in a culture dish. The bone fragments (BFs) were further incubated at 37°C in a humidified incubator under an atmosphere of 5% CO 2 . The primary human osteoblasts started growing out from the fragments of bone after a few days, and the cells almost reached confluence within 2 weeks with changes in the medium 2 times per week. For each isolation, the cells were tested for mycoplasma contamination and bacterial contamination, and examined for typical osteoblast morphology before cryopreservation. We used primary subculture human osteoblasts (passage No. 3) from the

chi-square test for categorical data and an unpaired t test or Mann–Whitney U test for continuous data. Receiver operating characteristic curves were used to analyze the reasonable cutoff values of selected psychosocial indices for predicting poor glycemic control. Univariate logistic regression analysis was used to assess differences between the good control and poor control groups in various characteristics. P < 0.05 was considered significant in tests of statistical inference. Results Demographic and clinical characteristics We enrolled 58 patients

detecting sequential duplications or small deletions [ 13 ]. Whole-genome screening using a microarray technique for detecting any chromosomal rearrangements including subtelomeric aberrations is currently the best available first-tier diagnostic test for individuals with MR and dysmorphism [ 14 , 15 ]. However, this technique is not available at many diagnostic laboratories because it requires a substantial investment in equipment and resources. Multiplex ligation-dependent probe amplification (MLPA) is another method for subtelomeric screening, and has the advantage
