      The A and B fragments of normal type I procollagen have a similar thermal stability to proteinase digestion but are selectively destabilized by structural mutations 

      Constantinou-Deltas, Constantinos D.; VOGEL, B. E.; JEFFREY, J. J.; PROCKOP, D. J. (1987)
      Previous studies demonstrated that the thermal stability of the procollagen triple helix can be assayed by digesting the protein for short periods with high concentrations of trypsin and chymotrypsin. Here we cleaved human ...

      Down-regulation of glutatione S-transferase α 4 (hGSTA4) in the muscle of thermally injured patients is indicative of susceptibility to bacterial infection 

      Apidianakis, Yiorgos; Que, Y. -A; Xu, W.; Tegos, G. P.; Zimniak, P.; Hamblin, M. R.; Tompkins, R. G.; Xiao, W.; Rahme, L. G. (2012)
      Patients with severe burns are highly susceptible to bacterial infection. While immunosuppression facilitates infection, the contribution of soft tissues to infection beyond providing a portal for bacterial entry remains ...

      Qualitative visual image analysis of bruise age determination: a survey. 

      Dimitrova, T.; Georgieva, L.; Pattichis, Constantinos S.; Neofytou, Marios S. (2006)
      The evaluation of bruise color imaging is a very important task in forensic medicine. However, there is no standardized methodology in carrying out this task. In this paper, an attempt was made to review the different ...

      The trapped human experiment 

      Huo, R.; Agapiou, Agapios; Bocos-Bintintan, V.; Brown, L. J.; Burns, C.; Creaser, C. S.; Devenport, N. A.; Gao-Lau, B.; Guallar-Hoyas, C.; Hildebrand, L.; Malkar, A.; Martin, H. J.; Moll, V. H.; Patel, P.; Ratiu, A.; Reynolds, J. C.; Sielemann, S.; Slodzynski, R.; Statheropoulos, Miltiades K.; Turner, M. A.; Vautz, W.; Wright, V. E.; Thomas, Charles Lawrence Paul (2011)
      This experiment observed the evolution of metabolite plumes from a human trapped in a simulation of a collapsed building. Ten participants took it in turns over five days to lie in a simulation of a collapsed building and ...
