- Intra-brain microinjection of human mesenchymal stem cells decreases allodynia in neuropathic mice. Siniscalco, Dario; Giordano, Catia; Galderisi, Umberto; Luongo, Livio; Alessio, Nicola; Di Bernardo, Giovanni; De Novellis, Vito; Rossi, Francesco; Maione, Sabatino // Cellular & Molecular Life Sciences;Feb2010, Vol. 67 Issue 4, p655
Neuropathic pain is a very complex disease, involving several molecular pathways. Current available drugs are usually not acting on the several mechanisms underlying the generation and propagation of pain. We used spared nerve injury model of neuropathic pain to assess the possible use of human...
- Preconditioning of Mesenchymal Stem Cells Increases Survival of The Cells: An In Vitro Study. Mohammadi Roushandeh, A.; Mortazavi, M.; Habibi Roudkenar, M. // Cell Journal (Yakhteh);Summer 2013 Supplement 1, Vol. 15 Issue Sup 1, p60
Objective: A growing number of experimental studies highlight the potential of stem cell transplantation as a novel therapeutic approach for diseases. This massive loss of stem cells post-engraftment is an impediment that lessens the effectiveness of cell transplantation therapy. Present study...
- Drug-resistant TB defeated by stem cells. MacKenzie, Debora // New Scientist;1/18/2014, Vol. 221 Issue 2952, p12
The article discusses a study by Markus Maeurer of the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm, Sweden in which 16 people with drug-resistant tuberculosis (TB) in Belarus had mesenchymal stromal cells (MSCs) taken from their bodies, which were then multiplied and injected back into their blood.
- Allogeneic haematopoietic stem cell transplantation: current status and future outlook. Aschan, Johan // British Medical Bulletin;Jan2006, Vol. 77/78 Issue 1, p23
Allogeneic haematopoietic stem cell transplantation (allo-SCT) is an established treatment of haematological malignancies and other immunohaematopoietic disorders. The use of unrelated donors and cord blood (CB) grafts has increased the possibilities of finding a donor, and results are...

- Bone marrow mesenchymal stem cell transplantation for treatment of emphysemic rats. Yumiao Zhao; Aiguo Xu; Qinfu Xu; Wei Zhao; Dandan Li; Xiang Fang; Yinlong Ren // International Journal of Clinical & Experimental Medicine;2014, Vol. 7 Issue 4, p968
Objective: To study the efficacy of bone marrow mesenchymal stem cell (MSC) transplantation to treat pulmonary emphysema in rats. Methods: Sixty rats were randomly divided into control, model and transplantation groups. Each group contained 20 rats. Rat models of emphysema were established via...
- The Efficacy of Mesenchymal Stem Cell Transplantation in Caustic Esophagus Injury: An Experimental Study. Kantarcioglu, Murat; Caliskan, Bahadir; Demirci, Hakan; Karacalioglu, Ozgur; Kekilli, Murat; Polat, Zulfikar; Gunal, Armagan; Akinci, Melih; Uysal, Cagri; Eksert, Sami; Gurel, Hasan; Celebi, Gurkan; Avcu, Ferit; Ugur Ural, Ali; Bagci, Sait // Stem Cells International;2014, p1
Introduction. Ingestion of corrosive substances may lead to stricture formation in esophagus as a late complication. Full thickness injury seems to exterminate tissue stem cells of esophagus. Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) can differentiate into specific cell lineages and have the capacity of...
- Bone Marrow Mesenchymal Cells Improve Muscle Function in a Skeletal Muscle Re-Injury Model. Andrade, Bruno M.; Baldanza, Marcelo R.; Ribeiro, Karla C.; Porto, Anderson; Peçanha, Ramon; Fortes, Fabio S. A.; Zapata-Sudo, Gisele; Campos-de-Carvalho, Antonio C.; Goldenberg, Regina C. S.; Werneck-de-Castro, João Pedro // PLoS ONE;Jun2015, Vol. 10 Issue 6, p1
Skeletal muscle injury is the most common problem in orthopedic and sports medicine, and severe injury leads to fibrosis and muscle dysfunction. Conventional treatment for successive muscle injury is currently controversial, although new therapies, like cell therapy, seem to be promise. We...
