The article presents a research on spinal ischemia. Three rats paralyzed returned to near normal ambulatory function six weeks after having received human spinal stem cells (hSSC) developed by Neuralstem Inc. In a two-month study of 16 rats with induced spinal-cord ischemia, 9 were injected with hSSCs 21 days after paralysis, seven additional rats received a medium containing no stem cells as the control group.

    Background: Bone marrow-derived mesenchymal stem cells (MSC) improve myocardial recovery after ischemia/reperfusion (I/R) injury. These effects are mediated in part by the paracrine secretion of angiogenic and tissue growth-promoting factors. Toll-like receptor 4 (TLR4) is expressed by MSC and...

    Background: Pneumoperitoneum (Pp) induces an ischemia and reperfusion (I/R) injury as a result of released oxidative stress markers. Ischemic preconditioning (IP) is one of the used methods to reduce the harmful effects of Pp, which is a mechanism for reducing organ I/R injury by a brief period...

    Ischemic preconditioning (I-PC) induced by brief episodes of ischemia and reperfusion (I/R) protects the heart against sustained I/R. Although activation of mitochondrial KATP channels (mitoKATP) interacting with reactive oxygen species (ROS) has been proposed as a key event in this process,...

    Neutropenia was induced in male Sprague-Dawley rats by administration of antineutrophil serum (ANS). A control group received an equal volume of inactive serum. After 45 minutes of unilateral complete renal ischemia the renal blood flow (RBF) was measured by an electromagnetic flow meter. The...

    The neuroprotective potential of ethanol:water (1:1) extract of rhizomes of Acorus calamus (AC-002) has been investigated in middle cerebral artery occlusion (MCAO)-induced ischaemia in rats. A significant behavioural impairment in Rota-Rod performance and grid walking was observed in rats, 72...

    The decrease of the oxygen supply at an ischemia results in the increase of generated cytotoxic superoxide anion- radical and other active forms of oxygen. Free radical processes result in irreversible injuries and death of ischemic cells. Therefore administration of the substances with...
