modifiers or radiotherapies. Human tumor tissue or cells are transplanted into mice or rats followed by tumor treatment regimens. A variety of outcomes are monitored to assess antitumor effectiveness.

Theoretical models simulating behavior or activities in nursing, including nursing care, management and economics, theory, assessment, research, and education. Some examples of these models include Orem Self-Care Model, Roy Adaptation Model, and Rogers Life Process Model.

A method of measuring the effects of a biologically active substance using an intermediate in vivo or in vitro tissue or cell model under controlled conditions. It includes virulence studies in animal fetuses in utero, mouse convulsion bioassay of insulin, quantitation of tumor-initiator systems in mouse skin, calculation of potentiating effects of a hormonal factor in an isolated strip of contracting stomach muscle, etc.

A principle of estimation in which the estimates of a set of parameters in a statistical model are those quantities minimizing the sum of squared differences between the observed values of a dependent variable and the values predicted by the model.
