Mesenchymal stromal cells (MSC) have been suggested to have beneficial effects on animal models of traumatic brain injury (TBI), owing to their neurotrophic and immunomodulatory properties. Adipose tissue-derived stromal cells (ASCs) are multipotent MSC that can be harvested with minimally invasive methods, show a high proliferative capacity, low(More)
OBJECTIVE Waldenström's macroglobulinemia (WM) is a low-grade lymphoplasmacytoid lymphoma characterized by production of monoclonal immunoglobulin M (IgM). The present study was undertaken with the aim of developing a novel nonobese diabetic/severe combined immunodeficient (NOD/SCID) mouse model of WM. MATERIALS AND METHODS Pairs of bone particles derived(More)
Neural precursor cells (NPCs) located in the subgranular zone (SGZ) of the dentate gyrus (DG) give rise to thousands of new cells every day, mainly hippocampal neurons, which are integrated into existing neuronal circuits. Aging and chronic degenerative disorders have been shown to impair hippocampal neurogenesis, but the consequence of inflammation is(More)
Structural and functional dissociation between the septal and the temporal part of the dentate gyrus predispose for possible differentiations in the ongoing neurogenesis process of the adult hippocampus. In this study, BrdU-dated subpopulations of the rat septal and temporal dentate gyrus (coexpressing GFAP, DCX, NeuN, calretinin, calbindin, S100, caspase-3(More)
