Cellular systems implanted into an injured nerve may produce growth factors or extracellular matrix molecules, modulate the inflammatory process and eventually improve nerve regeneration. In the present study, we evaluated the therapeutic value of human umbilical cord matrix MSCs (HMSCs) on rat sciatic nerve after axonotmesis injury associated to Vivosorb®(More)
Peripheral nerves have the intrinsic capacity of self-regeneration after traumatic injury but the extent of the regeneration is often very poor. Increasing evidence demonstrates that mesenchymal stem/stromal cells (MSCs) may play an important role in tissue regeneration through the secretion of soluble trophic factors that enhance and assist in repair by(More)
Tissue regeneration over a large defect with a subsequent satisfactory functional recovery still stands as a major problem in areas such as nerve regeneration or bone healing. The routine technique for the reconstruction of a nerve gap is the use of autologous nerve grafting, but still with severe complications. Over the last decades several attempts have(More)
We report here 1) the synthesis and properties of a new macromolecular carbonic anhydrase inhibitor, Prontosil-dextran, 2) its application to determine the localization of a previously described extracellular carbonic anhydrase in skeletal muscle, and 3) the application of a recently published histochemical technique using dansylsulfonamide to the same(More)
Prontosil, a carbonic anhydrase inhibitor of orange-red colour, is used to visualize carbonic anhydrase bands during isoelectric focusing in polyacrylamide gels. 5-60 ng of the sulfonamide Prontosil are added to the 100-200 microliters samples before application to the gels. Bound Prontosil moves into the gel together with carbonic anhydrase and stains the(More)
