Background: Osteoarthritis is a leading cause of disability in developed nations. In Australia it afflicts 16.5% of the adult population. Total joint arthroplasty is considered the treatment of choice for end stage ...
Risk factors for superficial wound complications in hip and knee arthroplasty
Superficial wound complications have been consistently implicated in the development of prosthetic joint infection. This cohort study aimed to determine perioperative risk factors associated with superficial wound ...
Poised Chromatin at the ZEB1 Promoter Enables Breast Cancer Cell Plasticity and Enhances Tumorigenicity
(CELL PRESS, 2013-07-27)
The recent discovery that normal and neoplastic epithelial cells re-enter the stem cell state raised the intriguing possibility that the aggressiveness of carcinomas derives not from their existing content of cancer stem ...
Cell Plasticity and Heterogeneity in Cancer
(AMER ASSOC CLINICAL CHEMISTRY, 2013-01-27)

(IMPACT JOURNALS LLC, 2017-04-01)
Cybrid technology was used to replace Leber hereditary optic neuropathy (LHON) causing mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) mutations from patient-specific fibroblasts with wildtype mtDNA, and mutation-free induced pluripotent stem ...
Outcomes of unplanned sarcoma excision: impact of residual disease
This study aimed to compare the oncological results between unplanned excision (UE) and planned excision (PE) of malignant soft tissue tumor and to examine the impact of residual tumor (ReT) after UE. Nonmetastatic soft ...
