Inhibition of miR-153 ameliorates ischemia/reperfusion-induced cardiomyocytes apoptosis by regulating Nrf2/HO-1 signaling in rats

Previous in vitro studies demonstrated that suppression of microRNAs might protect cardiomyocytes and neurons against oxygen–glucose deprivation and reoxygenation (OGD/R)-induced cell apoptosis. However, wheth... Source: Biomedical Engineering Online

Low-cost equipment for the evaluation of reach and grasp in post-stroke individuals: a pilot study

Reach–grasp movements are motor components commonly affected after stroke and directly related to the independence of these individuals. Evaluations of these activities can be performed using clinical instrume... Source: Biomedical Engineering Online

Detecting focal cortical dysplasia lesions from FLAIR-negative images based on cortical thickness

Focal cortical dysplasia (FCD) is a neuronal migration disorder and is a major cause of drug-resistant epilepsy. However, many focal abnormalities remain undetected during routine visual inspection, and many p... Source: Biomedical Engineering Online

Data anomalies and apparent reporting errors in ‘Randomized controlled trial testing weight loss and abdominal obesity outcomes of moxibustion’

Randomized Controlled Trials (RCTs) are the best method to determine causal effects for treatments if they are well done and well reported. Good evidence about proposed treatments for obesity is needed, and Hs... Source: Biomedical Engineering Online
