A model of normal and depressed conduction in cardiac strands
Mathematical modeling of the electrical activity of a single cardiac cell and of strands of cardiac cells are problems of fundamental interest in the area of electrophysiology. New and increasingly comprehensive data on ...
Effect of shear stress on leukocyte adhesion to vascular endothelium
The effect of flow on the adhesion of neutrophils (PMNL) to vascular endothelium was investigated using a parallel plate flow chamber. Human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVEC) were cultured on a glass slide which was ...
Fibronectin and von Willebrand factor mediated sickle erythrocyte adhesion to human endothelial cells under venous flow conditions
Sickle erythrocytes have previously been demonstrated to be abnormally adhesive to human endothelial cells in both static incubation assays and under venous flow conditions. The extent to which human fibronectin and human ...
Enzymatic digestion of the lens as an alternative to cataract surgery
The purpose of this research was to determine the effects of enzymatic digestion on the human lens, with the ultimate goal of rendering cataract surgery obsolete. A system for measuring the consistency of a lens, using an ...
