OBJECTIVES Angiogenesis, the process of formation of blood vessels, is essential for many physiological as well as pathological processes. It has been shown that human adipose tissue contains a population of non-characterized cells, called stromal-vascular fraction (SVF) cells, which are able to differentiate into several lineages. The aim of this study was… (More)
BACKGROUND Obesity and its complications lead to vascular injury, atherosclerosis, diabetes and pathological angiogenesis. One of the models to study the obesity and its entanglements is the New Zealand Obese mice model. Aim of this study was to check the effect of high fat diet on changes in biochemical parameters as well as on process of angiogenesis in… (More)
Leptin is prompt to drive angiogenesis, effecting proper vascularisation. Tissue remodeling (including adipose organ) is associated with the angiogenic response. The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of hyperleptinemia on angiogenesis in subcutaneous (s.c.) in vivo matrigel model in mice on a high fat (HF) diet. HF promoted adipose tissue… (More)
OBJECTIVES Endothelial cells and their progenitors play an important role in angiogenesis that is essential for organogenesis and tissue remodelling, as well as for inflammatory responses and carcinogenesis in all periods of life. In the present study, the authors concentrated on the direct effect of beta-carotene (BC) on human umbilical cord-originated… (More)
Progenitor cells have been extensively studied and therapeutically applied in tissue reconstructive therapy. Stromal vascular fraction (SVF) cells, which are derived from adipose tissue, may represent a potential source of the cells which undergo phenotypical differentiation into many lineages both in vitro as well as in vivo. The goal of this study was to… (More)
Neutropenia is the most often side effect during antineoplastic treatment. In this article current recommendations for clinical applications of granulocyte and granulocyto-macrophage hematopoietic factors and possibility of protection of neutropenia, and its serious complications in pediatric oncology are presented.
