This invention can control the motion of a movement impaired limb by electrical stimulation which is synchronously applied in response to a motion sensor on the joint of the opposite healthy limb to mirror the voluntary movement of the healthy limb.
A new simple method for increasing antibacterial properties of porphyrin derivatives has been invented. Combined with our patent pending porphyrin, we propose our new photodynamic antibacterial therapy.
We developed a highly efficient method for isolating murine and human bone-derived small stem cells (BD SSCs) using enzymatic treatment. These BD SSCs showed different gene expression profiles compared with those of known stem cells.Therefore, these BD SSCs will be an alternative cell source of regenerative medicine.
We have found that the plasminogen activator inhibitor 1 (PAI-1) in humans is related to premature birth and abortion. That is, by using, as an index the PAI-1 activity, suggesting that it is possible to determine the risk of premature birth and abortion.
