A comparison of human and porcine acellular dermal tissues in the subcutaneous space of a rat model
The study compared the host response to a human and a porcine acellular dermal tissue implanted in the subcutaneous space of a rat model. The human and porcine acellular grafts were surgically implanted in the subcutaneous ...
Acellular dermal tissue study: an ultrastructural evaluation of human and porcine derived tissues in a rat model
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the host response of a human and a porcine derived acellular dermal tissue (ADT) implanted in the subcutaneous tissue of a rat model. Two subcutaneous pockets were surgically created ...
Porous polyethylene for tissue engineering applications in diabetic rats treated with calcitonin: Histomorphometric analysis
Purpose: The purpose of this work was to study the bone tissue reaction after porous polyethylene (Polipore) implantation into surgical defects in the parietal bones of rats with streptozotocin-induced diabetes, treated ...
Fine structure of the boundary tissue of the seminiferous tubuli of the vampire bat (Desmodus rotundus, G.; Microchiroptera).
Structurally the boundary tissue of the vampire bat seminiferous tubuli showed 2 to 5 layers of connective tissue in which elongated contractile cells and lamellar and/or fibrillar collagen were noticed. This boundary ...
Comparison of subcutaneous connective tissue responses among three different formulations of gutta-percha used in thermatic techniques.
A study of the subcutaneous connective tissue response of 24 white rats to three different formulations of gutta-percha was undertaken. The prepared specimens were examined under the light microscope after intervals of 7, ...
Refining the intestinal motility test in mice to reduce animal stress
A new protocol using 3-h fast animal for intestinal motility test was developed in our laboratory aiming the 3R's concept to reduce the stress of animals. Our results may aid in formulating recommendations that can be ...
