PURPOSE To prospectively evaluate the influence of superparamagnetic iron oxide (SPIO) or ultrasmall SPIO (USPIO) particles on the surface epitope pattern of adult mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) by regulating the expression of transferrin receptor and to prospectively evaluate the influence of transfection agents (TAs) on the uptake of SPIO or USPIO(More)
Adult mesenchymal stem cells (aMSCs) are a stem cell population present in bone marrow, which can be isolated and expanded in culture and characterized. Due to the lack of specific surface markers, it is difficult to separate the MSCs from bone marrow directly. Here, we present a novel method using high-specific nucleic acids called aptamers. Porcine MSCs(More)
BACKGROUND The antitumour immune response plays an important role in the prognosis of melanoma. High numbers of circulating regulatory T cells have been associated with rapid disease progression. OBJECTIVES To assess the influence of forkhead box protein (FOXP)3, CD1a and langerin expression on the prognosis of primary melanoma. METHODS We analysed 185(More)
The administration of sodium bicarbonate (NaHCO3) or 'milk shakes' to Standardbred horses before racing is widespread. This study analysed nonrace day (CTL) and prerace venous acid-base values from Standardbred horses racing in Pennsylvania (PA) and New Jersey (NJ). Mean +/- s.d. CTL bicarbonate (HCO3) and base excess (BE) values, for a group of horses(More)
