    J Biomech 42:1592-7. 2009
    ..Therefore, SS induces detrimental effects on the mechanical integrity of healing PTs, and the response to RS was different between regenerate and residual tissues, the latter of which took longer period to reach NSS level...

    Biomechanics Laboratory, Department of Mechanical Science and Bioengineering, Graduate School of Engineering Science, Osaka University, Toyonaka, Osaka, Japan
    Biomed Mater Eng 17:77-85. 2007
    ..The properties of fascicles from the residual tissue were similar to those from normal tendons, which was very much different from those of the bulk residual tissue that were greatly deteriorated by the removal of the central portion...

    Medical Engineering Division and IRC in Biomedical Materials, School of Engineering and Materials Science, Queen Mary, University of London, London, UK
    Connect Tissue Res 51:434-44. 2010
    ..The present results suggest that the metabolic balance was shifted in favor of catabolism by the application of a small number of tensile strain cycles, whereas an extended number stimulates strong anti-catabolic effects...
