BACKGROUND This work aimed to study the homing evidence and the reparative effect of mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) in the healing process of induced osteoarthritis in experimental animal model (donkeys). METHODS Twenty-seven donkeys were equally divided into 3 groups based on the observation period after induction of arthritis (3, 6 and 9 weeks) to(More)
We achieved possibility of isolation, characterization human umbilical cord blood endothelial progenitor cells (EPCs), examination potency of EPCs to form new blood vessels and differentiation into cardiomyoctes in canines with acute myocardial infarction (AMI). EPCs were separated and cultured from umbilical cord blood. Their phenotypes were confirmed by(More)
Competing concepts exist regarding surgery for instance of the cleft lip and palate to date. Morphology-based simulations at histological scale may one day be used to help the surgeon predict the possible outcome of a variety of approaches. It however can be a challenge to generate volume meshes that are applicable to the mathematical modelling of(More)
In the present study, a semi-automatic segmentation and classification algorithm is proposed for the analysis of histological and cytological images. In view of the fact that histological and cytological images usually exhibit poor contrast and blurred outlines, classical segmentation algorithms often fail to detect relevant structures. A new algorithm for(More)
