Automated tracking of tumor invasion in three dimensional extracellular matrix analogs and a novel stochastic analysis of the cell trajectories
Tumor cell migration and invasion of body tissues are prerequisite mediators for lymphatic or hematogenous cancer dissemination. To date, there is insufficient understanding of what triggers the metastatic cascade, and of ...
The application of digital image analysis techniques to studies of lymphocyte function
Video microscopy and digital image analysis methods were developed for studying immune cell function. Firstly, fluorescence energy transfer spectroscopy was used to monitor the evolution of the intercellular contact area ...
Anaerobic digestion process control using a knowledge-based system
Much attention has been devoted to the design and construction of wastewater treatment plants. However, relatively little attention has been devoted to plant operations. Knowledge based or expert systems are oriented toward ...
Characterization of T-lymphocyte-target cell adhesion using a parallel plate flow chamber
A 100 fold range of shear stress (.04-4 dynes/cm$\sp2$) was used to demonstrate that the level of shear used in conjugate enumeration assays affects the absolute magnitude of CTL-TC conjugates observed. Kinetic analysis ...
The influence of culture environment on antigen shedding from the surface of colon cancer cells
The roles of some nutrients and environmental factors on CEA synthesis and release has been determined for the LS180 colon cancer cell line. When these cells were grown on various carbohydrate sources, cells grown on mannose ...
Injectable, in situ polymerizable, biodegradable scaffolds based on poly(propylene fumarate) for guided bone regeneration
Poly(propylene fumarate) (PPF) was developed as a scaffold to guide bone regeneration. Synthesis of this material via refined reaction pathways led to increased purity and higher molecular weights of this unsaturated, ...
