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...
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...
The aim of the study was to compare the diagnostic accuracy of multiparametric magnetic resonance imaging (mpMRI), multiparametric ultrasound (mpUS) and US/MRI fusion imaging techniques in the detecti...
Relaxation and changes in the transmembrane potential of vascular smooth muscle induced by ORM-3819, a novel inodilating compound, were investigated in isolated porcine coronary arteries. Isometric to...
Conduct a first in vivo study on the large deformation stress relaxation behavior of the human scalp.
To investigate whether multiparametric MRI (mp-MRI) in patients with low-risk prostate cancer can improve the selection of patients suitable for Active Surveillance and have a relevance in...
The aim of this study is a first evaluation of the effectiveness of the YoBEKA Program (Yoga, Movement, Relaxation, Concentration and Mindfulness) to evaluate potential effects in stress r...
To determine the reproducibility of a single quantitative multiparametric MRI for the assessment of body composition and multiple organ structures.
Social Anxiety Disorder (SAD) is classified as a phobic (anxious) disorder in which the patient experiences anxiety in social interactions, during which he or she might be judged or social...

A type of extracellularly deposited substance composed of an amyloid protein and additional components including HEPARAN SULFATE PROTEOGLYCAN; LAMININ; COLLAGEN TYPE IV; SERUM AMYLOID P-COMPONENT; and APOLIPOPROTEINS E which together form characteristic amyloid fibrils. The core of amyloid fibrils is formed by the stacking of overlapping beta-pleated sheet domains of the amyloid protein. There are many different amyloid proteins that have been found forming the core of the fibrils in vivo. However, amyloid can be formed from any protein that exposes beta-pleated strand conformations during unfolding or refolding. A common characteristic of amyloid is the ability to bind such dyes as CONGO RED and thioflavine.
Agents that induce various degrees of analgesia; depression of consciousness, circulation, and respiration; relaxation of skeletal muscle; reduction of reflex activity; and amnesia. There are two types of general anesthetics, inhalation and intravenous. With either type, the arterial concentration of drug required to induce anesthesia varies with the condition of the patient, the desired depth of anesthesia, and the concomitant use of other drugs. (From AMA Drug Evaluations Annual, 1994, p.173)
A class of drugs that act by selective inhibition of calcium influx through cell membranes or on the release and binding of calcium in intracellular pools. Since they are inducers of vascular and other smooth muscle relaxation, they are used in the drug therapy of hypertension and cerebrovascular spasms, as myocardial protective agents, and in the relaxation of uterine spasms.
