Continuous renewal of neurons throughout life in the olfactory system is often thought to be partially attributable to specialized glial cells called olfactory ensheathing cells (OECs). Hitherto, several studies have demonstrated that transplantation of OECs is one of the most promising strategies available to augment axonal regeneration and functional(More)
Our recent studies demonstrated that mature astrocytes from spinal cord can be reprogrammed in vitro and in vivo to generate neural stem/progenitor cells (NSPCs) following treatment with conditioned medium collected from mechanically injured astrocytes. However, little is known regarding the molecular mechanisms underlying the reprogramming of astrocytes.(More)
Compelling evidence from animal models and clinical studies suggest that transplantation of olfactory ensheathing cells (OECs), specialized glia in the olfactory system, combined with specific training may be therapeutically useful in the central nervous system (CNS) injuries and neurodegenerative diseases. The unique function of OECs could mainly attribute(More)
Ginsenoside Rd (Rd), one of the main active ingredients in Panax ginseng, has multifunctional activity via different mechanisms and neuroprotective effects that are exerted probably via its antioxidant or free radical scavenger action. However, the effects of Rd on spinal cord mitochondrial dysfunction and underlying mechanisms are still obscure. In this(More)
A well-defined three-dimensional (3-D) reconstruction of bone-cartilage transitional structures is crucial for the osteochondral restoration. This paper presents an accurate, computationally efficient and semi-automated algorithm for the alignment and segmentation of two-dimensional (2-D) serial to construct the 3-D model of bonecartilage transitional(More)
